Famous Faces Test

This is a test of your famous face recognition. While anyone can take this test, it was created as a way for people to assess whether or not they have face recognition difficulties.

While doing badly on this test does not mean that you have face recognition impairments, it can be an indicator of poor face memory. Likewise, doing well on this test does not rule out face recognition difficulties, as soom people with severe impairments have no trouble recognizing celebrities.
