So you've chosen dozens of new mental models to boost your decision making, thinking and impact... but what's the point if you can't remember them?
Don't worry, we've got you covered. And, just to prove it, I'll explain how with the help of two, connected, mental models. Now your choice — keep reading or dive into a quick 'show and tell' of how this works in the video below.
Whether you watched the video or not, let's jump into the first mental model which is one of the most evidence-based memory hacks available. It's actually cheating slightly because it combines two evidence-based strategies that have been demonstrated time and time again to make a huge impact.
Let me introduce...
And that brings us to ModelThinkers.
Like many other learning, language or educational apps, we've chosen to use a Leitner inspired algorithm in our Learn function. in the menu bar at the top of this page.
Here's how it works.
- Poke around the site and save any model you want to use to your personal latticework of mental models by selecting the 'bookmark' icon in the top right corner of each model page.
- You can view these saved models via the Your latticework option in the menu, and they are also saved models are automatically entered into your 'Learn' function.
- Go to the Learn page and click the 'Start the Quiz' button. You'll immediately be tested on up to 12 of your saved mental models. You self assess, clicking on the 'not yet' 'almost' or 'got it' categories based on how confident you are with the answers.
- We apply a Leitner system inspired approach to focus your future quizzes on models you know the least.
Of course, it can't work without you, so for best effect use the reminder function to schedule regulare quiz times - that's putting the 'spaced' back into 'spaced retrieval'.
That's it — it's simple. If you're a member you can start saving models to your latticework and start your regular quizzes right now.
Not a member? Well, for about the price of a coffee each month, you can get started now.
