Good things come in pairs:

1. This amazingly detailed chart of comic book facial expressions by Joumana Medlej is meant as a tutorial for illustrators, but that description does not give it enough credit. Our faces inevitably give away our emotions. This is their map.

Emotions and Facial Expression by Cedarseed

2. However there are those for whom faces seem mostly unfamiliar. Those suffering from face blindness. If people keep greeting you on the street and you have no idea who they are, maybe you have it too. Cambridge University has a free diagnostic test for face recognition, online. It is harder than it looks like believe me!
