Out of 72 faces, you correctly identified 53.
In other words, you got 74% correct.

Pretty average, as I expected.

Also, I can not help but think, in real life people have hair. If they all had different hairstyles, yes it would make it hard. But I suspect that if they originally all had hair on, and then during the quiz was bald, the average would drop dramatically!

I got 89% which is actually better than I thought I would do.

I got 100% correct.

But, I was actively trying to memorize the faces. Also, memorizing faces on the screen from three specific angels is a lot different then in real life though.

66 out of 72, 92%. FAR FAR better than I thought. I figured I'd have gotten like 30% or something.

I guess looking at hot chicks in porn is good for something!

You misunderstood, this test is for facial recognition, not clitoris recognition.

I don't think that's what they meant by "facial memory."

Ugh - - I can't believe you wrote that ....


I was a little surprised he went there also, but that kind of opportunity only presents itself in rare occurrences.

"Out of 72 faces, you correctly identified 58.

I guessed that I was worse than most people, and I'd bet that that's still true in general life. I was *trying* to memorize faces here--I usually don't put any effort into it when I meet people.

Ergh, I got 71% correct. I'm even worse with people's names, so that doesn't bode well.

Like I said in the other thread, I tend to be really good with male voices, too. And these were male faces. I wonder how I'd do if they either were female or had different hair in each picture (meaning face A would have a mullet in one and a pompadour in another.)

If names were thrown in I'd be much less good. My father is the worst at names, though. He'll tell you otherwise but when I was a kid I remember him having conversations calling a man Bob then walking away and suddenly realizing it was Tom.

I thought I'd do even worse, I am as terrible with faces as I am good with voices.

In the questionnaire before hand, I clicked the option that I thought I was better than average with remembering faces. And while that's true, I can't remember names when I meet people. It's like it goes in one ear and out the other. I'd heard of/tried a trick where, when you shake someones hand, you repeat their name and think of someone you know with the same name, with some success, when I actually remember to use it (and of course that does nothing when you don't know anyone else with that persons name).
