During the day, we perform many actions that do not remain in our memory - we tear off toilet paper, send an e-mail to a colleague, or choose toothpaste in the store. These minor habits lead to a conclusion about your emotions, traits of character and your approach to life in general. Here is several psychological studies and expert opinions about what our daily habits can tell about you.
1. The choice of toothpaste can tell you about the love of detail
Do you treat people who browse toothpaste tubes in the store to find what they need, or quickly select and know exactly what you need?
Studies conducted in the 2012 year found that those who delve into the details tend to analyze the information to the end and always need the details. Those who choose immediately do not care about the details and prefer general information.
2. The way you hang toilet paper will tell you how pushy you are
Relationship Specialist Gilda Carla (Gilda carle) interviewed 2000 men and women about how they hang toilet paper, and also conducted a test to determine how assertive they were in a relationship.
The results showed that those who hang toilet paper with the end out are more dominant in the relationship than those who hang the end inwards.
3. Eating habits will tell you about your approach to life.
Experts in the field of eating habits believe that those who eat slowly love to control and know how to appreciate life. If you are used to eating quickly, then you are ambitious, goal-oriented, open to new experience and often impatient.
Omnivores are those who love to go out of the comfort zone, while picky foods are likely to be neurotic in many aspects of their lives.
And, finally, those who like to share food on their plates are meticulous and disciplined.
4. Gait tells about your vulnerability
We can draw many conclusions by looking at how a person walks. For example, we believe that if a person takes large steps, then he is an extrovert and adventurous by nature, while a stiff gait indicates neuroticism.
However, such conclusions may be incorrect.
The only thing that a walk can tell you exactly is how vulnerable a person feels. The results of the 2013 study of the year showed that people with a penchant for psychopathy often chose those who fell victim to aggression in the past. When they were asked why they drew such a conclusion, many said that they could tell about it by walking a person.
5. The style of conversation will tell about your romantic feelings.
The words we use can give an idea of our age, gender, mental health, and how romantically interested we are in a partner.
The study showed that we change the intonation and the choice of words when we talk to the one who attracts us.
6. E-mails tell extrovert you or narcissus
The next time you open your mail, pay attention to how the person presents himself.
Extroverts are more likely to talk about entertainment-related topics like music and parties. People with low emotional intelligence tend to use negative words such as "depression" or "anger."
Narcissists, as you might expect, often use the words "I," "me," and "mine."
7. Punctuality will tell you what type of personality you are.
The fact that your friend is late does not always mean that he does not reckon with anyone.
Those who tend to be chronically late are of type B personality, or carefree by nature.
At the same time, psychologists have identified 4 personality types that are always late.
Perfectionists do not leave the house until they make sure that everything is in order.
Fans of drama get pleasure from the rush to meet the deadline.
Violators protest against government or social norms.
Dreamers are too optimistic about what they can do in a certain period of time.
8. Nervous tics tell you how perfectionist you are
Nervous tics include repetitive body-related movements, such as the habit of gnawing at nails, pulling out hair, or picking skin.
According to the study, people who are most prone to perfectionism often showed nervous tics, especially in nervous, annoying and boring situations. This is due to the fact that perfectionists feel better by performing some actions instead of inaction.
9. Attachment to the telephone speaks of emotional stability
Many of us love to check the phone when we stand in line, go to work or even while talking to friends. However, the habit of looking at the phone all the time can tell us about our emotional stability. The results of the study showed that emotional instability often leads to dependence on the phone.
In addition, introverts and shy people were less likely to be tied to their phone.
10. Selfies will tell you how open you are to new experiences.
The 2015 study of the year, conducted at the University of China, showed that several conclusions could be drawn about the person’s self-identity. So, friendly people tend to take a selfie from below, conscientious people rarely reveal their personal space in the background of the photo.
Those who are open to new experiences, often showed positive emotions, and neurotic individuals were prone to stick out their lips.
