4. Repeat and connect names

"Remembering a name is like a pop quiz for your brain," says Green. The first time you hear the name, you have only seconds to file it away, but if you miss your chance -- poof! -- it's gone. To pass the test, first get the name into your brain by repeating it aloud. ("Nice to meet you, Frank.") Then, to retain the name, make a connection in your mind with something you're familiar with. Think: "That's my cousin's name." Or, "This guy loves hot dogs."
