Perseveration

by on January 13, 2011

I just learned a new word that has now become one that I seem to use every day:   Perseveration.

It means “repetition of the same verbal response or motor activity regardless of the stimuli or its duration; persistence at a task that prevents the individual from turning his attention to new situations”.

For Satomi, it means the repeated the same questions over and over and over after gettings the same answers over and over and over.  It’s the most frustrating thing I could imagine.

It’s driving me nuts!
