|Also, I've read (I think in Reader's Digest) very recently that some people actually have a handicap where they can't distinguish people - and that handicap is on a spectrum, so some people can usually get by but still have trouble in certain situations, like twins that look like siblings but are the same age. Since hardly anyone has heard of this handicap I would imagine most people aren't even aware they have it, just find it hard to identify people in everyday situations.|
I am absolutely terribly at seeing family resemblences...I never SEE that someone looks like someone else. And, honestly...all babies look alike to me, except for major differences like different races or different hair colors/amounts, etc.
It is very true that people differentiate people by age, then gender, then race, then hair color/style. And, if two people are very similar in those things..then I might have difficulty telling them apart.
