Fidgeting creates hate
ONE in three people hate seeing other people fidgeting, according to a new study.
Researchers from University of Columbia recruited 4100 participants who were asked to self-report if they had sensitivities to seeing people fidget.
They were asked if they ever had strong negative reactions, thoughts or feelings whenever they viewed other people fidget or do something repetitively, such as seeing someone’s foot shaking, fingers tapping or chewing on gum.
They found about one in three people – 37.1 per cent – experienced the psychological phenomenon known as misokinesia, a hatred of movements.
