Where do our weird quirks come from?

Asked by erichw1504 (26336 points ) November 17th, 2009

Do you have unique, peculiar action or behavior that you do? Explain how, why, and where you do it. More importantly, where do they come from? Is it in our genes? Does it come from observing others, particularly our parents?

Why do we do the things we do?

If you can’t think of something you do, does someone else in your life have one?

What’s the weirdest behavior you’ve ever seen anyone do?

Once food enters my mouth, I cannot spit it back out. For example: If a peice of chicken has fat in it, it will gross me out more if I spit it out than to just chew through it and swallow.

I sniff paper. If I buy a new magazine with that shiny kind of cover, I have to smell it. Ohhh it’s so yummy. I have no idea where I got that quirk from. I’m pretty sure something like that doesn’t run in my family genes.

I have no quirks. I am quirk less. I am without quirk.

I do, I just cant think of any of them right now.

@mowens By the looks of your profile pic, you’re likely to have a lot of quirks.

They come from composite particles called hadrons.

@ChazMaz I’m apparently dyslexic, I read that last word completely wrong.

For me, it’s all in the mustache.

Let’s blame mom.

I pick the skin off my lips. I think it is a nervous tendency. My sister loops her hair until it is all knotted up. I’ll blame the parents. It’s always worked before.

I saw a woman smoke thru her nose. And then she ate her food.
