Ya ever see literally dozens of pictures of someone but you can't at all keep a picture of them in your mind because they all look like different people to your ape brain?

@phillyis i think part of it is people actually looking different in photos due to various angles and lighting; i think it can also be caused by poor facial memory; i have a lot of trouble with facial recognition and i think it's due to me being autistic 😅​ i have trouble remembering what my parents and siblings look like just based on memory alone even though i've spent more time with them than anyone else

@phillyis are you wanting an explanation as to why that might be?

@pantransautie ok, this isn't a normal occurrence for me, like two or three people I can think of

@pantransautie something something spectrum etc I guess, because what you said makes sense in these cases but not in general for me
