I personally don't.

To people who do: Please refrain from it while in the cinema, or, please I beg of you, while taking an exam.

#3 Posted by C2C (889 posts) -

Normally I don't, with the exception being foot taps rhythm games to keep beat.

#4 Posted by TheUnsavedHero (1263 posts) -

Usually pretty steady. Unless music is playing, then I move my feet to the rhythm.

#5 Posted by Patman99 (1635 posts) -

People that tap their feet or whatever the hell they are doing bugs the hell out of me when it starts to shake the table. Perfect example is at my university, most large lecture halls have long tables that seat more than one person. When you have somebody tap their feet, it shakes the whole damn thing. Not enough to screw up my writing but enough to feel and shake my concentration...

Absolutely. It's relaxing in a way.

#7 Posted by Subjugation (4786 posts) -

My legs are perfectly still when I'm sitting. They do get a little twitchy when I'm trying to fall asleep though.

#8 Posted by Slaker117 (4856 posts) -

All the time. Not sure why.

#9 Posted by Vexxan (4624 posts) -

Used to do it in school but no more.

#10 Posted by wefwefasdf (6730 posts) -

Not usually.

I find people who obsessively click their mechanical pencils or pens to be much more distracting.

#11 Posted by Strife777 (1735 posts) -

Not a lot, but when I do, it's fast and I kind of can't stop it. I don't make noise when I do it though.

#12 Posted by rentfn (1376 posts) -

I was shaking my leg while I read this topic title :)

#13 Posted by benpicko (2016 posts) -

I can't sit still for longer than like 20 seconds without moving something, so yes I do.

All the time.

#14 Posted by LiquidSwords (2728 posts) -

Doing it right now. Sometimes I never notice until someone says something.

#15 Posted by Natedogg2 (479 posts) -

Yep, I do it all the time. Especially when I'm just siting at my computer surfing the internet.

#16 Posted by pjacobson21 (215 posts) -

you guys know that's a real disorder, right?

#17 Posted by LetsRockBaby (223 posts) -

Yeah I do, always.

Well there's something I didn't know.

#18 Posted by CounterShock (436 posts) -

Yeah, really badly. Sometimes i'll do it too often/hard that my leg will hurt.

#19 Posted by Amilmitt (245 posts) -

i move a good amount. 
ill also move around alot, i need a good chair to be able to be still.
sometimes im perfectly still but that causes all my bones to seize up(such a great feeling after moving though, like a good stretch).

#20 Posted by amomjc (978 posts) -

Doing it right now as I read and posted on your topic!

Villainous amounts of caffeine is usually the culprit. At least for me. It also happens when I'm uncomfortable or impatient, which happens quite a bit in games.

#22 Posted by Scrumdidlyumptious (1679 posts) -

Usually not, but I can't say I've never done it.

#23 Posted by face15 (1368 posts) -

I do, but it is silent. Not a concern for fellow movie-goers or exam-takers.

#24 Posted by Vodun (2393 posts) -
#25 Posted by Anupsis (326 posts) -

I do every now and then to help with circulation but that's it.

#26 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8734 posts) -

Usually not, once the music starts I can't sit still tho, but that's another thing.

#27 Posted by ReyGitano (2491 posts) -

It's nervous energy being released; it's just a twitch that most people have, myself included.

#28 Posted by mastrbiggy (233 posts) -

Yes, constantly.

#29 Posted by ValiantGrizzly (501 posts) -

All the fucking time.
I'm a drummer, might have something to do with it.

#30 Edited by GunnBjorn (2905 posts) -

Only when I'm hella nervous!

#31 Posted by Mars_Cleric (1646 posts) -

I shake my leg like crazy when I sit, but I can control myself when in public

The fact that something as trivial as that has a disorder name attached to it is disturbing in of itself  
and yea I do it's a habit and it's comforting and it helps make me think
#34 Posted by MrKlorox (11142 posts) -

Haha... as if they could control it easily. It's much easier for you to ignore it than it is for them to stop.

#35 Posted by Scodiac (491 posts) -

I do it sometimes but it's silent. I move my heel up and down kind of rapidly but it doesn't ever hit the floor.

It's a tell. I do it when I'm thinking harder than usual. Probably, when I'm nervous too.

Not everyone who does it has that disorder, just as every asshole doesn't have ADHD, some people are just assholes.

#37 Posted by SkylarTrace (121 posts) -

Nope I stay still like a log.

#38 Posted by ninjakiller (3428 posts) -

I was scrolling down to the forums and shaking my leg per usual when I saw this poll. All the time, I literally can not stop doing it, ever.

#39 Posted by wolf_blitzer85 (5284 posts) -

All the time. It bugs the shit out of my girlfriend when we're both on the couch, and at times I don't even notice myself doing it.

#40 Posted by ZimboDK (863 posts) -

It happens, especially if I'm concentrating on something, or thinking up something new to make in Photoshop. My grandfather did it constantly, and my dad hated it.

#41 Posted by Errordotocx (125 posts) -

All the time, and I usually don't notice till someone says something. But not only this, but I tap my feet, tap my hands, tap pencils/pens, day dream, am easily distracted, and have a horrendous nail biting problem. These ADD/nervous habits make it very hard for me to concentrate or stay focused for very long. =/

#42 Posted by YoungFrey (1363 posts) -

Never.  Not even if there is music. 
#43 Posted by Skyrider (407 posts) -

I do it, but pretty much only when I'm alone. Sometimes I do it without knowing, but I try to do it if I've been sitting down for a good while and don't feel like getting up to stretch, just to get the blood flowing and whatnot.

#44 Posted by ShockD (2486 posts) -

I'm doing it right now.

#45 Posted by Getz (3379 posts) -

This poll is telling. Gamers are twitchy and nervous RLS-havers

#47 Posted by avidwriter (670 posts) -

I do it only when I play PC and that's only because I don't want my legs to be motionless for that long.

#48 Posted by crusader8463 (14744 posts) -

Yes I do and I fucking hate it. My knees always hurt because I'm always shaking them from side to side. The worst is at night when I'm trying to sleep and my legs just won't stop rocking from side to side. Curse you restless leg syndrome!

#49 Posted by matthias2437 (992 posts) -

I vigorously shake my leg while sitting at a desk most of the time, but because I know it annoys most people I make a conscious effort to not do it in public.

#50 Posted by bill (108 posts) -

yes and people always ask me if im alright.
