Quiz WriterJake

Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.

Can you improve long-term memory?

We forget more than half our experiences after just one hour. In the 19th century, the German psychologist Hermann Ebbinghaus discovered that regular revision of information helps us to store it long-term. He also found that the best time to revise information we want to remember is just as we're about to forget it. Increasing the time between each revision also helped. So, we should revise information after a few seconds, then a few minutes, then a few hours, then a few days, and so on. Another way of improving long-term memory is to have someone regularly test you on the information you want to remember. Being forced to retrieve that memory time and again is a very good way to keep the knowledge fresh.
