5 Things Your Nail Biting Habit Can Reveal About You



Nail-biting typically begins in childhood. Many people who had this habit as kids eventually outgrow it, but for some, it becomes a lifelong habit that can be extremely difficult to quit. Most of us grew up thinking that biting our nails was a bad habit that we need to break. But it turns out that this repetitive behavior can reveal some interesting facts about you, and it’s not just about your stress level.


We at TRIG have done some research to find out the reasons behind the habit of biting one’s nails.

1. You may be a perfectionist.

Most nail biters are overachievers, according to a study. Researchers surveyed a group of people, half of whom had a habit of biting their nails and half of whom did not. Nail biters turned out to be type-A personalities who tend to overwork themselves.


2. You’re smarter than you think.

People who bite their nails are often goal-driven individuals who don’t perform tasks at a usual pace. Many people have a tendency to bite their nails during moments of intense concentration when they’re trying to work out a problem.





3. You may be impatient.

Boredom and frustration may be important triggers of nail-biting. Once it becomes a habit, it can become something you do to keep yourself occupied when you’re bored or waiting around.


4. You may not be happy with yourself.

Biting your nails can be a nervous habit that temporarily makes people feel better. Nail biters are often overachievers who set huge expectations for themselves. When they can’t reach their goals, they often feel disappointed and ashamed of themselves.




5. It might be related to a psychological issue.

Biting your nails may be linked to obsessive-compulsive disorder — when people feel the urge to do something over and over again, like for example, to pick at their nails. However, not everyone with these mental conditions bites their nails, and it is often a long-lasting habit that is difficult to overcome.


Did you bite your nails as a kid? Do you still have this habit?

Why Being Single May Be Better Than Being in a Relationship

Society has a lot of stereotypes and prejudices about love. As a result people often feel pressured to stay in a relationship, even if they aren’t satisfied with it, and feel guilty for being single. But don’t forget that you can be alone but not lonely. Being in a committed relationship with yourself actually has many benefits. We at TRIG are sure that one of the most important relationships you will ever have is with yourself, and sometimes loneliness is the best option. 1. We are often guilty of singlism. Research showed that people evaluate single men and women more negatively. It is so common that there’s even a word for it: singlism . Single people face different types of discrimination, and it’s considered legitimate and unproblematic. So the next time someone asks when you’ll find your partner, they are actually invading your privacy. 2. It’s better to learn to be kind to yourself first. No matter how hard you try, if you don’t love yourself you can’t build a healthy relations

See Yam Tubers That Look Like Human Body Parts

Farming as we all know is done by so many people for the purpose of producing for their personal consumption or for commercial purposes. Different types of crops have their different ways of being planted and also bear their produce in different ways as well. For those that have engaged in farming one way or the other, or even those that go to the market to make purchases, you will agree with me that root and tuber crops such as yam, potatoes, cocoyam, Cassava etc have a form in which they appear when uprooted or harvested from the ground, some are straight while some have different indefinite shapes of different sizes. But something got me amazed, I came across these strangely shaped and configured yam tubers harvested by a Nigerian Farmer. The two pictures above illustrates the general shape and physical appearance of yam tubers. The pictures below are in no way like the ones above. In fact, the physical appearance of the below images is one that is familiar to most of us. As can be
