    Default Losing sense of a word after it's repeated enough?

    Anyone ever get this - after a word is repeated enough and you hear it enough, you start to lose sense of it, and it sounds funny?

    Like for example, if a word is repeated a lot on a video that I see or from someone talking, then the word just starts to sound funny/strange. AND if I write a word repeatedly, it starts to LOOK funny/strange after I keep writing it.

    i know this (?) from funny pictures. i saw the funniest picture ever (drawn) that had like 5 different layers of humor in it. after adding it to my blog, and knowing it for a year, i was not able to interpret more than one or two layers, let alone laugh about any of them. (actually, right now, it don't get a single layer. argh!)








    and it sounds funny?
    not sure, if i get that part.

    Sometimes, I forget how a simple word is spelled. I look it up, but it doesn't visually appear as I had remembered it. The correct spelling seems off to me.

    I don't identify with words losing meaning and frequency of use.

    Yeah. After a while it just becomes a container of a symbol, and then it becomes a foreign language, and then it becomes a strange sound, and then my vision starts to give out, and then I'm blinded for the next 30 minutes.

    hm, given my bad spelling, it seems likely, that i never look at words, after writing them. so, i am not sure. but i can relate to the gooey-ness of subjectivity.

    Yeah, everything before the vision giving out part. I'm not joking with this either.

    I got the general idea of what you were saying from the title, it doesn't seem that strange of a question, in concept. I'd think it would happen to everyone, now and then.
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.
