Dear friends,

Has anybody come across any book or any video teach in where the order of the colors are memorized by giving numerical values to each color.

In the world of electronics, resistors have colored bands that indicate the value:

Black 0
Brown 1
Red 2
Orange 3
Yellow 4
Green 5
Blue 6
Violet 7
Gray 8
White 9

The traditional mnemonic device to remember this sequence is the sentence "Bad Boys Rape Our Young Girls But Violet Gives Willingly."

The colors from red to violet are in the same order as a rainbow.

I haven't seen any numerical approaches to color.

The most useful color memory system I've seen translates color into objects commonly featuring that color, such as grass for green, oranges or orange, apples for red, and so on.

If numbers are important, I'd say go with the resistor color code mentioned above.

Does it have to involve numbers? Why don't you just come up with your own mnemonic code, I've done this with all "cubes" I own such as using a simple rhyme to the color or using a visual cue. It might help if we knew more on what your trying to do with the method.

Dear Jamie

I need a system for memorising colors not with particularly numbers.

Awaiting to hear more from you

It depends on how many different colours are in the sequence. Are you looking to memorise 100 colour sequence made up if 4 colours or something like that?

Regards,

Ditto on the electronics code. All digits, zero through nine, with silver and gold as multipliers. My mnemonic was "Better Be Right Or Your Great Big Venture Goes West".

Once the colors are linked to the numbers, just use Harry Lorayne's system for memorizing numbers by building words.

If you don't want to use numbers, use regular rhyming words to rename the colors. Green Red Blue Pink Brown could become "Clean bed to think down".
...what if I could read your mind?
