    faces or names?

    Dear NFs! How are you at remembering faces and names? I'm good at remembering faces... but utterly hopeless when it comes to names. I can forget a person's name the moment it comes out their mouth. The amount of times I've had to ask someone's name in a night is embarrassing... I feel so rude and stupid for asking, especially when I asked only moments ago!

    Would this kind of thing relate to one of my under-active cognitive functions? I'm trying hard to understand each other but oh man, does it take time...

    I'm great with faces, even if it's been years or they alter their looks a little. I have the worst time remembering people's names.

    I have excellent photo graphic memory usually I image the name above there head as if it were a subtitle.

    It is an excellent idea... but wonder if I could actually follow it? I'm so easily distracted. I just take in the visuals while totally disregarding other things! Damn names.

    I suck at remembering both. I remember people from the contents of their thoughts/conversation.

    I have a problem with names. Once I've decided that this person looks like a "Jack" or "Jill" "John" "Heather" I always go, "Hi, Heather" and the other person will be like, "No, I'm Joelle. It's the 4th time you called me Heather.." My response, "Sorry, Heather. Wait..I meant.. Joelle." Horrible. I sincerely want to make an effort to remember, and I do.. but sometimes, when I've got like a million things on my mind? It gets hay-wired.

    Names are tricky for me, not unless if they're long, or unique sounding, then I'd be like, "hababawhut?"

    I seriously suck at remembering names....

    Faces, I would rarely forget and normally recognize but I never notice any details, so I would most times not even be able to recall a persons hair color if asked about it....

    Weird thing, that memory thing, huh?

    I tried that whole word association thing to remember people's names but I would get a picture of the thing I associated with the name in my mind, but not the name.
    I'm so glad I live in a place where it's considered friendly to call folks things like, sweety, buddy, pal, dude, etc.

    I remember faces mostly but I'm getting better and better at remembering names. You just need to stop thinking that you suck at remembering names, think that you are getting better at it and you will get good at it.

    Anyway, my guess is that S user are better at remembering names and N at remembering faces. Both aren't mutually exclusive though.
