Out of 30 faces, you correctly identified 7.
You were familiar with 20 of the people in this test.

If we exclude the ones you were unfamiliar with, you got 35% correct.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
On our previous version of this test, the average person with normal face recognition was able to recognize about 85% of the faces they were familiar with. If you missed more than half of the faces you were familiar with, this may indicate face recognition difficulties.

For more information about face blindness and other face recognition difficulties, please go to www.faceblind.org.

Got hung up with Tony Blair


I have no idea what the new priminister looks like.
It took me a while to remember his name even.
People talk about him and I'll say I don't know what he looks like and they'll laugh at me and apparently its a funny joke until you say no really what does he look like?
I still don't know though after being shown a lot of times.

I got 95% 8O ...I have so much problem recognising people I have worried that I wont find m boyfriend or family in a crowd.
That was a lousy picture of Tony Blair..I can see him clearly in my mmind and he doesn't look much like that picture(I' American). I often recognize movie stars that I might have only seen once in a movie 30 years ago(een if I can't recall their names)

If they had tested on that I would have had about 33% but since I could just say...that dude in the Mask,made it easier.(Oprahs picture was hard to..when was she that thin?)

ANyway...makes me wonder if I don't have face recognition problem unless there are two or more people who look familiar(like a group of teens or older men)or maybe it's harder in an over stimulation situation?

I go by hair, but if I find a face attractive I'll remember it.

I got 73%

I have some serious memory issues I believe. Many of those people I know...I know there names. But for the life of me I couldn't think of them.

Robery DeNiro for example. I mean come on, he's Robert friggen DeNiro. A pretty common guy.

I missed Arnold Schwarzenegger, Madonna, and Tony Blair. I thought that picture of Arnold was OJ Simpson. :lol:

I did OK, but I thought it was a test of how well you could recall names as much as how well you could recall faces. If they had a " Brad Pitt's Ex" or " The 'You looking at me?' guy" option, I would have done better. :)

I always wondered what Blair looked liked.

I think this is a poor test on face blindness

The site did mention that some people with face-blindness can actually do very well with celebrities.

It said at the beginning that you could write whatever you wanted, as long as it corresponded with the correct person, as in you know that you correctly identified it. That's why it got you to click on the options for if you were correct or not rather than going by what you wrote in the box.

I got 77% correct, so I did pretty well, but I missed a couple of funny ones, like Madonna and Robert DeNiro. I knew Robert DeNiro looked familiar, but I couldn't think of who he was or what I had seen him in. Madonna I always have trouble recognizing for some reason- weird! I also didn't recognize Nixon, which is kind of bad considering that he was a fairly important president.

Edit: I just realized that it was exactly one year ago that I joined this site. Woohoo!
