Remembering Names

β€œA person’s name is to him or her the sweetest and most important sound in any language.” – Dale Carnegie

Whenever I meet new people, I’m terrible with remembering their names. It would seem that the moment they tell me their name, I instantly forget it.

Lately, I have started writing down people’s names in my notes along with something I remember about them (I know, I’m Michael Scott). I will also put them under headings that refer to the context in which I met them.

An example of this might be



This has been working surprisingly well, as the moment I write a name down with a character trait, I remember it forever. Very seldom have I had to go back and review my notes.

It does make me wonder though, what memorable character trait does someone have written down in their notes about me?
