Do I Have Perfect Pitch?

I've been playing piano since I was about 11 (self-taught myself in about 3 weeks) and I've been playing constantly since. I'm 18, listen to music CONSTANTLY and have been for years.

I'm 18, listen to music CONSTANTLY and have been for years. To get to the point, I began reading on AP about a year and a half ago and I began getting interested in it and wanted to learn it, so I went to some sites, etc., and took the lessons and found that most of it was incredibly easy and I had a very high success rate. I haven't trained myself at all and if you play me a note on the piano, I can pick it up. If you even tap a glass or anything with a pitch, I can tell you what key it's in, with 100% accuracy. So when it comes to single notes, I can pick it up instantly. And when I listen to songs I can get a good idea of the chords that are playing.

But, for some reason, when I listen to songs, if I listen to melodies, solos, usually more than one note, intervals and I have trouble picking it up, which seems ironic.
Update: Play me a single note or pitch, I can instantly tell you what it is, but I can't do it when it comes to the other stuff, not instantly, anyways. I just get stumped. Chords I can pick up usually most of the time and can tell you what key something is it. Can the fact that I can't pick up on more complex... show more Play me a single note or pitch, I can instantly tell you what it is, but I can't do it when it comes to the other stuff, not instantly, anyways. I just get stumped. Chords I can pick up usually most of the time and can tell you what key something is it. Can the fact that I can't pick up on more complex chords be more of a product of my unfamiliarity with them in general and with more training on music, I can pick them up eventually, with relative pitch? I guess basically the question is: despite this, do I still have perfect pitch?
