I recognize people by their hair and voice. Based on that I give them a made up nickname because I will never rember their face/actual name.

I'm almost positive I have this, though like an inbetween thing. I cant recognize my face and often mistake my friends or such for others, and have even approached people thinking they are my parents, or completely wont recognize my friend, but if I'm paying super close attention I can recognize faces for like a couple of minutes, like of I'm taking a face test or something, it just doesnt stick long term. Does this mean I do or dont gave it?

this was interesting to hear about, I've heard about it before, but it's nice to hear it from someone actually going through it. It also makes sense why you would go to art/animation and even the furry art you like to draw. Since I'm sure it's probably easier to see the difference between characters that way rather than live action actors. Cause with animation and cartoons, other things are usually more prominent to distinguish characters. Not just that the main character wears the same outfit all the time, but the hair usually always stands out and certain features are exaggerated. Also makes me wonder about myself because I've had mild moment where I see an actor from an unusual angle and I go, "Wait... who is...?" And I have to find where in the paragraph or description says the name of the person to realize who it is. I wonder if I should take a test on this or something? Lmao, either way, it isn't super severe for me. Great video Kat.

One time I was at the mall and I was waiting for my mom at the entrance. I was waiting around for her to come in, but I couldn't find her, until I recognized my dad next to her. That day I couldn't find my mom, she was wearing a wig. That was the day I realized that I recognized my mom by her hair, and not her face.

Dunno if i have it. I have add and aspergers and appreantly people with autism have quite common this face blindness. Like sumetimes i cabt regonize people faces very well especially if i dont know them well or if there is other people who have same hair style etc. One time when i was watching a movie i thought there were two different bad guys working together cause they had different hair styles. But people who i watched movie with told me those were same person. I literally thought they were different person cause of their hairstyle etc.

Hey Cat! Dont let the misinformed people get you down. I think most people who care about you, Would understand and if they had a misconception that hurt you. Likely they will apologize. I have FASD and ADD. Since I was very little. Its actually so bad that it got diagnosed when I was so young I cant even remember the process. I do remember being pulled from classes some times to do cognitive tests. Becuse of this as I grew up my family faught hard to get me on a social assistant program. Basically I am un able to work becuse of my condition effectively enough to support myself. If someone who doesn't know me finds this out they can get angry and very belligerent. Saying that physically there is nothing wrong with me so I shouldn't ever have gotten on it. Others (even family) will complain about how some people who dont need it are abusing these systems to sit on thier asses and make money. Not really thinking about how that might effect me. Becuse physically I look fine and have gotten very good at masking my symptoms over the years. What I have learned is- Once you show the people you care about that this affects you. The ones who love you will be understanding and support you. These are the ones to listen to and value thier opinions. I hope that helps. I know it's not the same for everyone. But if this helped you at all ^^ Then it was worth writing. Stay well durring quarantine!

12:14 an example of this in real life, but with cats because I hate everyone else: my cat Tango, has a few tiny little black dots on her face, her eyes are green in sunlight, and golden in unnatural light, I can recognize how she's not that fluffy, she's skittish, her ear fluff, the chip on her ear, and the exact shade of her fur. so when my mom shows me a picture of a random cat that's the same breed, I get offended because they look nothing like Tango. I get easily offended when it comes to Tango.

I feel like having developmental prosopagnosia is better than acquired prosopagnosia because developmental means you don’t know what it’s like so your more used to it (that is unless you have it really badly) whereas if you have acquired prosopagnosia you do know what it was like and know that you can’t go back to it so kat I’m really sorry

This was really interesting and I think my cousin has it. We were over and we took a two day break. I came over two days later with a different hairstyle and he didn’t recognize me. I think it’s kind of between bad and not so bad. I always try to keep something about me the same. He’s given all his friends color coded braclets (most are male) and they didn’t even complain, just rolled with it.

My mother once thought I had face blindness because I occasionally talk about videos I really like and this happened to be one of them. It happened when she was describing one of her long time friends I have met before, but I could not for the life of me remember who this person was. Even when my mom showed me a photo I couldn't recognize them. So she immediately assumed I have face blindness. This is false, I have no problems recognizing most people. I have adhd so I forget things easily if they're not in my line of sight, ya know, out of sight out of mind. This does apply to people, even those I've known for a long time if I haven't seen them in a few years. I just thought it was kinda funny at the time that my mother was so panicked about me having it because I already have so many other problems.. for example: anxiety and gender dysphoria. This video also helped me educate my mother on this being a real thing, as when I first mentioned it, she thought I was making it up.

Hey uh I'm wondering if I have face blindness if the following events occurred. I tried to say hi to an old teacher of mine and I loudly asked him I he knew who I was - I didn't realise after he went into the office that he was actually the school principal. I also saw a person speaking to a class and thought she was a good upper class friend of mine - due to to her dismissing tone, I stopped a realised she was a girl that I had ask to stop talking to me, because I didn't like her. I got really embarrassing memories from it - could I potentially have it 🤔

I can’t recognize my own face, but I can recognize my mom and dad’s faces, and I can just barley recognize a few of my closest friends faces, whenever my best friend Nate gets a hair cut, I’m like “who is this stranger”. do I have Prosopagnosia? Btw, when I only talk to people through zoom calls, and they’r off screen all the time, I forget their face... Edit: wait a minute- I only don’t recognize my own face when I’m wearing my hair in a braid/ponytail and/or bun- my bad

Thanks for the informative video! I'm curious, do you still experience pareidolia when you have prosopagnosia? Pareidolia is that thing where a brain recognizes patterns where none exist, like seeing faces in inanimate objects or animals in clouds. It's the reason we don't have to teach people that a colon followed by a close-parenthesis is meant to be read as a smiley face :)

Wesley P
Wesley P Oy oldin
recognizing faces is one of the more complex specialized parts of the human brain. it would be interesting if you joined a brain study so they could try to examine that part of your brain to try and figure out why it isnt working. the facial recognition part of the brain is one of the most powerful specialized parts of the brain so its very sad you cant see faces. most of the worlds people who are highly skilled at things often use the facial recognition part of the brain to do tasks t a super human level. like chess players. they begin memoring plays and moves using the face recognition portion of their brain. i do wonder if you and other people could have that part of your brain healed or reconnected. in fact it could just be that your brain isnt wired correctly due to some head injury or complication at some point in your life. if thats the case there are many forms of brain therapy they are using now that helps reconnect/reform connects in the brain that were lost due to damage. they are currently using this on people who lack empathy because that part of their brains have become damaged do to being beaten or born with brain damage. im not sure how content you are the way you are, but if i was you id look into possible treatments.

Awesome video and explanation. I have a very mild version. I say very mild because I think that I'm pretty good at recognizing people I know/have talked to a few times. But when I worked in retail, I had issues with totally forgetting who the person I was just helping looked like. I'd go to the back to get the item they asked for, come back out a few minutes or less later, and, even though I was paying attention to them and looking right at them while talking, I couldn't recall who they were. It made for some awkward times of having to walk around and ask random people if they needed help, hoping that the person I was helping would notice me and wave me over.

No, you can see the face, you just can't remember them just based on their face. Like if you see a stranger, kinda. You can see everything about them, you just don't know them just cuz of their face. Like you said, you can see everything else. I think? Not sure but does that kinda explain it?

I have very mild face blindness, but it gets really bad when watching movies where all of the actors look very similar. I remember I was watching a movie with my friend, and I couldn't distinguish between the two white male leads with very similar face shapes for the life of me. My friend was acting like I was faking it or joking around, but I was like no I seriously can't tell the difference. I think that was the first time it really hit me that my whole life I'd struggled with this when watching movies/TV, to the point where it legitimately makes it more difficult for me to follow the plot. There's a lady who looks very similar to Skyler in Breaking Bad, and I remember not realizing they were two people and being very confused.
