I’m absolutely horrible at recalling a person’s name, even if I just heard it a couple of seconds ago.
I find using one or more of the following 8 tips on remember people’s names helps immensely.
I can remember numbers without any difficulty at all, but unfortunately, I don’t often meet people who are named after numbers!
8. Obtain a Business Card or Other Item with the Person’s Name on It
Not everyone carries around a business card or personalized stationary with their name on it.
If I encounter a person whom I wish to keep in mind for business purposes, then I always get a personal business card or have the person write his/her name down on the back of a company business card.
This gives me something to remember this helpful person’s name by, as well as a card to put on file when I get home.
