I am who I am!
What makes us quirky makes us unique. What makes us unique makes us special. And that which makes us special is what are greatest attribute.... well, maybe most unique things. Somethings maybe just a touch of odd. An odd can be fun. Right?
I can't read the description of someone winking in a book without winking myself. MauveBeardThePirate
Why did I wink as I read that? Astranautic
Why lick there?
I can lick my own elbow and I love bragging about it. I'm an adult and it's nothing to brag about. My arms and hands are flexible but I'm pretty much a brick otherwise. Tongue is regular lol Saussureious
I like to put smooth rocks into my mouth. When I was child and placed everything I saw into my mouth lol. I probably continued cause I liked the texture? I have no clue. Strangest thing but for some reason, uneven rocks are "dirty" while smooth rocks are "clean." I know both are probably equally disgusting even if I wash them but that's just how my brain works. I'd never suck on an uneven rock. ZyraThePotato
I'm very jumpy and when i get startled when someone/something suddenly touches me, i yell OWW. I don't know why because it's not like it hurts. PietNederwiet
I say ow if anything unexpected happens brush a wall "ow that hurt" step on a marble "damn oww" and it's always followed by an inner monologue of "what the hell? that didn't hurt dummy." Michael_chipz
I will sometimes get an itch on my scalp which hits a nerve when I scratch, forcing me to do a fast like tremor of my head. My eyes close and I make a crazy face. It's like I have a mini seizure.
Dunno why I've just always done. SuddenTerrible_Haiku
I like to have two beverages with my meals, one of them has to be water. So it'll be coffee and a water, soda and a water, etc. It's just how I like it, and I have no idea why, but my meal doesn't feel complete otherwise.
Edit: Well I'll tell ya, I've been told I'm weird for this just as long as I've been doing it, so it's nice to know I'm definitely not all that weird. It just makes sense to me to do it like this, so hey - thanks everyone! MamieJoJackson
Secondhand embarrassment produces an actual physical cringe for me. I have a hard time even watching movies with awkward situations. It's like reverse ASMR for me, where seeing embarrassment or awkwardness actually makes my neck tingle, but in the most unpleasant way. melocoton_helado
I don't do it very often anymore, but sometines after a rainy day, I pick up snails I find on the road and carry them to safety. Is this weird?
As I was walking along and reading and responding to these wonderful comments with my brother, I almost stepped on a snail. Luckily, I managed to stop in time and we carried it to safety. Guys, don't text and walk. It might be a trivial matter to you, but for snails, it's a matter of life and death. Tannic64
Loud in a Row....
My sneeze attacks are usually 10-20 in a row. For some reason people get weirdly upset by it. tikidon
Personally, I think, that it entirely depends on the volume that you reach. In my family the sneezes are short but very violent, so every sneeze will leave a lasting impression. numerousiceballs
I Can Explain....Giphy
I sometimes explain things to myself I already know. But it's more like I'm lecturing an audience, like a professor or something. Proved to be quite useful sometimes as I'm mostly prepared to give fluent answers yet its sometimes weird catching yourself standing in the bathroom and explaining to yourself what exactly the third impact was and how it worked. Larzelot
What's in a Name?
No matter how hard I try, I cannot remember names. Don't take it as an insult if I forget yours I literally forgot my middle name for a year until I looked at my passport and was surprised. FrozenChurchillian
I have a bad habit of collecting bottle caps on my desk. Ever since I did an art project involving them I just keep them there. They keep piling up and I clear them off every week. doggies11
I feel your sorrow. I used to collect Coke codes back when that was till a thing. After they cancelled the program, I find myself noticing bottle caps I can pick up from recycle bins. I guess my brain is still subconsciously looking for them. II_Confused
My internal monologue is entirely second person because when it's in the first person my brain screams at me.
I feel exposed if my legs and arms aren't covered and I'm not wearing a hat. LittleRedLamps
If I really enjoy the food I'm eating, I'll slightly shake my fork/spoon up and down between bites.
It kinda pisses my wife off for some reason but I'm not mad, I'm able to successfully compliment her cooking even when it sucks. freesincemybirth96
Haha! I dance when I eat stuff I like. It may be a head bob, a shimmy, or a full body wave. But if I like the food, I can't help but dance. SunshineSaysSo
I have a lot, but the weirdest is that I can make my fingers seize to the point that they're basically vibrating. I have to scrunch them up like I'm holding onto an invisible object and then tense them in a specific way. I don't know how to explain it.
When I was a kid, I would do it whenever I got really excited. Even now, when I get a burst of happiness or excitement, I have to do something with my hands.
Making my fingers seize takes a lot of energy, so my body's natural reaction was to put all my energy in my hands.
If enough people were interested, I would take a video and upload it, but most people get wigged out when I do it for them. It's a little freaky, but I've been told it would work well in a horror movie. matiuhhh
Use your Words...
I have so many ways to word one sentence that I scramble over my words and the fact I start crying when I'm super mad or stressed. metaaltheanimefan
I had that problem in my mother tongue as well, but weirdly it got a lot better once I learned English. Having a limited vocabulary really restricted me and made it a lot easier to write sentences. numerousiceballs
Yawns are especially contagious to me. Typing this out made me yawn, people yawning in comics make me yawn, advertisements about sleepiness on trains make me yawn, the word yawn makes me yawn. I yawned 3 times in total typing this out. KimKenji
An Apple a day....Giphy
Thinking of or even watching anyone eat apples with their skins gives me the chills. KaptainKompost
Use your Ears....
I can make my ears rumble and click. You know how when pressure increases you need to unplug your ears? It doesn't affect me at all.
Edit: this is the ability to control you tensor tympani muscle. Someone has put a link to a subreddit down below :) GrayReads
I can make my ears rumble and click too, but pressure still affects me. You lucky fool. Beast_of_Bladenboro
I talk to myself out loud when I'm alone. Not like have conversations with myself, but say I'm looking in the fridge I'll say "Dammit I'm out of milk. I should have bought some yesterday while I was out" instead of saying nothing like a normal person. I do this a lot... might be because I'm alone a lot and I find the noise comforting? Not sure.
Also I pick up and play with insects when I find them. jamescweide
When you're a kid most adults will tell you one thing or another is "cool" and "fun." Odds are you're too young to form any kind of opinion on the matter one way or another. You're a kid, right? You don't know what you're eating for breakfast. However, when you get older and form that larger worldview, you realize that yeah, maybe that one time when you were a kid actually wasn't fun.
These are those stories.
