Read the following text and aswer the questions in maximum 5 words.                        

 

Most of us have experienced it. You are introduced to someone, just to forget his or her name within seconds. You rack your brain trying to remember, but can’t seem to even come up with the first letter. It is not necessarily your brain’s ability that determines how well you can remember names, but rather your level of interest.

Some people who are more socially aware, more interested in people, would be more motivated to remember somebody’s name. Just because someone can’t remember names doesn’t mean they have a bad memory.

The key to a good memory is your level of interest. The more interest you show in a topic, the more likely you will remember its details. If it is a topic you enjoy, then it will not seem you are using your memory.

This also explains why some things seem so hard to remember. There are strategies for training your memory, including using a mnemonic device. Another strategy is to use the person’s name while you talk to them.
