 I have some degree of prosopognosia. I often have people come up to me and expect me to recognize them. Fortunately, I am able to recognize family and friends (as opposed to acquaintances). I believe I've read that Oliver Sacks had a more severe case.

 What is prosopognosia? If that means having trouble pinning names to faces and vice versa, I have that. Once when my son-in-law said his mother would be picking me up at the airport, he had no idea why I asked what she'd be driving, or why it mattered? Well, because I can recognize things like "A light green Toyota with California plates." I wasn't sure I could pick her out of the crowd.
