I’ve always been a sucker for those online IQ tests that ask you a bunch of fun, mostly visual/spacial questions, and then proclaim you a genius. (I’ve never enjoyed real IQ tests, though; they’re much more grudging in their endorsements.)
This “Face Memory Test” from the “Science and Nature” portion of the BBC’s website has a very similar feel to it. Apparently, I’m not a “face genius.” Margaret, on the other hand, posted a nearly perfect score. I’m sure there is some important lesson or truth to be learned from that fact. But I’m afraid of what it might be…
I never forget a face. But in your case, I’ll be glad to make an exception.
Orthodox. Faithful. Free.
