Ever wondered exactly why we bite our nails and why it is so darn hard to make it STAHPPP?
Well, researchers from the University of Montreal now have the answers as to why and apparently it’s related to our personalities.
Oh please, are they for real? Like why do all these studies have to link bad habits to our personalities?
The experiment, which sampled 48 nail biting obsessed peeps revealed that nail biting is more likely to occur in ordinary situations rather than stressful ones. Who would have known…
Dr. Kieron O'Connor, the main author of the study stated, “We believe that individuals with these repetitive behaviours may be perfectionistic, meaning that they are unable to relax and to perform task at a 'normal' pace."
Sounds about right don’t it? No wonder why we bite them so much whilst at work! Just trying to be perfect and all.
