                            Latest research suggests that
                               it is the emotions aroused,
                             not the personal significance
                            of the event, that makes such
                              events easier to remember.

Edvard Munch – The scream
   Emotionally charged events are
    remembered better
   Pleasant emotions are usually remembered
    better than unpleasant ones
   Positive memories contain more contextual
    details (which in turn, helps memory)
   Strong emotion can impair memory for less
    emotional events and information
    experienced at the same time
   It's the emotional arousal, not the
    importance of the information, that helps
     know what they are after; they can tell
    others what it might look like once they
    have ‘it’
      Bounce back if they make a mistake and
    fall into a ‘hole’
   Solve their own problems; know what to do
    when they get stuck
   Share ideas with my partners
   get other peoples ideas into their head and
    help other people get ideas into their head
   Make others feel good about their success
   Give reasons for what they do and say
