Why attentiveness is a virtue

Because then you won't, when introduced, give a big smile, extend your hand, and say all cheerfully "Hi! I'm Aisha, so nice to meet you!!" and get a response like "Uh, yeah, I know. We met twice before... remember?" -D'oh!

Oh man - that is something I would do. I don't remember people very well. Usually faces will seem familiar, but names - forget it!

Tee, I usually am the same, know the face but not the name. I read in a book that what you should do is when introduced try to use their name at least twicel ike "oh melanie, nice to meet you" and then in your head come up with a tune for it like melanie so melancholie... its silly but I've found it works! :)

Anon12, Baraka, Thanks :)
