Face Blindness

I always had this really good memory when it came to people. I remember that I went to a festival in PA every year, and one year I saw someone that I had met in passing and I remembered their face, name, everything. I've always had that ability when it came to people. Of course not thinking about it, I assumed they'd remember me too, but they didn't at first. I never really understood why that happens to people, where they meet people and a few weeks later can't even remember their face. I assumed it was because in today's society, were so absorbed into phones and computers. At least now I know its not all because of that.

  1. I find it difficult to remember names but faces I always remember. In todays society people are so absorbed in technology. Kids are often socially awkward and often forget how to greet others. The distinctions in peoples faces help me recognize and remember the dominant characteristic feature they carry. Great comment.
