I suffer from the grandiose delusion that it is my constant fidgeting that prevents my state of California from falling into the ocean. :twisted:

Yeah. People always ask me if I'm nervous when I feel fine because of it.

I remember hearing that it burns quite a few calories. NPR, I think. And yes, lots. Recently, I've started bouncing on my balance ball desk chair.

Yup, I tend to find it difficult to sit totally still.

I don't know how people DON'T fidget. I am almost always using my computer or iPod because I have to keep my hands busy. When I am sitting in a chair or something I usually shake my leg or something.

I fidget almost constantly, including when I'm not nervous. Sometimes it's practically invisible, like tapping my teeth together lightly in a pattern that corresponds to a melody. Often it's not practically invisible.

I've noticed that when I'm nervous, I fidget in different ways than when I'm not nervous. My nervous fidgeting tends to have more sharp/sudden motions or pressure than my non-nervous fidgeting.

I'm wiggling my toe right now, and I have nothing to be nervous about.
