Beware of These Super Annoying Habits That Can Get Out of Control
We all have people around us who have annoying little habits we wish they didn’t, like a constant need to clear the throat, or a compulsion to share every little detail about their life on Facebook. It takes a lot of patience to tolerate these habits. Especially if you spend a lot of time with such people. But rest assured, they are not deliberately being annoying. According to recent scientific research, it is out of their control, because most of the time, they are suffering from medical issues that result in gestures you find annoying.
Clearing Throat All the Time
We all know that person who begins speaking by clearing his throat. Truth is, they are most probably suffering from a sinus issue named chronic rhinitis. This condition causes a build-up of mucus in their nasal canal whenever the upper portion of respiratory tract gets irritated. This is especially problematic for those who have common allergies such as dust, because their respiratory tract can become irritated very easily.
This habit is also common in those people who have acid reflux, which causes the throat to swell up as the acid moves up from the stomach to the oesophagus. Since mucus does exist in the throat, it gets stuck to the now narrower canal, causing blockage in the throat. Typically, an OTC heartburn medication can resolve the issue, but if the problem persists, a visit to the doctor would be helpful.
The Overuse of “Like” and “You Know”
There are words people use as fillers in their sentences, such as “basically”, “honestly”, etc. But the two most commonly used fillers are “like” and “you know”. People have the potential to repeat these terms multiple times in a single sentence, and according to research, it is because they are very insightful and want to get their point across as comprehensively as possible. The study analyzed over 260 transcriptions of conversations people had in normal settings and found that those who used filler words tended to be more conscientious than those who didn’t.
The Tendency to Share Everything on Facebook
There is a scientific explanation behind why people share every little piece of information about their life on social media. The explanation comes from a Harvard study conducted with over 212 volunteers whose brain activity was scanned through an MRI machine while being asked to talk about both their own self and other people.
Results of the study showed that when people talked about their own self, the reward centre of their brain lit up, making them feel good. Since people get more opportunity to talk about their personal opinions or self on social media, they prefer to post a lot on it to compensate for the lack of conversation about themselves in real life.
The Disgusting Habit of Nail-Biting
A research conducted with over 48 respondents concluded that those who bite their nails, or pull on their eyelashes, are just bored when they indulge in such activities, and most often, those people are perfectionists in their daily lives. According to this research, perfectionist people tend to get bored very easily, and they start looking for things to do. Since nails can seem imperfect in shape, the internal obsession to make things perfect awakens and the person is found biting the white area of the nail until it’s all pink.
The Constant Fear of Getting Sick
There is a psychological condition called an Illness Anxiety Disorder, which compels a person to worry about symptoms leading to very serious illnesses. Usually people who suffer from IAD have a history of abuse during childhood, a stressful life situation, depression or other psychological disorders, and fall between the age bracket of 25-35 years old. There is no direct treatment for IAD but taking anxiety-calming or anti-depressants can calm its impact.
Those Who Drive Recklessly
There is more to fast drivers than the desire to reach great speeds on the road. According to a research conducted by Colorado State University, it is a sign of territorialism when a person drives fast on the road. If you know someone who drives at great speeds, explain to them that they don’t own the road. You never know, your words may even save someone’s life.
