Firstly, Super-recognisers are heros due to the discovers have been making throughout this time.
The ability to remember faces is said that it isn't very recognized. However, nowadays security is one of the most important principle in society and population must feel safe.
Theirs works increase the well-being of a population who are terrified for terrorism, robberies, shoplifters, pickpockets...
If you have these extraordinary skills, you should work as super-recogniser.

I might be wrong in saying this, but I think these super-recognisers hace their days numbered. I firmly believe technology is going to surpass most of human skills, and face recognition is one of them. There is no doubt in a not too distant future, artifitial intelligence will be able to identify faces with very few images. Furthermore, it should be taken into consideration that recording quiality and resolution is in ongoing evolution, so the sharpness of recorded images will be much better in some years.

In my opinon, is good to use this human skills for good actions, but, we need to take in count the disadvantages, for example, using super-recognisers to commit all kinds of crimes. I check the website to prove my skills and... 13/14! It is so interesting...

Based on my own experience, I can say that I'm really bad at remembering faces. Many times, when someone greets me, I say hello, but internally, I'm wondering who is that person. I think most people don't realize that because I'm great at putting on the poker face. :)
