If You’re Annoyed By Others Chewing, You May Be A Genius

- in My Brain, My World

There was a girl in some of my middle school classes that hated, I mean HATED, the sound of people chewing.

Within just a few weeks of class together, I knew to never chew gum (or anything else) near her desk.

The one time I did I was met with an ear-shattering: “STOP CHEWING!”


As mean as middle schoolers can be, for the most part, everyone was pretty nice to her about it.

But… there’s no need to be ashamed of Misophonia.

According to researchers from Northwestern University, people diagnosed with Misophonia are more likely to be a creative genius than their peers that aren’t fazed by chewing and slurping.

So keep hating on the rude chompers, slurpers and loud “chewers” of the world, you’re smarter than they are anyway!
