Prosopagnosia also known as 'face blindness' is a disorder of the brain. A person with this condition is unable to recognise or tell the difference between faces.
An estimated 2% of the general population suffers from this condition where they may find it difficult to tell the differences in faces of strangers or find it hard to recognise faces of people that they know even their own family and friends.
People with face blindness find difficult to form relationships in a personal and professional capacity due to their inability to differentiate between faces. If they are in a setting that is not familiar to them, it proves very difficult for them to identify people.
It is said that people with moderate face blindness struggle to recognise family members and friends in addition to strangers. While a person with a severe case of face blindness may even find it difficult to recognise their own face.
