Power of Writing on your Palm

I write this post to make a very simple point. Have you ever been offended when a person writes something you told them on their palm? Well, from personal experience, I think you should not.

When someone makes a note in their phones, notebooks etc, the number of times they are going to see it is determined by when their brain tells them to do so. But on the other hand, without any conscious effort, one sees their palm many times especially when they wash their hand. Now when there is nothing written on the palm, one doesn't make an effort to recollect as "having seen" their palm, but if something is written on the palm, one makes an effort to read it and recollect the moment they wrote it. This may happen a few times, and each time they read it, they review the note and thus memorizing it eventually and effortlessly. Considering that are brain has a huge storing capacity, it is possible that even if they forget it in the short term, the memory will pop up at some point.

Next time, make sure you make someone write that important point on their palm ;-)

Thank you for taking time to read the post!
