My results are so bad that it's embarrasing to post them :oops: what would cause this low of scores except for like being mentally retarded? ADHD? I really don't know, but this is really bad. REALLY bad. The only reason I probably did better on the verbal one is because the sample size was so low.

I bombed this test wrote:
Face Recognition Memory

In the face recognition test, you were asked to learn the faces of 10 women. When you were tested on these faces, you had to indicate whether a face on the screen was one you learned or one that you hadn't seen before.

I was surprised by the higher than expected score I got for name recognition. I reflect that I maybe remember names that I see written or that I speak better than names that I hear in introduction or in conversation. I didn't realise that all the faces were female, I thought some were male.

I did too well which makes me suspicious. in real life my face recognition is quite poor. It's not like faces keep still in real life, nor can you stare blankly at people to memorise their face. It definitely doesn't reflect my abilities irl. I have had two beers though, maybe that helped!

I know I have always been hopeless with names and faces, but that bad? I also had a childhood fascination with spectacles but I my object recognition is quite good 'I think' anyway.

Being a person who is very easy to recognise I am always finding people stopping me to talk and I am wondering "Where do I know you from?" It can be quite embarising :oops:

I didn't realise that the faces were all of women until the end of the test...And the fact that I received a somewhat high score in face recognition is misleading, because I entered 'no' when I wasn't sure...even if I had seen all those faces before, I probably still would have entered 'no'. (does that make any sense?)
I also didn't think I was that good at object and name recognition, it seemed to go by instinct rather than thinking about it.

I love the exclamation marks, especially when you've done really poorly. It's like, congratulations! You scored in the 2nd percentile! Your visual memory sucks! Hooray! That was not a surprise, but I would have thought I'd have done better on the verbal recognition memory one- but I guess names aren't the most interesting thing they could have picked. On an actual test I had of my ability to learn novel words, I scored in the 99th percentile- but who cares if someone's name is Alberton or Albertson?

I think i should've done worse on the verbal/name part of the test, I'm terrible with names. The other stuff I pretty much expected, and yet am still pleasantly surprised. If I do have some sort of problem with face recognition, it's more an issue with how to greet someone when i'm not sure weather or not it is the person (shyness i guess?).

Face Recognition: 94%
Object Recognition: 94%
Verbal Recognition: 92%

This test is really basic, and of course, is performed while we're sitting quietly at our computers, not out in a noisy and crowded public place. I'm pretty sure my sensory overload is to blame for my failure to remember the names and faces of people I encounter in public, not to mention my lack of memory for directions. Trying to hear and process someone's name and then connect it to their face, while attempting to screen out the surrounding sensory chaos, is a much more complex process than anything I had to do on that test. It was a fun test, though.
