You walk in and a person you’ve never seen before tells you to go into a small room and starts to stick weird stuff in your ears and tells you to listen to different sounds… Pretty scary right? But that’s not all. To make things worse, your mom gets frustrated because you keep moving and the person performing the test tries to calm you down by making funny faces and asking you more questions while all you want is to get out of that weird room.
