Do people age in your head?


Recommended Posts

I was just thinking about how I had some classmates in elementary school, didn’t see them in middle school, and then met them again in high school. I instantly recognized them in high school. But looking back at the yearbooks from elementary school, I didn’t recognize them anymore, they just looked like little kids.

Since I hadn’t seen them on a day to day basis for several years and I no longer recognized them from the way the looked several years ago, how is it that I instantly recognized them when they are several years older?

Are the images of people automatically aging in my head?

No idea, but this is likely one of the reasons I'll never attend a HS class reunion.

I haven't seen most of my classmates in almost 20 years, and aside from a very few exceptions, if I look at their pictures on FB they look like total strangers to me, I wouldn't recognise them from Adam.
