Face Blind Test
Face blindness is a disorder of face perception where the ability to recognize faces is impaired, while other aspects of visual processing and intellectual functioning remain intact. I took the face blind test and got 88% correct. Out of 30 faces, i correctly identified 23 faces but was familiar with 26 faces although i could not get their names right. The average person with normal face recognition was able to recognize 85% of the faces. If you missed more than half of the faces this may indicate face recognition difficulties. In my opinion, i thought the test was fun to do, and i thought they did a good job with picking the people who you needed to identify. Many of the people were very famous, they did a few past presidents and they also did some very old actors and singers that i didnt recognize, but in all i thought the test was well put together.
