does anyone else get mindpops that are unusually intense??
I feel like it's connected to my ADHD but it's so weird to me. it'll be in a different voice and make no sense.

    What's a mindpop, if you don't mind me asking?

      ofc! From what I've be able to find it's the most similar to what I experience. It's something seemingly completely random just popping up in your head, a word or phrase that's out of nowhere. Like a short, completely benign "intrusive thought" For most people these are accidental memories, phrases they have heard recently, etc For me it is absolutely completely random. I can never find an original source no matter how hard I try *and* hey are in different voices, sometimes ones that I have never heard before

    Oh yeah- mine are normally phrases or quotes from shows even if I haven’t thought of that show or movie much less watched it in years. And it just sticks there. I catch myself typing it sometimes when doing school work and have to go back and delete the mindpop… glad other people get them randomly

    Never heard the term mindpop before, that’s interesting! I get something similar where think of some form of psychological or physiological fact about the human body or any other form of science-related topic for no reason. I’m pretty sure it is related to my interests and hobbies.

    Never quite experienced that, but I am randomly thrust into childhood memories rather often. It's like I don't even get to decide what it is I daydream so intensely about too.

    literally all the time but i also have an issue with tics so i usually convince myself its related to that!
