    Can Somebody Tell Me If I Have Prosopagnosia?

    It takes me a couple times of meeting somebody to be able to recognize their faces. After that, I can recognize them in person, and can describe basic features, but cannot recall how their face actually looks without seeing it. If I try to pull up a mental picture of what a face...
