Question Immediate Action Items from memory

The CRJ-200 Immediate Action Items for Stabilizer Trim Runaway requires the flight crew to pull two circuit breakers without reference to the Check List...apparently the FAA thinks these are "memory items" and should be done without following the step-by-step list provided in the Quick Reference Handbook.
1.) if you fly the CRJ-200 is this required by your airline?
2.) if you fly an aircraft (besided the CRJ-200) that has "immediate actions" do any of that involve pulling a Circuit Breaker from MEMORY? If so, what aircraft and what is it for?
I understand how important it is to stop the runaway, however I am concerned that requiring a crew to pull a circuit breaker from memory is not safe.
Thank you for your time.
