Intelligence Intensification/Memory Techniques/A Longer Peglist

While rhyming peglists are simple to learn, they become ambiguous rather quickly as 11 rhymes with 7, 21 rhymes with 31 rhymes with 41, etc. The major system gives you a non-ambiguous way to generate as many pegs as you need.

  • If you have not done so already study the number section these pegwords will not make sense without doing so.
  • If you find any of these pegs difficult to remember, make up one of your own.
  • Do not expect to learn the entire list at once. Start with 10 or so. When you can memorize a list of 10 objects with them, learn 10 more and memorize a list of 20 items. Then learn 10 more and so on.
  • Once you have mastered 52 pegwords see the section on cards.
