Most of the ones on the list and I also play with my jewellery and lip ring.

I do fidget sometimes generally I can stop myself. I smile more when I'm under stress (like being interviewed) but I don't think that comes across too badly.
posted 5-Dec-2001 11:35am  
What if I do any of these, but they are not nervous habits, I just do them? Whistling, nail biting, vertebrate popping, and foot tapping I do all for other reasons. It feels god to pop the vertebrates, whistling is fun, and being ADHD, I'm usually moving, like tapping my foot. Grinding teethe and nail biting are just bad habits.
I do fidget with my shirt if I'm nervous.

sighing, fidgeting, rolling my eyes when I am annoyed

Oh, yeah, and playing with my necklace. I slide the gold"J" back and forth.

I'm a huge fidgeter. If I have drawstring pants on, I will sit there rolling and unrolling the ends of the drawstrings.
posted 5-Dec-2001 2:39pm  
D: All of the above.

I'm a very nervous person.
I don't bite my nails anymore, I just pick them.
posted 5-Dec-2001 2:46pm  
I tend to rapidly move a leg, either one, while sitting down, my leg is balanced on the ball of my foot and I sort of move my heel up and down. I don't think it is a nervous thing though. I've never seen a female do this, but once at a university cafeteria I counted 5 other guys doing the same thing under the tables.

Okay, I constantly shake/tap my foot and fidget. I play with my hair when I'm board, and I bite my lip when I am upset.

Good Survey

somebody once told me the leg-shaking thing was a masturbation-replacement thing..... I don't know but I've noticed lots of guys do it!
posted 5-Dec-2001 9:41pm  
I do some of these when I'm bored.
When I'm nervous...I just pretend I'm the Queen of Fudging Everything.
Fools people every time.

Just about all of those! I'm very high strung.
In job interviews I really have to concentrate on not biting my nails.

I stutter when I'm nervous, usually because I'm trying to get all of my words out in a hurry before people lose interest in what I'm saying.
(reply to Cain) posted 6-Dec-2001 8:20am  
I do that, too! And I blend words together. And then my boyfriend laughs at me and I get SO MAD!
Like, I would make "so mad" "smad" and he would go, "Smad? What the hell is smad?"
(reply to jkiehart) posted 6-Dec-2001 10:22am  
The other thing I do is when I'm nervous, and I can't decide between two words to use in a sentence, so I manage to make a combination of the two. Like if I want to say 'When I'm (either nervous or scared)I stutter' and I'll say scervous. It's amusing if nothing else.
(reply to Cain) posted 6-Dec-2001 12:34pm  
Yep. Me too! And when I do that, I'm generally already "riled up," and it's not a time I can laugh at myself or take a joke.
(reply to Miaow) posted 6-Dec-2001 12:38pm  
It couldn't be a masturbation replacement thing, let me tell you. Maybe it's additional to masturbation? smiley:::wink
(reply to Biggles) posted 6-Dec-2001 12:40pm  
I've never seen a girl do it. You butch thing you. smiley:::wink

None, but i used to have some of these, let me try to recall, ok: fidgeting, pacing, and laughing under stress (not so hot when your freind is trying to tell you about some tragedy they are experiencing)
posted 7-Dec-2001 8:04am  
Oh, I do smoke when under stress. I don't really get nervous anymore, but i still get stressed.
posted 7-Dec-2001 8:19pm  
I'm not nervous.

Damn, I'm nervous. Shouldn't drink any coffee at all. Ever.

I thought the cat food is called Whiskas? Well, I dunno.
posted 10-Dec-2001 8:48pm  
I'm sure I have them but I can't think of any right now. I used to suck on my hair when I was in 4th grade. Very nasty!

Boy!!!I guess I'm a total mess!!!

When feeling anxious I have a tendancy to scratch my legs, especially at night.
posted 11-Dec-2001 8:30pm  
I lick my lips too much.
posted 12-Dec-2001 1:18am  
I'm generally a calm person, however, I bite the inside of my mouth on occasion, which is a nervous habit. I've had this habit since my youth.
posted 12-Dec-2001 5:20pm
