Anyone else put in headphones with absolutely no intention of listening to anything, just to make people less likely to bother you?

    Having misophonia, nothing seems to help. Especially in an office.

    I put them on because even if I dont listen to music the outside sound is kinda muffled, which helps :p

    It's better to use your phone microphone. If you are listening to music, you can be bothered. If you are on the phone or in a teleconference, you can't.

    A few times I made believe I was in a phone conversation - with myself.

    @joaonunes I do this quite a bit, sometimes I'll go 3-4 hours of wearing them with no music and then realize I haven't had music playing. Also I inadvertently discovered that it was a good eavesdropping tool...

    And when they walk up to my desk I point at a random part of my screen and say without raising my eyes "oooh kinda in the middle of something urgent here, buddy"

    This!

    I keep them on to reduce the chances of a co worker who is a PM from asking me questions

    I always put on my headphone when my boss around. It's better than listening to some bullshit.
