Resource summary

19. Short term memory is limited.
  1. Have you ever tried to remember someone's phone number they just told you without writing it down?
    1. Then someone else starts talking to you.
      1. ...and talking
        1. ...and talking.
          1. You forgot it didn't you?
            1. That's because it was in your working memory, and in order to maintain the information you have to focus on it.
              1. Distractions keep people from remembering things short term. Maybe it's not someone else talking, maybe it's trying to remember numbers and letters on one page then entering them on another.
                1. If you want people to do something specific, don't have them do anything else until they complete the first task. Working memory can only hold so much.
