Prosopagnosia is a condition where an individual lacks the ability to recognize faces. We watched a video on prosopagnosia during class and it struck me as a very odd "illness." I wasn't aware that a disorder like this even existed! I took the online face test and scored a 27. The average score is 85%. I wondered what if I didn't know anyone on the test( maybe I grew up my whole life without watching tv) Retook the test and answered every answer wrong scoring a 0; The test told me "If you missed more than half of the faces you were familiar with, this may indicate face recognition difficulties." Its funny how this is The face recognition test for this illness.

Interesting part: The interviewer cannot recognize the faces upside down and one of them is her own daughter!
