Super Recognizers | Kelly Desborough

Where do you know them from? For many it might be an occasional irritation but for 'Super Recognizers' never forgetting a face is a profession. We are delighted to speak with Kelly Desborough, founder of Face Detect and actual Super Recognizer to ask:

  • Can you learn to be a super recognizer?
  • Where does or would this skill benefit EP?
  • Can you match other pieces of information to a super recognizer skill?
  • How fast can someone with this gift locate a face?
  • What might prevent them from accurately recognizing a face?
