Spanish writer, hypnotherapist and mnemorizer specializing in storage and quick read. He has numerous world records of memorization and he is probably the fastest memorizer in history. He is a member of the international organization Mensa and has an IQ 194.

Some of its milestones are for example: get a 40-digit binary number memorized in just one second, memorize the position of each word in a list of 23,200 words dictated for 72 hours with listening only once (correcting the position of 498 words and failing 2) or be able to read at speeds of 2500 words per minute. In his book Develop a prodigious mind, he explains several techniques that he uses, known and highly effective visual mnemonic methods.

For years, he has taught courses on study techniques, memorization and ultra-fast reading, a job he combines with his passion for athletics , chess and table games.

In 2017, due to a disease known as alopecia areata universal, Ramón Campayo lost almost all his hair. This autoimmune disease is a more extensive variation of alopecia areata, in which the same organism produces antibodies against a part of the hair follicle causing hair loss.
