Ok when i get really happy i bounce in my chair or couch, and if im standing i hop/slash bounce, and if i see a huge ball, i have to bounce on it. My neighbors have this ball where you sit and hold on and bounce especially for me lol. Does anybody else here bounce?

I bounced when I was a kid. I did it on balls if they were available, I did it on the bed and couch. I did it because I like how cushy it was, with the bed I liked the springs. But I never did it that often. I can remember those bouncy balls you sit on to bounce around on. I have always loved those as a little kid.

I bounce, too. I usually do it when I'm bored, like when I'm waiting for the bus. I used to bounce on the bed when I was a kid. My mom wouldn't let me on trampolines because she was worried that I'd fall off, but one time we went somewhere and there was a trampoline with a net around it and I jumped on there the entire time we were there, which was for at least two hours. I have an exercise ball that I got to bounce on mostly for my seven month old. He sometimes needs to be bounced up and down to get to sleep.

I bounce on the balls of my feet when I'm excited or waiting in line for something. If I had one of those huge balls I'd spend all day bouncing on it. :)

Heck yeah! I LOVE the sensation of bouncing. I'll sit on my chair with one leg tucked under me and bounce, whether I'm home, at work, or wherever.

I, too, would have ADORED one of those huge bouncy body-balls as a child... and now even! I DO have a giant knobbly beach-ball type thing about 2'6" in diameter that I love to death. I enjoy hugging it and putting the weight of my torso on it... and bouncing, of course :D

i used to try "flying" where i was just bouncing and swinging my arms to generate some "uplift".... as in sitting indian-style and whooshing my arms upward and coming off the ground lol like a centimeter or so

I don't know, I have never realy thought about it, I might bounce, especialy if I am nervous or something.

Also I rememberd that I do do it when I am excited, I also sometimes become a little jitery.

I bounce when I'm uber-exited.

I like to bounce when I am excited or when I am thinking/focusing really hard.

I bounce sometimes but mostly if I have repetitive behaviour it is pacing back and forth, spinning around and walking round and round things.

I make people dizzy sometimes

I loved to bounce as a kid, jump on the couch, my bed, trampolines, all that. These days I bounce my leg on the ball of my foot when sitting, but that's all the bouncing I do now.
