I just had the weirdest feeling where the word "response" completely lost all meaning to me.

I googled it, and apparently this is called semantic satiation.

Huh, never happened to me before.. I hope the memory of the word response returns to me because though I'm not sure why I feel like it's important.

    Happens all the time to me, but never knew it had a name - thanks! 🙃

    Any time you forget how to spell a word, or if a word starts to sound weird when you say it, it's the same effect.

    It usually means you're stressing yourself out on something and should take a momentary break.

    means you're tunnelvisioned on a slightly connected topic. get some reat or water or something - just take a minute to step away
