Are you saying that if we meet and speak, you wouldn't experience me as a person? You lack data to make this decision?
If we meet and speak, you would be a physical object in the data of experience that looks and behaves in a manner to which the ascription of personhood would be quite appropriate. But there would be no empirical evidence of any putative "experiencer" associated with that physical object, and neither would there be anything in the data of experience that gives grounds for postulating the existence of such a conceptual entity for thepurpose of explanation.
