Unfortunately, this is often overlooked! And then there is the customer in front of you, but the name is still not there. If the embarrassment is accepted and asked again for the name, comes the "Aha!". The picture is back ... So everything was in vain? Of course not.
But the pictures for the names are only useful if you are also linked to the people. But you also have to convert them into a picture. "And how is that supposed to work now?" You are right to ask.
In any case, it does not go like with the camera: Even if we look at someone concentrated, no exact image is burning in our brain. The visual impression is fleeting and quickly forgotten when we look elsewhere.
What is he doing?
The trick: you have to be the person imagineHow you do something in your imagination that you are not really doing right now. As a result, you automatically remember the overall impression of the person, and in turn use your imagination and your imagination.
And what do you let the person do? Of course something with the image of the name. In your opinion, therefore, let Mr. Bauer deal with a field on a tractor. Woman tree climbing a tree. To fill a bucket with Mr. Eimertz, and to bring Aydin an egg, like a servant (Ei-dia for Aydin).
Is not that rude?
Occasionally I am asked if this is not rude. I think: Quite the contrary! They know that the name described ancestor before generations ago, but has nothing to do with its present bearer.
They know that your image is made up and only serves to remember the name. And if you know the name at the next meeting, your goal will be reached. If you also smile automatically because of the funny picture, so much the better!
