Definition: Prosopagnosia (aka face blindness)

Prosopagnosia

Prosopagnosia, also called face blindness, is a cognitive disorder of face perception in which the ability to recognize familiar faces, including one’s own face (self-recognition), is impaired, while other aspects of visual processing (e.g., object discrimination) and intellectual functioning (e.g., decision-making) remain intact.

 

Basically, you just can’t recognize faces, including your own, or have a lot of difficulty doing so, despite your ability to recognize other things and make decisions being quite normal or even good.

In 2010, the NFL bombed the Super Bowl half time with the Who? that couldn’t sing.

This year, they decided their audience un-aged about 20 years to be wanting the Black Eyed Peas rather than a nearly dead Baby Boomer band.

Facepalm
