Author Notes

December 19, 2017 And SCENE! Hope you're enjoying the read so far, lemme know! AND We're going on a holiday break so we'll see you next year!


December 19, 2017 Was wondering when someone would bring up her name and that very bit. XD
December 19, 2017 of course it's a comment from the NEW GUY :)
I'm glad were were able to check that off your list of wonders!
December 19, 2017 Love the detail of Fink taking notes about the people he meets, to compensate for his face blindness. (I also like the way you visualized Fink's issue!)

By the way - I have the same issue as Fink, just not to the same degree. I mostly associate people to context; so it happened to me, to meet a coworker at the grocery store and not to recognize him/her. Plenty of opportunities for embarassing situations!
December 19, 2017 Oh wow. Thanks for sharing your experience! We've read a whole lot of how some people deal with it, Fink can relate to that situation for sure.
December 10, 2019 (Sorry to comment years later)

Same here. If I see someone outside of the context I expect them to be in, I panic. I was once put on the spot by "don't you remember who I am?" in public. And of course I failed. Ugh.
December 14, 2019 ah no worries Mark! And that's horrible! I honestly tell ppl straight up, I just dont remember! lol
May 21, 2021 I keep lists like thjs too! Doesn't work so well in heavily populated areas or big office though -- a lot of people are "types."
July 11, 2019 I was about to say... A few times in my life I didn't recognize people I should have known. I could see the faces but I seemed to have forgotten the names that belong to the faces... It was more a memory issue than a seeing issue. (No big deal, just avoid the names...) I just hope I never have to describe a face...
On the other hand, I tend to see faces where the are none. Most cars have faces. Some houses have faces. Edit: Link removed, the target doesn't exist anymore.
October 11, 2021 I have that problem with voices. White noise=people talking or singing, though I can't understand them. If I get stressed out enough, I even hallucinate my mom calling for me. She's dead now, but it was an issue when she was alive and I was her caregiver. She always had to call twice so I'd be sure it was her.

I always tell people, I'll remember who you are, your name just isn't filed with that info. Face, check, what we talked about, check, name, no clue.
December 25, 2022 You'd think, having an artist's eye for detail, he'd have some kind of visual coping mechanism. Like breaking people faces down and memorizing individual features as if they were not part of faces.
