Nervous Habits
Do you have any nervous habits you're conscious of? I know that I play with my hair when I'm tired, mostly, but sometimes when I'm nervous. I'm only really aware of it because my mom always yells at me for it. D:

But I'm in class right now, and this guy next to me has been shaking his leg like no tomorrow. I'm okay if people wave it around a little, but he's going full on epileptic shaking and it's really annoying the piss out of me. So it makes me wonder, does he even know he's doing it?

Do you guys have habits like these?

This isn't entertainment related, and is a poll, so I'mma move it to OVP now.

Moving on up

I do fidget when I am nervous yeah.

When I am assessing a situation while sitting down, I overlay and bridge my hands in front of my mouth. Sometimes I'm nervous while assessing but not always.

I bite or pick at my lips, or shake my leg when I'm nervous.

My god, I HATE when people do this. This drives me crazy! Because they never seem to realize that not only can I feel it from the floor, IT'S SHAKING MY ENTIRE DESK!

As for me, I tend to drum my fingers a bit. Other than that, I just internally freak out, but then when I get the test or whatever, I'm fine.

Normally whenever i'm nervous my hands and feets become cold and i drum with my fingertips on the closest desk or table....tbh i sometimes shake my legs too but it sure annoys as i always stop whoever sitting nearby me and doing that

When I'm nervous I tend to get very energetic, twitchy, and uncontrollable. During work I literally stood up and danced for two hours straight because I had a lot of energy (I don't drink much caffeine). I also shake my leg violently during class because I can't stand up or anything and I need to burn energy. I hardly can control it and if I try to it just makes me uncomfortable.

Also when I have these bursts of energy they last a few hours and give me an urge to fight. Also I bite the inside of my cheek.

I have a ton of them. Some common ones include messing with my teeth, playing with my hair, earings or other such things, fidgetting, etc. I get nervous a lot ^^;

Ralaia October 31st, 2012 6:07 PM

Ughhhh.... lets see:
1. Bite fingernails.
2. Watery eyes which looks like I'm crying.
3. My voice gets really deep. ;(

sometimes I shut up, and twitch my eyes when I'm nervous at other times I speak in a really low voice make sarcastic comments.

Shining Raichu November 1st, 2012 6:53 AM

I love that you're making OVP threads while you're in class XD. That's just so awesome that that's your go-to thing. "This guy is annoying me, so I'm gonna make an OVP thread about it!" lmao

I generally internalise a lot, so if I'm nervous then you won't know it on the outside, but I'll be ****ting bricks on the inside. I try very hard not to be expressive with fear because fear is embarrassing and I'd prefer people didn't know I was feeling it :P. So I don't really have any nervous habits, at leat none that I'm aware of.

Hikamaru November 1st, 2012 6:59 AM

I usually shake a bit when I'm nervous.

Sometimes I even suck my thumb, which I have been doing since I was a little kid.

Galukxy November 1st, 2012 10:01 AM

I noticed this recently. I bite my lip a lot when I'm nervous or I play with whatever's in my hands at the time, like pencils or pens.

Wateria November 1st, 2012 10:22 AM

If I am nervous I would normally bite my tongue.

PlatinumDude November 1st, 2012 11:00 AM

I shake one or both of my legs when I'm seated. Sometimes I twirl my pen(cil) around my fingers when I'm doing a test.

TwilightBlade November 1st, 2012 1:28 PM

-puts hand on leg and holds leg still-

What do I do with all my energy/adrenaline now that I stopped shaking my leg? :'( When I'm nervous, I experience increased heart rate, sweaty palms, shakiness, and dry mouth. Sometimes, my eyelid starts to twitch, but maybe that is more related to caffeine or stress rather than nervousness.

Carter November 1st, 2012 4:01 PM

I tend to violently shake my leg or scratch my middle finger when I get nervous.

Sheep November 1st, 2012 5:48 PM

I shake my leg when I'm nervous. Also, I've recently developed a habit where I yawn or look through my bag. ]: They're so hard to stop but at least I've been noticing when I do it lately.

Brynjolf November 1st, 2012 5:51 PM

I hold my own hands. And I sweat, and pull split ends off my hair. Not very good habits if you ask me.
I should make a habit of going to the hairdresser more so I can get the split ends off, actually.
Another thing I do is bite the inside of my cheek.

WinterToyota November 2nd, 2012 7:50 PM

Well, I do tend to bite stuff from time to time. I guess there's that. ^_^

Made my day.

On to the topic. When I'm nervous, I play with my hair, fiddle with my thumbs, and lick my lips from time to time. I usually don't show my nervousness, because I like to be called brave, but sometimes I just can't help it.

Crux November 2nd, 2012 11:51 PM

The mods? I can only imagine they're watching in a way similar to this.
(just kidding,much love guys)

Eeh....I....pace. >…<
Yeah,yeah,I know...i've already gotten a lot of complaints/tease/ridicule from it. :<
Luckily I don't generally become that nervous though!

Twilight Sky November 9th, 2012 3:04 PM

My legs do shake a lot, but I tend to pace around nervously as well. Other than that, I think I can keep my Anxiety under control a lot, but there are other times where it's obvious that I'm stressed.

Cassino November 9th, 2012 6:24 PM

I don't have 'nervous' habits nor do I understand the concept personally.

CourageHound November 9th, 2012 6:49 PM

I pace....alot (Like to the point where people get annoyed of seing me just walk back and forth) when I'm thinking about something hard but i wouldnt really call it a nervous habit per se
