I have a compulsion to extend tape measures as far as they'll go before bending under their own weight.

I like how the bottom of my nose feels on my lip.

there ya go.
that's weird.
the reason it's weird is because to get your lip up to your nose you have to make a crazy weird face...so it's not something to be enjoyed in public.

I tried doing this, but it didn't last long because I laughed and my lip couldn't stay up anymore.

I count stairs (not so much any more)
I say "we" when talking to myself
I've been sort of shrugging one shoulder or the other unconsciously as a weird quirk lately. As if my shirt is stuck under my armpit...though perhaps that is the reason
I count how long it takes me to do things at work so that I can do them quicker
I go on stewoo

I count stairs too. Sometimes other things. Usually if something is taking awhile. I even count to pass the time (like if I need to wait a few minutes before doing something, I might count in my head while I'm doing it).

I can't pass by a mirror and glance in it at night time when the room is dark in case I see something scary standing behind me. I have to avert my eyes. I am ok once the light is switched on however.

i read books not by pages or chapter, but by percentages. that may not be so quirky in the ebook era, but a lot of people respond oddly when i say i have read 37% of a book or that my reading goal for today is 13% of the book i am reading.

I'm glad you tried it! :ThumbUp:

I probably have other quirks that I'm not even aware of...it would be more fruitful to ask people who know me.

I do the same thing, except by fractions. Thirds and fourths usually.

I run my thumb nail under each of my finger nails five times
I have also counted syllables of words by flexing my leg muscles
I'm starting to think I should stop naming quirks. Why is this thread in existance!?! :rolleyes: :blush:

:Nope: - I just love this smiley

I do the fractions thing. I never thought of it as a quirk, just keeping tabs on how much progress I've made, how far I still have to go. It's generally a rough approximation. Doing the math to get a percentage does seem more quirky!
