On our previous version of this test, the average person with normal face recognition was able to recognize about 80% of the faces. If you correctly identified less than 65% of the faces, this may indicate face recognition difficulties.

I think I got near (Or at least almost near) all of them correct until the staticy faces. Those were psyching my eyes out pretty badly.

90% w00t. it helps if you name them, or say their distinguishing features out loud. "oh, thats fat cheeks guy" or "theres bob"

93% You probably just took part in a bona-fide psychology experiment. i have a friend who researches facial recognition and have been a guinea pig in a few of her lab experiments which were a bit like this.

92%...did better than I thought I would.

This reminded me (sorta) of a quiz we had in my history class. We had to listen to people tell the class details about themselves and then, by name and face alone, remember certain things about what each one of them said.

I can`t match names with faces, let alone facts with faces x_x I drew some very decorated question marks all over that quiz.

Several flaws. I remember people by their hair or voice, not how many shades on black are in their eyes. The six faces are only shown from the front. It was too long, so I got bored. I have a photographic memory, but now when it comes to looking at 6 things for 20 seconds (not even 4 seconds for each face). 64%.

surely part of face recognition is colour of eyes, skin, lips, hair. None of which were present. Also you don`t usually have to remember 6 faces at once within 20 seconds. And you werent shown those faces from the side or front

Got 94%. I think I remember faces quite well, but I`m terrible at remembering names, it`s embarrassing.

I don`t know if this affects in any way, but they were males and older than me, I wonder if it affects the result.
For instance, I think I remember faces of people of my own age better than, say, middle age men`s, because I`m more attentive.

I just heard about this not two days back on a show on CBC. (The Hour) The guy they interviewed sometimes startled himself when he looked in the mirror because he didn`t recognise even his own face.
As for my score, I got 75%. >_< The last section of questions was the worst.
