Misophonia

Misophonia

Misophonia is a neurophysiological condition where people have an excessively negative reaction to specific sounds, like slurping, humming, tapping, typing, or texting.

Misophonia means "hatred of sound" and people with this condition are aware of their overreaction, but can't control their reaction.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

Anger is the most common misophonic response, followed by anxiety or disgust.

Misophonics are unable to ignore annoying sounds. It seems that selective attention may be impaired in these individuals. The only option when their attention becomes fixated on a trigger sound may be fight or flight.

The aversion to trigger sounds develops in childhood and tends to get worse over time.
