Some people suffer from prosopagnosia - or face blindness - which affects about 2% of the population.

Prosopagnosiacs can't identify people from their faces. They will carefully scan faces for details like moles, skew teeth and monobrows. When they view a face from an odd angle, they might as well look at a new face. The rest of us process faces so quickly that we have stopped noticing them.

Communication

  • During the confrontation, refrain from attacking the other person's character and keep the focus on your feelings. Confrontation shouldn't be a competition between who's right and wrong.
  • Express what you think and how you feel in a respectful manner. Remember that if you were being accused of something, it doesn't feel good either.
  • Take responsibility for what you have done wrong or could have done better in the situation and work together towards a mutually beneficial solution.

Fake emotions displayed mainly on the surface for the sake of the job profile are termed as surface acting.

It is the Mcdonalds checkout guy who gives a polite smile because he is told to or the CEO who has to hide his imposter syndrome or the bouncer at a concert who has to scowl and appear menacing even though he too is enjoying the show.

Surface acting is degrading to our well-being as it is a disconnect from our true nature and leads to exhaustion and self-estrangement.
