HANDS UP if you’ve ever been in the middle of a conversation only to realize you’ve completely forgotten the name of the person you’re speaking to.
Well it turns out you are not alone.
A teacher named Nia was branded a “genius” online after sharing this very clever trick she uses when she forgets the names of her students.
She posted a video on TikTok and explained: “Lifehack #1 – what to do when you can’t remember someone’s name.
“Want to hear a lifehack?”
She continued, “Anytime I don’t know someone’s name, I’m like, ‘You know it’s really hard to say your own name three times as fast because you’re not used to saying your own name? ‘”
Nia captioned the post, “I do this with my school’s students and with people I meet at gigs as well.”
The clip has since gone viral, garnering a pretty impressive 2.7 million views along with hundreds of comments.

Another recalled: “I once asked someone how to spell their name because I couldn’t remember. It was AJ.”
And another added: “I’m just like, ‘How do you spell your name?’
