    Names, the faces I know change too often.

    I can't remember names very well but I wont forget a face. All I need to do is take a quick mental snapshot and store it in the pile of crap I call my brain. *toss and score!*

    I have prosopagnosia, often described as face blindness (cf. colour blindness) or face dyslexia, so I am better with names.

    I can't remember names or faces all that well, but if I had to choose one it would be faces. Due to my need for accuracy (and not wanting to be embarrassed) I have to be 100% sure of names before I use them.

    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.
    When I remember people like that, by personalities or what kind of personality they put off, I wonder how people view me.

    I find it hard to remember names, but faces I remember even when I don't want to. Same goes for numbers and some useless details. For instance, when I was in high school, I knew the date of birthday of 70% of the class.

    Names... I'm primarily an auditory person so it's pretty easy for me to remember someone's name when he/she introduces him/herself.

    I am much better with faces than names in real life. Names come and go ( damn all of those common names ) but faces remain. Books (fiction or non-fiction) however seems to be a lot different I can remember a name that is only mentioned once or twice for the rest of the year to the amazement of those around me.

    Names, I'm pretty awful with both though really.
