Science Says If Loud Chewing Annoys You Then You Have Misphonia

All this time, I thought I was just easily annoyed but it turns out there’s an explanation to why I want to smack the food out of the mouth of a person who’s chewing and smacking so loud I can hear it across the table. It’s not just me!

Thank the Lord. I thought I was just too sensitive but as Time magazine reports, it’s Misophonia. Even autocorrect doesn’t know the term so don’t be shocked if you’ve never heard it.

According to Time,┬áscientists said scans of misophobia sufferers found changes in brain activity when a ‘trigger’ sound was heard. Brain imaging revealed that people with the condition have an abnormality in their emotional control mechanism which causes their brains to go into overdrive on hearing trigger sounds. The researchers also found that trigger sounds could evoke a heightened physiological response, with increased heart rate and sweating.

Turns out, that it’s all about how an individual’s brain functions and how they’re hardwired. This means you don’t develop it over time it’s just something that exists in certain people but not others. Apparently, it’s not just for people like myself who had parents who forbade smacking and chewing with your mouth open. Thanks mom and dad for helping me develop manners. Little did we know, I was hardwired to be annoyed by the sound of smacking and chewing.
