Diary #59 Prosopoagnosia - Face Bindness

Following a ski accident my friend Tim Leach has lost the ability to recognise faces.

This is a neurological condition called "prosopoagnosia" (a.k.a. face-blindness).  Take a moment to think: How would you feel not recognising your client at a networking event or your boss in a meeting. It is particularly debilitating because most of us don’t even know the condition exists.


In this 5min video Tim talks about learning to live with it.


Research from Harvard/UCL indicates that one in fifty people have this condition so it is very important to raise awareness.


Do you have prosopoagnosia, or know anyone that does?
