很多人都有記不住名字的困擾,尤其初次面對陌生人,要過很久才能將名字跟姓名聯想在一起。

不過最新的國外研究發現,其實記不住名字不是你的錯,而是生來本能所致。一起跟著TutorABC學一學吧:

 

There is a very simple reason why it’s so easy for the names of new acquaintances to slip right out of your head within moments of being introduced: names are kind of meaningless. 為什麼剛認識的人的名字我們會記不住?原因很簡單: 人名沒什麼意義。

Memory experts say that the more pathways back to a memory you have, the easier it becomes to retrieve that memory, and this just doesn’t happen naturally with names.

記憶專家表示:記憶點越多的事情就越容易記起來,但人名常是另外一回事了。

 

For example, even details as seemingly minor as what you were wearing on a particular day or what the weather happened to be doing can make it easier to recall other events that occurred that day, like the particulars of a conversation you had with a friend. But names, on the other hand, usually don’t give your brain much information to grasp onto beyond the name itself.  

舉例來說,只要你知道某天穿了什麼衣服,或是那天天氣怎樣這些看似不重要的事,就較能回想起其他當天發生的事情,比如說你跟朋友聊天的內容。然而人腦通常會覺得人名就只是人名而已,沒有其他的訊息可供利用。

 

看這篇文章,你可以跟TutorABC一起學到這些單字喔:  

acquaintance (n.) 認識的人(通常指”不是太熟”的朋友)  

meaningless (adj.) 沒有意義的

expert (n.) 專家
