Newsletter Secrets of Intelligence Development in Special Services Introduction

"SECRETS OF INTELLIGENCE DEVELOPMENT IN SPECIAL SERVICES"

Issue 1.

The idea of ​​mailing originated for two reasons. The first - to us in the Center of intellectual technologies the comrade who has bought the book of the head of the Center I.Polonejchika "How easy to study and pass examinations" has called. It turned out, the former scout. He praised the book, noted that much of what is given in it was used in training in a special school, which he was finishing. After this lyrical digression, he began to solicit an answer to the topic "Who, in fact, allowed this to be published, and even in plain language, and even with such a scholarly title of the book?".

What to do, a person stayed in the old time, he is so comfortable. And the "secrets" that we discovered in this book are clearly not the Kalugin surrender of tracking systems.

The second reason ... Remember the episode from the movie "Shield and Sword". Our scout Johann Weiss (of course, Stirlitz will be more abrupt, but nonetheless) cast one glance at the pages of secret lists, then gave a sign to show the next one. Then in the clinic our resident doctor remembered absolutely everything.

It became interesting - but how did he do everything? We decided to just make inquiries. Oleg Stepanov advised to read about this episode directly in the book of Vadim Kozhevnikov, on which the film was shot. Something cleared up Indeed, in the book Weiss memorized, then on the street in the kiosk he bought a newspaper and made some notes in it. Yeah, then, without mnemonics, that is, the art of remembering did not happen.

Perfectly. But this is hardly all. I had to turn to my friend, a KGB worker, who had graduated from some special educational institutions and who is now working in the field of struggle, I can assure you, with all sorts of evil and rubbish. He agreed to tell me something, but at the same time, considering that he is still in the service, do not advertise his participation in this project.

I must say that this is a wonderful man, a real officer, honest and principled. This is all I said without a trace of irony. Believe it or not, they are.

He agreed to help only after he was proved that this would contribute to the intellectual development of the people, the reduction of the number of underachieving students and schoolchildren, etc.

I myself am engaged in mnemonics, but in an interview with my friend (and we touched on a bunch of topics), purposely made some mistakes, like the confusion of the dates of historical events for our history, the number of the heads of our team, etc. (you can imagine what it was for the conversation !), and every time he cleaned me mechanically.

Then I told him about it, to which Volodya (the name was already declassified!) Laughed and said that he noticed this poorly-designed fantasy trick and decided to play along with me a little.

But then we talked about things that are more serious. Strictly speaking, we will now turn to the topic of mailing.

1.       NECESSARY QUALITIES

We will not quote all of Vladimir's stories verbatim, especially since transcripts and records of conversations were not kept. They relied on their memory. :)

Of course, we noted such important qualities as bravery, courage, patriotism, but did not focus on them. It was only about intellectual development, development of memory, foreign languages ​​and so on. And then, in a free statement, a retelling of what Volodya told us.

"... No doubt, people were selected to our system, and still, despite the fact that the work is special, it's still coming to us, too." The sons of bosses, party bosses. "But even among those who were selected, geniuses usually did not exist Of course, the abilities are above average, but not so much as to say that we were an intellectual elite. In general, ordinary guys, and physical conditions, an important factor, did not always coincide with memory, wit, ability to learn.

The whole thing was in the training system. The most powerful training technologies and ordinary forcing. Of course, from your mailing list (Volodia is somewhat distrustful of the Internet), the people will learn a lot of things, different systems, exercises.

But then ask them at some stage:

·          And who did it all? Who did all the exercises? Who has found the strength to overcome inertia, vanity, laziness and serious all this to do?

Frankly, if we were not forced to do everything, we would have cooled off in a month, lazy, would have put everything off for later. But you know, it's hard at first. Not physically. Then, when you get involved, when you see what it gives, how much you become smarter than yourself, you do not need to force anything. But you have to reach this stage.

To begin with, first of all, the development of memory. This, of course, mnemotechnics, that is, the technique of memorizing. Here you yourself are an expert, so I will not reveal anything new for you. But also memory in the sense of brain function, clear and precise work of the brain.

And this, above all, the ability to observe and observe, the ability to see, hear and feel, attention and concentration, and imagination.

Exercises, I'll give you, you can tell something, just this. You can achieve a state of constant concentration of attention. And do not think that this is some kind of tense state, all the time gloomy and puzzled, always looking for something, someone is hunted down and afraid to step a step.

Not at all, everything is simple and natural, only at the right moment you can remember everything that is necessary, almost nothing you forget, everything is stored in memory. And everything is done involuntarily and easily. But this ease needs to be achieved. Through classes. Nothing comes of it. No drugs, coding, zombies, hypnosis - bullshit!

A lot about the twenty-fifth frame was written. And in advertising they said that "so far only in the special services!". It probably works. Yes, just somewhere you will find, but you can lose a lot. In general, the subconscious mind is a subtle thing. Something with him you start to do, and everything seems to be right, according to theory, but someday it will shoot like that ...

So, like Zhvanetsky: "You comprehend everything with your mind, you reach the imagination".

In general, so. We take a pause. I will think over the system, what for what to do. So you will give. "

It seems to you that there is not enough information yet. But do not forget that this is the first conversation. Already, we were distracted by free themes.

So wait for the continuation. It will soon appear.

GOOD LUCK!

Newsletter Secrets of Intelligence Development in Special Services Release of the second

Hello!

We continue the publication with an officer of the Foreign Intelligence Service, who is now working, so to speak, on the domestic front. He will soon retire, but his memory, observation, concentration can only be envied. By the way, we agreed that when he leaves the service, then we will publish his name and surname.

Volodya often wanted to leave the service, the processes that are going on in the former USSR, he clearly does not like. I note that he never engaged in persecution of dissidents, intellectuals, the recruitment of informers and so on. He really served the Motherland. I do not want to idealize him, but I have the most respectful attitude to him.

Today we publish a second conversation, the topic of which is

"WHY ARE THE GREAT JOURNEYS?"

"You've probably heard that many great people kept diaries, of course, these are not girlish notes on" who likes and who does not. "Of course, they thought least of all about the fact that these diaries would someday be published and They did not think about the trail in history, they just did it, but the diaries did it properly, why? And what did they write there?

From the very title of "diary" it is clear that it was primarily about describing the events of life. Naturally, with observations, some assessments, emotions. And still the ultimate goal of creating diaries was generally incomprehensible. The diary is understandable, but the diary ... Only time to spend.

In fact, the diary is a perfect memory training. Simply excellent. For several reasons.

First, by itself, remembering events trains memory and observation.

Secondly, it is known that, first of all, facts that have an emotional coloring are remembered. If you just remember the numbers, then this is a rather boring occupation. But if you bring emotions into this business ... It is not by chance that there is even such a term-definition "the overactivation of memory through the recreation of emotions."

And now imagine that from time to time a person returns to the diary, rereads it. Immediately events come to life, facts emerge. And there is an active process of remembering.

Of course, the leading diaries were least of all thinking about training memory, everyone had some motivation for doing it. But here you can make keeping a diary by the method of purposeful memory training. And the effect of it is simply fantastic.

So, as we did in the School. We just kept diaries in the evening and handed them over to their superiors. It's not that they want to know our intimate or very personal secrets, it was just a statement of the work's performance. In the morning, we also had time to re-describe the day. And the diaries came back to us, and we just read them.

You know, if it's a try, then the effect is just amazing. In what is - I will not say. Those who will start to do this will understand.

Then they told us to describe not just the past day, but two days - "today and yesterday". Then another day was added. And when we reached the level of "three days", doing this with ease, we began to notice how much memory we had developed.

And now imagine what the effect turned out when we reached the level of "seven days"!

The sense of keeping the diary was simple - an ordinary discipline, the transition of the duty of keeping a diary into a habit.

But you can do all the same without a diary. Simply before a dream remember a day and give estimations to the actions. Answer the questions "What did I do and what did not?", "Where was I right and where not?" and so on. This is the same activation of memory through the re-creation of emotions.

And in the morning remember yesterday's day. And so gradually come to the level of "seven days". I will say right away that without this exercise, such a high level of memory development is almost impossible to achieve.

(Volodya from modesty did not say that such as his level).

You can not even keep a very detailed diary, just write down the events. And they will play the role of keys, allowing you to "pull out of memory" and details.

I hope that I convinced your subscribers to do diaries.

Thank you will say later, when they see how much memory has become stronger ... "

Intelligence and intelligence - 4

Newsletter Secrets of Intelligence Development in Special Services Fourth issue

Hello!

We continue the series of talks about the development of intelligence in the special services. More precisely, in the educational institutions of the Soviet KGB. We should note that they proved their professionalism during their existence, while the USSR was. We hope that the FSB has kept traditions and keeps the brand. But in Belarus they did not begin to rename and so they left the world-famous name - the KGB.

Today we will talk about the development of certain qualities that have been emphasized in the educational process at the KGB schools, including at the school in the city of N.

So, the word to Vladimir.

"... A professional can not be sloven and a hat." Roughly speaking, he should not "catch crows." And seriously, attention, concentration, observation. "By the way, I did not use the word" professional "to make myself more meaningful. I have said and will say more, it applies to any kind of activity, whether it is a job with us or in a store.

A person who has an attention who knows where, no concentration, I do not speak about observation, is doomed to life. That's often said about intuition. I do not argue, maybe there are some variants of foresight, but, in my opinion, intuition is the ability to anticipate events and results based on the information received. And the more information, the stronger the intuition.

And now digress for a few minutes. Think a few minutes about the phone, imagine it and think only of it.

(Do the same - close your eyes and do this exercise).

And after these very few minutes, answer yourself to the question: "What am I thinking now?".

(I must say that I thought quite of the other).

Attention has the property of dissipating, jumping from one to another. And if you do something, then you can keep it in place for about 15-20 minutes. And it is necessary that attention be active. This is what you need to train.

By the way, the example with the phone is quite a good exercise. Only you need to do it like this. Let's say, before going to sleep, start thinking about something. After a while, when you realize that attention has already gone far, try to make a return trip, that is, to return to the starting point of reflection. Very useful thing.

Another exercise. If there is a clock with an arrow, then look at the second hand for two minutes. Do not be distracted by anything. This is only at first glance easy, in fact to learn two minutes to see the second hand is quite difficult. But when this skill comes, I can say that the first step to becoming a "professional" is done.

How many people lose because of their carelessness! For example, a man has come to you, a psychologist is good, he offers you a job, convinces you and you forward, with songs. Then you bite your elbows. And if he was careful, he would even notice for himself that the tie does not seem to fit the shirt, there is a tasteless ring on his hand, fingers running or something else. That's where the intuition would be and say the word, and send a man away, and escaped trouble.

And so you paint the perspective, and instead of turning your attention to the full, you leave in this perspective. This is where you are caught.

Or communication with the tax or even with some such service. They are kind to you: "Pay taxes and sleep peacefully, dear comrade!", Will convince you that you need to pay some fine, which you do not really have to pay, and you leave with a feeling of gratitude to a good tax inspector. I would have included attention and noticed some details that would have said: "Stop, they're bred you!"

(I must say that Volodya touched for the living, I got caught a few times, paying some fines for petty crimes.) Then I found out that I could not do it, but I did not have the money!

So, attention should be included constantly. You can say that you must be constantly concentrated. And you need to do this without effort on yourself, efforts will not bring anything, sooner or later you'll get tired.

So here are some exercises and one piece of advice.

The first exercise . Draw the table 5 for 5 cells and write in it in random order the numbers from 1 to 25, or ask someone to make you such tables.

Exercise is very well known, but the benefits of it are enormous. You already understood that you need to look in order to find all the numbers from 1 to 25. It is normal if you spent about 45 seconds somewhere. Try to bring the result to 30 seconds. Master's standard.

It is advisable to exercise with these tables more often.

The second exercise . During a conversation on the phone, draw on the sheet of tic-tac-toe, that is, these figures one after another. And do not lose the thread of conversation. Make sure that the picture turned out beautiful, but did not creep in all directions. Then complicate the task - draw two crosses, then noel, and so on.

The third exercise . Standing in line or while driving in public transport, count from 100 to 1 in three. That is 100-97-94 and so on. I lost it - then start again. And so until the confidence comes. Then from 200 to 1. Then change the ratio of the account.

And advice . All this will not bring any profit, if there is no personal interest in this in everything, if you will treat exercises with boredom. Think, after all, the plot itself is somehow fascinating. The main thing is to have interest. If it does not exist, nothing will help ... "

Here we will take a break. Very small. This is more likely due to the fact that the letter in the mailing list should not be very large. But nothing, we will continue very soon.

Good luck!


5th issue 'Secrets of Intelligence Development in Special Services'

Newsletter Secrets of Intelligence Development in Special Services 5-th issue

Hello!

So it turned out that we had another release. There are several reasons.

First, an elementary lack of time - seminars were held, we do not allow hacks, conducted events with full responsibility and the result was satisfied listeners.

Secondly, the system, which we described and will describe further, is not a tablet. That is, there is no such drug to accept and everything is in order - the intellect has increased, memory has become much stronger, attention and concentration have reached unattainable heights. It should be dealt with and dealt with persistently and for a long time. Reward is the result, the development or the opening of its new level, which at one time seemed unattainable. But how often did vanity and elementary laziness prevent us from doing all this ...

And the thought crept in that no one would do it. And to write for nothing ... But then something happened that we all hoped for. A letter came from one of our readers, in which he told us about the successes he achieved by performing those simple tricks and exercises that we advised. Described in sufficient detail. True, he did not give permission to quote his letter in the newsletter. And without demand, we published harmless letters a couple of times and broke into a rebuff.

Nevertheless, this letter gave us some optimism, and we decided to continue the mailing. Even the usually skeptical Vladimir decided that it was not in vain that we started all this.

So, we will continue.

So, again about attention, concentration, observation and the ability to see, hear, feel. Here is another point. I conduct several mailings, created a correspondence course in the development of memory and intellect. It goes without saying that, one way or another, these mailings can cross each other. In addition, the basis for the course of interest on 80 lay the methods that were given and given in educational institutions, training specialists of special services.

It is clear that there are specific disciplines like "Psychology of interrogation", but, probably, in them one can learn something for our course.

And as soon as we learn something new - immediately in the mailing and in the course program. In my opinion, this is normal practice. But back to the topic of mailing. The word to Vladimir.

"... Today I'm discussing a little: in any case, the intensity of the initial impression is important, and it is she who determines the degree of memorization and is proportional to the attention with which they relate to the subject of observation, this, of course, is not an opening, but a well-known psychological law.

Attention is the most important mental habit, and each person has the opportunity to develop a certain degree of genius, developing the power of focused attention , capable of unlimited growth with continuous exercise.

For those who have not learned to focus their attention on at least one subject, acquiring new skills will seem difficult and tedious.

But the task is facilitated by the exercises, and in time you will be able to reach such a state that attention will be focused automatically and without effort.

All desirable qualities, which are generally discussed, can be so developed by exercises and constant practice that they will unconsciously manifest themselves, if necessary. If you really need focused attention, it will be necessary for you.

The same can be said about mental analysis. Acquire only the habit, and your mind will follow it. If only to build a path, and the mind will already go along it. And the secret in achieving such development is exercise, exercise, exercise and gradual improvement.

So, without a certain degree of attention, we will not retain a lasting and intense impression.

On this basis, we can say that it is not enough that an object or person makes an impression with the participation of the sense organs on the brain, but in order to memorize something, attention and consciousness are necessary at the time of obtaining the first impression.

To clarify the difference between conscious attention and the usual reception of impressions through the senses, let us imagine ourselves in one of the crowded streets of a large city.

Thousands of objects appear before our eyes, thousands of sounds are perceived by our ear, Smell, touch ... All senses work.

Among such chaos of visual impressions, sounds, smells, we are most often occupied with one particular event, one sound, one thought, and everything else around us, as it were, does not exist.

And all that we will remember later will be precisely that object or fact that we looked at, or the sound that we listened to, or that particular thought that did not bother us at that moment.

Most of the visible, audible, felt by us is almost immediately forgotten, because we treat it with very little attention.

It is said that weak memory is a weak focus, and that the habit of superficially observing and is the source of many troubles, including bad memory.

So now let's get down to business seriously ... "

We will stop until the next time. I hope that now you will wait not so long. Moreover, Volodya suggested this move - do not try to cover everything at once, but concentrate on something, bring it to its logical conclusion, and only then go on.

Good luck!

Newsletter Secrets of Intelligence Development in Special Services Congratulations and the continuation of the conversation.

Hello!

Christmas and New Year are approaching. We congratulate everyone on these holidays! Please accept our best wishes!

Maybe there is a minute and look in the mailbox, and read the incoming letters. Here is the release of our newsletter.

We continue publishing interviews with Volodya, a former foreign intelligence specialist, now an employee of the internal front, so to speak. Do not consider something unseemly for something, but one day, at the request of Volodya, I had to play, for example, criminal elements, a buyer of one type of product.

Someone is ashamed of cooperation with security services. You can understand, if it was a question of knocking on friends. But if you help catch the idiots who make money on our lives ... In general, I'm proud of that episode. The essence of the matter while I will not tell. It's not about secrecy. I do not want, that the co-author of these lectures "deciphered".

Now I wrote, many, reading, pomorschatsya ... Dissidents suffered, dissent was persecuted, but you satrap praises. Ask now the former dissidents - many of the KGB will respond with respect, they will tell you that now it's much easier to get into trouble

Never did the KGB guys suggest that I commit meanness. By the way, I had a friend - the legendary musician Mike Naumenko (group "Zoo"). So he told me that when the CPSU Oblast Committee instructed the St. Petersburg KGB to deal with rock musicians, they invited Mike, apparently because of intelligence and rare charm, had fun in the walls of the office for several hours, after which a "cart" explanatory work, put on a kind ... ". And the musicians continued to create.

The guys, the police, all kinds of new services there - the offices are corrupt and I despise them. But not the KGB. Serious office, solid guys.

But to the point. I once asked Volodya, "But how did they check the memory on the fittings?". Well, the conversation went on.

"... You know, of course, they did not accept a bad memory from the beginning." They were given an A4 sheet with a text about this kind of content: "At 17-15, Petrov should ride tram number seven to the school stop, pass three quarters, There was nothing particularly complicated about it, the usual, in general, story on the page.

Many of us went there for, so to speak, romantic reasons, well, they gave us such stories. In accordance with our moods. By the way, it helped with memorization.

I did not study memorizing techniques specifically. But I can definitely say - if you do not just read, but read with interest, imagine the action vividly, then remembering the difficulties will not happen.

By the way, if you want, I'll sketch out an example of such a story, let your readers try their hand at the next meeting. It will be a story and a series of questions to it. Simulate the exam.

But we will continue what we spoke about last time. By the way, in general now everything will go not separately, from case to case, but consistently, so that the thread somehow was.

So, a weak memory is nothing but a little attention, and that superficial observation is the enemy of remembering.

But can a person at the same time focus their attention on several subjects?

In our department of psychology, it was believed that the human mind can only do one thing at a time, but it can move from one subject to another so quickly that it becomes as if attention is divided between two or more objects.

Some people in the business are capable of doing three or four things at the same time, but most likely they just developed the ability to move from one subject to another with great speed.

Only people who know how to focus their attention can do this - throw the object and immediately devote all their attention to another.

Memory follows attention, and things are memorized better, sensations from which are obtained when the mind is at rest and is not occupied by any stranger.

The developed attention gives very clear impressions, sensations, images, strengthens human abilities and gives them great strength.

People of great intellect are distinguished by developed attention, while idiots are deprived of such quality as attention.

Consequently, the memory of great people is full of intense intense impressions, images, which they achieve by intensive mental work. A person with inadequate attention receives much less information, and all the time he feels an urgent need for it ... "

We will not bother you too much before and during the holidays, we will continue right after the New Year.

Maybe you think that we devote too much time to the story about the need to develop attention, but there are reasons:

·          Very often a person wants to remember everything at once, to learn some methods of remembering. But they are ineffective without developed attention.

·          Many people think that they have developed enough attention, and this issue can be skipped. This is a profound error.

·          Finally, we want to stimulate the beginning of your work on improving attention and concentration. Sometimes it seems tedious and boring. Give these exercises a meaning for yourself, try to come up with some kind of game, a role, after all, that the development of attention classes become a pleasant and urgent need.

And now, let me bow out and congratulate you on the holidays!

WORLD YOUR HOME!


Secrets of intelligence development in special services. Issue. 7th

Newsletter Secrets of Intelligence Development in Special Services Issue 7. The beginning of a complex of exercises to develop observation and visual memory.

Hello!

We continue our mailing list. After a certain swing, we Vladimir entered the rhythm and now the material really will go consistently, and not "jumping" from the fifth to the dozen.

I recently received a letter, the author of which wrote that in vain I in some sense idealized the KGB, that during the years of stagnation they broke many fates, including people's letters close to the author. The letter was written sincerely and with pain.

What can I say? But only that, apparently, I was just lucky and I managed even during the years of stagnation to get acquainted with decent KGB people, who, incidentally, are still friends, despite my dissident past.

Secondly, they never offered me to deal with denunciation. Only once was asked to pretend to be a buyer of one substance, which some criminals were trying to sell. Proceeding from the general human morality (what they tried to sell, in no way did not fit), I agreed. In addition, we were united and united by a common hatred for this very criminals. I do not know how where, but in Belarus, in my opinion, only the KGB and fighting with them on the present, without entering into alliances and not engaged in "cover-up" bandits.

In the third, scoundrels were lacking and outside the walls of the KGB. Alas, one of the biggest podlyanki I threw one of my former student, who, incidentally, he liked to yell "off!" On all corners.

But back to the topic. Let's continue the story of Vladimir.

"... First of all, people perceive information visually, of course, there are people for whom the main channel of perception is auditory or kinesthetic, but the world is designed in such a way that the first impression is first given by the image.

Therefore, we will begin to develop for the beginning just visual memory and attention.

I already talked about this, gave exercises. But now everything will go consistently, without jumps. By the way, you can get yourself a small notebook, where you simply list all these exercises, you will look into it and just do the exercises at every opportunity. There will be 8 in all, today I will bring the first three.

Exercise 1 This is one of the simplest, but the most effective exercises for the development of observation. The essence of it - in the ability to "see" the most common things. Maybe this will seem easy at first, but try it, and you will see that this is not quite so.

Put in front of you some very ordinary thing, better than a bright color, because for the beginning, this will make the exercise easier. Let it be a magazine, an orange or a CD. Look calmly at the subject for a while, but very carefully, trying to capture it in your memory.

Then close your eyes and try to remember this subject with the utmost precision. Try to remember its size, all the details and capture it all in your brain. Then open your eyes, look again at the subject and see how different it is from the image you created.

Carefully mark the missed details, then close your eyes again and try to improve the image; Then again look at the subject and continue until you can create a completely clear visual image of the subject with all the details.

A fairly small practice will give you an excellent skill and will prepare for further work and improvement.

Exercise 2 After mastering the first exercise, take one of the items you learned and, after obtaining an accurate mental image, try to draw its shape and details.

We understand that you are not an artist. And I will not try to make it out of you, but I just want to develop your observation and the ability to remember what you saw. For the first time, ask yourself something simpler, and you will not be disappointed. The quality of your drawings will depend not on artistic talent, but on the details that you remember and could put on paper.

And do not think about the quality of the drawings, about what is not very similar, that you do not know how to draw. The main thing in this exercise is just its execution. So what if you draw a raskoryaku any?

Exercise will provide invaluable skills. These two exercises develop observation and the ability to remember to such a great extent that in a short time you will be able to just look at something only once, and then draw a sketch with all the major details.

Of course, you should not serve as a model, not the object itself, but its image in your memory. Noticing all the details of the subject, look at it again and see if you have forgotten anything. In general, act as in the first exercise.

In both exercises, change items frequently, because this is a good training and skill acquisition.

But I would like to know how often you can do these exercises, especially the second one.

Exercise 3 Begin by looking at the details, not from remembering the general appearance of the object. Do not try to "perceive" the whole thing at first sight.

This is a matter of further exercises as you achieve some results in development. Perceive individual details of the subject, imprint them in your memory, then proceed to the following details, etc.

For example, take someone else's face. There is nothing more annoying, for example, how to forget the faces of the people we meet. We owe this only to a lack of observation in this matter.

The mistake of many of us is that we tried to remember the face as a whole, and not in detail. Start practicing with your friends, then go on to strangers, and soon you will be surprised at the ease with which you remember details in the appearance of people.

Carefully consider the nose, eyes, mouth, chin, hair color, overall shape of the head, etc. You will see that it will be easy for you to remember the nose of one, the eyes of the other, the chin of the third, etc.

Before proceeding to this, sit quietly and try to describe the appearance of one of your closest acquaintances. You yourself will be surprised at how vague the "image" that you "caused" is really.

Admit to yourself that you have never really looked at them in detail at all. If so, how can you hope to remember strangers? Begin by considering each oncoming and with careful study of appearance, and then take a pencil and try to describe the appearance in words.

This exercise is actually very interesting, and from the first attempts you will notice rapid progress.

The same useful exercise is the detailed viewing of buildings. First, try to describe a building that you walk by every day. You will be able to form some concept of its general form, form, color, etc.

But as for the number of windows, the type and size of the doors, the shape of the roof, the cornices, the ornaments, etc., you will see that you can not see it clearly. You will even feel that you have never really really seen a house.

You just looked at him. Start, looking closely at the building on your way, to reproduce later its thoughts in detail and see if you remember a lot.

The next day, take up this building and consider the new details (and there will be a lot of them), continue until you have a clear idea of ​​this building.

This is a very valuable method of developing observation. It is only necessary to start, to feel the first successes, how this occupation will seem very necessary and fascinating to you.

But you have to overcome laziness and start doing exercises. "

Do not overload you right away, the other five exercises are in the next release.

Good luck everyone!


Secrets of intelligence development in special services. Issue. 8

Newsletter Secrets of Intelligence Development in Special Services Eighth issue. Review of the mail and the continuation of the complex of exercises for the development of visual memory and observation.

Hello!

Today we will begin by reviewing some of the letters that have been received.

1.       We are pleased that many began to perform the exercises, which are given in previous releases of the mailing. However, it is true, for example, that an exercise to capture an object in visual memory does not immediately turn out. That is, after you close your eyes, you can not get a clear picture, everything turns out vague.

We answer - it's okay, after some practice the clarity of the image will come. It is important only not to stop and continue to perform the exercise. But when you get a positive result, it will give you new strength, besides, you will see how much you will become better remembered, how much you will become more attentive and more concentrated. And, as a result, success in work, study, career.

2.       Many began to keep a diary. Let's not dwell on the essence of the questions, just note some points that may be useful for everyone.

First, mandatory remembering in the morning. And it does not matter how you do it - with the help of a diary or not. It is important to do. And it happens that in the evening everyone will write down the diary, and in the morning remember the lack of time, the routine zaela. In this case, you do not develop memory, but simply keep a diary.

Secondly, it is important not only to memorize the events and then reproduce them, but first of all answer the questions "What did I do good?" What is unhappy? What am I sorry for? What am I proud of? " etc. It is important to fix not a fact, say, buying a coupon in a kiosk, but fixing emotions . And it's not necessary to spend half the day remembering everything in a row.

Thirdly, to increase the number of days to move when you confidently "pass" the "previous level.

3.       Our reader Svetlana Khodakova sent such a letter:

At one time, on one of the central channels, the "One-On-One" TV show was broadcasted to the majority of TV viewers, which was remembered by the release in which V.Zhirinovsky launched Takan into B.Nemtsov.

In general, the style and purpose of the transfer are understandable - to give the viewer to observe how people can communicate, to put it mildly, on different sides of the barricades.

And so, one of the programs included a counterintelligence officer and an external intelligence officer. You know, I watched this issue with great pleasure.

Firstly, the conversation was in the style of "I disagree with you" - then - a clear argument - why. The interlocutor (to call his opponent the language would not turn), listening carefully, or saying "perhaps you are right", or leads counterarguments. In short, a calm conversation of two Professionals.

Poor leader periodically tried to wedge in with his "Can you shake hands?" (Officers quickly shook hands and continued to communicate) and even some kind of duty phrases, but looked clearly superfluous: apparently the invitees were people of a different format - they could not do a show of their communication.

I can add that in this broadcast I did not see anything like this: neither politicians nor businessmen, unfortunately, behave this way.

Let's make a small comment. This style of behavior and communication speaks specifically about Professionalism. We do not have professional politicians yet, as long as all this is more than some sort of clan disassembly and hangouts, cunning, lies, arrogance, etc. (Suffice it to recall the tricks of an unforgettable WWII or Hakamada throwing ashtrays when she was offered not to fly in a business class, but with ordinary passengers).

We just have normal businessmen, not oligarchs, who, due to ties, etc., caught the moment and made capital.

And this, I must say, is a normal phenomenon, a growing disease. Alas, this stage can not be avoided.

But in the country there are Professionals. This will save her.

Professionalism gives rise to self-confidence and respect for the opponent. By the way, what is left for us? Become Professionals. I do not think that this newsletter is read by Berezovsky or Abramovich. Read ordinary people. As, however, and lead it.

Well, we admit, it does not shine to become oligarchs, it does not shine to break into politics. We, in general, are decent people. What is left for us? Become Professionals. And not only in the sense of occupation. Professionals in life. And this can help, among other things, these exercises, which are and will be discussed in the mailing list.

Probably, something I let in fog and reasoning, with which you may disagree. The last thing you want is for you to think that I want to take on the role of such a guru.

It's just these thoughts that gave birth to Svetlana's letter, for which she is thankful. Because this letter is also a great motive for practicing, for overcoming your own laziness. By the way, if this retreat seemed to someone superfluous, criticize, there will be no offense, but something good will bring somewhere.

By the way, Vladimir in principle expressed almost the same thing in the vein that politicians come and go, the elections are held, and professionals are always needed.

But we will continue our studies. Today we will give two more exercises. You could have all the five remaining, but the letter will be long. The word to Vladimir.

"... We made this exercise ( exercise 4 - the lead author's note ) at the school ourselves ... Well, how did you come up with it ... Probably someone suggested it, however, it does not matter at all. Now you can buy dice at every corner. to 6. Acquire a few pieces.Take an opaque glass, throw them there, shake and drop the glass on the table, open the bones for a short time and count the glasses.

Start with two bones, gradually bring up to five. And try to reduce the counting time. The memory chain is developing unusually.

And if there is also a partner for this case ... Then you can take a deck of cards and show each other cards. For a moment, show, and the partner should name the card. And the speed of the show all the time increase. Until a quick, so to speak, look. Only in any case not to force events and not try to immediately show the phenomenal speed. It will come if you do everything smoothly and gradually.

Just do not think that this is all children's fun. Fun is fun, but the result is "adult".

Exercise 5. There is a lot of talk about speed reading. Maybe this is the place to be. I do not know, we were not taught this. At least, in this form, as they are now written in books and textbooks on speed reading. (I read Volodia's book on speed reading for a review, he did not begin to smash and criticize it, he simply noted that they did not have it.) But one circumstance - he scanned it and, in general, caught the main essence of what was written) .

But I read fast enough. I do not even read it, but I keep track of the information. It's just a matter of practice. For example, we trained on newspapers.

Start simply by reading a few words at a glance, then whole phrases, fragments, etc. With the development of such abilities it is necessary simply to act, as they do when developing, say, muscles - first we develop one muscle, then we reach consecutively to the whole muscular group.

Again, the transitions should be smooth, do not immediately start to see the paragraphs with the eyes. Take the newspaper and start. This is not a textbook, no responsibility, so the consciousness will not be trapped by the fear of error.

The more good newspapers are, the fact is that they are often printed with such narrow columns. It is very convenient to train on them.

It is clear that America has not opened. But many things really turn out to be simple. Simple, but not primitive. And in general, simplicity, not past the stage of complexity, is primitive. Honestly, I did not invent. I read it from one writer. ( It's strange, I thought again that he did not remember the author of the phrase.) It all turned out to be simple - this writer simply can not stand this writer for some views ).

Training, training, training. And, as a consequence, the Result ... "

We will continue in a few days. I do not know where, but I have a firm conviction that the release of the newsletter should be no more than two pages in A4 format. Otherwise, they will not read. And as you absorb information and you do not get tired. Again, maybe I'm wrong.

By the way, I reminded Volodya of the promise to bring a "training story". We agreed that when we finish with visual memory, we will immediately give the story.

Good luck everyone!


Secrets of intelligence development in special services. Issue. 9

Newsletter Secrets of Intelligence Development in Special Services Issue 9. The end of the description of the cycle of exercises on the development of visual memory and information.

Hello!

Before we finish the description of exercises on the development of visual memory, a little look forward. But to do this, we will make a short digression into the history. From the point of view of the development of intelligence, psychological techniques and techniques, the secret services were always on the level.

For example, when Kalugin surrendered the secret equipment that was installed in the American embassy in Moscow, the Americans were only grabbing at the head from the devices that they found due to the traitor. For example, in the office of the ambassador stood a statuette. It was mounted transmitter. I imagine that he was relied on for the receiver, if he could not be booked for many years.

But most of all, the source of power, a microbattery, which could work for about a hundred years, was struck. It is clear that this is not a chemical element, radioactive, but to make it so that no one can detect ... After all, you will not once a year send an electrician to the ambassador with the request to allow you to replace the battery. No wonder the Americans quickly built a new embassy building after that. And it's not for nothing that Kalugin is now in the US under the careful guard of the American special services.

In the field of psychotechnology is also a lot of interesting. Influence on people, the ability to get information - somehow this question, how much it will be possible to extract materials, we will mention. Volodya completely refused to speak on this subject. Well, maybe I'll persuade you somehow.

But from the point of view of the development of intellect, memory, the ability to remember, nothing supernatural could come up with an analysis. Just the development of these qualities, but according to the best, specially selected techniques.

I once asked Vladimir about how his career was moving. I started with an ordinary operative. And at first no educational institution did not finish. Just passed the exams and tests. One of the tests will be in the next mailing list. Test for memorization and understanding of the material.

After working for about two years as an ordinary operative, he was sent to study. And there was already a lot of time devoted to the development of intellectual abilities. And all these exercises students did. But today we will end with visual memory.

"... In fact, despite the revolutionary ardor and impulse, the Cheka nevertheless took all the best from the tsarist special services, and many of the techniques are of rather ancient origin, but it also speaks for them - time tested.

By the way, I'm very curious - does anyone do these exercises? I suspect that very few. It is important to start and get involved. Somewhere in a couple of months you get used to it, and everything turns out by itself. But you can and do not try to do everything at once, try one thing, and then everything else starts to work out, and the hunt will appear. It is important to just feel in yourself that let a little bit, but new opportunities begin to open up. And every success you need to notice and celebrate.

And today such exercises.

Exercise 6. Look for a short time in the drawer of your desk. Or go to the kitchen and take a look at the table. Try to memorize all the objects that you will see. Then after twenty or thirty minutes, look at the objects again. But before that, try to answer the question - what did I see? How many items? Then check. Exercise is enough to perform a couple of times a day. After that week two you can easily and without effort remember all the subjects. The most important thing is that you will see clear pictures and absolutely accurately reproduce what you see.

Exercise 7 . This is a very simple exercise, and, most importantly, very interesting. In any case, I really loved doing it. Choose a friend that you see almost every day. Or a relative. Let's say that today just look at him carefully. And the next day try, that is called, to find differences. Changes in the hairstyle. Clothing. Gestures. Facial expression. At first, especially if it's a man, it will seem that nothing changes. Day after day, the same suit, the same hairstyle. But gradually you will be able to celebrate the slightest changes. It seems that yesterday the pocket of his jacket was protruding, and today - no.

Just do not do it with tension and compulsion. Another will think that you are a little wrong.

Exercise 8 . In the evening, before going to bed, try to visually present all the people that crossed the day. It was to remember how they looked. What a visual impression you got. Well, all at first and not necessarily, but seven people try to remember.

You yourself will be surprised how little you remember. But gradually the picture will be recreated more and more bright and bright. The fact is that you did not just try to remember everything, but just remember everything. Time after time you give the brain a command to remember. There is tension. And then, in order to avoid this stress, the brain will begin to command the memorization.

The analogy is so relative ... Especially the last thought. But nevertheless I will say that simply the desire to train visual memory, to try to remember what usually did not try to remember, gives excellent results. The brain is gradually included in the work to a fuller extent. Hence, more and remembers.

Well, we made the basic backbone. The visual memory should improve. Exercise, the desire to remember leads to the fact that it becomes a habit. Gradually, of course. But the skill is developed. A skill as a matter of fact means automatism. That is, without much effort, you will remember much more. And do not forget about attention, without it nothing will be ... "

Well, in the next newsletter, we again sum up some results, we will outline everything concisely. Simply designate all exercises with short sentences. So you will be much easier to navigate. In addition, you just make sure that an easy reminder allows you to recall both the essence of the questions and the details. Well, and the test story.

And now the announcement.

Our Center for Intellectual Technologies conducts an admission to the correspondence course of Development of Memory and Intellect. The course is 14 brochures with audio applications. The program of the course in many respects coincides with the program of a similar course of one of the educational institutions still of the Soviet KGB. What the program does:

·          development of attention and concentration;

·          development of memory as a function of the brain;

·          compiling your own memorization system;

By e-mail constantly updated additions and various novelties. In addition, you will be able to consult and ask questions. At the end of the course you will receive a souvenir (we will say so, very useful), which we are preparing with one interesting specialist who, by the way, kindly agreed to take part in the conduct of this newsletter.

Applications are accepted by e-mail pobeda@anitex.by .

Good luck!


Secrets of intelligence development in special services. Issue. 10

Newsletter Secrets of Intelligence Development in Special Services Issue 10. A conversation and an examination story.

Hello!

First - a message that will go in all the nearest issues of all newsletters. We receive a lot of letters asking to send out the previous issues of mailings. We, of course, do not deny anyone, but, to be honest, it's quite routine. Therefore, we immediately appeal to everyone - on our website www.shram.kiev.ua there is an ARCHIVE page, on which there are all issues of all our eight mailings. If there is no release, go and download.

So, we finished the exercises for the development of visual memory. No doubt, these are not all possible options, but the main thing you still got. Case, as they say for small - start and finish. Rather, not even finish, but continue, because there is no limit to development.

Today we will not start new complexes. I just asked Volodya a few questions, he answered them. Perhaps, and it will seem interesting to you. Actually, I will not bring questions, just bring it all in the form of a story. You will understand, of course, about what I asked.

"... Actually, I do not really want to talk about myself. He graduated from the military school, and after I was offered to go to the KGB to work. By the way, I, too, sagged on this matter. We were recruited for ordinary operational work. Of course, first of all looked at the state of health. But they also looked at the head. That is, they examined. I passed the exams, buddy, too. True, something he had been sighted with and was therefore offered to go to the technical department. He refused, there is practically no prospect, a maximum - a lieutenant-colonel, and even then a long wait. In addition, books have read, romance, we also carried away. Although who knows ... There, too, it turns out, it's interesting, only then do you understand.

So, there were two admission exams on subjects that worried you. The first - instructed two hours to go on any route in the city. Next day, along with the instructor, I followed the same route and told about the differences that you saw in comparison with yesterday. Of course, about the little things like a full or incomplete urn or something inconstant, like the number of people at the bus stop was not asked. But here's the schedule of the store - easily. Or was the seller replaced at the Soyuzpechat stall.

By the way, I passed it well. Well, we were also warned that we need to show our attention and observation. So they tried hard.

Then they gave a sheet of paper with a story for 10 minutes. And the story is such, depicting the operational task. So, at first a little frivolously reacted, they say, into spies play. But we were warned that no toys, you can easily collapse. By the way, younger children were not to be warned, they tried hard and so.

And then they asked questions on the story and waited for no more than five seconds. A little more - all, penalty points.

(I asked Vladimir to compose such a story, he unexpectedly easily agreed.) The story and questions will go at the very end of the newsletter, under the signature, so as not to interrupt, so to speak, narrative).

In general, they accepted me for operational work. I'm not going to tell her, just do not think it's shadowing or something like that. There their specialists, for each issue specially trained.

And without detachment, as they say, from production, we were trained - shooting, physical training, general preparation, philosophy, political training ... Well, if we still somehow perceived philosophy, especially since the teacher was lucky, the political training ... In in general, fiercely hated. The subject is not really so important, but the demand is pohlesche, than with fire training, and the summaries are mandatory. Now, thank God, there is no such thing.

Well, the development of memory was paid attention. But so, not especially we strained, at the minimum. That's when ... the educational institution entered, there just the political training was inferior to the lessons on the development of all skills, including memory. I was offered to enter after two years of work in the operational service. I agreed without hesitation, here both the interest and the perspective were clearly seen. There, by the way, exams were more difficult. The same walk around the city, the same story, only more difficult. And a lot of tests.

(Somehow I'll talk to Volodya about this).

Well, we were constantly engaged in this all. The episode in the film "The Shield and the Sword," in which Johann Weiss remembers the list of 17-page extermination camps, is not fiction. That's how we were taught. And this is not fiction. Just development.

The most important thing is not to believe in miracle pills, twenty-fifth frames, hypnosis and other mura (although hypnosis is not mura, it was taught and applied can be chic), but in your own strength and in the fact that you can greatly develop them.

As for your course, in general, I spoke out, everything was decent, we were taught something like that, if only I added some moments of psychological preparation. It seems not directly in your topic, but in fact very much even useful.

(I immediately took the "bull by the horns" and we put a plan of several disks and manuals, but this will take about six months.) Thoughts are interesting, but implementation will take time).

In general, Yura (Volodin comrade, used to work in one department) showed you the program to our academy, so that he could see what and how.

(Well, I did not just compare it, it just touched something).

Yes, the main thing is not even the program ... The man wants to - everything will be. The main thing is that everything should be in the hunt. Maybe at first and through strength, but then skills will begin to appear and then it will be difficult to stop. The most important thing is that your skills will remain with you, and you will not be able to do anything worse ... "

In the next issue - new exercises, now on a different topic. And then there will be an examination story. And Vladimir suggested this option. After the first, in the next mailing list, he will tell you how he performed this task and why he did it perfectly, and a new story. You will try again.

Our Center of Intellectual Technologies continues to receive a correspondence course in the Development of Memory and Intellect. The course is 14 brochures with audio applications. The program of the course in many respects coincides with the program of a similar course of one of the educational institutions still of the Soviet KGB. What the program does:

·          development of attention and concentration;

·          development of memory as a function of the brain;

·          compiling your own memorization system;

·          the ability to memorize any kinds of information - digital, visual, verbal;

·          the ability to easily memorize foreign words and forcefully learn languages;

·          the ability to remember people, their names and surnames, basic characteristics;

·          the ability to work fruitfully with texts of any complexity.

By e-mail constantly updated additions and various novelties. In addition, you will be able to consult and ask questions. At the end of the course you will receive a souvenir (we will say so, very useful), which we are preparing with one interesting specialist who, by the way, kindly agreed to take part in the conduct of this newsletter.

And Vladimir suggested how to reduce the cost of the course by about half. We will certainly do so.

Applications are accepted by e-mail pobeda@anitex.by .

Good luck!

Task number 1. After reading the story, answer the questions. The main thing - carefully read. The answer to the question with a pause is not more than five seconds. Naturally, you can compare the answers only later. Three reads of the text are allowed. Answer the questions after I scratched them and after an hour or two after reading.

"... At 12-30 you need to meet a man near the bookstore number 7.

He will be dressed in a brown jacket, on his head - a checkered cap. He will ask you for a match and will offer a "Winston" cigarette in return.

In his hand, he will have a package wrapped in dark red paper and wrapped in scotch tape. No passwords are needed.

Take the package and take the 20th bus.

Exit at the fifth stop, cross the street and go into the second arch of the house opposite the stop.

In the arch turn right, go to the eighth entrance.

The code on the door of the entrance is 790.

You rise to the fourth floor, apartment 113.

Call twice briefly, then once long, in half a minute - once again briefly.

A woman in a green dressing gown will open the door for you.

Say: "Hello, I brought you a parcel from Nikolai Mikhailovich."

She will invite you to enter. You will stay there for 20 minutes.

Then leave the house and go to the stop on the same side as the house.

You will sit on trolley 15 and drive four stops. Exit, from the payphone at the bus stop, call 229-51-85. Report that everything is done.

Then take the 4th bus and get to the stop "School".

Go to the "Soyuzpechat" and buy a notebook. Just say that you need a "medium-sized notebook with sheets in a box, preferably small."

After that, by 14:30 you will arrive at the place. "

Questions:

1.       Number of the apartment where you need to go and transfer the package?

2.       What kind of cigarettes will you be offered at the bookstore?

3.       Number of the bookstore?

4.       On which bus do you need to get to the "Soyuzpechat" store?

5.       The code on the door of the entrance?

6.       How to call the apartment?

16.   Is there an elevator in the house?

17.   Which side is the stop that you need to leave after you leave the house?

In general, the task is very simple. It is very important to compare the answers immediately after reading and after an hour. We deliberately lightened it a little. The following will be more difficult.


Secrets of intelligence development in special services. Issue. eleven

Newsletter Secrets of Intelligence Development in Special Services Issue. 11. Methods of memorization and a new test story.

Hello!

First two messages:

1.       Sometimes for technical reasons there are failures with the encoding of the mailing. In this case, you can always find the release on our website. We apologize to the CONTENT server subscribers for the inconvenience.

2.       Often there are requests to send individual editions of the mailing. Again, on our website www.shram.kiev.ua on the ARCHIVES ARCHIVES page there are all issues of all our newsletters.

And now directly to the topic ... There were questions about the examination story, we answer all at once.

1.       The test was very simple. The number of errors allowed is 1, and this does not apply to the phone number.

2.       The test should have been performed in two stages - the answer to the questions immediately after reading and an hour later. Ideally, it would be nice to answer questions in a day. And the number of errors should not increase.

3.       It was precisely such a plan that the test was given at the admission examination. But only more difficult. This is what we will present today at the end of the mailing.

4.       The question of the presence of an elevator in the house demanded the answer "I do not know", but not logical conclusions about the number of apartments, entrances, etc.

And now the word to Vladimir.

"... Frankly speaking, even such a simple text can not be memorized purely mechanically." It's clear that the excitement on the exam also prevents memorization. "In general, simple cramming gives little. Those who simply tried to read the text over and over again in the past, the questions answered very uncertainly.

Of course, when we began to learn memory systems, then we passed the tests playfully. And more complicated things cranked. For example, they show 20 photos of people, they give names and surnames. The time of displaying one photo is 15 seconds. Then show these photos in random order. Call people. One error lowers the score by a score. Failure is a dress or something. In general, many tests do.

To tell the truth, I was interested in the development of memory from school. I bought books. But honestly, I have not really studied one. The only one, however, read it. Probably, because it was thin, in the series "Library" Knowledge "came out." According to others, there was not enough to keep busy with assiduity.

And in this little book there are no exercises, just a story about memory and advice. So I took advantage of them. Councils, in general, unpretentious, but effective.

In short, I read the text only three times. I read it for the first time and imagined everything to myself. Consistently all the actions, like in the movies. I dialed phone numbers, even twisted my imaginary disk with my fingers. Figures memorized according to consonance. It's a shame to say, obscene. I will not quote them, you can also choose more decent consonances. For example, 7-2 - "just barely". Or 2-5 - "words to drive." About the consonance, by the way, I read it in that book.

In fact, there are a lot of memorizing techniques. But me and this baggage was enough. And most importantly, I read and represented. If the house with an arch and the fifth entrance to the right, then I represented a familiar house with an arch and walked to the right. If I'm going to trolleybus number 15, then I imagined the fifteenth route in my city. If there was no such route, I thought it up.

And it's very important not to hurry. The picture in the head should not be sketchy, but coherent, consistent. That is, presented one episode - connect it with the previous one, so that there is a single chain. He stopped - he presented the whole picture again to make it whole.

The second time I read it, I did not just read it. I remember pictures first. And only if the picture turned out to be fuzzy and it did not turn out to make it clear, I looked at the text. But only when it really did not work. Because trying to remember gives much more than just reading the text again.

Well, the third time I just remembered and almost did not look at the text. Unless for self-examination.

The method, it can be said, did not fail. When I first answered questions, I answered everything. The second survey was in about an hour. And the opportunity to write a story and repeat it was not. In this case, it's best to repeat it in about fifteen minutes, not mechanically, but introducing it. Then in half an hour. Then before the poll. By the way, an interim repeat in half an hour was not at all obligatory. Rather, for confidence and tranquility. The most important repetition is 10-15 minutes after the first survey.

So I passed the test for memorization without a single mistake. And I will also say that if you get too nervous, nothing good will happen either. By the way, the teachers helped us in this regard. They said that the test is a test so that we are used to it, etc. Then they explained that they so calmed us to check the real state of our memory. And calmed down and tuned us then taught ...

I will give due to the teachers-psychologists. Specialists of the highest qualification. It is clear that in such a place there could not be others. By the way, I have seen quite a lot of specialists of different profiles. And graphologists, and palmists ... By the way, I always treated palmists with some disdain. But when I saw what a real chiromant or astrologer is, somehow he changed his mind. It's not for you to scribble horoscopes in newspapers ...

Well, now the second test. Already on the present. (It should be noted that Vladimir, naturally, did not write anything, he just dictated me to the recorder, writing on the move, I took it all off, opened it, then called him.) I asked questions.) No mistakes.)

Maybe what I said will come in handy. Only this is the case, what to imagine pictures - it's not so usual. It's one thing, when you read and do not strain, the imagination will still work somehow. Another thing is to deliberately load yourself with the creation of pictures.

To read many times more habitually. Therefore, it seems that it is easier. In fact, it is much more difficult to remember ... "

The test and questions will be cited at the very end of the mailing list. In the next issue we will continue the story about the exercises that Vladimir recommends to perform for the development of memory and intellect.

We continue our recruitment to the Correspondence Course in the Development of Memory and Intellect. The course consists of 14 booklets with audio applications. The course gives:

·          Remembering "on the fly" texts, formulas, dates, phones and other complex information;

·          A sharp leap in memorizing foreign words quickly and without cramming;

·          Possession of concentration, speed reading;

·          Development of photographic memory and logic;

·          A sense of self-confidence and one's own strength.

By e-mail, supplements and applications are sent regularly, which stimulate the process of development of the system, contain interesting information, novelties of intellectual development systems.

The course is issued in two versions, which allows you to engage in productive work, and at the same time not to feel serious financial turmoil.

Applications are accepted at pobeda@anitex.by and mozart@anitex.by .

And now a test story.

"... At 9-45 you need to get 5 products №57 and 3 products №23.

At 10-50 you should be at the supermarket on Central Street.

From the payphone call 519-24-36 and inform that you have arrived.

At 11-00 will come the car of mark "Volga" with state number 19-54.

At the wheel will be the driver, dressed in a brown jacket. Show him the certificate.

By car, drive to house number 73 along Morskaya Street.

Go to the entrance number 3, go up to the third floor, apartment directly opposite the stairs, call "three long - two short - one long."

Go to the apartment and give all the products number 23. From there, call 219-19-45 and inform me that everything has been transferred.

After 10 minutes, go down, you will expect a car brand "Moskvich" with the number 63-65.

On it you will go to the Varshavskaya street to the store number 17 "Housewares". Go through the service room to the service exit and turn left.

You will reach the administrative building, enter the office number 8 and transfer the product number 57.

Another way back to the car and then drive to Popov street to house number 24. You will go into the basement room in the sixth entrance and ask Valery Vladimirovich.

He will show you a certificate in the name of Alexander Velichko and give you a green folder tied with a black braid.

Take the folder to Chekhov Street in the storage room of the bus station. Leave it in cell 55, closing it with code B154.

After that, you will return to your place. "

This test is more complicated. Questions:

1.       What is the driver of the Volga?

Newsletter Secrets of Intelligence Development in Special Services Issue 12. Answers to letters and start a new cycle of exercises

Hello!

We received many letters with stories about how the second test was going. We are pleased to note that many wrote that Vladimir's simple advice helped them to answer questions well.

There are questions of this kind - on what system it is necessary to carry out the given eight exercises, how much time to be engaged by everyone, etc. Below we give Vladimir's answers to these questions.

Once again, I recall one episode from the film "The Shield and the Sword," which, by the way, played a decisive role in many ways: I am now actively engaged in the development of memory and intellect.

Do you remember how our intelligence officer Yogan Weiss was quickly shown the list of camps for destruction, he remembered it, and then reproduced it from the resident? The impression was that he simply took pictures of the pages, and then just read the information.

The book is described a little more accurately. Weiss came from Herr Landsdorf, from whom he looked through the list, quickly went to the kiosk, bought a newspaper and made notes in it. I suspect that I used some kind of memory system.

But the word to Vladimir.

"... About how to do the exercises ... In general, it's stupid to stumble all over at once. You can start with one of them, and from any one. You've felt the successes, the shifts - you can move on to the next. It's important not to overdo it so that the classes go to And then a couple of days someone will work out, and then gradually all this business will throw.

I developed memory, so to speak, in several ways. But the main ones are observation, concentration, constant training and a mnemonic system.

About Weiss. I have not seen such phenomena that seem to photograph the text. By the way, Weiss had to carry a mini camera. During the war, they were like that. Well, not modern minolts, which you can hide in a fountain pen, but still compact.

But what for a plot you will not make. So, Weiss did not take photos of the text, but simply read it quickly, singled out the main, let's say, only the names of the settlements and remembered them.

A person is not a set of photographs and audio cassettes. Not a camera or a tape recorder. Remember - yes. Mechanically take a picture - no. If somewhere they write about such phenomena, then, most likely, this is an exaggeration.

Many will start talking about Tibetan monks, yogis different. So, I will say for sure - they remembered, and not photographed.

We have looked at the materials of ANENERBO for a long time. During the Second World War, Hitler created such a laboratory, which had to be opened with all sorts of secrets. Including expeditions to Tibet were undertaken. So, in the reports there is nothing like this about the phenomena of "photographing". But much about the development of memory and the brain.

By the way, now it is fashionable to read a certain Lobsang Rampu, supposedly a Tibetan monk. More than ten books already. So, it's just literary delights of the radio operator of this expedition. And only three books. The rest are already under him and the success of the books was rewritten.

So there is less imagination, more reality. Although it does not bother to fantasize.

I would do it on Weiss's place. I looked through the page, looked at which system is better to remember, and began. Then really on the street and within 15-20 minutes is really a little to unload the memory - and repeat, and make notes. In general, as in the book approximately and described.

By the way, in the simulator you can include such an exercise, even call it "Yogan Weiss". First, a person learns the system of memorization, and then such a text is shown to him. And such chips help that the first time and the results were not bad, and the confidence appeared, and the skill was developed. That is, the levels can be done.

Well, we must go on. With visual memory like sort of figured out. It's time to take another one. For auditory memory.

We are used to the fact that the main perception of information in most cases, and overwhelming, is due to vision, visual memory and perception. Meanwhile, auditory perception plays no less significant role. Although, of course, there is a huge difference between visual and auditory perception.

Visual information is perceived more quickly, but it is proved that our memory better retains auditory impressions. Almost all of us remember what we heard better than what we read.

A vivid example - anecdotes. Think about how much better you remember what you told than what you read in the magazine anecdote.

Often, auditory perception works better than any other. Take the Bible and read it. And then ask someone to read it to you. You will notice the difference on the move.

Auditory memory is more long-term. You can put the experiments, but it's generally proven that after a long separation, people will recognize each other first of all by their voice.

And, let's say, a mechanic, who by hearing knows the smallest nuances of engine operation? Or Kisa Vorobyaninov, who heard the voice of Elena Stanislavovna Bour behind the door and instantly recognized him?

Here is another argument. From ancient times great epics, treatises have come down to us. They were passed from generation to generation in an oral, so to speak, way. It is safe to say that such volumes can be learned by ear and much harder to read. The same Tibetan monks memorized almost everything by ear.

Reading aloud is good for memorizing read texts and capturing the meaning of words and texts in memory. By the way, tests from previous mailings with reading them out loud are much easier and more accurate.

The ear is much thinner, receptive and sensitive to the eye, no matter how paradoxical it may sound.

And most importantly, perhaps, for our topic - auditory memory and "auditory attention" to develop much easier than visual memory. Exercises are easier, without much effort and distractions from the current affairs are carried out. And the effect begins to manifest much faster ... "

In the next issue, we will give the system of exercises for the development of auditory memory. For now, digest the information received, prepare for new interesting exercises.

Another question that we are asked is about the timing of admission to the Course of Development of Memory and Intellect. There are no such dates. Classes begin immediately after the receipt of the parcels and once a week sent applications - stimulating and containing new information.

About the timing of the record, nothing is going to say anything either. We just prepared 100 sets. Already 58, it means that there are 42 left. And the next lot will probably be cooked somewhere in a year. Maybe a little earlier - time will tell.

Today we will not hammer you with the advertising of the Course. Just send an e-mail to pobeda@anitex.by and mozart@anitex.by .

Good luck!


Secrets of intelligence development in special services. Issue. 13

Newsletter Secrets of Intelligence Development in Special Services Issue 13. We continue to develop auditory memory and observation.

Hello!

We continue the description of the system of exercises on intelligence development in special services. Recall that this is a series of conversations with the colonel of the special services, who passed the way from the operational officer to the head of the department, from lieutenant to colonel. The idea of ​​mailing was prompted by the fact that I just once drew attention to the memory state of Vladimir (as his name suggests), the accuracy of the analysis, and a host of other qualities.

And I was convinced, and Vladimir proved it to me and said that initially he did not possess any outstanding talents. Rather, a decent questionnaire and good health. And he passed the memory test at the reception easily. And the test was quite simple, as you already saw. Newsletters are just recorded voice recordings of conversations with Vladimir. And the fact that the newsletter does not go out so often is due precisely to the fact that it is quite labor-consuming to take the text off the record. But the word to Vladimir. By the way, in parallel the answer to letters and questions.

"... Many of them somehow stood up for the defense of Lobsang Rampa. (We will recall that in one of the previous issues it was said that this is not a Tibetan monk, but only a radio operator of the German expedition ANENERBO).

Well what can I say? There is no need to raise any secret materials, it is enough to work skillfully, sometimes even with open sources. Read a lot. But it is not easy to read out of curiosity, but rather to string and tie together fresh and old facts.

Approximately as in the case of Sutyagin. The person in the newspaper can tell the person more than a pile of materials with a stamp "Secretly". Somehow we will consider an example of dealing with open sources.

It's the same with this Rampa. The analysis of the text, the geography of the narratives clearly indicates what the European wrote for a long time in the East .... But now it's not about this speech.

(A small digression: In Vladimir, I never noticed a passion for religion or occultism, but I have a curious episode with him.) I introduced him to one Tibetan scholar who skillfully portrayed the disciple of one of the Tibetan gurus. And one of the main arguments he had apart from everything else was the recording of the OM's mantra made by him, everything was done according to the canons, it seemed to be impressive ...

Vladimir in three minutes figured out that this is an ordinary erudite crook and swindler, who, moreover, worked on the field of healing. It's just that he did not want to get a case against him on the fact of fraud - a lot of other work.

By the way, if someone in Belarus falls under the charm and influence of some extraordinary person (and all these pseudo-gurus are rather unusual), you can apply for consultations.

Vladimir, by the way, figured out the deception by ear ... By the way, a good reason to go directly to the subject of mailing.)

Let us continue with the development of auditory memory and observation. Sometimes something to hear is worth a lot. And the ability to catch the finest shades of a person's voice can give you information that you can not get in another way. Most importantly, it is quite easy to develop.

Let's start with a simple exercise . So, if you are traveling in public transport, just try to listen, grab for a few minutes an extract of the conversation of passengers. After a while you will begin to hear a lot. Keep it in mind. To catch the nuances.

Purely practical benefits in this little. Little does that say in the trolley. And I do not urge anyone to engage in eavesdropping and other people's secrets.

Just tell yourself honestly that you usually listened to only if you were interested in something. And here it is just a habit to not only listen but also hear.

The next exercise . Learn the voices. In a new way, listen to your friends. Pay attention to the characteristic features of their voice, timbre moments, accents, characteristic turns, etc. Previously, when communicating, you only watched the meaning, now learn to follow and voice. Learn the types of voices. Learn the types of dialects. Compare the voice with the spiritual image of a person.

For example, only by voice I can figure out who he voted for in elections, what would he not say then.

The most vivid example of the discrepancy between the voice and what is said in this voice is Zhirinovsky. In speeches a lot of things, but in the voice of lumpen, liar, boor and scandal. The word does not hold. Extremely selfish. Greedy. It is erudite superficially. Arrogant is unusual in the type of "from the mud - to the princes." Vengeful, rancorous. The mass of complexes that can be overcome only through the humiliation of others, not even through money. You can lie, the voice does not deceive.

However, everyone knows about Zhirinovsky and so everyone knows ... New did not discover anything. But by voice I will determine his voter, as if he, for example, did not speak high-handedly, if he knows how to do it.

By the way, many politicians take a voice. In the sense of not a sip, but in a voice. A lot of examples, when the results of elections were determined by votes.

So listen, catch the melody of the voice.

You, maybe, are disappointed by the fact that such are the non-specific methods. In fact, they are very rich. You just start listening.

Exercise three . Again, done in public places. After listening to someone's voice, but without seeing the speaker immediately, draw a mental portrait of himself. Then imperceptibly compare it with the original. Just compare.

Over time, the skill of voice will come to determine the appearance of a person unerringly. One can argue that there are a lot of cases when a very beautiful voice belonged, let us say, to a not very handsome man. But this is a superficial judgment. Thin nuances can all be said. But they need to learn how to catch.

Vladimir is not a strong connoisseur of our stage, but I showed him photos and records of several singers and singers who knew that they were being sung by someone else.) No mistake.)

Exercise four . Include a well-known song. In the middle of the song, turn off the sound, but continue to play it in your mind. After about a minute, turn on the sound. The task is to get to the exact place.

This is only the beginning of the complex. Start right tomorrow, not only listen, but also hear. The most interesting for you will begin when the first successes come ... "

Let's pause. Because the following exercises will be a little more complicated. Or not even harder. More likely, more specifically. Although this is all relative ...

We continue our admission to the Course of Development of Memory and Intellect. About him already written a lot, so that once again we will not describe it. Just pay attention to:

·          Of the 100 sets prepared for today, there are 31 sets left, and when we prepare the next lot, we do not know yet;

·          the more that the development of the next course under the provisional title "Sherlock Holmes" is coming to an end, the essence of which we will tell. Let's just say that it included a lot of interesting and useful things. True, no mysticism and magic, but the magic results. At least a few testers, on whom it is tested, it is already felt. To our joy. By the way, they all went to start the course.

·          Applications are accepted at pobeda@anitex.by and mozart@anitex.by .

By the way, we answer the question: "What, is the Course of Development of Memory and Intellect insufficient?". The answer is no limit to development.

Good luck!
