I agree that she is unusual. All jokes about women never forgetting aside.

She is also a super recognizer. She can see a famous face for a brief instance and is confident she knows who it is and is almost always right. She can see a child picture of a famous adult and quickly know who it is.

I am very far from that. I tend to need to hear their voice before I can have a level of confidence. Superman's disguise as Clark Kent would work on me. Change your hair, I probably won't recognize you for a while. I've always been that way. Don't get mugged, I'll be a lousy witness.

I think facial recognition and memory are tied together. She remembers the fine details that make up a face, me not so much unless I really, really, know it.
