Are You Annoyed By The Sound Of Chewing?
by David Wolfe
The same thing can happen with the sound of someone cutting their nails or even tapping their feet. This sound is not only annoying, but it can also drive some people into an uncontrollable rage. This neurological disorder is called, “misophonia” or the fear of sound.
The condition comes from the central nervous system. It is hard wired to auditory stimuli in a negative way. This causes an individual suffering from the disorder to feel panic, disgust, or anger. They can even experience a “fight or flight” sensation or an anxiety attack.
That might seem like bad news to some, but it might also say something about who one is as a person. This disorder may mean that the one suffering from it may be more creative than most. “Northwestern research provides the first physiological evidence that real-world creativity may be associated with a reduced ability to filter “irrelevant” sensory information.” (Northwestern University)
Basically, those who are naturally creative have a harder time blocking out annoying sounds.
To learn more about misophonia and maybe even a method to treat it, take a look at the video below.
And remember, chewers and chewies, it is not anyone’s fault. It all has to do with the brain!
