Techniques exist for converting abstract information to images. These techniques include:
- Associating a visual symbol that has a similar meaning or that can cue the idea we are trying to remember. For example, the word 'learn' can be associated with an image of a student in school.
- Substituting a word or words that are similar in sound or meaning which are easier to visualize. For example the word 'fulcrum' could be represented by the images of a glass 'full' of 'crumbs'.
- Techniques to form visual images for numbers are a bit more sophisticated. Such techniques are described in detail for the peg system as well as the phonetic mnemonic system.
Using your own images can be better than using images suggested by another. This is because you likely have your own unique image that is associated with abstract ideas which are more appropriate for you than images suggested by someone else.
