The problem with my music listening habit

No wonder my favorites don't last for more than a few hours. I would have heard it a hundred times by then.

Why does "Have it?" (NO) feed back to step 1?

@thinktank: Its a part of the problem.. I keep looking for new songs to listen to..

You should probably replace "Have it?" with "Is this a song that appeals to me?". Seems like your graph would then better convey the intended meaning :)

@thinktank: Possibly :)

But, the "Have it" state is supposed be like a timer interrupt which wakes me from the "wait" state to find out if I have a new favorite song.

And I cannot really have a "Is this a song that appeals to me?" after the "Wait for a new favorite song" section breaks, because that would break only when I had a new favorite song :)

Your suggested state can be added before the wait state along with a search :)

I think we're both largely thinking the same thing.. My idea was this-"Wait for a new favorite song" is a state where one part of you is constantly listening to different songs while another part is "waiting" for that "new favorite song". "Have it?" is a state when that 2nd part of you realizes that the song you just listened to you is your new candidate favorite song. So, in my head, "Have it?" => "Do I have my new favorite song?" => "Is this a song that appeals to me?". So, I suggested that as a replacement for "Have it?"... :)
