Some people are great with faces, others not so much. For both groups—and everyone in-between—this online test presents a way to quantify your facial memory (i.e., your ability to recognise and remember faces).

The Cambridge Face Memory Test is designed to assess whether or not people have face recognition difficulties. It requires 20 minutes of your time and a quiet environment. The test will include tasks like choosing from a line-up a face you were previously shown; it’s pretty simple and straightforward.
At the end of the test you’ll get a % score — a measurement, once and or all, of your facial memory skills. (So, how’d you do?)
Recall that if you have trouble remembering people, you could also try to picture them as cartoons.
