Recognizing people


I don’t have Prosopagnosia, only aphantasia yet recognizing someone I have not seen in months or years can be difficult. Usually their voice causes me to realize who they are or sometimes a particular visual attribute tips me off such as their hair color/style. When working in retail I see a steady stream of faces. Sometimes I completely forget who I was helping which makes it extremely difficult to find the customer again. Does anyone else struggle with this? How do you explain it to people without feeling like an idiot?

Do you have difficulty recognizing people? What tricks do you use?
