Description

Boost your social skills by mastering your ability to remember the faces and identities of people you meet.

e-Faces & Names is a brain training game from www.mybrainsolutions.com. By presenting you with a series of faces and associated names and occupations, you are challenged to develop new strategies for taking ‘mental notes’ in helping you match the person’s face to their identity.

Training to do this in a game can transfer this skill to the real world.

Science:

Social skills are a central part of good Self Regulation [1, 2]. For effective social skills, we often need to remember the link between people’s faces, names and occupations. To do this, we form associations between our Emotion, Feeling and Thinking processes.

Sometimes we listen out for our own name, rather than make the association between another person’s name and their face. Our brain systems’ tend to pick up facial cues automatically [1]. However, they rely on practice and memory associations to identify a person and make the link to their name and occupation [3, 4].

Practicing strategies for linking faces, names and occupations is a way to optimize these brain functions, and improve social skills.

Who doesn't want to be better at this?

:
This app is great. Who doesn't want to be better at remember the names of the people they meet? The higher levels are though! Good challenge. Not sure why another user had a problem synching. My account synchs just fine. The 'brain points' I earn for playing allow me to earn a health credit through my employer (I receive access to mybrainsolutions through my employer as part of our wellness offering). Thanks mybrainsolutions!

Faces and naaaames!

:
Great app! It's pretty tricky to remember these things in real-life when you meet so many people on a daily-basis. This can help you 'meet' people and learn about their occupations and recall it later. Pretty helpful for memory training.

Syncs online with your MyBrainSolutions.com account, so not sure what AvgReviewer is talking about. Your brain points show up online just fine.

I only wish it would allow you to import your own pictures, names and occupations for working on your real-life acquaintances. Would be super cool and personalized, but they do have a huge amount of pictures and names/occupations.

love it

3/5 stars

DOES NOT USE YOUR CONTACTS - FICTIONAL PEOPLE ONLY

:
I'm sure this is a great app for the general training of memory skills, especially if you're involved with the "Brain Solutions" stuff. But if you're looking for a tool to help improve recognition of the names and faces in your own contacts list, THIS IS NOT IT. It's easy to overlook that fact if you arrived at the app via search, especially when the developer uses phrases like "remember the faces and identities of people you meet."
