83%. Way better than I thought I'd do. I often don't recognize people.

85%, which seems about right. I often don't recognize people that my husband is able to identify.

97% on the fake faces, 100% on the famous faces

The practice one is a bit misleading, since they use Bart Simpson and show him with other Simpson's characters that look nothing like him.

82%

(90% on celebrities.)

I didn't recognize (clicking on this will bias the celebrity test if you haven't taken it yet):

Spoiler: show
Tony Blair, Thatcher, and De Niro. Also, cutting Condoleeza's face out of a photo really brings out that she has terrible teeth.

I think it's just supposed to confirm that you understand the test and that your computer is working with it?

I always joke that I have face blindness because I never recognize anyone when I run into them on the street unless they have a distinctive feature. I got 65% on the test. I don't think I actually have face blindness just a lousy memory.

I got 88%. I was mostly guessing at the end.

I haven't done this particular test, but I scored above average on the BBC test. That test shows you 12 pictures, you then do something else for 5 mins, after that you're shown 12 more pictures and do something else for 5 mins before finally being shown 48 pictures. You're then supposed to say if you saw the picture in part 1, part 2 or if you've never seen it before. I messed up in which part I'd seen three of them and I completely forgot I'd seen one of them. I think this is why I scare people (I also tend to remember people's names). If you were to ask about people's emotions on the other hand...

I'm below average and it makes me feel really bad about myself. My husband only missed 1 wrong on both tests. Might explain why he's always saying, "Hey, that's the guy who was (this minor role) in ______ movie" and I have no idea who he's talking about.

I got 94%, but I thought I did really horribly! I got tired of looking at the faces toward the end.
I think I'm pretty average with faces..I don't usually notice.

75%, which is about how I thought I'd do. I'm pretty bad at remembering faces in real life unless I remember to make some kind of special effort to.

94% for regular and 92% for famous faces. I've always thought I'm a lot better with names than faces, but maybe not!

I got 92% for the regular faces, which was the only one I took. That's better then average, but in real life I don't stare at people for 20 seconds, memorizing their faces. Maybe I should because I think I'm barely average at this out there in the real world.

I got 68% for the ordinary people (and 90% for the famousy ones), though I always thought I was pretty good at remembering faces! Names, no... faces yes. I put it down to being at work and not really paying attention.

And I got 96% on the celebrity one, excluding the people I wasn't familiar with. Hmm, I'm better at this than I expected.

Sorry, dudes. I only pay attention to your face if you're famous.

94%. Much better than I thought I would do. I am shocking at remembering people if I haven't seen them for a while. Actually, I am much worse at putting names to faces and remembering names.

68% on memory test. After a while everything looked the same and I got bored and stopped caring.


I did awful on the celebrities thing, sort of. I barely knew who anyone was by their face, and then I saw the name and I know who they are because I've heard their name, but I don't really watch a lot of movies so I'm not too familiar with them. I actually wrote "dude from mask" for Jim Carrey, I suck at remembering names to faces even if I know who they are!

Out of 30 faces, you correctly identified 13.
You were familiar with 15 of the people in this test.

If we exclude the ones you were unfamiliar with, you got 87% correct.

I never forget a face. At my last gig I had to meet tons of people that I had only interacted with online, and whenever I'd plan events and they'd show up I'd be able to write their nametag before they even introduced themselves. People find it weird.

I'm also good at recognizing super obscure actors from commercials and movies...even years after I first saw the movie, I'll be like "that's the girl who played the flight attendant in xyz movie."
