@Ver
Actively counting thousands of wallpaper squares make a good job of taking the boredom away. :goodjob:

@Sally
Dat first quirk. Every male in the world approves. xD

@Krissy
Whoa, I got you pegged as a person who would like the silence, lol. Never mind.

@Jess
You're not going to post a quirk, Jess? :P



Quirks:
I...
1) tap out the seconds it takes for a person to reply with a finger/foot, especially when we're face to face. If they take too long, I start narrowing my eyes at them, hahaha.
2) must walk on the lines/cracks or on the tiles. Never on both. @.@

- I bite things when I get bored or nervous. Pens, books, finger nails, my ipod, erasers, chopsticks, pretty much any thing.

I do this too!! But...not pencils or fingernails, and not hard enough to break anything.  I've chewed on my cell phone, hair clips, pillows, blankets, my kid's head (just to tease her), and sometimes my husband comes in to find me gnawing on my desk.  He usually just cocks an eyebrow then backs out of the room.

2) must walk on the lines/cracks or on the tiles. Never on both. @.@

I can't STAND to walk on lines or cracks.  I have to always look down when I'm walking so I can make sure I avoid them.  I take long strides so it doesn't match up with the cracks in the sidewalk and trips me up sometimes.

^ LOL. Cute. *patpats*

@Ver
Did that happen because of some superstition about stepping on lines and cracks or something? o_o

No, I think it's a byproduct of the arithmomania because I tend to count them, too, if I'm not counting my steps.  When I'm driving, I pretend the car is jumping over cracks and shadows in the road, too, and count those.

I have a really screwed up mind...

No, no, I'm screwed up.  I'm so bad that in high school I was borderline schizophrenic.  But it's ok.  After 28 years, I've made peace with it.  And two of my stepdaughters have OCD, so having it myself helps me understand them.  Therefore, I'm glad I do.

And actually, I'm really bad at remembering numbers. 

Oh! But I have a photographic memory! Just not for numbers.

Ahhh, ok. But photographic memory? *jealous*
Does that mean you scored an A+ in everything at school?

Whaaaa... *jealous too* No fair! >:(

Hmmm this is hard...

-If I am listening to a group of people having a conversation and I am not taking part in it, I start typing out the conversation with my fingers on an imaginary keyboard... >.> *too much time on the computer* Jeez, sometimes I catch myself doing this when watching movies!

-I'm a nail biter too, but whenever I'm REALLY nervous I HAVE to chew gum. I carry it everywhere!

-I can't stand loose change. Whenever I have it, I randomly drop coins onto the sidewalk or into fountains. Or on shelves... Just as long as the change is dropped. (Plus, seeing a little kid pick up a stray penny makes me happy! ^^) Change is too jangly.

-I don't wear nailpolish because I really can't. T_T I fuss over it too much, and one little chip or something uneven = *RAGE* lolol

-I can't stand when people read the ending of a book first or skip parts. Consequently, I can't NOT finish a book once it has been started. No matter how horrible it is...

I think that's all for now, but I'm positive that there's more. XD

Nooooo.  I actually developed it instead of being born with it.  My memory used to be really bad, and then I realized that if something was really interesting to me, I would remember it exactly so I somehow figured out how to control it.  I can take pictures of things in my head if I know I'll need to recall it.  And I can pull it up like looking at a photo album.  If my husband asks me something I'll say, "wait, let me pull it up" and start going through the "pictures" until I find the one I need.  If I'm staring at something with glassy eyes, he knows I'm taking a picture lol.

-I can't stand loose change. Whenever I have it, I randomly drop coins onto the sidewalk or into fountains. Or on shelves... Just as long as the change is dropped. (Plus, seeing a little kid pick up a stray penny makes me happy! ^^) Change is too jangly.

This is really cute!

-I can't stand when people read the ending of a book first or skip parts. Consequently, I can't NOT finish a book once it has been started. No matter how horrible it is...

I'm the same way! Well, mostly.  I have indeed stopped a couple books in the middle because they were irritating me and making me angry, but mostly I have to finish them.  For movies and TV series, though, I have a tendency of looking it up on Wikipedia first so I know how it ends.  That way when I get really nervous that it's not going the way I want, I can remind myself how it will end.  I have no idea why I like this for movies but hate it for books.

I do this too! When I'm listening to a lecturer or something, I imagine typing out every word he says. And I type it in rhythm.

Quirks everywhere~

some of mine:
- When I listen to music I imagine myself diving in and I try separating the individual instruments. It is really amazing n-n
- When I don't do that I start tapping with my fingers or feet on the beat. Side-effect of playing the base maybe...
- When I'm thinking I chew on my fingers, pens or pencils.
- I paint a background for a painting and then put it on display on my easel in my room to be tormented by not being quite sure how to finish it off. (there are currently 2 canvasses with backgrounds staring at me, part of a duo I'm trying to create)
 When I think of more, you'll know~

thanks to Shineshan <3
