Memorization using mental imaging, or image-naming: creating relationships between the name and
characteristics of a person
Simply invent any relationship between the name and the physical characteristics of the person.
For example, if you had to remember someone you met with the
name Shirley, you might keep the name in memory by noticing
that she has (or has not!) "curly" (rhymes with Shirley) hair.
