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.

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

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

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.

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

Not usually.

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

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.

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

All the time.

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

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

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

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).

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.

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

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

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

The fact that something as trivial as that has a disorder name attached to it is disturbing in of itself

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

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.

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.

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.

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. =/

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.

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.

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!

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.
