    I can remember faces and where and when I met someone in great detail but when it comes to names, I draw a blank. It's like when they introduce themselves, the Charlie Brown teacher takes over the conversation for a split second.

    Why exactly do you absolutely NOT have prosopagnosia?

    It is perhaps the (general) absence of facial hair that makes it difficult for you to remember girls' faces?

    I have to make a very conscious effort to enter people's faces into memory. For names I use those silly mnemonic tricks you hear and/or read about.

    I'm much the same; sometimes names slip by me, especially when making first acquaintance.

    Faces, on the other hand, are weirdly indelible in my mind. In person, I can recognize someone years later -- even if I only knew them as a child. Sometimes the deeper instances of perspicacity take time, or even reference, to sort out; the initial sensation is similar to déjà vu.

    I have to see someone many times before I remember their face. I confuse siblings a lot too, until I learn the small things that make them different. I don't remember names unless the person stands out to me, and I don't remember faces unless they have unique features. I see people around that I think I know but I'm not sure, so I pretend I didn't see them and figure they'll come up to me if they notice... and I don't use names very often, just in case I get them wrong.

    After I construct an image of them in my mind though they're locked in, I'll remember them for a long time.

    I don't even really notice what faces really look like until owner of aforementioned face, says something interesting or insightful. It's like people can't become part of my physical world, until I register them in my mind.

    It has nothing to do with IQ.

    I recently heard about a condition known as faceblindness. check out

    Prosopagnosia Research Centers at Harvard University and University College London

    there's a test on there to test whether you have it.


    I'm not great at it, but not so much that it is detrimental to me.


    oh someone already posted this...lol
