So here’s a tiny snippet of Part Seven of Signalling Theory, Apperception:

The light from the street lights ringing the park illuminated the master bedroom of Percy’s home; one of the few houses still standing in this part of the city. He’d forgone his usual routine of a drink, retiring to his room as soon as he’d hung his coat on the peg in the hall, and fortunately his House-Elf hadn’t bothered him about food. He found he had little appetite; it was too late and Percy had long gone past the point of hunger.

He had intended to discard his clothes, crawl into bed and sleep for a solid four hours, but instead he’d found his way to the window. Staring out across the park, a pitch-black mass of trees and unlit open spaces, Percy found his mind revolving around one thing.

Newt Scamander.

Percy’s understanding of Newt Scamander had undergone a rapid evolution since he’d discovered that the British wizard had been responsible for Grindelwald’s discovery. He’s initially started off from a biased perspective, assuming the younger Scamander would be similar to his elder brother – the war hero – only for that assumption to be completely blown out of the water as he’d steadily made his way through the report Goldstein had submitted on the magizoologist’s presence in New York. His conclusion at the end of reading the report was that Scamander had to have been very lucky or just exceptional good at finding trouble.

The trial had ruined Percy’s attempts to categorise Scamander quite effectively.

Poor Percy is faced with so many problems and most of them are Newt’s fault (honest).

Heeeey so it has a name

Apperceptive Prosopagnosia.

I have introduced myself to people an upward of 6 times in the past, i dont recognise people i have known for years and its really uncomfortable telling people i dont know who they are when iv been in contact with them online or in other ways.

I have always recognised people on their smell, voice and sometimes tattoos. And it has taken me literal months of constant contact to connect a face to a name.

But turns out today they have a name for it and it is this, im not dumb and im kinda relieved.
