I don't have a very good memory unfortunately. Using this concept that this guy explains is a good way to The "working memory" to improve. There are a lot of things that he says that i can relate to my self.I feel like my memory is always so filled with so many things its hard to process things. I know current things that I learn or that are said to me get lost. Repeating and writing them down is important when consuming information. I did notice that he says we need to make imagery and use knowledge, experience, and support to process things in our head. I will definitely share this video to a few friends I think they can strongly benefit from it.

I enjoyed this video. Working memory is a very interesting concept. Although your brain is doing all the thinking, we never actually sit down and think about how our brain "thinks". Some people have a very photographic memory which can come in handy especially in school. It is interesting that although we learn so much information in one day, we can only remember a fraction of it.

Working memory can only last for a couple minutes. While watching this video, I could only remember four of the five things he told us to remember. It was difficult trying to answer the other questions and remember the five things he told us.
I don't know if anyone else tried it, but I followed along with his exercise and quickly realized how hard it was to remember the original five words that he said to memorize in the beginning. I found this video to be very interesting, especially with the psychology aspect of it. Almost everything that we do in life has some sort of strategy connected to it, and often, the way that the strategy is implemented is determined by experiences we have had in the past. We must relive and remember those moments that motivated us forward and also those moments that brought us down and taught us lessons. The main word that I really took from the video is "repetition". Our minds are one of the biggest mysteries and wonders of the world. What we tell ourselves will ultimately determine our attitude and perception on things. So, every day, we need to ensure that we are repeatedly feeding our minds with positive thoughts of motivation for the day, whether it be at work or at school. When we take those thoughts and put them into action, we can begin processing the goals and dreams that we have and the steps to be take. In the end, we can relive those memories and comfortably say that we lived out our lives to the highest capacity that we could obtain. Great video.
This video was very interesting. Working memory helps us to store immediate experiences and a little bit of knowledge, but we are limited to remembering about four things for about ten seconds. People who have a high working memory capacity are good story tellers, tend to solve and do well on standardized tests, have high levels of writing ability and able to reason. Peter Doolittle states that what we process we learn.

That was an interesting test. I did remember all five words. I agree with him when he says we are in a working memory world. Everyone should practice remembering things. It makes life easier and more effective. When we rememeber things we can take it and apply it to the next level. This is important in the fast pace business world.

I found this video very interesting! I have always been interested in the human mind and memory. Doolittle definitely does a good job explaining psychology and the working memory. Our brain is usually something we just use, rather than think about its working ways.
This video may be the best one so far. I would defiantly recommend my colleagues to watch this video. Humans can only remember about four things for about 10 to 20 seconds. Unless we talk to someone about it or apply it to something.

I thought this video was an interesting watch. Working memory is the part of our brains that processes information for us. However, it only has a limited capacity. When we do process information we learn. I did try his exercise to try and remember the 5 items. I could only remember four and the one I forgot I forgot almost immediately after hearing it. I also had to repeat the words out loud to myself to remember them so I think that by doing that, it helped me process the words instead of just overlooking all of them.

This video is interesting because of the working memory. Although I look at it as short term memory, it's the RAM of our brain so to speak. I find it difficult to think that most people wouldn't remember more than 4 things at one time. But there are ways people can get around our own limitations. Taking the information down in note form and then immediately analyzing it helps with this problem. Also continually going over the info. It's easier to integrate our knowledge into the new knowledge. Imagery is a major step since we have the ability to self reflect and imagine things. And then organizing things into ways we can analyze our world is extremely important to utilizing our working memory. Lastly support and processing is how we learn. I've experience several situations where I couldn't efficiently use my memory and could have used these tips. I probably wouldnt share this video but it was definitely a great watch.
For some reason I found it really hard to follow this video. I understand that we have a working memory that we use to remember daily activities and situations. I think what the speaker was trying to express was not to just take notice of daily situations, but to process them and interpret them. It's one thing to have a working memory but it's another to use it to process, interpret and understand our daily lives.
The brain is amazing! Te concepts he brought up were some that I never thought of before and now will in the future. I enjoy concepts on how and why we think the way we do. I still believe ultimately we think based off of what we know and have experienced, however, his theories were great as well. A person normally only thinks about his/her brain when they are told to do so or not ever. How we think is always something I love learning about. This was a great video!

our working memory is obviously a vital aspect of our lives. those that can stay on top of their working memory and are quick to remember things will have a much easier time functioning in the work place.
This was a very interesting video. I am always fascinated by the brain's capabilities to remember certain things and process so many different things at one time. He mentioned that imagery, support and organization all help the brain's working memory. I find that this is very true. I always try to picture an image to help me remember something, for example when I can remember reading something I can remember what the page looked like in the book. Support is also a good way to remember something. If someone tells you a random fact, you are more likely to remember it if they give support and reasoning behind their statement. Organization is very useful for remembering things. I am a constant list maker. Writing what I need to get done down, and in the order I want to do it, helps me remember what I need to do. The working memory is very complex and can be a useful tool in business and the workplace.
This is a great reminder video. I love the ending words if we are not processing life we are not living it. We need to embrace life and enjoy it the good times and bad. Because something only happen once so you need to live your life. I know for me i get caught up in details and worry, but i know that my working memory is saying enjoy the situation at hand.
