Test to see if you have misophonia has people’s ‘skin crawling’

Test to see if you have misophonia has people’s ‘skin crawling’

Some people can't even make it to the end of the test

Now, there are a whole bunch of phobias out there.

From the creepy arachnophobia and peculiar automatonophobia to the daunting thalassophobia and spine-chilling scopophobia - there seems to be a phobia for just about everything you could ever think of.

Thanks to the internet, we can now test for ourselves exactly which irrational fears we may or may not have with the latest test being all about misophonia.

Do some sounds or noises make your skin crawl? Then you, my friend, may have misophonia.

Reckon you have it? Try out the test:

Luckily, the Misophonia Hub has come to the rescue and compiled a neat little run down of some of the most triggering sounds for anyone who has the phobia.

The TikTok video begins by providing a handy definition of misophonia which reads: "Misophonia is a selective sound sensitivity syndrome that starts with a trigger."

The phobia is also sometimes referred to as a 'hatred or dislike of sound', the overlay text adds.

It continues: "Specific sounds could trigger emotional distress, anger and elicit behavioural responses.

"Misophonia can be common among individuals with OCD, anxiety disorders, or even Tourette Syndrome."

Up first on the list is the sound of 'chewing'.

Now, this isn't your average noshing - this sounds like somebody has squelched about 10 raw steaks in their gob as they chomp down with an open mouth over a megaphone.

Next is 'lip smacking' which has quite literally sent me up the wall.

Seven trigger sounds were included in the misophobia test.

While it's beyond annoying and definitely something I'd attempt to drown out with some headphones if in public - I can't say it's as worse as the chewing.

Third on the list is 'pencil tapping' which, granted, is far less skin-crawly but nonetheless extremely irritating.

Fourth is 'plastic crumbling' which is akin to the sound you make rummaging through that random draw in your house jam-packed with bags for life.

For anyone who works in an office this next one is probably all too relatable - 'slow typing'.

It sounds like exactly what it says on the tin, but is still definitely heaps better than any of the bodily sounds.

Talking of which, sixth on the rundown is 'slurping', which I'm sure has been everyone's pet peeve since the dawn of time.

And last is 'sniffling' which is definitely a sound I have to brace myself for every winter.

Oh - and to really hammer the point, the test ends by simultaneously playing all seven trigger sounds at once.

The bizarre video has since sent the internet into a total spiral after clocking up more than 46.8k views with dozens upon dozens of comments from people eager to share their thoughts on the matter.

Many rushed in to share exactly which sounds made then shudder with one particular one clearly taking home the trophy for the worst.

It's fair to say that people had some very visceral reactions.

One TikTok user penned: "THE CHEWING GOT ME CRYING FOR 10 DAMN MINUTES…"

A second echoed: "THE CHEWING MADE ME GO MAD IN ONE SECOND!"

"Chewing had me tearing up," echoed a third.

Another quipped: "Chewing and slurping is the worst for me so I automatically had to stop!"

Others, however, found the 'entire' thing equally unbearable.

"The entire video had my skin crawling and full on anxiety and I'm literally still crying Also was about to yeet my headphones," revealed one TikTok user.

A second admitted: "I couldn’t even finish the video lmfao."

"My heart is literally racing," commented a third while a fourth chimed in: "My anger just kept going up! I failed."

"I WANT TO THROW A CHAIR ACROSS THE ROOM I'M DYING," claimed another.

A final TikTok user added: "NO I LITERALLY feel like I'm going to puke like omg I was like grabbing my ears."

Which sounds - if any - affected you the most?
