Ep 195: How To Memorize Piaget’s Stages of Cognitive Development

MichaelCognition, Intelligence and Language, Development15 Comments

Do you need to memorize Piaget’s stages for a test? You’ve found what you’re looking for. I’ll use some familiar mnemonics (“1 is a bun”, etc.) and some wacky images to get those stages – and what happens during them – into your mind. You’ll be able to remember when object permanence occurs, when children are capable of assimilation and accommodation, abstract and logical thinking, conservation of energy – it’s all here. Take the time to watch this video, learn about mnemonics and memorize Piaget’s stages of cognitive development once and for all!

  1. This has been so helpful, do you have other videos about Erickson and other Psychology basic memory, etc, THANK YOU GREAT VIDEOS, well done!

  2. Thanks so much for the videos! I’m studying for my clinical social work license and trying to remember all the things I forgot from school. I am unable to download the PDF file. There is a little document icon next to the episode number but it is not clickable. I haven’t been able to download files from any of the other pages. Am I missing something? If I download the app, will I be able to print the images?
    Thanks
    Robin

  3. Thank you for all you do for this. I am a long time listener and now a doctoral student in Clinical Psychology. I still use this website to refresh my memory.

    Thank you!

  4. Thank you so much. That’s great to hear that these mnemonics are useful from Intro Psych students to grads. Thanks for taking the time to leave your comment.

  5. Ok….I’m sorry but it’s my turn to give you some advice now and I’m apologizing in advice.

    Your videos are useful but you seriously really need to get to the point. 22 minutes for 4 stages?!? The is the same exact video with the same mnemonics on YouTube and finishes is 5minutes. You’re making a lot of useless comments, trying to be funny?! You’re repeating yourself. Not only that but you’re making statements that are common sense to us. People who are watching this are obviously students who are already knowledgeable of 95% of the stuff you’re talking about because they’re already in the field. Hence….they’re here for mnemonics because of a test?? Not to hear you review what is a
    preoperational stage. We know what that is already. Stop telling us that “two is a shoe.” And there’s also no need to go back and review “one is door, two is a door,….” and nor do you need to read out the questions. We see it.

  6. You’re right. In fact, last year when I was creating the Psych Mnemonics app I looked at this video again and thought the exact same thing: it’s too long. I guess when I recorded it quite a few years ago I was thinking that I wanted to carefully show the steps in this mnemonic technique to encourage students to use it to memorize other areas of psychology. But if you’re looking for a quick way to memorize Piaget’s stages, this isn’t it. The video does receive many positive comments as well, so I do hope that while it’s not short, the mnemonics at least stay with people for a long time. But, good point. In the Psych Mnemonics mobile app I created a new and much shorter version of the video.

  7. Thanks for this video and thank for taking your time and explaining it in full with each and every step. Really helped me follow and I have no exposure to Mnemonics before so this showed me the process. Helped me understand Piagets stages that I have spent loads of time on before and struggled to remember.

  8. Michael, I like the original video better than the one on the app I purchased. I still need the PDF to help me remember and I can’t find it anywhere. How do I get a copy of the 4 images. (2 ants on a motorcycle with buns for wheels; preacher with funny shoes, rabbit in the hat, smokey the bear and the ass all with shoes; concrete tree with logs, and commode; and the 4 men with great abs. Please send me a copy or post these photos online so I can make flash cards.

    Also See Piaget Creep Forward (from Amanda, above) is something I can remember. It would be great to have a photo of that as well. I can’t draw or I’d attempt that.
