What are your strange quirks?
« on: July 06, 2013, 21:11 »
quirk   [kwerk]   noun
  • A peculiar behavioural habit:    "his annoying quirks"
(dictionary.com)

You know how some people do certain things in a certain way, and they think they're the only one in the world who does it? Well, they're wrong because chances are, out of the billions out there, there's always someone as strange as you. :D
You are not alone. Let's hope not.

So... In an effort to get to know each other more, post a quirk! As many as you like. :) Just don't double post. Don't be afraid to share your weirdness. Embrace it!



One of my quirks is that if I happen to be eating chips while on the computer, I use chopsticks instead of my hands. It's easier. I don't have to get food all over my laptop and I don't have to keep wiping off my hands/washing 'em. I also get to work on my chopstick kung fu.

What are your strange quirks?

Is that the only way you can concentrate or...? o_o
Also, I'm curious but does that happen in school as well? Like if you have a study period or something?

If I don't listen to music while studying for school I forget half the things I read...I fluff rape my animals.  :=D:

I hate spicy things but I LOVE flaming hot cheetos.

I won't get on a boat unless it's my uncles boat.

I chew on my fingernails ~ like i play with the nail in my mouth after I've bitten it off.  :swt:

I won't touch a lawnmower with a ten foot pole.  :indotz:

Whenever I eat pickles I suck out the inside stuff and eat the skin last.

There's more but I can't think of them right now xD

LOL Roze.  Some of those are cutely gross.

I have severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and (thankfully mild) ADD.  So I have a LOT of quirks.  I'll just list a couple of the stranger ones...

1.) Since I lose focus on things quickly, I break everything I do into chunks and alternate them.  For instance, tonight, I'm washing small batches of dishes and alternating it with typesetting Migawari 16, reading manga, checking the forum, and doing other chores.  In rotation.

2.) I have a problem with many organic textures.  Some of them are:
- Things that remind me of worms or wiggle around (spaghetti, for instance)
- Anything squishy
- Bloated, smooth, or swollen things
- Raw meat and torn flesh
- This:

3.) I narrate everything I do and hold conversations in my head with people before those conversations happen (I plan out what we'll both say).  Also, if I plan to say something and don't get to, I'll keep repeating it in my head until I get it out.  This does indeed make me that annoying person who can't let conversations drop.  I hate that, but I can't do anything about it.  Sometimes writing it down helps.

4.) I have gerascophobia - the fear of old age.  I'm petrified of getting old and my body failing, and old people creep me out.  Touching old people's skin makes me feel gross.  My mom thinks this makes me a terrible person.

5.) I have anxiety disorder and agoraphobia and some days have trouble leaving the house.

6.) I am an empath - I feel other people's emotions as if they were my own.  THAT sure sucked during puberty...  I also read people's minds.  Not intentionally; I didn't even know I could do it until multiple boyfriends pointed it out.  BUT being able to know so much about everyone around me makes it difficult to be out in public places; hence #5.

Don't know if I could call these quirks but

1. Suddenly screaming in the bathroom for no apparent reason.

2. Head banging the wall

3. I usually study while sitting on the floor

4. Dat moment where your just staying still and then you suddenly do the macaroni dance or other schimemabob dances.

5. when theres a mirror behind me I tend to SLOWLY look at the back like some character in a horror movie that turns around to see if someones there then suddenly a creep or some scary monster appears.

Ahahaha For this reason, I always turn around really quickly.

Roze. xD That little nail chewing bit took it to new levels.

And whoa. New facts about Ver. That organic texture thing was super interesting.

@Pau
Do you mean the Macarena? I don't know what the Macaroni dance is but it sounds awesome. Also, I think you should start wearing a helmet and stop watching horror movies. o_o



Quirk: Counting things in the height of boredom, especially when I have to stay still for long periods of time. Be it floor tiles, cracks, leaves, spots, lines, sometimes even the bricks on a wall.
The most I've ever counted was 8,902 squares on a wallpaper. And that was pure counting.

Hahaha I pictured her wiggling around like a piece of cooked macaroni.

Dang.  I've never counted anything that high and I have arithmomania (compulsive counting).  Steps, rocks, etc.  But then since I don't consciously do it, I end up starting over midway.  It would drive me nuts to actively count wallpaper squares!

I like to stare at girls shaking their butts and bouncing their boobs.
I also like to tell spoiler alert, or something that I think might happen.
I used to add random beautiful people on my facebook/myspace/twitter/whatever...well...i still do....only with twitter/myspace. Because myspace is dead, it doesn't matter anymore. And twitter is just followers/following, so that's gud. ^^

- I can only ever remember phone numbers and addresses in Cantonese.
- I stare at anything or anyone that looks interesting and trace the shapes in my mind.
- If I'm listening to music while I'm walking, I have to walk to the beat no matter how fast or slow it is. I've tried to not follow the beat but it's impossible for me.
- I make random noises when I get bored or it's too quiet.
- I call my dog "kitty"
- I bite things when I get bored or nervous. Pens, books, finger nails, my ipod, erasers, chopsticks, pretty much any thing.
