Bah.

How did you do?
100%.

How many letters from each trial did you remember?
All.

Is there a "pattern" to the letters that you remembered?
How much more patterned can you get then "all"??

Graph your results for each set of numbers. One way to do this is to graph the number of letters you remembered as a percentage. For example, if you remembered 2 of the 4 letters presented in the second trial, then you have remembered 50% of the letters.
Code:
100%|  x  x  x  x  x  x
50% |
0%  |__________________
Trial: 1  2  3  4  5  6

I got all of the first 5, but only remembered 7 of 12 in the 6th one. In the first 5, there was a good mix of vowels and consonents so I could remember them as nonsense words. Not so for the last one.

I got all of them, but had almost the same issue you did with the last one.

Children of any age are the primary cause of most age-related dementias and all poverty in middle class adults. :smile: So, you got kids, eh?

I don't know how much important the order of the letters is. For the 5th, I wrote down UR in the place of RP, and for the last I changed the order of 3 letters (which were in consecutive locations).
