On occasion I'll be typing out long paragraphs and distracted or zoned out to where it's almost like my fingers are typing on their own. There is nothing unusual about this, I think most typists can get in a flow where it feels like this. What I find interesting is every so often I'll look back and find a single word in the middle of a sentence that not only doesn't fit or match, but is also a word that I wasn't even consciously thinking of.
Previously, I wouldn't think anything of it and laugh, but it has me contemplating if this could be considered a natural form of ideomotor movement (or another ideo word)?
*IF* that is the case, this is likely an fairly unexplored area.
Has anyone noticed this before? Used it on purpose? Any insights?
I can't say that I really Ice cold beer mmmm have noticed this in my typing, but my mind does tend to wander on occasion.
I am not sure if i would LET the added word here or there in my typing get ME thinking abOUT ideomotor typing. However if you LET your mind MEander as you type who knows what might come OUT.
Personally I would LET it bother ME unless you are OUT to convince yourself that your mind is trying to tell you something.
I think I feel a headache coming out..........
Sounds like the keyboard version of a parapraxis (Freudian slip).
The word dosen't fit or match what?
Is it semantically or syntactically incorrect?
Can you give an example?
I don't have a good example right now as it's been a while since it's happened but it may looking something like:
"Throughout history, man snow had only one thing on his mind"
the obvious word here is snow and has nothing to do with the sentence and sounds nothing like "has". It's unrelated and just there. My fingers are doing it for me.
Further clarification, this was a fake example, but if it were real, the word snow would not have been even remotely on my mind at the time and I wouldn't have known why or that I typed it until I looked.
Simply, writing is hypnotic and when we engage hypnotically we tap into creative (subconscious) levels that have little to do with rationality and that's why, when we really suck big time, we aren't even aware of it!
Wait a minute, did I just write that? It must have been my Evil Other Part.
Perhaps it's one of those post-hypnotic-suggestions taking possession.
You never know lol.
To be honest, I am actually surprised no one else has experienced this. Maybe over time more eyes will find this post.
