    My biggest problem is initially upon meeting people. If someone says their name and then jumps into conversation, I have already forgotten it. Gets awkward later on in the conversation. I think my worst record though was sitting next to this guy in my freshman biology course. I sat next to him everyday and by midterm break I went home and my family asked me who my new friends were. I was like, "well, I sit next to this guy in biology everyday..." I never took the time to learn his name. Not that he probably didn't say it, but I never remembered. Still can't remember and I sat next to him for the whole year, but I do remember his face.

    I think I could remember better if I made a point of it, but I never do.

    I still have trouble remembering the names of people I've known since I was 3.

    Though, if I take a particular interest in you, I'll never forget your name.

    I'm an INFP and my name memory is atrocious. Sadly, the only way I can memorize a person's name is by making a mnemonic device for it, or by seeing it written on a sheet of paper.

    The other day I met a girl named Kelsie, so I made the phrase "Kelsie can't kick kittens". It's quite effective, but never tell anyone about the mnemonics that you give them. They'll think you're a loon.
