Aloha Friday: Place That Face at #DisneySMMoms
In a couple more days, we leave for Disney World. While there, I’m sure to meet many people – both whom I’ve already met online and whom I have never spoken with at all. There’s just one little problem: I have a lot of difficulty remembering faces and names. I swear, some days I wish people would walk around with big, descriptive name tags on them. “Of course I remember you. You’re….. uh…. [reading] John. Smith. Of Such-and-Such dot com. How could I ever forget?”
It takes me quite a few times to match faces and names and many things can mess this up. See a person in a setting that I usually don’t see them? Instant unrecognition. (Example: Seeing people from work at the supermarket.) New hairstyle? Who are you again? Not seeing a person on a regular basis? Big trouble remembering them. (Example: Some people from my company who I only see every few months.) Heck, if you lined my cousins and their wives up, I might not be able to match the six of them up properly or remember who is named what. (Of course, it doesn’t help that I see my cousins once per year, tops.)
So my Aloha Friday question to you is: Do you have trouble remembering the names of people you meet? If so, what tricks do you use to keep the faces/names straight?
