Bizarre words: Aprosexia

It seems almost too mean to ask fellow WordPress writers to “work it in” with this word! There are actually three words defined here. I’m still trying to decide which one I am but am leaning toward paraprosexia!! How about you?

Aprosexia is an abnormal inability to pay attention, characterized by near-complete indifference to everything. Opposite is hyperprosexia, meaning to concentrate on one thing to the exclusion of everything else. And, paraprosexia, means the inability to pay attention to any one thing (a state of constant distraction). ~ Source: brownielocks
