How to remember someone’s name

by dwaymire on February 6, 2010

Have you ever wondered the best technique to remember someone’s name? This is a problem that I long struggled with. Here’s a few tips that have helped me remember people’s names.

  1. When introduced, repeat the person’s name.
  2. Repeat the person’s name as often as possible while in conversation with them.
  3. If you forget their name, do not be afraid to ask their name again. They might have forgotten your name just too!
  4. Ask for a business card. What could be better than to have their name written right in front of you?
  5. Associate their name with something. You could associate their name with a place or thing that sound like their name, or with someone else you know who has the same name.
