Does this annoy you?
How about this?
Feel like committing murder yet?
If you need a moment to get over that, you might just be a genius!
There’s a real condition called Misophonia, which makes you sensitive to sounds, as you’re more attentive to them. 20% of the people have this condition and man does it grind your gears!
According to studies conducted at Northwestern University, people diagnosed with Misophonia have a higher likelihood of being a creative genius.
Since you pay attention to everything more than 80% of the population, you are better at grasping things and feeding your brain with more fodder to work overtime.
So if you aren’t fazed by chewing or slurping, you don’t really make the cut.
Bring on the chewing hate, you genius, you. And chew on that, lesser mortal.
