As much as I rely on technology, and love it, there is still nothing like a pen and paper (no, I do not write with a pencil unless it is 100% necessary!) Whether I am planning, making lists, or taking notes, I use a pen and paper and I actually remember things a good bit- as long as I write it down.
One of the reasons I have never strayed is when I was in high school, I retained information better if I copied my notes each night. I would color code them and thinking about it and writing them made studying for a test much easier.
I now see that other people are much like me- this infographic explains a lot.
