    Same. Also, body language.

    Ha, yes. And the asking thing, too (what Teslashock said). But if I'm unattentive anyway, why should I care?

    If their names are important to remember, then no.
    Unless the person has left a memorable impression, things like names seem to not get filed away in memory.

    Yes, I'm terrible with names, but I remember faces. I particularly find it vexing when it's someone who I think is nice, or I say "hi" to on a daily basis, cuz then I feel guilty for not knowing their name!

    I've had people get mad at me for it, like co-workers and such.

    Haha not just names, you'll be lucky if I remember your face too.

    Is it important to fix this? OR are you just soliciting a group hug?

    I will remember a face forever, but a name with said face... Not so well.

    I have a hard time remembering names because most of the time I really don't care what the person's name is and am barely paying attention when they tell me. I am usually too busy making an assessment of their wardrobe, or thinking about everything else I could be doing at that moment. I fear that might qualify me as being a jerk, but whatever...lol. I do make a concentrated effort to remember a name though if it is important, such as in a work situation.

    I should win an award for forgetting names.
    Someone can introduce themselves and I forget their name in minutes.
    It's actually embarrassing since no one forgets my name.

    "Great meeting you, Jag!"
    "You too." (Whatever your name is. Hell if I know.)

    But I never forget a face.
