i think it's weird because i suck at remembering faces in real life, when i am introduced to people i almost always manage to introduce myself again a week later.. let alone remember a name. looks like my short term memory is working much better than the long term storage system!

That's funny because I find the oposite is true with me.

^ then you must be one of those people that are able to study months before an exam and actually remember what they learn!
i'm one of those that pulls an all-nighter before going to the exam :rolleyes:

94% face recognition

--> I almost never forget a face. It's embarrassing because i sometimes recognize people from somewhere, even without ever having spoken to them, and when I do get around to speaking with them they don't always remember me. Quite unflattering, overall, so I've learned to SHUT UP about it until i'm sure the other person actually remembers.

face recognition - 92% correct, percentile rank 80
object recognition - 98% correct, percentile rank 90
verbal recognition - 75% correct, percentile rank 48.
i'm surprised that the face recognition score is that high, because i really felt like i struggled with the test. and i'm surprised that verbal recognition is so low because i felt like i remembered everything correctly.
the verbal thing is also interesting because i write copy for a living. you'd think i'd have a better relationship with words.

If only my long-term memory were as good as my short-term...

the eyeglasses stumped me a little

So I'll forget or dyslex your name fairly easily, but I'm pretty likely to remember your face...esp. if you wear glasses.

^Short-term memory abilities are a poor measure of intelligence. Or common sense. Or character. Or anything, really, other than short-term memory. :) And I'd trade it for the ability to spot a jerk at 100 yards...
