When you hear a name, you should do the following:
- use it immediately, like hello Jason
- Associate a moving image to the name and put it on the person. For me, Jason is the killer in Friday the 13th. For example, I will imagine all Jasons with a hokey mark, a knife and a desire to kill me.
- use the name multiple times during the conversation
- use the name at the end. Like bye Jason
Now when I look around a room, all the Jason’s have a mask, and I remember the name.
NB: you can also use other emotion, like fun.
