This Is What Your Bad Habits Really Say About Your Personality

We all have those annoying little habits that we do without even noticing. But did you know these little things can say a lot about your personality. We've taken a few of the most common so you can see exactly what they say about you.

What Your Habits Say About Your Personality

Touching your hair

You do it so often that you don't even notice you're doing it. But if you can't stop touching your hair whilst you're talking to somebody, for example, it could mean that you have a desire to keep the outside world at a distance. This habit is common among introverts as a way to reassure yourself or to manage stress. It can also be seen as flirty if you're doing it on a date.

Biting your lip

Biting your upper lip is a sign of stress or sadness. Biting your lower lip, on the other hand, can be seen as an erotic gesture which suggests a desire to charm.

Biting your nails

Especially common among young people, about 1 in 3 people either bite or pick their nails. It's often linked to stress or anxiety but also to boredom and lack of self-esteem.

Cracking your knuckles

Cracking your knuckles is often used to relieve anxiety or tension, as the "click" sound can have a calming, satisfying effect. And despite what you might have heard, it has never been proven that cracking your knuckles can lead to arthritis.

Fiddling with objects

If you can't stop yourself from fiddling with things whilst you're talking to someone, whether that's peeling the label off a bottle or tearing up a paper napkin, this suggests that you have some kind of instability, stress or feeling that you are misunderstood. It can also suggest sexual frustration.
