Good With Names - Bad With Faces
I'm just wondering if other name enthusiasts maybe became name enthusiasts because they have this problem.
I know most of the population has at some point described themselves as "good with faces, bad with names" and often recognize people but are unable to remember their name.
I am the complete opposite of this. I can have someone I have met before recognize me and I will not recognize them/remember them until they tell me their name - then I can instantly place them. My boyfriend and I have had this exact conversation so many times: "Oh, I know her." "I don't" "Yes you do, that's Jack's wife... what's her name?" "Jack's wife's name is Mary"
Basically as long as there's context, I will never forget a name - but if I have to rely on the face alone, I sometimes have trouble placing people.
Anyone else have this problem?
