Do you hate the sound of other people eating, chewing, swallowing, etc. ? IF so, you are not alone. You have what is called ‘misophonia’ (nothing to do with miso soup, in case you were wondering.)
New research has discovered that those with misophonia “…have stronger connectivity between the part of the brain that processes sounds and the part of the so-called premotor cortex which handles mouth and throat muscle movements.” It has to do with your brain’s mirror neuron system. (Huh, you say? Well, read the article here and see if it makes more sense to you.)
If you were part of the photo below, and if you have misophonia, you would probably have to run screaming from the room!
I hope no one has this problem. It would be especially bad for an extrovert.
