Before the coronavirus pandemic and mandatory face masks, people would see several faces in a day, but not everyone has the ability to remember them.
So, researcher Dr Josh P. Davis of the University of Greenwich has created a short and easy online test to check if you have the exceptional facial recognition ability.
Davis describes that people with this ability are “super-recognizers,” and make up less than one percent of the population.
The test will show you one face for a while and then present a photo line challenging you to identify the original face correctly. If you score above 10 out of 14, you might be one of the rare “super-recognizers” in the world. Try it out the test here.
