    Faces, hands down.

    I'm better with names if they're written down. otherwise, neither.

    I'm good at recognizing faces - for example, noticing that the same person is in more than one of my classes at school - but pretty terrible at remembering names at first. I can be introduced to someone and forget their name not even ten seconds later. However, it seems like if I learn their name some other way, I'm better at remembering it. Very weird.

    It takes me anywhere from a week to a year to get names down. And some, I never do. I could only tell you three of my ten latest teachers, and that's after thinking about it; these are people I see everyday.

    I remember things like posture, clothing style, gait, attitude/disposition, collective traits etc, better than I do faces. For instance, there's this one girl around school who I was introduced to. I've seen her about three times in the past four months.
    I don't know what she looks like or what her name is, but I can recognize her. She's "quirky, upbeat, rather energetic and jumpy, shortish/odd hairstyle, lots of accessories, messenger bag, anime and manga girl".
    There are, of course, probably a thousand girls who are like this, but she's like this in a certain way I can't put into words.

    Faces by a long shot.

    I'm quite good with both names and faces (eidetic memory) but if I had to make a choice, I'd go with faces.
    Faces are unique, names aren't.

    I have an extremely visual memory so, faces. I suck at remembering names.

    When I meet someone new I don't bother to remember their name and if you asked me to describe their face I couldn't do that either. Were I to encounter them again in the near future I would probably recognise them but wouldn't know who they are or where we first met. Only once I've met someone at least three times might I remember their name (I'm not really a big user of names - I can spend days with people without using them) but I still couldn't describe the person beyond hair colour and approximate height.

    I had to do a police lineout once and didn't have a clue
