The Feynman learning technique

The Feynman learning technique is not a mental model but a way to approach a subject to learn it faster and better.

  • Pretend you're teaching a concept to a child. Write down in simple terms everything you know about the subject.
  • Identify the gaps. Go over what you've written down and see how you can improve it. What's missing or unclear.
  • Organise and simplify. Create a better way to explain the concept.
  • Transmit. Communicate your idea to someone to get feedback.
