Interesting video. I actually tried to remember the five words and forgot one of them. Working memory is just processing things that are goings in your world at the moment. I have also walked into a room and forgot why or what I went in there for. I have sticky notes all over my work space. I look over them everyday and realize had I not written down certain things, I would have definitely forgotten to do some things.

This video made me want to go work on my times tables all over again. I didn't know that the average person can only memorize 4 things at a time. The activity he did during this video was interesting.. You wouldn't think it would be hard to memorize 5 words but I found that I only knew 4 of them at the end.. Tree, mirror, Saturn and electobe. I liked how this video made a concept into a activity to make it more interesting.
Our working memory is so limited compared to how fast the world is today. It's interesting that we can only remember 4 things at a time. We are exposed to so much new information every day with all of the technological advances. I wish we had the capacity to absorb as much information as we want to on any given day. For example, while trying to receive a college degree we are exposed to thousands of new ideas every semester, how are we supposed to remember every single thing a teacher says on a long term basis? Having the ability to process more information on a daily basis would be beneficial in the business world today.
This video gives an interesting look at how people remember things in their daily lives. This can be important for marketing executives who are trying to get people to remember their products. Knowing the psychology behind memory is a very important factor that we can use.

According to Wiki, working memory is the system that actively holds multiple pieces of transitory information in the mind, where they can be manipulated. This is what allows us to walk with a place in mind where we're going, hold a conversation, "multitask", etc. We can read something and assign meaning to it. Other memory is something triggered by our senses, whether it be a song, or smell, or taste of something that brings back a memory.
I found this video to be particularly interesting. The take away for me is that you must find some kind of way to be remembered. If you are marketing a product, company, or even yourself, you must something that makes you stand out. With so many distractions in the world today, it is easy to become lost in a shuffle of infomercials and gimmicks, so find a unique strategy and stick with it.
Peter Doolittle: How your "working memory" makes sense of the world
Breaking down how people think is very interesting. It pulls at everyone's interest. Everyone's thought process is different and I'm glad that he acknowledges that rather than assuming everyone is the same. I can relate to the video more than most. At my job, I am a manager. I have to juggle a ridiculous amount of information every single day. Keeping this in line with school is difficult, but if i talk to someone about the tasks that I have to do and devise a plan on how to finish them, I am more likely to remember what I need to do before the week is up.

I thought this guy was a pretty good speaker. I enjoy learning the psychology behind things, and I was pleased that I was able to remember the five words he said before asking the three questions. I've found success in the past with some of the tips he gave here, such as associating certain things in your head with an image. I liked his final statement too: If we're not processing life, we're not living it.
Very interesting concepts on how the brain works. With me being a marketing major, I think learning how peoples brains work is very important. Also he relied the information with a funny spin to it. Have high levels of working memory and working memory capacity can make for better people all together. Ted brings up a lot of important facts and I also like that he was interacting with the audience.

I like learning about learning memory. It is so fascinating to understand the human brain. Doolittle was a good speaker also. I can't use this information directly in my job but it has an impact on how I think and what I learn from my clients.

The content of this video was good but I did not like the way in which the speaker presented it. He said the same thing over again for the first half of his speech. I do believe that it is useful to not just have working memory because it can definitely be problematic.
This was a very interesting video. I love learning about how others perceive the world, and think in their own way. Psychology has always been a subject that interested me, and memory is such an amazing concept to think about. In term of the presentation, this speakers was great. By engaging the audience in his presentation, he kept their attention and related to them.
This was an interesting video, that provided detail information on how to use your working memory. I found it informative and will attempt to use the steps discussed in order to remember my daily activities using my working memory.

The concepts presented in this video are relatively new to me. One concept that stood out amongst the rest was "working memory". I never even knew that people had a working memory capacity. I was aware that people could recall on certain information better than others. The exercise of the "5 words" in the video made me think and participate while watching. I would certainly share this with friends and employees.
The reasoning behind why we as humans do a lot of things is always interesting to figure out. "What we process, we need to learn." I think that is a useful statement especially when in business because i feel like sometimes innovation in business depends on the innovators mindset at the time. If they were willing to process something and learn it quickly then the outcome is certainly some form of innovation.
