I have a thing called Prosopagnosia, commonly referred to as face blindness (not that it's referred to at all ever) I can't be buggered explaining it so you'll have to look it up.
Basically i I have trouble recognising faces and as s result people generally look the same to me unless they have an outstanding feature like slanted eyes (sorry. Sounds racist but it's not) piercings, or large noses, extended chins etc. (skin colour helps to differentiate too. But still. Black people look the same. Asians look the same. White people look the same and everyone else looks the same.)
Im not racist or rude for this, I just have a fail in the ability to differentiate between faces. (It also affects my ability to recognise gender, attractiveness, and whether I'm looking at my father or his older brother)
Anyone else think people all look the same?

I know of the condition you're talking about and damn, that must suck.
After moving to the UK I've actually started being able to differentiate Asians better. Before they looked all the same, now I find myself correcting people when they call a Filipino, Korean, Japanese person Chinese.
The exposure has helped me see differences better.1
