I just found a new one: compliments make me work harder, because I don't believe I deserve them. 

When someone compliments me, I don't think, "yay! I did something good!" I think, "Shit.  I need to live up to that expectation."

Example: I cleaned all the SFX out of Switch Girl 45 because Kuri told me to try. Kiriane told me my redraws were really good, and now I feel compelled to clean every single SFX out of every SG chapter, no matter how painful it may be.  And I went from being lazy about redraws to "THEY MUST NOT KNOW IT WAS EVER THERE" about them.

 *dead

But I still think my redraws suck and keep putting notes in like "YOU'D BETTER COVER THIS BECAUSE IT'S CRAP."

HAHA! Blatant lies don't work.  I am well aware that my editing is slooooow.  Please see above about newfound perfectionism...

Dunno if this is a strange quirk but when im trying to. o something, i tend to "forget" it in 5 mins. and remember it a few mins or hrs later.

Ex. Mom asked me to buy vinegar but just when i was out of the gate,,i forgot what i was gonna buy. Took me about 3 mins to remember what it was  :swt:

LOL  I do that a lot.  So I now "carve" things I need to remember on my forearm with my finger.  By visualizing it actually being carved in my skin, it's making it a permanent reminder until I complete the task.  Every time I look at my arm, I'm suddenly reminded of the thing.  It's a little morbid, but it works really well. 

Once I've completed the task, I "wipe" it clean like a slate, running my hand over and imagine it smoothing out.  If I don't do that, I'll subconsciously remember that there's something carved there but can never remember what - always a sign that I've completed it. 

It's a very psychological technique, but that's what makes it so effective!

I think everybody has that at times. I run downstairs to get something and then I can't recall what I was going to get. When I go back up again it comes back to me... >:(

Wow Ver! You're really attuned to yourself. I think it comes with age.
Not that I'm saying your old or anything. You just have more wisdom and experience so you know what works for you.

But I do the same thing about forgetting things. I'll walk into a room and not know what I was going to do there. Usually I can remember after a minute or two xP

My dad has this really strange quirk, It's funny, he would walk into a room. I'd be in the living room, or basement, or anywhere really and he look around, look at me, and then walk away. He does it to everyone. Even my mom xP

We think its psychological partial-unconscious thing where he is "checking" in on everyone. But it's still funny xP
