It’s pretty clear that some people are much better at remembering faces than others. In fact, some people are considered “super-recognizers” for their ability to remember faces—even if the face doesn’t look quite the same on repeat viewings (due to aging, makeup, facial hair, and so on). Being able to identify people who are exceptionally gifted at recognizing faces can help pair them with jobs where that is an important skill.
