The fear of missing out, or FOMO, happens because we find new experiences more exciting than repeat experiences. But research also shows us that we will repeatedly listen to our favourite song or rewatch favourite movies and TV shows.
While many believe that if you want to look interesting, you need to show that you're open to new experiences, we take the value of delving into the known for granted.
Researchers found repeating experiences were often more enjoyable than participants had expected.
Every person will miss a large part of any experience. There are always more layers to explore. Repeating things is another opportunity to experience something fully, especially when the experience is complex.
