The Romero Method is a school of thought on buzzing strategy which advocates that players buzz on a word or phrase that triggers his or her memory then take all five seconds to consider why they buzzed. This strategy is also associated with Nathan Freeburg, but, unlike Romero, he rarely succeeds. This strategy is notably useless when playing in NAQT tournaments due to the format's shorter answer time.
Practitioner Susan Ferrari will usually begin the process of recall that distinguishes the Romero Method by stating that her buzz "was probably a bad idea". This invariably results in a correct answer being given.
