This is one of the most fascinating things I’ve ever seen … there are people who can’t recognize faces; even their own, or their children. They think as many as 1 in 50 people suffer from it, but just like color blindness, it never occurs to them that they are different unless they have to take a test.
The story goes on to talk about super-recognizers that never forget a face. They can look at a baby picture of someone and know who it is.
How many friendships would a condition like prosopagnosia destroy? What about career limitations of face blindness?
