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.
Oliver Sachs wrote a lot about prosopagnosia, because he was a neurologist who suffered from the condition.
Along of course with many other people with neurological abnormalities, like the man who mistook his wife for
a hat, but had great musical ability.
One of the bad effects is that people get angry because you don’t recognize them or recognize people you don’t
know. (Don’t ask me how I know it would be redundant.)
