There's a student in one of my classes who has two problems - he can't stand a quiet room and he doesn't realize when people aren't listening to him. End result, he wanders around randomly talking to people (it's a design class so it's allowed, to a point) and will stand there talking for an hour if you let him. He doesn't take hints, if you ask him politely he thinks you're kidding, and the only way to shut him down is to be rude. If you try walking away, he'll follow you.
It's at the point now that nobody in the class can stand him, and one girl is slightly afraid of him since he followed her all the way to her car one night. The professor is aware of it, but he's having a hard time getting it through to him either. The kid is at least aware enough to know that he has to not talk when the prof is lecturing, but once we start working, it's open season on everyone in the room.
it sounds like he's really lonely imo....not many real friends, and i bet he considers people he talks to his friends even though they really can't stand him. i knew someone like that....there was something wrong with him (but i forget what it was....sorry). probably the professor could refer him to a counsellor....that might help if he actually goes.
