Doodle To Remember With Sharpie

Doodling helps memory

Everyone has doodled at some point in their lives, whether it was during a lesson, in a meeting or on a phone call at work. People often view doodling as a distraction or a sign that someone is bored and not paying attention.

But in reality, doodling has been proven to have the exact opposite effect. People who doodle are in fact more likely to remember information than those who do not doodle. A study in the Applied Cognitive Psychology Journal saw psychologist Jackie Andrade look further into this.

In this study, 40 participants were separated into two groups of 20. The whole study has finished a psychological experiment that was not related before they were asked to remain to help with further research. They were then led into a room and asked to listen to a two and a half minute long tape that was not interesting.

One half of the participants were then asked to colour in some shapes on a piece of paper while they listened, the other half did not doodle at all. Afterwards, they were all asked to recall information from the call. Those who doodled recalled 7.5 pieces of information out of a total of 16 on average compared to only 5.8 recalled by the non-doodlers.
