Recent online articles about super recognizers, and a link to a test

Madhumita Venkataramanan’s article for the BBC (third down) is well worth your reading time. I wonder whether Madhumita might have read my tips for acing or gunning tests of face memory?

    Hi! It’s Jennifer Jarett. I was just looking at this post and wasn’t sure if you would be interested to know that the German magazine Allegra also did a story about being a super recognizer. I don’t read German, but my friends who speak German all told me it was interesting!

    Thank you for the tip Jennifer! I’ve managed to get Google Translate to translate the content with a bit of fiddling about. I can explain the steps if you like. When I get a minute I’ll have a proper look thru the article.
