Fed up of your mum telling you to stop biting your nails? Well, now you have the perfect response – you’re actually a perfectionist. Biting your nails or pulling at your hair has long been thought to be a sign of nervousness and anxiety. But new research has found that the frowned-upon habit could in fact be a sign of perfectionism.
CANADA:-The study, conducted by the University of Montreal, has shown that nail-biting was actually most common among the 48 people observed when they were feeling bored and complacent, habits highly associated with perfectionism itself. These behaviors don’t come from poor habits; they come from the need to progress and succeed.
Nail biting has always been seen as a cheap habit, often associated with low self-esteem and social anxiety. This new angle is important because it’s yet another way we perceive people that seems to be ill-founded. The nail-bitter over from you at work, in class or at the library may be the next Darwin, Abe Lincoln or Bill Shakespeare.
As it stands, these repetitive behaviors are somewhat frowned upon, a source of shame for many who feel the compulsion to carry them out regularly. Well no more! We should praise the nail-biters around us; they’re clearly on the cusp of a world-changing idea.
