Remembering Faces

Remembering Faces

Forgetting the face of someone we have met once seems normal compared to being able to remember the face of someone after years.

  • A Super-Recognizer is a person with a gift of remembering a face for a long time, often infinitely. These kinds of people were discovered in 2009, and make up about 2 percent of the population.
  • On the other end of the spectrum are the prosopagnosics (people with face blindness) who cannot recognize even familiar faces like their own face.

The Hidden Superpower: Face Recognition

Many people may not be super-recognizers but just have a better memory, according to many tests.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
