We have five physical senses and a mysterious 6th sense that can also be utilized for learning.
Your sense of sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste are critical when it comes to improving your methods of learning. Each sensory cue within itself can dramatically enhance your learning experience, and provide you with extra support that will improve your memory and recall of information.
Science has shown us time and again that we never actually forget anything that comes through our five sensory organs. These memories are intrinsically ingrained into our psyche at a deep unconscious level. In fact, this is why under hypnosis many people find that sensory memories lying dormant for decades suddenly come to the forefront as through they just occurred yesterday. These types of memories are often very vivid because they are being experienced in multi-sensory ways, meaning that the person with the memory can see, hear, feel, taste and smell the experience from a wide variety of perspectives. And within this lies the key to your success as an accelerated learner.
For the purpose of this discussion, we will take a look at the three most utilized senses that will help to improve your study skills. However, please keep in mind that you will naturally have a preference for one sensory learning method over the others. Identify which one it is and approach your learning by focusing on this sensory organ to begin with. Only once you have a good understanding and grasp of the topic area should you vary up your approach and begin focusing on alternate methods that incorporate the other two primary sensory organs.
