Hi
I've heard that many people with autism have problem recognizing faces, is that true? I tried to do this test and scored 63% which is pretty low, i think :)
What score did you have?
this is the test:

I do very well on face recognition tests because I know that I'm being tested on it, so I pay special attention to features that stand out. I don't see faces "as a whole". And if I'm in a normal social situation and not staring at their features to memorize them, I won't recognize them when I see them again. So I think this sort of test is a fail at what it purports to be testing.

Coincidentally, I also scored 63%, but I don't think I'm truly face-blind, though I do have Some difficulty. I think I actually did alright until the last section.

the last part of this test was impossible for me as I have some colorblindness and all I could see was noise, but I assume some features were supposed to be visible.
