Is forgetting people's names a problem for other INFP's?
Sometimes people have to tell me WAY too many times -- Unless, of course I REALLY like them, then I remember right away, but that rarely ever happens.
For example: I worked with a guy for a year, saw and talked to him every day, even went out for beers with him and his brother a few times. Saw him about 6 months later and for the life of me...I COULDN'T REMEMBER HIS NAME!! I was SO embarrassed, he was insulted beyond belief.
And how about dates?
I always forget these too.
This always gets me into trouble when I'm debating my INTP brother (on ANY subject) because I often get them "wrong" only by a little, but he jumps right on it and decides the whole idea or theory is "invalid" because of this. He gets stuck on the "details" I feel, while missing the "big picture" -- I feel.
Even after I've printed out the articles and tried to memorize the factual details, I soon forget them. This drives me mad.
So, my question is: How are other INFP's at remembering such things??? A.K.A. can I blame it on my "type?"
