@jessmahler that makes sense to me, it can have a "i'm taking this all in" feel to it at times, for sure.
What I've found most of the time is that people let me know if it stands out to them, and it's usually ok. The boss was kind of an exception (and was "quirky" themselves, in some way or another, so who knows). So maybe wait and see how people respond and what questions come up? Most of the social problems I've had were because of not getting the rules, not because of echolalia, fwiw.
Other forms of echolalia? Yeah, possible. It's not like they scale from "a little" to " a lot", necessarily. More like they're a general linguistic set of patterns.
