    Maybe it's an N issue?

    You gals are so mean. That is so low, making fun of the disabled.

    Would it surprise you that I happened to be in a wheelchair, wearing a pirate patch that I lost both eye in legS in a very patriotic pirate battle AND was a dumb obnoxious brat when I was a kid?

    What was the name of that very famous pirate battle...?

    It's definately an N thing. Sensors remember names and Intuitives remember faces. I once called a guy who played the guitar 'the guitar dude' because I forgot his name.

    He said: Yo! Remember me?
    I said: ...Yea! ummm.. your the guitar dude
    Awkward silence

    Worst part was he remembered my name

    I'd say so. N memory focuses on patterns and connections, S memory on details (boring!).

    Last night, I got this girl's phone number. As I was entering it into my phone, I asked her, "Did I spell your name right?"
    She replied, "You spell it L-a-y-l-a."
    I had typed Leslie.

    To be fair, there was rather loud music playing a few yards away from us.
    She didn't seem to mind I'd messed up, though. I think she was an ENTP, possibly J.

    Close enough. Just ask her if she likes leslie more, maybe it could be a cute nickname? XD

    Turn it into a full blown inside joke.

    Referance it as often as possible, always call her Leslie when around other people, and when people get confused, have her go along with it asking them why they thought something was wrong. ^^

    Confusion of others for amusing to yeurselves = win.

    PURE WIN.

    I think yeah, this is definitely a common N thing.

    trouble is, I remember everything about the person that I learned on our previous encounter(s) - what they said and who they are... because those are the things I was concentrating on, as ever the abstract. When they or someone else said their name, I wasn't listening half the time, because I was automatically honing in on the abstract aspects.

    It's exactly the same with me, I can usually remember what somebody told me and their face but not their name, that occasionally leads to some embarrassment...
