Like playing a certain game or a couple of games over and over and over again, or watch a movie multiple times, etc for no apparent reason (not like Fable, where the storyline changes, I am talking about a static game like Zelda: Ocarina of Time, or Breath of Fire III)

I would mention music too, but I don't know if that is too different to listen to the same song for hours and hours on end.

But do you do something like this? And if so, what is it?

I repeat the same word over and over again. I also like to put a song on repeat and listen to it for the duration of my travel, if I am really into it.

I make repetitive sounds. Get fixated on a few syllables, like "dikatadidakadikatadidaka" and just go on and on. Sometimes for an hour if I'm alone.

Yes, I'll play certain video games over and over listen to the same song for hours and watch various anime episodes/series over again as well.

I like to listen to music that I know and watch movies over and over. I also repeat things in my head (frustrating!! !). If I don't know the music, I get a headache and it makes me really nervous and antsy. I can watch new movies but it always takes me a time or two more watching it to understand the whole thing.

I used to watch movies over and over. Same with some songs. It drove my mom nuts when we went on road trips :lol:

I tend to get phrases from movies or parts of songs stuck on a loop in my head. It's really annoying when it's a song I can't stand!

When I was around 7 years old, my dad gave me an old lawn mower engine to play with. I'd spend hours sitting in the living room taking it apart and putting it back together over and over.

Yes. I watch the same movies/youtube videos over and over again. I solve my Rubik's Cube over and over again. I listen to the same song on repeat for hundreds of times until I find a new one and do the same with that one. I get phrases stuck in my mind and I often quote things from movies and TV-series, multiple times. Etc.

I thrive on repeating things.

I have nonsense syllables running through my head or bits of songs or movie lines. I like to play games over and over, even if I have already solved them. I watch the same movies over and over and read some favorite books over and over, too. If I am not careful, I can repeat myself over and over too, which people find annoying because they think that I am implying that they are stupid. :oops:

Yes all the time i will tell someone the same thing i just told that person a few minutes ago then that person tells me "yeah you just told me" thats when things get awkward. :oops: I sometimes tend to do it because I think the person did not recieve the message so I say it again. I also repeat the same things over and over again when I am talking to myself too. :lol: Yeah I am weird. If there is a song I like or is stuck in my head that I like i will listen to it over and over and over again all day.

Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes.

Left to my own devices, I will eat the same thing most everyday. I wear the same type of clothes all the time. I watch the same films over and over. I listen to certain music over and over. I say the same things over and over…
