Mark, did you know my first *serious* job was as a "cordboard operator" which is what your picture is of?
Yes! You mentioned that to me some time ago. :woot: That's the inspiration for the image. :smile:

Normally I do not let anyone take my picture. It steals my spirit. :wideeyed::biggrin: Occasionally my family FORCES me to be in a picture or someone gets cute and sets me up. Which is what happened here. One of my coworkers handed me a pair of MONstrous 1980's sunglasses and said 'Here...put these on and strike us a pose.' So...I did! But the brat had her phone with her and caught me being weird. Hopefully this will be too small to see well, but here's me sporting an AWEsome pair of '80's shades. You all now have a piece of my spirit. :oldwink:

Whaaat! I thought tsu was an old man and in fact, she's a pretty lady!
I'm sorry tsu for having a wrong picture of you in my head :-)
I hope that the fact that I've read only a few of your posts can explain this unintentional insult to some degree :-)
Can you ever forgive me?!?!

There is nothing to forgive, Sophia. :oldsmile: Years ago, Evo and I were two of the Sisters of PF (That's why the "Nuns (Sisters) with Guns" photo :oldbiggrin:). The others have gone and I have only recently popped up again for awhile. When spring comes I will be here less. I have a beautiful 5 acre parcel of land with a creek and I spend a LOT of time out there when the weather is good.

I fully understand that you spend so much time in such a lovely place! I love nature too. In the summer, I take my dog and we walk through meadows for couple of hours. If I had a parcel like you I'd be outside all day long :-)

Please don't post pics of yourselves on the internet. I'm actually ignoring the pics members post. Not this thread, but other threads as well with what appear to be picture of members. When I see what appears to be a real pic of someone I divert my look, scroll away and don't see it. Good thing I'm terrible at remembering faces. I need to put a huge mental effort to remember someone's face or see them like a thousand times to remember. I never sweat the details of people's faces.

@berkeman - I visualize this as the most rebel of mentors. :biggrin: I may be wrong, I don't know. I have seen him posting at threads that are already closed :DD. Like: "Who cares if this is closed, I'm still going to post my mind." :oldlaugh:

A few days ago I met a former neighbour in a drug store. It's been a little embarrassing that I did not recognize him before he turned on me to say goodbye.

We are in the same ship then. :nb) It happens to me a lot. People have to look at my face like: "Aren't you going to say hello?" in order for me to trigger a recognition of them. Or simply say hi first. At times people greet me and I greet them back, but very awkward like: "Where do I know this person from? Come on, remember!"

EDIT: A girl once got angry at me at uni because I did not remember her. She called me by my name, but I could not recognize her. I told her: "If you know my name I suppose I know you from somewhere, right?" I think I shouldn't have said that, she looked like I offended one of her great ancestors.

Blond? I'm sure you posted a picture years ago of you in Hawaii and you had dark hair.

I once stood in the queue of the mensa and in front of me was a girl in a short skirt and with beautiful legs. As I dreamt a little by myself she all of a sudden turned around... "Hi, Christine! :oops:" - Luckily she took it as a compliment as I later told her about it. But no way I would have associated her beforehand.

I'm terrible at remembering faces! It's so embarrassing. Than it seems like I'm so rude when I don't greet people.
I admire our HS teacher. He only asked each of 23 students their name once and immediately remembered them all.
I'm quite good at remembering voices. I always remember it and sometimes when someone greets me I recognize them by their voice instead of face :) But obviously, they have to greet me first :-p

It sounds like you may possibly have prosopagnosia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prosopagnosia

Tests for this exist. I don't know if it would be worth it for you to get tested except that it might exonerate you from accusations of being inattentive.

It's possible that I have a light form of this disorder. It's not that I don't recognize faces at all, but it seems that I need a lot more (compared to what seems normal) encounters with a person before I can recognize them in different situation and/ or clothing.

Maybe like me, your brain is full. To remember a new face, you will have to forget an old one. :smile:
I don't know what the condition is called.
And I'm not trying to claim I'm really smart or anything. Most of the stuff in my brain is old useless junk.:redface:

Came close to how I look when mom gives me cereal in the morning...! :H
I have it. I hate this new forum software, you can't attach an image, it has to be hosted somewhere else.

If the two of Evo and Tsu were the nuns of PF long ago, who are all the other people in the pic?
I guess you can teach an old mule new tricks. Here's me . View attachment 96050
Aah EVO..! You took all the fun out of how we were imagining you...!

I picture people based on their avatar and name.
The point of the thread is to tell out loud how you picture them.
