Are you aware of how much your repeating yourself?

    Are you aware of how much your repeating yourself?

    Some tell the same story over and over, some repeat a sentence so many times. I understand if someone has a hearing issue but this isn't the case. Yo, I heard you the first three times!

    I grew up with a father that would constant repeat himself. Tell the same jokes, and say, "you know what I mean," frequently. So, I have been aware of the redundancy and strive not to repeat myself, tell the same stories or tell the same jokes until the point of nauseum, but who knows for sure; I may be my father's daughter.

    Yes, I'm afraid I repeat myself a lot!  I think I'm getting worse the older I'm getting, too!  I don't mean to repeat myself so much but a lot of times, I don't remember if I've already told something or not, especially if it's something important.  I don't worry too much about it, though, because I've noticed a lot of people repeat themselves, whether they're young or old.

    No!  Because if I was aware of it, then I would know the answer to this question smile

    Am I aware of how much I repeat myself ? If I didn't repeat myself, half the stuff I have told my family would not have left an repetition, eventually the brain will retain the information.. in the subconcious..later to be put in motion and the receiver is totally unaware of why they did it..lesson learned ...practice ...practice..makes perfect...usually I never repeat myself as I am perfection personifide... If I didn't repeat myself, half the stuff I have told my family would not have left an repetition, eventually the brain will retain the information.. in the subconcious..later to be put in motion ..or did I already mention that ?

    PS...( hopefully you got the drift of my answer )

    I have to repeat things at home because my husband's hard of hearing. I have to repeat things at work because visitors are worried and not retaining information properly. In a broader social setting I tend not to repeat things, because it's tedious.

    My dad repeated things more frequently with age, as does my father-in-law now. Maybe once they retired from work, there wasn't much to talk about, so they say everything twice, or more. I think a lot of people are worried they're not being heard. If someone repeats things, I'll say," I hear you." In other words, stop doing that!
