In comparison with the stickied thread here, this poll is to get an idea where the various methods of memory are in popularity. This is important or at least interesting so that we can see which methods have been utilized to their fullest extent, and which types of memory could be the next hidden jewel. While most techniques are probably nearly just as good as one another, this thread will also provide a discussion for the methods' effectiveness, explain what they mean to newcomers, and just raise awareness of BLD in general.

If you use a hybrid of methods for most of your cubes, or you are just starting to learn another method, then select two. But if you have abandoned a method of memory for a cube, then don't select it. This poll only applies to 3x3 BLD, multi-BLD and speed 3x3 BLD.

I am bad at remembering numbers and letters so I just tap the pieces and learn the pieces and where they should go kineticly.

I'm one of the silly people who use visual memo for 5x5.
I'm actually interested in this. I've gone up to 4x4 with visual, but have been having trouble doing the 5x5. What sort of times / success rates do you get with 5x5 visual?

It made me laugh, I couldn't resist :)

My success rate is not that great, but it's about as much due to execution mistakes as memory lapses. I'd give you numbers but I haven't practiced enough to measure any statistics. A couple of months ago I put some practice into it and got my time down to 20-30 minutes.
