They're Not So Much Phobias...

...since phobia usually means you're afraid of something, but whatever.  First, I cannot, at all, stand things that blink, flash, wave, sway,'s hard to explain. I'll give a few examples. Hazards in a car, windshield wipers, balloons blowing in the wind, this Eldorado Savings bank sign by my house that rotates in a circle...things like that. I don't know why, just can't stand them.

Another one is repetitive things. Like, as I mentioned above, things that blink, when a song's on repeat (I can play a song more than once in a row, but only when I do it manually), pretty much anything that repeats over and over for an indefinite amount of time. Can't be around that.

And finally, my last weird 'phobia' would be things that stay on/playing when no one's around. Like TVs, radios, traffic lights that change when there's not a car in sight. Whenever it's something that people are supposed to use, but no one's around. It irks me terribly, for some reason.

I don't know if any of this actually made sense, but I thought I'd give it a shot and try to explain it as best I could.

omg i hate repeptitive things to, they are so irritating i cant stand it

At first glance all those things seem to be unrelated but it seems like there's a general theme behind it... Repetitive inanimate action. The tv being left on and things like that I think still falls into the same category. It could also be a bit of unmonitored inanimate "actions" that you dislike.<br />
<br />
I would really wonder what that stems from. Are these things ever eerie or creepy to you in any way or just irritating?<br />
<br />
If they're creepy at all, irritation isn't a far leap away emotionally. I would guess your mind doesn't care too much for unnatural things. But I don't know enough about it.

Makes sense to me, I can see why those things bother you.
