Chattanooga, Tennessee—

If you only met a person once, how likely are you to remember their name the NEXT time you bump into them?  A new poll found most of us struggle with it.

58% of us say there’s a good chance we wouldn’t remember.  That’s how many said they struggle at least half the time.  Only 7% always remember names.

Men are a little worse at it than women.  55% of women and 61% of men have trouble with names.  Most of us have an easier time with faces though.

Only around 1 in 4 people said there’s a good chance they wouldn’t even recognize the person.  And 28% said they NEVER forget a face.
