Some people cannot recognize people’s faces. It’s a medical condition which always has you meeting “new people.”
Go here to take a test against a Super Recognizer. I did well.

I rarely watch 60 minutes but happen to catch it this past Sunday. the story was interesting, I did find the one statistic quoted of ” as many as 1 in 50 people have it” a bit of a stretch. The part about not recognizing upsidedown faces was very interesting. They made no mention of voice, you wuold think that folks that may forget a face would concentrate on remembering voices to make up for it.
there are people that i have remet and it is the voice that jogs my memory.
As far as super recognizer that would be a very strange talent to have.
Heh. All progs looks alike to me.
Obama must suffer from the same syndrome being he can’t seem to recognize the people he represents….americans!
Years ago when visiting with a friend in Japan who was married to a Japanese lady, his wife told me that it’s a good thing we “round eyes” had different colors of hair or she would never be able to tell us apart.
I got two right. Most of the ones I couldn’t recognize were people I’ve never heard of in the first place. I don’t have a medical condition. I just don’t pay attention to “celebrities”. If I want to see some morons, I’ll just go up to Chicago and walk around.
@Doc… I kind of like the “round eyes” description, because it’s so inclusive for white people. I would try to return the courtesy, but I can’t keep things straight. Are Japanese slants or slopes? I would hate to use the wrong term and commit some sort of faux pas.
Odouchebag must have bow blindness….
