I loved this read. Well, I love any read that proves my own personal stories true. From the Tufts Ph.D.;
“Typically, people under stress are less effective at retrieving information from memory. We now show for the first time that the right learning strategy, in this case retrieval practice or taking practice tests, results in such strong memory representations that even under high levels of stress, subjects are still able to access their memories”
Makes complete sense, when you think about it. It’s the same reason why sporting teams will practice playing in loud environments, or cold, or in a scenario where they’re losing with minimal time left.
Folks, forget your index cards for memorization. Instead, test yourself so you’re prepared for the stresses of pressure.
