In professional and social settings, being able to recognize a person’s face, recall their name and pronounce it correctly, is an asset.
Some people use their formal name over the commonly associated nickname – like Bill for William or Peggy for Margaret. Listen to how others introduce themselves – the name they use and how they pronounce it. Remember and mimic what they say.
Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital offer an important tip that can help us to more frequently remember faces and names: get a good night’s sleep – a full eight hours.
Think about it: those who remember us – our face and name – positively impress us. A good night’s sleep might boost your level of influence. Sleep more and support yourself in putting your best forward.
