Never Forget Someone's Name Again With This Memory Trick

Never Forget Someone's Name Again With This Memory Trick | RMStaples Topics | Scoop.it

Sometimes one of the important aspects to career success can be something intangible like how likeable you are.

 

That vague feeling of goodwill is often determined by how genuine you seem when interacting with others. One of the first steps to showing someone you sincerely care about what they’re saying is remembering what they say--especially their name.

 

According to a Dale Carnegie training course I took last year, the sweetest sound to anyone’s ear--no matter what language it’s in--is their name. Without nailing down this first step, it can be difficult to move forward in building a genuine professional or personal relationship. Unfortunately, this can be a difficult task since someone else’s name often doesn’t mean anything to us (it’s just another word) so it’s difficult for our brains to remember it.

You spot that acquaintance at the market and begin to wave. As you walk toward each other, an emphatic “hey” slips out—followed by a startling black hole of silence.


What on Earth is her name?


“Hey girl!” Your cheeks flush as you try to decide whether to just confess or wade through a conversation without revealing your memory lapse.


Forgetting a name can make for a pretty painful social encounter, but in a professional relationship, it can be lethal.
