Do you get annoyed when some slurps? If yes, then according to few reports, it’s a “condition”. It’s not just slurrping, it can even be when someone is drinking, chewing, crunching, gulping, nail biting, swallowing, clicking, breathing, sniffing, wheezing, whistling, finger tapping, gum popping, and all other sounds made by others body.
Well most of us get annoyed by one or two of the above things. This condition is called Misophonia. It means hatred towards sound. It’s not just sounds, the sounds that annoy you act as triggers in your brain which make you feel weird.
For example, someone across the road is scratching his head but you are able to hear the sound, what happens is, you tend to focus more on the that sound and less on other sounds which make you feel annoyed.
This condition for different types of things can hurt relationships and friendships. It may be tough but you can work towards ignoring the sounds that annoy you.
