Does anyone else not remember other people's names and faces?

Even if someone tells me their name ten times I can't remember it. Often people I've been introduced to are not people I recognize. Anyone else like this?

  • I can't remember names for anything but I am great with faces. I know I have met people and most of the time I can tell you where I met them, couldn't tell you their names if my life depended on it.

  • I'm bad with names, but I try to associate people's names with something that will help me remember like, Jason and the Argonauts or Ana Banana. I hardly ever forget faces though.

  • I am great with names and generally don't have a problem with faces. However, when I was younger I met this guy through a friend. We agreed to go out on a date the next week. I got there to met him, and I couldn't find him. I forgot what he looked like. I just left because I couldn't remember his name to inquire about him. If I met someone in a uniform or with their hair up, I may have a hard time recognizing them in street clothes or with a different hair style.
