Does the sound of your significant chomping on their food make you want to rip your ears off?
Or doese the sound of that co-worker smacking their gum drive you nuts?
If you answered yes to those questions, you might have a condition called misophonia aka a heightened sensitivity to certain noises.
And, GOOD NEWS, researchers from Northwestern University found that people who are hypersensitive to certain noises tend to be more creative.
And it gets better! Those with the highest levels of annoyance scored highest on creative testing.
So, next time your roommate, co-worker or significant other are driving you bananas with their chomping and chewing take solace in knowing it makes you a creative genius!
