Remembering some people's faces/voices better than others

Post by animus » Sun Jun 24, 2012 9:36 pm

For example, since meeting this person, I have not been able to picture her in my mind nor recall her voice well at all. In fact, I always picture her as another woman I know for some reason. (How unintentionally rude!) She [the woman I can never recall] is probably the most important person to me, and I have seen her almost every day for almost a year. Stranger yet, is that when I dream about her, I can reconstruct her presence just fine. She looks and sounds just as she is in real life.

Does anyone know why the brain (well, maybe not everyone's?) does this?

This probably fits more with behavioral science than neurology

Hm.. that's true. Are you suggesting I change the category? I don't think there are any for neither behavioral science nor neurology.

Thanks, though.
