- Long Term or Permanent Memory : Represents the memories of your past like events of your childhood ,your first day in college,your first job experience,your career growth etc.
- Short Term or Temporary Memory : Represents the memories that belong to your daily routine like Names, faces,telephone numbers etc. Temporary memory gets converted into Permanent memory with the passage of time however weak brain remains unable to convert the temporary memory into Permanent memory

Remember Things Through Reference
Our brain is a complex invention of our creator, A very good mental exercise to enhance the memory is to ‘Remember the things through their reference‘.
for example, if someone asks you to write down the name of any flower which has red color, most of the people will mention only 1 name which is “Rose”, because their brain would also have created a reference between red color and a flower having red color.
Second Example , it is very difficult to remember the name of other people, if you map the physical appearance of this person with his name then you will never forget his name. Suppose Mr. X wears the dirty dress on daily basis,when ever you will meet any other person with dirty dress your brain will remind you the name of Mr.X.

+92 = Country code
333 = mobile phone service provider
308 569 5 = is number of your colleague (Mr. X)
Now whenever your heart will demand you to call your old buddy Mr. X, you will have to just re-assemble the above mentioned Chunks. Following is the sample snapshot of Chunking technique.
