Ken Long /// It’s Fun To Be Nice and Face Blindness /// E015

April 7, 2018

Prosopagnosia or face blindness: the inability to recognize faces. Face blindness is thought to be the result of abnormalities, damage, or impairment in the right fusiform gyrus, a fold in the brain that appears to coordinate the neural systems that control facial perception and memory. Remember kids, It's fun to be nice Today's conversation is with Ken, a Technical Sales Engineer, a good dude with a lot of interesting thoughts that will force you to think. He's got a charmingly sharp wit that will keep you on your toes. The challenge is to stay engaged past the initial thought. If you do, it's rewarding, we promise. The topics we cover: * some profanity * Prosopagnosia or face blindness * Team in Training * Evil * Nazis * TEDTalk of a reformed neo-nazi * Quotables from Ken: * "It is lazy to hate a group" * "A Year of bad blind dates" * "I'm going to figure out why I'm not popular" Remember: It's fun to be nice for no other reason than to just be nice. In other news, we're selling awesome t-shirts.  Fantastic tri-blend t-shirts. They're comfy, soft, and come with a message.
