What Your Habits Say About You

Behaviorists and psychologistswho study human behavior will tell you that a habit is something we repeat almost subconsciously andthat they tell a lot about who we are.

 If you have habits that are conducive to organizing, thenyou will be organized. On the other hand, if your habits are self-destructive you will indulge in things like smoking no matter who preaches you. Habits can easily become an obsession – the dark side of habits.

Brushing and flossing your teeth could become an unhealthy obsession, just as an addiction to junk food could kill you slowly.

So what do our most pervasive habits say about us?

- In contrast, there arepeople who are proud to say "I do not nap." This indicates a self-reliant personality that refuses to waste time. These people are very careful in financial matters and relatively quiet.

- When you organize a banquet at your home; do you prepare weeks before and take it seriously choosingthe right menu and dining accessories?
