    Maybe there’s a parrot in your family tree somewhere whose genes you inherited.

    I repeat a lot of phrases I've heard from other people and in games a lot, and I also mimic the sounds animals make which I do more often. When I was a kid there was a point where I would just repeat dialogue from the villagers in Animal Crossing and stuff from commercials all the time.

    I like to repeat certain sentences like" my cat is so fat! I would ask my dad" How is he? (The cat) "and he Will answer "fat"
    I am not sure if this is a type of echolalia, but i like to say these things and go back in forth with my dad who also likes it. We have this same convo nearly every day.

    Bright side of having echolalia is i repeat speakers who speak forein languages and repeat and learn the languages like Japanese and Mandarin and speak back with a native accent. Sometimes watching anime subs i like to say Yosh and shikashi!! A favorite word i like saying is Ikibukuro.Yosh means lets go, shikashi means however.

    Echolalia has made it easier for me to learn languages. I started learning Norwegian and Japanese partly because I liked repeating words from those languages, plus doing so makes it so I can pronounce things easily. lol

    Sounds like a certain kid I knew in school. He would go way out of his way just to be in position to torture me.

    When I get depressed, I have a problem of saying "I hate my life!" over and over. I've managed to keep it to myself. People would not react well if they heard it.

    When I'm talking to people, whether it's my health worker or my teacher from college, I often to have to repeat stuff to myself or to them in order for it to sink in. I have to repeat myself twenty or thirty times before it sinks in. I can relate. My teacher in psychology class got fed up with me. My health worker doesn't mind, but my mom gets a bit fed up and irritated. She warns me never to repeat myself to other people in the community or they will reject me harshly or verbally assault me. I'm not sure if it's echolalia, but it might come close.

    When I get stressed, I often have to repeat stuff to myself, certain words or phrases. I have panic attacks, so I end up repeating stuff just to calm myself down.

    I do the same sort of thing, but I keep it mostly in my head. I will almost always repeat any sentence I hear once before moving on to the next, and so on. I usually get “stuck” on some phrase, often the last one I or another person said. Sometimes I have to mouth or whisper the words instead of just thinking them, but usually I don’t actually say them out loud. Not sure if this qualifies as echolalia or not if I don’t often actually say anything.
