I Never Forget a Face

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 92 People

    Hey! I Know You! You're... Umm...

    I am horrible with names! But I never forget a face! Even when they age or hairstyles change. I can recognize a person, even within a crowd. But, I do struggle to identify their names, most of the time! Even celebrities in movies! :-o So, I often do the rude thing...

    I Know You!

    I never forget a face. I think there is something beautiful about everyone's face. It shows so much, like a map of your life. I am an avid people watcher. I especially enjoy watching large family groups. This is often in a restaurant, a park, or an airport. I study...

    And That Includes Avatars!

    I don't have that much of a memory, I am really bad with words and numbers, but my visual memory is pretty good, specially when it has a character to match that face. I don't forget people I've met easily, that includes people I met here. Just wanted to share!

    Not So Good With Names...

    But I NEVER forget a face. It's actually kinda weird just how well i can remember faces. I realised this while I was working at McDonalds in the CBD. I saw hundreds of people every day, yet i would ALWAYS remember the face of a customer even after...

    I Always Remember...

    I remember faces so well, that I hate it at times. I always recognize people who have no idea who I am. Makes things weird at times, since I usually don't remember much else about the person other then their face and eyes. All I have to do is look at a persons face one time...

    I usually forget the name but never the face. I guess I'm just a visual person.

    Forget

    I rarely don't remember someone.  A face is mostly always recognizable.  On the other hand, names are harder to recall.

    Excuse Me, Have I Seen You Somewhere Before?

    Well I'm many things of which just a fragment is to be found here or perhaps in other places but one thing about me is ...I don't forget faces easily even if I'm terrible with names. I figure that has something to do with how my memory works. That's to say I have a photographic...

    I Know You!

    I have never forgotten a face no matter how long it's been. My mother is always amazed when we see people from way back (like pre-school) and I can tell her their name and where I know them from. It's always a good feeling to see people I know and then when they remember me...
