Object recognition

I have now taken the little test here to see what my visual recognition is like.




Face Recognition Memory

In the face recognition test, you were asked to learn the faces of 10 women. When you were tested on these faces, you had to indicate whether a face on the screen was one you learned or one that you hadn't seen before.

Out of 20 familiar faces, you correctly responded that you had seen 15 faces before.

Out of 30 unfamiliar faces, you correctly responded that you had NOT seen 25 faces before.

Overall, you got 80% correct! The average score on this test is 85% correct. Your percentile rank on this test was 28.


Object Recognition Memory

In the object recognition test, you were asked to memorize 10 images of eyeglasses. When you were tested on these eyeglasses, you had to indicate whether a pair of eyeglasses on the screen was one you learned or one that you hadn't seen before.

Out of 20 familiar eyeglasses, you correctly responded that you had seen 17 eyeglasses before.

Out of 30 unfamiliar eyeglasses, you correctly responded that you had NOT seen 21 eyeglasses before.

Overall, you got 76% correct! The average score on this test is 86% correct. Your percentile rank on this test was 14.


Verbal Recognition Memory

In the verbal recognition test, you were asked to learn the names of 12 men. When you were tested on these names, you had to indicate which of four names was one of the names that you had learned.

Out of 12 sets of names, you correctly chose the familiar name 10 times.

Overall, you got 83% correct! The average score on this test is 77% correct. Your percentile rank on this test was 65.




There are several things that strike me as peculiar here.

1. Why did they test the names with a different procedure than the eyeglasses and faces?
2. I am a bit startled that I didn't do worse at the objects and faces; I was expecting those percent corrects to be much lower than the name one, both before and after I had taken the tests.
3. Despite the percent correct on the objects and faces not being too much lower than the average, my percentile scores are significantly lower. I'd be curious to see what the spread is like.
4. The average score for recognizing eyeglasses is slightly higher than the average score for recognizing faces. I find that extremely odd (though probably not statistically significant). I wonder if it's a consequence of the faces being in different positions in different pictures but the eyeglasses being in the same position in all the pictures.
