Face Memory Test

Did you know your memory is one of the first things to go when you’re tired? I didn’t! Well, you can take this test to see how well you remember what you’ve seen. I was really tired when I took the test, so my results were very interesting. Give it a try!

The test takes place in three phases:

Phase 1 – In this phase, you’ll be shown 12 photos of people. After you’ve looked at them, you should take a five minute break before moving on to phase 2.

Phase 2 – In this phase, you’ll be shown 12 photos of people. After you’ve looked at them, you should take a five minute break before moving on to phase 3.

Phase 3 – In this phase, you’ll be shown 48 different photos, 24 of which you have already seen in phase 1 and 2. For each photo, you must decide which phase you saw it in or if you’ve never seen it.

After that, your score will be compiled into two categories. One category is just for recognizing the faces you saw in phase 1 and 2. The second category is for correctly recognizing which phase they were from.

I scored 95 percent for the overall recognition and 68 percent for remembering which phase they were from.

I took the test again after a good night’s sleep and my score went up to 100 percent for overall recognition and 85 percent for remembering which phase the face was in. I think that definitely shows how tiredness can affect your brain.

I also recommend taking this quiz to check out your daily rhythm and how fast your reaction time is with Sheep Dash. Have fun!
