I'm the type of person who gets a lot of spontaneous urges throughout my day, and generally I follow through with them because I think that's what makes life much more interesting. Whether it be to put headphones in and start singing, walk a certain way, randomly sit down in the middle of a store for no reason other than the urge to do so, and standing on a chair, dying my hair. I embarrass my friends from time to time.

Do you have spontaneous urges to do things? What do your spontaneous urges usually include? Do you follow through with them?

I sometimes have the desire to do spontaneous things more days than others, and they'd usually range from little things to smaller things. Littlest being to just falling onto my bed for no reason to a big thing such as dancing in the middle of an isle in a grocery store. Once, as a kid I just dropped to the floor of the mall spontaneously in protest of wanting to go back home because I was tired and hated shopping back then.

If I follow through with them depends solely on how badly the urge is and how daring I may feel depending on how big of a spontaneous action it may be. Overall, I like to keep things spontaneous, because it keeps life interesting.

Whether or not I do it depends on what it is. x:
I generally don't have 'spontaneous urges', though. Actually, there's one exception- despite it being daily (sometimes more or less often), I ignore it 99% of the time.

    I dont like spontanety, it often leads to bad consequences in y experience and I rarely do things just for the heck of it, I might not be a lot of fun but I just dont really like being random.

      If you count cravings as urges, then I have them all the time. Living on my own is so exciting because it means that I can eat what I want when I want, but there are so many things that I've wanted to try but just can't find. There is no octopus anywhere in this city, it seems.

      As for non-food-related urges, most of them are tiny things like "I want to play that game I haven't played in six months" or "I want to listen to Justin Timberlake" (he's got a new song out and it's great). My biggest urge would have to be my urge to play with a big dog.

        I definitely do! A lot of them may include food cravings, but also random things, too! Usually artistic, sometimes just very random like assigning my team at work each a pokemon partner that would suit them best at lunchtime haha!

          At work I picked up the "wet floor" sign-cone thing and sang "Riiiiiicolaaaaa" through it to a nearby coworker. That was just once, though. Sometimes- especially when I'm feeling nervous- I make weird noises with my mouth. I can't exactly describe them through type, though I'd love to perform them for you someday.

            Add "call Syd while at work" to that list, dear.

            I get spontaneous urges to shout Harry Potter spells in the hope that they'll work, but I only follow through with them if I'm alone, and even then I only whisper-yell them instead of actually yelling them because they sound odd in my voice

            I forgot to mention, sometimes when I'm home alone or it's just my sister and I around I'll get the urge to start singing everything I say... loudly. Most of the time it doesn't make sense while all of the time it'll sound terrible.

              I get the spontaneous urge to go pick up a controller and start playing something on one of my systems as soon as I get back home from work even when I'm on the verge of falling unconcious on the stairs again. Hardcore gamer for life I suppose.

                I do some times but don't really act on it most of the time.

                    Sometimes if I'm talking to my crush, I'll just have the urge to tell them I like them. I don't, but you know. :( It's kind of like a "Oh my gosh, they're paying attention to me, we're gonna get married blah blah" thing.

                    Sometimes when I'm talking to people (I don't know why) I'll want to bite their ear or nose or something.

                    I don't know. My brain is weird. I would never for the life of me do those things just because I had the urge, but you know.

                      My urges normally revolve around food and entertainment.

                      With regard to food, I could be pretty much anywhere in the world and still get some ridiculous craving for risotto or an omelette or a steak. It's completely random as to when they'll occur and what foods are involved, but it happens on a not-too-infrequent basis. The weirdest one was pumpkin pie, which happened about a month ago, just before Christmas. It was also the most disappointing, as nowhere in the UK sells it anywhere! It was like having withdrawal symptoms from cocaine or something! (Disclaimer: it actually wasn't; I'm just being dramatic.)

                      With entertainment, normally how it works is that I'll just randomly get the urge to watch a Simpsons episode or buy a specific DVD. Normally this happens when I'm actually DVD shopping but, like food, it can technically happen any time anywhere. Can't remember the last urge of this nature, but it probably wasn't that long ago...
