Yesterday we talked about the different methods someone can use when trying to remember names. Today we will cover this topic in more detail.
Look at the person's face. Most of us can recall faces better than names. Associate the name with the face.
Use a personal connection. If you can associate their name along with what's personal to you, you are more likely able to recall the name. For instance saying to yourself, "Logan, he has green eyes like my brother Michael."
Avoid saying, "I can't or don't remember your name." Instead make it a practice to say, "Please tell me your name again." This communicates you value the other person and you really do care who they are.
