Newsletter Secrets of the development of intelligence in the special services Acquaintance

Newsletter "SECRETS OF INTELLIGENCE DEVELOPMENT IN SPECIAL SERVICES"

Release 1.

The idea of ​​mailing arose for two reasons. The first is that a comrade called to us at the Center for Intellectual Technologies ; he bought a book from the head of the Center I.Poloneychik's "How easy it is to study and pass exams." It turned out a former scout. He praised the book, noted that much of what was given in it was used in the preparation of a special school, which he finished. After this lyrical digression, he began to solicit a response to the topic "And who, in fact, allowed it to publish, moreover in open form, and even with such a scholarly title of the book?".

What to do, the person remained in the old time, he is so comfortable. Yes, and the "secrets" that we opened in this book are clearly not Kalugin's delivery of tracking systems.

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

It became interesting - and how did he do everything? We decided to just make inquiries. Oleg Stepanov advised to read about this episode right in the book of Vadim Kozhevnikov, according to which the film was made. Indeed, in the book, Weiss remembered, then on the street in the kiosk he bought a newspaper and made some marks in it. Yeah, so without mnemonics, that is, the art of memorization has not done.

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 working now in the field of struggle with, I dare to assure you, all evil spirits and rubbish. He agreed to tell me something, but at the same time, given that he is still in the service, not to advertise his participation in this project.

I must say that this is a wonderful person, a real officer, honest and principled. This is all I said without a hint of irony. Believe it or not, there are still such people.

He agreed to help only after it was proved to him that this would contribute to the intellectual development of the people, reduce the number of under-performing students and schoolchildren, etc.

I myself am engaged in mnemonics, but in a conversation with my friend (and we touched on a bunch of topics), I made some mistakes on purpose, like confusion of historical dates for our history, events, the number of goals of our team and so on (you can imagine what kind of conversation !), and every time he purely mechanically corrected me.

Then I told him about it, to which Volodya (the name has already been declassified!) Laughed and said that he noticed this trick that was not rich in fantasy and decided to play along with me a little.

But then it was already about more serious things. Strictly speaking, we now turn to the topic of mailing.

one.       REQUIRED QUALITIES

We will not give all the stories of Vladimir literally, especially since the transcripts and recordings of conversations were not conducted. Relied on their memory. :)

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

"... No doubt, people were taken to our system. And all the same, despite the fact that the work was special, they still came to us for blatantness as well. Sons of chiefs, party bosses. But even among those who were selected, there were usually no geniuses Of course, abilities are above average, but not enough to say that we were the intellectual elite. In general, ordinary guys. Yes, and physical condition, an important factor, yet not always side by side with memory, acumen, learning ability.

The whole thing was in the training system. The most powerful educational technology and ordinary coercion. Of course, from this newsletter of yours (Volodya with some distrust towards the Internet) people will learn a lot of things, systems are different, exercises.

But then ask them at some stage:

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

Frankly, if we were not forced to do everything, we would have cooled to everything in a month, would have become lazy, would have started putting everything off until later. But you know, hard the first time. Not physically. Then, when you draw in, when you see what it gives, how much you become smarter than yourself, you don’t have to force anything. But it is necessary to reach this stage.

Let's start with the fact that first of all - the development of memory. This, of course, is a mnemonics, that is, a memorization technique. Here you are an expert yourself, so I won't reveal anything new to 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 observation, the ability to see, hear and feel, attention and concentration, and imagination.

Exercises I will give, you yourself can tell something, just that. You can achieve a state of constant concentration of attention. And you should not think at all that this is some kind of tense state, all the time gloomy and perplexed, always looking out for something, you are tracking someone down and you are afraid to step.

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

Much of the twenty-fifth frame was written. And in the advertisement they said that "so far only in the special services!". It probably works. Yes, that's just somewhere you find, but you can lose a lot. In general, the subconscious is a subtle thing. You will start to do something with it, and everything seems to be correct, according to theory, but someday it will shoot like that ...

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

In general, so. Take a pause. I think over the system, what to do. So you will issue. "

It seems to you that while there is not enough information. But do not forget that this is the first conversation. Painfully we were distracted by free topics.

So wait for the continuation. It will appear soon.

GOOD LUCK!

Newsletter Secrets of the development of intelligence in the special services Second issue

Hello!

We continue to publish with the foreign intelligence officer who is working now, 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 more than once wanted to leave the service, the processes going on in the former USSR, he clearly does not like. I note that he never engaged in the pursuit of dissidents, intellectuals, recruiting snitches and stuff. He really served the motherland. I do not want to idealize him, but I have the most respectful attitude towards him.

Today we publish a second conversation, the topic of which

"WHY GREAT DIARYS?"

“You've probably heard that many great people kept diaries. Of course, these are not girlish little notes on the topic“ who likes and who doesn't. ”Of course, the last thing they thought about was that once they would publish and investigate the descendants. They did not think about the trace in history. They just worked. But the diaries kept running. Why? And what did they write there?

From the very name "diary" it is clear that it was primarily about the description of the events of life. Naturally, with observations, some estimates, emotions. Still, the ultimate goal of creating diaries was generally incomprehensible. The diary is understandable, but the diary ... Only time to waste.

In fact, the diary is a great memory training. Just superb. For several reasons.

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

Secondly, it is known that, first of all, the facts that have an emotional tint are remembered. If you just memorize numbers, then this is quite a boring task. But if you bring emotions into this business ... Not without reason there is even such a term-definition “over-activation of memory through the re-creation of emotions”.

Now imagine that from time to time a person returns to the diary, rereads it. Events immediately come to life, facts come to light. And there is an active process of remembering.

Of course, the diaries least of all thought about training the memory, each had some motive to do it. But here you can make a diary using the targeted memory training. And the effect of it is just fantastic.

So, how it was done in our School. We just kept diaries in the evenings every day and handed them over to our superiors. It’s not that they wanted to know our intimate or very personal secrets, it was just a statement of how the work was done. In the morning we also had time to re-describe the day. And the diaries returned to us, and we just read them.

You know, if you try this, the effect is simply amazing. What is - I will not say. Understand those who start doing it.

Then we were told to describe not just the past day, but two days - “today and yesterday”. Then another day added. And when we reached the level of "three days", did it with ease, then we began to notice how much our memory has developed.

Now imagine what the effect was when we reached the level of "seven days"!

The meaning of keeping a diary was simple - an ordinary discipline, the transfer of the obligation of keeping a diary into a habit.

But you can do the same without a diary. Just remember the day before going to bed and let's evaluate your actions. Answer the questions "What did I do and what did not do?", "Where was I right, and where was not?" and so on. This is the same activation of memory through the re-creation of emotions.

And in the morning, remember yesterday. And so gradually you reach the level of "seven days." I have to say 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 record the events. And they will play the role of keys, allowing "to pull out from memory" and details.

Hope I convinced your followers to do diaries.

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

Intelligence and special services - 4

Newsletter Secrets of the development of intelligence in the special services Fourth edition

Hello!

We continue the cycle of conversations about the development of intelligence in the special services. More specifically, in educational institutions of the Soviet KGB. Note that they proved their professionalism during the time of their existence, while the USSR was. We hope that the FSB has preserved its 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, the discussion will focus on the development of certain qualities, which were emphasized in the educational process in the KGB schools, including the school in the city of N.

So, a word to Vladimir.

“... A professional cannot be a hat’s hat too. Roughly speaking, he should not“ catch a raven. ”But speaking seriously, attention, concentration, and observation. By the way, I didn’t use the word professional to give meaning to myself. I said, and I will say more, it refers to any kind of activity, be it work with us or in a store.

A person whose attention is hovering in the middle of nowhere, no concentration, not talking about observation, is doomed in life. They often talk about intuition. I do not argue, maybe there are some options for foresight, but, in my opinion, intuition is the ability to foresee events and results based on the information received. And the more information, the stronger the intuition.

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

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

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

(I must say that I was already thinking about something else).

Attention tends to dissipate, jump from one to another. And if you do something, then you can hold it in place for about 15-20 minutes at most. And you need attention to be active. This is what you need to train.

By the way, the example with the phone is quite a good exercise. Just need to do it like this. Let's say before bedtime start thinking about something. After some time, when you realize that the attention has already gone far, try to make a return trip, that is, 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. No distractions. It’s easy at first glance, actually learning two minutes to see the second hand is quite difficult. But when this skill comes, I can say that the first step towards becoming a “professional” has been taken.

How many people lose because of their carelessness! Let's say a man came to you, a good psychologist, offers you a business, convinces you and you go ahead with songs. Then bite your elbows. And if he were attentive, he would have noticed imperceptibly for himself that the tie obviously does not fit the shirt, there is a tasteless ring on his hand, fingers run around or something else. Here that very intuition would have said a word, and would have sent a person away, and escaped trouble.

And so you paint the prospect and you, instead of turning on the attention to the full, with your thoughts go to this very perspective. This is where they catch you.

Or communication with the tax or even with any such service. They affectionately tell you: “Pay taxes and sleep well, dear comrade!”, Convince you that you need to pay some kind of fine that you do not really have to pay, and you leave with a feeling of gratitude to a good tax inspector. And I would turn on the attention and notice some details that would say: "Stop! You are bred!"

(I must say that Volodya struck a chord. I’ve come across a few times, paying some fines for minor misdemeanors. Then I learned that I couldn’t do this, and I’m paying money!)

So, attention must be included constantly. You can say that you have to be constantly concentrated. And it should be done without efforts on oneself, efforts will bring nothing, sooner or later you will get tired.

So here are some exercises and one piece of advice.

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

Exercise is very famous, but the benefits of it are enormous. You already realized that you need to look in order all the numbers from 1 to 25 in order. It’s normal if you spent about 45 seconds. Try to bring the result to 30 seconds. Master Standard

It is advisable to exercise with these tables more often.

The second exercise . When talking on the phone, draw tic-tac-toe on the sheet, that is, these figures one after another. And do not lose the thread of conversation. Get the picture to be beautiful and not creeping in all directions. Then complicate the task - draw two crosses, then a toe, and so on.

The third exercise . Standing in line or while riding in public transport, count from 100 to 1 in three. That is, 100-97-94 and so on. Gone off - right there start again. And so until confidence appears. Then from 200 to 1. Then change the coefficient of the account.

And advice . All this will not bring benefit if there is no personal interest in it in everything, if you treat boredom in exercises. Come up with, in the end, the plot itself some fascinating. The main thing is to have an interest. If he doesn't, nothing will help ... "

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

Good luck!


5th edition of 'Secrets of the development of intelligence in the special services'

Newsletter Secrets of the development of intelligence in the special services 5th edition

Hello!

It just so happened that we were delayed with the next release. There are several reasons.

Firstly, there was an elementary lack of time - the seminars went, but we do not allow for hack-work, we held events with full responsibility and the result was satisfied with the audience.

Secondly, the system that we have described and will continue to describe is not a tablet. That is, there is no such drug to receive and everything is in order - the intellect has increased, the memory has considerably strengthened, attention and concentration have reached unattainable heights. According to it, it is necessary to study and practice persistently and for quite a long time. Reward - the result, the development or opening of their new level, which once seemed out of reach. But how often vanity and elementary laziness prevented all this from doing ...

And the thought crept in that no one would do it. And to write in vain ... But then something happened that we still hoped for. A letter came from one of our readers, in which he told us about the successes he had achieved by performing those simple tricks and exercises that we advised. Described in sufficient detail. True, he did not give us permission to quote his letter in the list. A demon of demand, we published innocuous letters a couple of times and ran into a rebuke.

Nevertheless, this letter instilled in us a certain optimism, and we decided to continue mailing. Even the usually skeptical Vladimir and he decided that it was not for nothing 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 of development of memory and intelligence. Of course, one way or another, these mailings can intersect with each other. In addition, the basis of the rate of 80 percent lay down those methods that are given and are given in educational institutions that train specialists of special services.

It is clear that there are specific disciplines, such as “The Psychology of Interrogation,” but, probably, one can learn something from them for our course.

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

"... Today, I discuss a little. In any case, the intensity of the initial impression is important. It is she who determines the degree of memorization and is proportional to the attention with which the subject of observation is concerned. This is, of course, not a discovery, 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, the acquisition of new skills will seem difficult and tedious.

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

All the desired qualities, which will be discussed at all, can be so developed by exercises and constant practice that they will unconsciously manifest, if necessary. If you really need focused attention, it will appear with you.

The same can be said about mental analysis. Get only a habit, and your mind will follow. If only to pave the path, and the mind is already going on it. And the secret in achieving such a development is an exercise, an exercise, an exercise, and gradual improvement.

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

Proceeding from this, 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 moment of receiving the first impression.

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

Thousands of objects appear in front of our eyes, thousands of sounds are perceived by our ear, smell, touch ... All the senses work.

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

And all that we will remember later will be precisely that object or fact, which we looked at, or that sound, to which we listened, or that definite thought, which did not give us peace at this moment.

Most of the visible, audible, felt by us is almost immediately forgotten, because we treat this with a very small degree of attention.

It is said that weak memory is weak attention, and that the habit of superficially observing and is the source of many troubles, including poor memory.

So now get down to business seriously ... "

Break down to the next time. I hope that now you will not wait so long. Moreover, Volodya suggested such a move - not to try to cover everything at once, but to concentrate on something, bring it to a logical end, and only then go further.

Good luck!

Secrets of the development of intelligence in the special services. Issue 6

Newsletter Secrets of the development of intelligence in the special services Congratulations and continued conversation.

Hello!

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

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

We continue to publish conversations with Volodya, a former foreign intelligence expert, now an employee of the internal front, so to speak. Do not think it is inappropriate for something, but once, at the request of Volodya, I had to, before, say, criminal elements, play the buyer of one type of product.

Someone ashamed of working with security services. You can understand if it was about squealing on comrades. But if you help catch the idiots who earn on our lives ... In general, I am proud of that episode. Essentially, I will not tell you yet. Not a secret thing. I do not want the co-author of these lectures to be "deciphered".

Now I wrote, many, after reading, frown ... Dissidents suffered, dissent was persecuted, and you praise the satraps. Now ask the former dissidents - many will respond to the KGB with respect, tell you that now it’s much easier to get into trouble.

Never did the guys from the KGB suggest me to commit baseness. By the way, I had a friend - the legendary musician Mike Naumenko (group "Zoo"). So he told me that when the Communist Party Committee instructed the St. Petersburg KGB to deal with rock musicians, they invited Mike, apparently because of intelligence and rare charm, they cheered for hours at the office, after which the “cart” went up explanatory work, put on the look ... ". And the musicians continued to create.

Guys, the police, all the services there are new-born - offices are corrupt and I despise them. But not the KGB. Serious office, respectable guys.

But to the point. I once asked Volodya: "But how was it that during the acceptance tests, the memory was not checked?". Well, the conversation went further.

“... You know, of course, they didn’t accept a bad memory. They gave an A4 sheet with the text of approximately the same content -“ At 17-15, citizen Petrov should take tram number seven to the “School” stop, go three quarters ,,, “and and so on. There was nothing complicated about it. Ordinary, in general, the story on the page.

Many of us went there for, so to speak, romantic considerations, well, and gave us such stories here. According to our moods. By the way, it helped with memorization.

I hadn’t done any special techniques before. But I can definitely say - if you do not just read, but read with interest, vividly imagine the action, then there will be no difficulty remembering the difficulties.

By the way, if you want, I will write an approximate such tale by the next meeting, let your readers try their hand. It will be a story and a series of questions for him. We simulate the exam.

But let's continue what we talked about last time. By the way, in general, now everything will not be scattered, from time to time, but consistently so that some thread will be there.

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

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

At our department of psychology, it was believed that the human mind can deal with only one subject at a time, but it can move from one subject to another so quickly that it seems that attention is divided between two or more objects.

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

Only people who can focus their attention can do so — throw the object and immediately devote all their attention to another.

Memory follows attention, and things are remembered better, the sensations from which are obtained when the mind is at rest and is not occupied with anything else.

Developed attention gives very clear impressions, sensations, images, strengthens a person’s 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 strong intense impressions, images, which they achieve by intensive mental work. A person with undeveloped attention receives much less information, and all the time he feels an urgent need for her ... "

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

Maybe it will seem to you that we spend too much time talking about the need to develop attention, but for good reason:

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

·          Many people think that their attention is sufficiently developed, and this question can be skipped. This is a deep misconception.

·          Finally, we want to stimulate the beginning of your work on improving attention and concentration. Sometimes it seems tedious and boring. Give these exercises importance for yourself, try to think of a game, a role, in the end, so that attention development classes become a pleasant and urgent need.

And now let me take my leave and congratulate you on the holidays!

Peace to your home!


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

Newsletter Secrets of the development of intelligence in the special services Issue 7. Beginning of a set of exercises for the development of observation and visual memory.

Hello!

We continue our newsletter. After a certain buildup, Vladimir and I entered into a rhythm and now the material will actually go sequentially, rather than “jumping” from fifth to ten.

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

What can I say? And only that I, obviously, was just lucky and I managed even during the years of stagnation to get acquainted with decent people from the KGB, with whom, by the way, I am still friends, despite my dissident past.

Secondly, they never offered me to engage in denunciations. Only once they asked to pose as a buyer of a single substance that some representatives of the criminal world tried to sell. Proceeding from universal morality (what they tried to sell, it did not fit into any framework), I agreed. In addition, we were united and united by a common hatred for this very criminal. I don’t know how, where, but in Belarus, in my opinion, only the KGB is fighting against them in the present, not entering into alliances and not engaging in the "protection" of the bandits.

Third, there were enough scoundrels outside the walls of the KGB. Alas, one of the biggest pranks was thrown to me by one of my former students, who, by the way, liked to scream at all the corners, "Down!"

But back to the topic. We continue the story of Vladimir.

"... First of all, a person perceives 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 of all given by an image.

Therefore, we will begin to develop, to begin with, visual memory and attention.

I have already talked about this, gave exercises. But now everything will go consistently, without jumps. By the way, you can get yourself a little notebook, where you can simply list all these exercises, look at it and just do the exercises at every opportunity. In total there will be 8 of them, today I will give the first three.

Exercise 1 This is one of the most simple but the most effective exercises for the development of observation. Its essence is in the ability to “see” the most ordinary things. Maybe it will seem easy at first, but try it and you will see that it is not quite so.

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

Then close your eyes and try to recall this subject with maximum precision. Try to remember its size, all the details and capture it all in your brain. Then open your eyes, take another look at the subject and see how it differs from the image you created.

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

A fairly small practice will give you a great skill and prepare you for further work and improvement.

Exercise 2 Having mastered the first exercise, take one of the objects you have mastered and, having obtained an exact 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 of you, but I just want to develop your observation and ability to remember what you see. For the first time, ask yourself something simpler, and you will not be disappointed. The quality of your drawings will depend not on the artistic talent, but on the details that you have memorized and were able to put on paper.

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

Exercise will give invaluable skills. These two exercises develop observation and the ability to memorize to such a strong degree that in a short time you will only be able to look at something once, and then make a sketch with all the main details.

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

In both exercises, change items more often, because it 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 Start by looking at the details, not remembering the general appearance of the subject. Do not try to “perceive” the entire object at first glance.

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

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

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

Look carefully at the nose, eyes, mouth, chin, hair color, overall head shape, etc. You will see that it will be easy for you to remember the nose of one, the eyes of another, the chin of the third, etc.

Before you begin, sit quietly and try to describe the appearance of any of your closest acquaintances. You yourself will be surprised at how obscure your image will actually be.

Admit to yourself that you have never thoroughly looked into them at all. If so, how can you hope to remember strangers? Start by looking at each person you meet and carefully examining your appearance, and then take a pencil and try to describe your appearance in words.

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

An equally useful exercise is the detailed examination of buildings. First, try to describe any building, by which you walk daily. You can make yourself some idea of ​​its general appearance, shape, color, etc.

But as for the number of windows, the type and size of the doors, the shape of the roof, cornices, decorations, etc., you will see that you are not able to see everything clearly. It will even seem to you that you have never really seen a house at all.

You just looked at him. Start by looking at the building on your way, to reproduce later in detail its details and see if you remember much.

The next day, engage in the same building and consider the new details (and there will be a lot of them), continue until you have a clear idea about this building.

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

But you need to overcome laziness and start doing the exercises. "

We will not overload you immediately, the remaining five exercises - in the next issue.

Good luck everyone!


Secrets of the development of intelligence in the special services. Issue eight

Newsletter Secrets of the development of intelligence in the special services Eighth edition. Review of the post and the continuation of a set of exercises for the development of visual memory and observation.

Hello!

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

one.       We are pleased that many have begun to perform the exercises that are given in previous releases of the newsletter. In this case, however, it is noted that, for example, an exercise in capturing an object in visual memory does not immediately work. That is, after you close your eyes, it is not possible to cause a clear picture, everything turns out to be vague.

The answer is no big deal, after some practice the clarity of the image will come. It is only important not to stop and continue to do the exercise. But when you get a positive result, it will give you new strength, besides, you will see how much better you will remember how much you will become more attentive and concentrated. And, as a result, success in work, school, career.

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

First, the obligatory recall in the morning. And no matter how you do it - with the help of a diary or not. Important to do. And it happens that in the evening everything will be recorded in the diary, and in the morning we don’t remember, the turnover is full. In this case, you do not develop memory, but just keep a diary.

Secondly, it is important not only to memorize events and to reproduce them later, but first of all to answer the questions "What have I done good? What are you dissatisfied with? What do you repent of? What are you proud of?" etc. It is important to fix not the fact of, say, buying a coupon in a kiosk, but to fix emotions . And it is not necessary then to spend half a day on remembering everything in a row.

Third, to increase the number of days to move when you confidently “pass” the previous level.

3       Our reader Svetlana Khodakova sent the following letter:

At one time, the Talk Show One-On-One program was broadcast on one of the central channels. For most TV viewers, it was remembered by the release in which V. Zhirinovsky launched a takan in B. Nemtsov.

In general, the style and goals of the program are clear - let the viewer observe how people who are, to put it mildly, on opposite sides of the barricades can communicate.

And so, the counterintelligence officer and the foreign intelligence officer became participants in one of the broadcasts. You know, I watched this issue with great pleasure.

First, the conversation went in the style of "I disagree with you" - further - a clear argument - why. The interlocutor (he would not have turned his tongue to call him an opponent), having listened carefully, or said “you are probably right”, or he brings counter-arguments. In short, the calm conversation of two Professionals.

The poor presenter periodically tried to interfere with his "Can you shake hands?" (The officers quickly shook hands and continued communication) and some other kind of on-duty phrases, but it looked obviously superfluous: apparently the invited were people of a different format - the show could not be done from their communication.

I can add that I didn’t see anything like this in this show: unfortunately, neither politicians nor businessmen behaved like that.

Let a small comment. This style of behavior and communication speaks precisely about Professionalism. We do not yet have professional politicians, since so far all this is more than some clan disassemblies and parties, cunning, lies, arrogance, etc. (Suffice it to recall the tricks of the unforgettable IWR or throwing ashtrays to Khakamada when she was offered to fly not in business class, and with ordinary passengers).

We are only creating normal businessmen, not oligarchs, who, by virtue of their connections, etc., caught the moment and made their capitals.

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

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

Professionalism gives rise to self-reliance and respect for the opponent. By the way, what remains for us? Become a Pro. I do not think that Berezovsky or Abramovich read this newsletter. Read ordinary people. As, however, and lead her.

Well, we confess, it does not shine to become oligarchs, it does not shine to break into politics. We are, in general, decent people. What remains to us? Become a Pro. And not only in terms of occupation. Professionals in life. And this can help including these exercises, which is and will be discussed in the mailing list.

Probably, I let something fog and reasoning, with which you may not agree. The last thing you want is for you to think that I want to take on the role of a sort of guru.

Just such thoughts were generated by Svetlana's letter, for which she thanks a lot. Because this letter is also an excellent motive for practicing, for overcoming your own laziness. By the way, if this digression seemed to someone superfluous, criticize, there will be no offense, but it will bring something good somewhere.

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

But we will continue our studies. Today we will give two more exercises. It was possible all five remained, but the letter long will turn out. Word of Vladimir.

"... This exercise ( exercise 4 - approx. Presenter ) we thought up at the school ourselves. Well, they came up with it ... Probably, someone suggested, however, it doesn’t matter. Now you can buy dice at every corner. You know, these are with points from 1 to 6. Buy 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 points.

Start with two bones, gradually increase to five. And try to reduce the time of the account. The tenacity of memory develops unusually.

And if there is also a partner for this business ... Then you can take a deck of cards and show each other cards. Show for a moment, and the partner must name the card. And the speed of the show all the time to increase. To a cursory, so to speak, look. Only in no case force events and try to immediately show phenomenal speed. She 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 an "adult".

Exercise 5. Here they talk a lot 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 it is now written in books and textbooks on speed reading. (I slipped the book on speed reading to Volodya for review. He did not smash and criticize it, just noted that they didn’t have it. But one circumstance - he skimmed it and, in general, caught the main point of what was written) .

But I read quickly enough. I do not even read, but keep track of information. It's all about practice. For example, we trained on newspapers.

Start simply by reading a few words with one glance, then whole phrases, passages, etc. With the development of such abilities, you just need to do what you do with the development of, say, muscles - first we develop one muscle, then we reach successively the whole muscle group.

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

What else good newspapers are is that they are often printed in such narrow columns. It is very convenient to train on them.

It is clear that America did not open. But many things really turn out to be simple. Simple, but not primitive. And in general, simplicity, not past the stage of complexity, is a primitive. Honestly, I did not invent it. I read it from one writer. ( Strange, I also thought that he did not remember the author of the phrase. Everything turned out to be simple - Volodya simply cannot stand this writer for some of his views ).

Training, coaching, training. And, as a result, the result ... "

We will continue in a few days. I don’t know where it’s coming from, but I have a firm conviction that the distribution of the newsletter should be no more than two A4 pages. Otherwise, they will not read. And so it seems, and you absorb information, and you do not get tired. Again, maybe I'm wrong.

By the way, I reminded Volodya about the promise to bring a "training story." We agreed that when we were done with visual memory, we would immediately give a story.

Good luck everyone!


Secrets of the development of intelligence in the special services. Issue 9

Newsletter Secrets of the development of intelligence in the 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, let's look a little ahead. But in order to do this, we will make a small excursion into history. From the point of view of the development of intelligence, psychological techniques and methods, special services were always on the level.

For example, when Kalugin passed the secret equipment that was installed at the American embassy in Moscow, the Americans only grabbed their heads from the devices they found thanks to the traitor. For example, in the office of the ambassador was a statuette. A transmitter was mounted in it. I imagine that he would rely on him for the receiver, if for many years he was not able to be charged.

But especially everyone was struck by the power source, a microbattery, which could work for about a hundred years. It is clear that this is not a chemical element, radioactive, but to make it so that no one could find ... After all, you will not send an electrician to the ambassador once a year asking for permission to replace the battery. No wonder the Americans urgently built a new embassy building after that. And it’s not for nothing that Kalugin is now in the USA under the careful guard of American special services.

In the field of psychotechnology is also a lot of interesting. The impact on people, the ability to pull out information - somehow, and this question, how far we can get the materials, will touch. Volodya completely refused to speak on this topic. Well, maybe persuade somehow.

But from the point of view of the development of intelligence, memory, the ability to memorize, the analysis of anything supernatural did not come up. Just the development of these qualities, but according to the best, specially selected methods.

I once asked Vladimir about how his career was moving. He started with an ordinary operative worker. And at first I did not finish any educational institution. Just passed exams and tests. One of the tests will be in the next mailing list. The test to memorize and understand the material.

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

"... Actually, despite the revolutionary ardor and impulse, the Cheka still took the best from the tsarist secret services. And many methods have a rather ancient origin. But it also speaks in their favor - it has been tested by time.

By the way, I am very interested - 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 not try to do everything at once, try one thing, and then everything else will start to turn out, and the hunt will appear. It is important to just feel in yourself that even a little, but new opportunities begin to open up. And every success you need to notice and celebrate.

And today here are 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 remember all the items that you see. Then after twenty to thirty minutes, look at the items again. But before that, try to answer the question for yourself - what did I see? How many items? Then check. Exercise is enough to perform a couple of times a day. After a week or two, you can easily and without stress store all items. The most important thing is that you will see clear pictures and exactly reproduce what you see.

Exercise 7 . This is a very simple exercise, and, most importantly, very interesting. In any case, I really liked to do it. Choose a friend that you see almost every day. Or a relative. Suppose today just look at it carefully. And the next day try, what is called, to find differences. Hair style changes. Clothing. Gestures. Facial expression. At first, especially if it is a man, it will seem that nothing changes. Day after day the same costume, the same hairstyle. But gradually you will be able to celebrate the slightest change. It seems that yesterday the jacket pocket was sticking out, but today it is not.

Only in no case do it with tension and compulsively. Another thought that you are a little wrong.

Exercise 8 . In the evening, before going to bed, try to visualize all the people with whom you intersected during the day. Just remember how they looked. What a visual impression you got. Well, all at first, and not necessarily, but seven people try to remember.

You 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 are not just trying 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 give a command to memorize.

The analogy is so relative ... Especially the last thought. But still, I will say that simply wanting to train a visual memory, trying to remember something that people usually did not try to remember, gives excellent results. The brain is gradually becoming more fully operational. So, more and remembers.

Well, the main core we made up. Visual memory should improve. Exercise, the desire to remember leads to the fact that it becomes a habit. Gradually, of course. But skill is developed. A skill essentially means automatism. That is, without much effort, you will memorize much more. And do not forget about the attention, without it nothing will be ... "

Well, in the next newsletter, we will again summarize some results, summarize everything in brief. Simply designate all exercises with short sentences. So it will be much easier to navigate. In addition, you just make sure that a light reminder will allow you to remember the essence of the questions and the details. Well, the exam story.

And now the announcement.

Our Center for Intellectual Technologies conducts a reception at the correspondence course of development of memory and intelligence. The course is 14 brochures with audio applications. The program of the course largely coincides with the program of a similar course of one of the educational institutions of the Soviet KGB. What gives the program:

·          development of attention and concentration;

·          memory development as a function of the brain;

·          drawing up your own memorization system;

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

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

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

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

By e-mail constantly transmitted additions and a variety of new items. In addition, you can consult and ask questions. At the end of the course, you will receive a certain souvenir (let's say, very useful), which we prepare 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 the development of intelligence in the special services. Issue ten

Newsletter Secrets of the development of intelligence in the special services Issue 10. Conversation and examination story.

Hello!

First - a message that will go in all upcoming releases of all mailings. We receive a lot of letters asking us to send out previous releases of the newsletters. Of course, we do not refuse anyone, but, to be honest, this is a rather routine matter. Therefore, we immediately appeal to everyone - on our website www.shram.kiev.ua there is an ARCHIVAL 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 on the development of visual memory. No doubt, these are not all possible options, but you have received the main thing. The case, as they say for small - start and finish. Rather, even not to finish, but to 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 it will seem interesting to you. Actually, I will not bring questions, just give everything in the form of a story. You will understand, of course, what I asked.

“... Actually, I don’t really want to talk about myself. I graduated from a military school, and at the end I was offered to go to the KGB for work. I, by the way, friend agitated on this matter too. We were recruited for ordinary operational work. Of course, first of all we looked at the state of health. But also about the head also looked. That is, examined. I passed the exams, mate too. True, something was discovered with his eyesight, and therefore they offered to go to the technical department. He refused, almost no prospects, the maximum - the lieutenant colonel, and even then it is very long to wait. In addition, the books were read, the romance also fascinated us. Although who knows ... There, too, it turns out, it is interesting, only then you understand.

So, there were two admissions examinations on topics that you care about. The first - was instructed to walk along some route in the city for two hours. Next day, together with the instructor, I followed the same route and talked about the differences that you saw compared to yesterday. Of course, little things like a full or incomplete urn or something inconstant, like the number of people at the bus stop, were not asked. But here about the schedule of the store - easily. Or did the seller change at the Soyuzpechat kiosk.

By the way, I passed it well. Well, we were also warned that we need to show our attention and observation. That tried with might and main.

Then they gave for 10 minutes a sheet of paper with a story. Moreover, such a story, depicting the operational task. So, at first, they took a little frivolous, they say, we are playing spies. But we were warned that no toys, you can easily fall down. By the way, the younger guys did not need to be warned, they tried with might and main and so.

And then the story asked questions and the answer waited no more than five seconds. Slightly more - all, a penalty score.

(I asked Vladimir to compile such a story, he unexpectedly easily agreed. The story and questions will go at the very end of the mailing, under the signature, in order not to interrupt, so to speak, the narration).

In general, they took me to the operational work. Essentially I will not tell her, just do not think that this is surveillance or something like that. There are their own specialists, specially trained on each issue.

And without a break, as they say, from production, we were trained - shooting, physical training, general training, philosophy, political training ... Well, if we somehow more or less perceived the philosophy, especially since we were lucky with the teacher, then political training ... Overall, fiercely hated. The subject is not really so important, but the demand is worse than with the fire training, and the notes are obligatory. Now, thank God, there is no such thing.

Well, attention was paid to the development of memory. But so, we were not particularly bothered by this, to a minimum. When I entered the school, it was there that the political education was inferior to the classes for the development of all skills, including memory. I was offered to enter after two years of work in operational service. I agreed without hesitation, here both interest and perspective were viewed quite definitely. There, by the way, the exams were more difficult. The same walk through the city, the same story, only harder. And a lot of tests.

(Somehow talk Volodya and about this).

Well, and constantly engaged in all this. An episode in the film “The Shield and the Sword”, in which Johann Weiss remembers the list of camps for destruction on the 17th page, is not fiction. This is 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, this can be taught and applied elegantly), but in your own strength and in the fact that they can be greatly developed.

As for your course, in general, I spoke, well, everything, we were taught about this, if only I would add some moments of psychological preparation. It seems not directly to your topic, but in fact it is very useful.

(I immediately took “the bull by the horns” and we plotted a plan of several disks and manuals, but this would take about six months. Thoughts are interesting, but the 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 himself could see what and how.

(Well, not just comparing, oh, something, and just fussing about).

Yes, the main thing is not even the program ... If a person wants, everything will be. The main thing is that everything is in the hunt. Maybe at first through force, but then skills will begin to appear and then it will be difficult to stop. The most important thing is that the skills with you will remain, and worse you can’t do any 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 newsletter, he will tell you how he performed this task and why he did it perfectly, and a new story. Try again.

Our Center for Intellectual Technologies continues to receive the correspondence course of development of memory and intelligence. The course is 14 brochures with audio applications. The program of the course largely coincides with the program of a similar course of one of the educational institutions of the Soviet KGB. What gives the program:

·          development of attention and concentration;

·          memory development as a function of the brain;

·          drawing up your own memorization system;

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

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

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

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

By e-mail constantly transmitted additions and a variety of new items. In addition, you can consult and ask questions. At the end of the course, you will receive a certain souvenir (let's say, very useful), which we prepare 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 approximately twice the cost of the course. 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 - read carefully. The answer to the question with a pause of not more than five seconds. Naturally, you can only compare the answers later. Three readings of the text are allowed. To answer the questions I grow together after reading and in an hour or two after reading.

“... At 12-30, you need to meet a person near the bookstore number 7.

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

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

Take the package and take the 20th bus.

Get off at the fifth stop, cross the street and enter the second arch of the house opposite the stop.

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

The code on the door of the entrance - 790.

Rising to the fourth floor, apartment 113.

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

You open the door to a woman in a green coat.

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

She will invite you in. Stay there for 20 minutes.

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

You will get on the 15th trolley bus and will pass four stops. Get out of the payphone at the stop, call 229-51-85. Report that everything is done.

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

Go to the store "Soyuzpechat" and buy a notebook. Just say that you need a “medium-sized notebook with checked sheets, preferably small ones”.

After that, by 14-30 you will arrive at the place ”.

Questions:

one.       Apartment number where you need to go and transfer the package?

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

3       Bookstore number?

four.       Which bus should you take to the Soyuzpechat store?

five.       The code on the door of the entrance?

15.   What floor is the apartment on?

sixteen.   Is there an elevator in the house?

17   On which side is the stop from which 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 in an hour. We deliberately made it a little easier. The following will be more difficult.


Secrets of the development of intelligence in the special services. Issue eleven

Newsletter Secrets of the development of intelligence in the special services Issue 11. Method of memorization and new test story.

Hello!

First two messages:

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

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

And now directly to the topic ... There have been questions about the exam story, we answer everything at once.

one.       The test was very simple. Allowable number of errors - 1, and this does not apply to the phone number.

2       The test should have been completed in two stages - answering questions immediately after reading and in an hour. Ideally, it would be nice to answer questions every other day. Moreover, the number of errors should not increase.

3       It was this kind of test plan that was given at the entrance exam. But more difficult. This is what we are today at the end of the newsletter.

four.       The question of the presence of an elevator in the house required an answer “I don’t know,” rather than logical conclusions about the number of apartments, entrances, etc.

And now the word to Vladimir.

"... Honestly, even such a simple text cannot be memorized purely mechanically. It is clear that the excitement on the exam also hinders memorization. In general, simple cramming does little. Those who just tried to read the text many times in the allotted time questions answered very uncertainly.

Of course, when we were taught to memorization systems, we passed such tests effortlessly. And more difficult things turned. Here, for example, show 20 photos of people, call names and surnames. The display time for one photo is 15 seconds. Then show these photos in random order. Call people. One mistake lowers the score by a score. Neud - outfit or something else like that. In general, many tests had to be done.

To tell you the truth, I was interested in the development of memory from school. I bought books. But to be honest, not really studied a single one. The only true, I read. Probably, because it was thin, in the "Library" series "Knowledge" came out. For others, there was a lack of systematic engagement.

And in this little book, no exercise, just a story about memory and tips. Here I also used them. Tips, in general, unpretentious, but effective.

In short, I read the text only three times. The first time I read and imagined everything. Consistently all the actions, like in the movies. He dialed phone numbers, even twisted an imaginary disk with his fingers. Figures remembered by consonance. I am ashamed to say obscene. I will not bring them, it is possible to pick up more decent consonances. For example, 7-2 - "very barely." Or 2-5 - "words to drive." About the consonance, by the way, I read in that little book.

In fact, there are a lot of memorization techniques. But I had enough of this baggage too. And most importantly, I read and represented. If the house with the arch and the fifth entrance to the right, then I represented the familiar house with the arch and went to the right. If I am going in trolley bus number 15, then I imagined the fifteenth route in my city. If there was no such route, I thought of it.

And it is very important not to rush. The picture in the head should not be fragmentary, but coherent, consistent. That is, presented one episode - link it with the previous one so that there is a single chain. He stopped - presented the whole picture again, so that it turned out to be whole.

The second time I read, I didn’t just read. I first remembered the paintings. And only if the picture turned out fuzzy and it was impossible to make it clear, I looked in the text. But only when nothing really worked out. Because the attempt to recall gives much more than just reading the text again.

Well, the third time I just remembered and almost did not look at the text. Is that for self-test.

Method, one might say, did not let down. When I first answered questions, answered everything. The second survey was in about an hour. Moreover, the ability to write a story and repeat was not. In this case, it is simply best to repeat it again in about fifteen minutes, not mechanically, but presenting it. Then after half an hour. Then before the survey. By the way, the intermediate repetition in half an hour was not at all mandatory. Rather, for confidence and calm. The most important repetition is 10-15 minutes after the first survey.

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

I will pay tribute 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 saw 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 palmist or astrologer is, he somehow changed his mind. This is not your horoscopes scribbling in newspapers ...

Well, now the second test. Already truly. (It should be noted that Vladimir, of course, did not write anything. I simply dictated me to the recorder, writing on the go. I took it all off, printed it out, then called him. I asked questions. Not a single mistake.)

Maybe what I told is useful. Only here is the thing that imagining pictures is not such a common thing. It's one thing when you read and do not strain, the imagination will still work at least somehow. Another thing is to consciously load yourself with the creation of paintings.

Read many times much more familiar. Therefore, it seems that it is easier. In fact, much harder to remember ... "

Test and questions we give at the end of the mailing. In the next issue we will continue the story about the exercises that Vladimir recommends to perform for the development of memory and intelligence.

We continue to recruit for the Correspondence Course in the Development of Memory and Intelligence. The course consists of 14 brochures-manuals with audio applications. The course provides:

·          Memorizing on-the-fly texts, formulas, dates, telephones and other complex information;

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

·          Mastering the techniques of concentration, speed reading;

·          The development of photographic memory and logic;

·          Feeling of confidence in yourself and your strengths.

E-mails regularly send supplements and applications that stimulate the process of mastering the system, contain interesting information, new intellectual development systems.

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

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

And now the test story.

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

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

From a payphone call 519-24-36 and let us know that you have arrived.

At 11-00, a Volga car with a state number 19-54 will arrive.

The driver, dressed in a brown jacket, will be driving. Show him the ID.

By car, you will reach the house number 73 on Morskaya Street.

You will enter at the entrance №3, you will rise 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 №23. From there, call 219-19-45 and let them know that everything is transferred.

After 10 minutes, go down, you will be waiting for the car brand "Moskvich" with the number 63-65.

On it you will go to Varshavskaya street to the store number 17 "Household goods". You will pass through the office space to the service exit and turn left.

You will reach the administrative building, you will enter into the office №8 and you will transfer product №57.

Another way back to the car and then pass on Popov Street to the house number 24. You enter the basement room in the sixth entrance and ask Valery Vladimirovich.

He will present you a certificate in the name of Alexander Velichko and hand you a green folder tied up with black braid.

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

After that, return to the place. "

This test is more difficult. Questions:

one.       What is the Volga driver dressed in?

2       Where to get the products?

3       How many need to get product number 23?

four.       Where should you be at 10-50?

five.       What will Alexander Velichko give you?

GOOD LUCK!


Secrets of the development of intelligence in the special services. Issue 12

Newsletter Secrets of the development of intelligence in the special services Issue 12. Answers to letters and begin a new cycle of exercises.

Hello!

We received a lot of letters with stories about how the second test went. We are pleased to note that many wrote that Vladimir's simple tips helped them to answer questions well.

There are questions of this kind - on what system it is necessary to perform the eight exercises, how much time to do each, etc. Below we give Vladimir answers to these questions.

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

Remember how our scout Johann Weiss was quickly shown the list of camps for extermination, he remembered it, and then he reproduced it from the resident? The impression was that he simply took pictures of the pages, and then simply read the information.

The book describes a little more precisely. Weiss came out 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 applied some sort of memorization system.

But a word to Vladimir.

"... As to how to do the exercises ... In general, it’s stupid to lean on everything at once. You can start from one of them, and from any of them. Felt success, progress - you can move on to the next. It’s important not to overdo it so Hunting. And then a couple of days someone will work out, and then gradually the whole thing will be abandoned.

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

About Weiss. I have not seen such phenomena that photograph the text, as it were. By the way, Weiss was obliged to have a mini-camera with him. During the war, there were already such. Well, not modern minolts, which can be hidden in a pen, but still compact.

But what's the plot you can not do. So, Weiss did not photograph the text, but just quickly read it, singled out the main, say, only the names of the settlements and remembered them.

The man is not a set of photographs and audio cassettes. Not a camera or tape recorder. Remember - yes. Mechanically taking a picture is not. If somewhere they write about such phenomena, then, most likely, this is an exaggeration.

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

We watched a lot of ANENERBO materials. During the Second World War, Hitler created such a laboratory, which was supposed to reveal all kinds of secrets. Including expeditions to Tibet were undertaken. So, in the reports nothing about the phenomena of "photography" is not. But a lot about the development of memory and the brain.

By the way, it is now fashionable to read a certain Lobsang Ramp, supposedly a Tibetan monk. More than ten books already. So, this is just the 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 rewrote.

So less fantasies, more reality. Although the dream does not interfere.

I would do that in the place of Weiss. I looked through the village, looked at which system is better to memorize, and began. Then it’s really out into the street and within 15-20 minutes it’s really a little to unload the memory - and repeat, and make notes. In general, as described in the book.

By the way, you can include such an exercise in the simulator, even call it "Johan Weiss". First, a person learns the memorization system, and then this kind of text is shown to him. And these pieces help to the first time and the results were good, and confidence appeared, and the skill developed. That is, the levels can be made.

Well, it is necessary to go further. With a visual memory like a little sorted out. It's time for the other to take. For auditory memory.

We are accustomed to the fact that the main perception of information in most cases, and the overwhelming one, is carried out by sight, visual memory and perception. Meanwhile, auditory perception plays an equally important role. Although, of course, there is a huge difference between visual and auditory perception.

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

A good example is jokes. Think about yourself how much better you memorize the story than the anecdote read in the magazine.

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

Auditory memory is more durable. You can make experiments, but in general it has been proven that after a long separation, people recognize each other first by voice.

And, say, a mechanic who is hearing the smallest nuances of the engine? Or Kisa Vorobyaninov, who heard the voice of Elena Stanislavovna Bour behind the door and instantly recognized him?

Here is another argument. From antiquity came to us huge epos, treatises. They were transmitted from generation to generation verbally, so to speak. 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 out loud helps when memorizing the read texts and capturing in memory the meanings of words and texts. By the way, tests from previous mailings with reading them out loud are remembered much easier and more accurately.

The ear is much thinner, more susceptible and more sensitive than the eye, as if paradoxical as it may sound.

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

In the next issue, we will present a system of exercises for the development of auditory memory. In the meantime, digest the information received, prepare for new interesting exercises.

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

As for the timing of the recording, we will not say anything either. We just prepared 100 sets. 58 has already gone, so 42 is left. And we will most likely be preparing the next batch somewhere in a year. Maybe a little earlier - time will tell.

Today we will not peg you with advertising course. Just send your applications to pobeda@anitex.by and mozart@anitex.by .

Good luck!


Secrets of the development of intelligence in the special services. Issue 13

Newsletter Secrets of the development of intelligence in the special services Issue 13. We will develop to develop auditory memory and observation.

Hello!

We continue the description of the system of exercises for the development of intelligence in the special services. Recall that this is a cycle of conversations with the colonel of the special services, who have gone 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 paid attention to the state of memory in Vladimir (that is his name), the accuracy of the analysis and a lot 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 profile and good health. And he passed the test for the state of memory at reception easily. And the test was fairly simple, as you have already seen. Mailing releases are just filmed tape recordings of conversations with Vladimir. And the fact that sending out is not so often is connected with the fact that it is rather laborious to remove text from a recording. But a word to Vladimir. By the way, parallel to the answer to letters and questions.

"... Here, for some reason, many came to the defense of Lobsang Rampa. (Recall that in one of the previous issues it was said that this was not a Tibetan monk, but only a radio operator of the German expedition ANENERBO).

Well what can I say? It is not necessary to raise any secret materials, sometimes it is sufficient to work skillfully with open sources. Read a lot. But not just to read out of curiosity, but to strung together and link fresh and old facts with one another.

Something like the Sutyagin case. A person in the newspaper statistics can tell more than a bunch of materials classified as "Secret." Let's sort out an example of handling open sources.

The same with this Rampa. The analysis of the text, the geography of the narratives clearly indicates that the European, who had been in the East for a long time, wrote ... But now this is not the point.

(A small digression. In Vladimir, I never noticed a predilection for religion or the occult. Nevertheless, I have a curious episode connected with it. I somehow acquainted him with one connoisseur of Tibet, very skillfully posing as a student of one of the Tibetan gurus. And one of the main arguments he had among other things was the recording of the mantra OM made by him. Everything was done according to the canons, it seemed to be impressive ...

Three minutes later, Vladimir figured out that he was an erudite swindler and swindler, who also worked in the field of healing. He simply did not want to file a case for 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 any extraordinary person (and all these pseudo-gurus are quite extraordinary), you can seek advice.

Vladimir, by the way, figured out deception by ear ... By the way, a good excuse to go straight to the topic of mailing.)

We continue on the development of auditory memory and observation. Sometimes something to hear is worth a lot. And the ability to catch the subtlest shades of a person’s voice can provide such information that you would not otherwise receive. Most importantly, it develops quite easily.

Let's start with a simple exercise . So, if you are traveling by public transport, just try to listen, grab for a few minutes a passage of the conversation of passengers. After a while you will start to hear a lot. Keep it in memory. Catch the nuances.

Purely practical benefits in this little. You never know what they say in the trolley bus. And I do not urge anyone to engage in eavesdropping and fishing out other people's secrets.

Just honestly tell yourself that you usually listened only if you are interested in something. And here it is just a habit of not only listening, but also hearing.

The following exercise . Learn the voices. In a new way, listen to your friends. Pay attention to the characteristic features of their voices, timbre moments, accents, characteristic revolutions, etc. In the past, when communicating, you only followed the meaning, now learn to follow the voice. Learn the types of voices. Learn the types of dialects. Match the voice with the spiritual image of a person.

For example, it is only by vote that I can figure out for whom he voted in the election, so that he would not speak later.

The most vivid example of the discrepancy between the voice and what is being said by this voice is Zhirinovsky. In speeches a lot of things, and the voice of the lumpen, a liar, boor and scandal. The word does not hold. Extremely selfish. It is greedy. Erudite superficially. Arrogant unusually on the type of "from the mud - to riches". Vindictive, vindictive. A lot of complexes that can be overcome only through the humiliation of others, not even through money. You can lie, the voice will not deceive.

However, everyone already knows everything about Zhirinovsky ... Nothing new has been discovered. But I will define his voter by his voice, as if he, say, did not express himself pompously, if he could do it.

By the way, many politicians take a voice. In the sense of not a sip, but a voice. A bunch of examples where the election results determined the votes.

So listen, catch the melody of the voice.

You may be disappointed that such non-specific methods. In fact, they are very rich. You just start listening.

Exercise the third . Again, it is being done in public places. Having listened to someone's voice, but, without seeing the speaker at once, draw yourself a mental portrait of him. Then quietly compare it with the original. Just compare.

Over time, the skill will come by voice to accurately determine the appearance of a person. It can be argued that there are many known cases when a very beautiful voice belonged, let's say, to a not very beautiful person. But this is a superficial judgment. Subtle nuances can all say. But they need to learn to catch.

(Again, a digression. Vladimir is not a good expert on our variety art. But I showed him photos and recordings of several singers and singers about whom it was known that someone else sings for them. Not a single mistake.)

Fourth exercise . Turn on a well-known song. In the middle of the song, turn off the sound, but continue to perform it mentally. After about a minute, turn on the sound. The task is to get into place.

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

Let's pause. Because the following exercises will be a little more difficult. Or even no more difficult. Rather, more specifically. Although this is all relative ...

We continue admission to the Course of the Development of Memory and Intelligence. We have already written a lot about it, so we’ll not describe it once again. Just pay attention to:

·          currently out of 100 prepared sets, 31 sets remain, and we don’t yet know when we will prepare the next batch;

·          Moreover, the development of the next course under the conditional name "Sherlock Holmes", the essence of which we will tell. We can only say that it includes a lot of interesting and useful things. True, no mysticism and magic, but magical results. At least a few testers on whom it is tested, have already felt it. To our joy. By the way, they all took the course to start.

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

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

Good luck!
