Genetic Or Learned

Ronnie uses the Mind Palace Technique to memorize. This technique can be learned by anyone. It is the practice of associating places in your brain with whatever is needed to be memorized. It’s the process of storing information in specific rooms based on mental imagery, in order to go back to those spaces in your brain to retrieve the data you want to remember. Ronnie claims to have practiced this technique which enables him to memorize large amounts of information.
