http://OnlineClock.net presents: The Most Hated Sounds in the World vs. the Sounds We Like Most!
When we hear an ugly sound The Amygdala, which is the emotional part of the brain, modulates the activity of the auditory part of the brain so that our perception of the negative noise is heightened. This is why ugly sounds seem so intense.
Top Ten Sounds Human Like Least:
10) The Electric Drill
I don't know what I hate worse: having to operate a drill or the mere sound of it.
9) Baby Crying
Guahhh, this is legitimate proof that babies are truly evil bent on world domination.
8) Squeaking Brakes
This awful sign of failure to maintain your car is why my steering wheel has permanent grip marks!
7) Disc Grinder
Oh my god, that's same sound I heard at my last dentist appointment!
6) Female Scream
This scream is only terrible because the lady didn't like my taste in pickup lines!
5) Nails on a Blackboard
I don't understand why this sound is terrible. Back in the day, this was corporeal punishment.
4) Ruler on a Bottle
Augh, who puts a ruler anywhere near a bottle?! Seriously, who?!
3) Chalk on a Black board
Another sound from my childhood's disciplinary portion; who would have thought writing could hurt so good?
2) Fork on a Glass
Surely, one of those independent music kids thought this up. This sound makes the hair on my toes curl.
1) Knife on a Bottle
No! I simply cannot do this!!! We need to escape to...
Top Four Sounds Humans Like Most:
4) Water Flowing
This is such a beautiful sound, but it always makes me want to...
Ah, thunder storms always give me that electric 'sit on the couch and watch tv' feeling
2) Baby Laughing
As evil as those babies are, their laughs are just so darn adorable. Try not to smile. I dare you.
My favorite sound in the entire universe! Praise me, love me, applaud me my peons!
(And now) The Sound Humans Love To Hate the Most:
Online Clock's Alarm Sound: it's an annoying beep beep beep that has been affectionately referred to as "The Sound of Robotic Crickets Mating", but it's effective at getting you up and at 'em, even at lower volume levels.
Good garbled golden nuggets! Someone turn that Alarm off! I'm up already!
