How to remember people's names and faces 5

Association with other people of the same name
This method is based on the mental placement of a person into a group of people with the same names. It’s as if you are forming squads of people. After applying this method, you just have to remember which squad your new acquaintance is in, and you can easily recall his name.

Well done, Oleks.

Association with other people of with the same (or similar) name

This method (technique) is based on the mental placement of (mentally placing) a person into a group of people with the same names. It’s as if you are forming squads (categories) of people. After applying this method, you just have to remember which squad your new acquaintance is in, and you can easily recall his (their) name.

Hi Oleks,

This sounds like an interesting technique! For example, the name "Jack" is quite common in England and I know many people who are called "Jack"

Would you perhaps advise me to refer to them as "Jack1, Jack2, Jack3" etc? I think that assigning a (perhaps a memorable) number to each person could potentially help. What do you think?

Some suggestions

1. Association / Associating a person with others who have the same name (my suggestion)

2. as  if you are forming squads of people.  - as  if you are forming categories (I agree with Aliakbar here - the word "squads" sounds a bit strange in this context) of people.

Hi Ed! Thank you! You suggested a good idea! I think numbering will greatly enhance this method. I have not met this option yet; you can safely patent your idea, and call it by your name.

hahaha, I'm sure I'm not the first person to think of this. I'm sure that it would be quite effective though.

Just one thing - you said, "I have not met this option yet" - In English, we only tend to use the verb "meet" when it comes to "meeting people". I would instead say "I have not come across this option yet", if that makes sense?

I agree as well that categories (a class or division of people or things regarded as having particular shared characteristics) of people in more fitting for this scenario.

Also for the word, squad (skwaad), practice pronounciation on this one too.
