I was wondering: does anybody spin around in circles listening to music with headphones on? Is this how you like to listen to music? I wanna know if I'm the only aspie who spins around listening to music (sure hope not). Confused

I would, well I spin around loads, but I normally have my headphones plugged into my PC so I can't spin.

No, but when I was younger, I would spin in circles, but not with music.

just the thought of it makes me dizzy. but i rock and bob and weave when listening to music. viewers of the movie "the wild parrots of telegraph hill" can see the protagonist's pet parrot weaving appreciatively when its caretaker played a rock and roll song on his guitar. i weave a lot like that pet parrot.

I don't listen to music with headphones on, but I will walk in a tight circle while listening to music on my computer. I often need to let my legs do something.

i sometimes involuntarily stomp my feet and bandy my legs about on music with an especially infectious rhythmic groove going on.

When I was younger, I spun in circles all the time, whether there was music or not.

I've always spun, but not to music. However, I keep meaning to try Sufi dancing, which is basically that, only not with headphones. Laughing

I don't do spinning, but I always up for some nice soothing gentle rocking/body swaying.

But my twin who is also Aspergic likes to spin around. She digs that shit.


Supposedly spinning in circles can help balance something, but know I can't remember if it was to do with the thyroid or brain stuff, iunno.
