Facial Recognition: Does the name escape you?

Ms. N Ms. N
When you run into someone, or see a particular actor/actress on TV or in a movie, are you usually able to put a name with the face? Do you struggle instead to figure out who the person is? Can you remember seeing the person before, perhaps even the circumstances under which you have seen them, without recalling their name?

I'm pretty good at naming people. I probably get it right at least 98% of the time.

The only things I'm good at remembering are landmarks and pointless facts no one should know, lol.

OTHER--I have lost a lot of my memory due to an accident. I do not recognize some people but know the name, or recognize the face and do not know why or do not get either one. It varies. It also sucks--when you see an old friend and do not know them at all. I used to know faces names and other miniscule details about almost everyone. Not anymore!

I am great with faces and crap with names or sometimes even how I know them... I am sure it makes me seem really mean sometimes.

When meeting someone new, I let them know right off the bat that I'll probably forget their name because I'm bad with names, but I ALWAYS recognize someone I've seen before, even once. Half of my really close friends have nicknames that I gave them because it was easier to remember than their actual name, and they tend to use the nickname outside of just our friendship lol

Sometimes it's easy to remember the name that goes with the face but other times it just slips my mind.

Well, it may with television/movie people, but not necessarily the person who used to live in the same apartment complex six years ago whom you happen to run into in line at the theater...

I have very bad short term memory. It takes me a good 10-15 times meeting someone before I'll remember who the heck they are. If they're super interesting maybe less. I run into people all the time who know me and I haven't the faintest idea who they are. Not by face or name. My memory is just sucky.

I think it also depends on the person. If its someone I've seen a lot or I admire then then its instant.
