Notes

  • It shows that more information is retained in your long-term memory by multiple spaced-out study sessions.

  • It was first identified by the German psychologist Hermann Ebbinghaus in 1885.

    • He says that even when we've forgotten some information, a certain quantity is stored in your subconscious mind. They cannot be consciously retrieved, but they make the process of relearning more effective.
  • To activate this effect, you have to revise concepts of any subject you're studying in spaced-out study sessions.

    • Flashcards are commonly used.
  • It can be used to learn anything of any field.

'The first goal is to improve my learning habit. It'd be amazing when I cultivate the habit of studying a topic per week, close it, share with other people, and start to read a new different topic. I hope I receive many feedbacks because it can improve the issues I investigate, and on top of that, I can meet amazing people.'
