Each of us has our habits and tics. If they represent us and if they are of any importance, you will find out in the following from the psychologist Marie Haddou.

"I always play with my hair"

But this feminine gesture is also a bit narcissistic. Touching you, caressing you is a very sensual mania, which can be part of the seduction props, especially if the hair is long. At the same time, it is a gesture that favors concentration when we have work or when we fall into thoughts.

"I look in my purse all the time"

It is a rage that belongs to those who check a hundred times if they have closed the gas, water, or door. It's more of a sign of anxiety. If you are on a trip and look in your bag for documents and money, the gesture has nothing wrong.

But if in your daily life you always look in your bag to make sure that your money has not been stolen, if you always check that the zipper is closed, then it is a high degree of anxiety. The gesture is determined by negative thoughts ("don't let anyone steal from me") on security.

These exaggerated fears reveal a somewhat catastrophic view of the world, but also a lack of trust in others. Through these gestures, the woman feels the need to make sure that everything is in order.

"I'm a maniac with cleanliness"

It is a reaction of inner disorder. As it is not at all easy to put things in order, some women consume their energy by arranging other things, the house - for example. Being a slave to housekeeping and cleanliness is a symbolic way to wipe out the "dirt" inside. Many manic people are equally obsessed with disease and germs.

Through the "declarations of war" they make to dust mites, microbes, pollution, they are only fooling themselves. But mania can become an obsession at some point. If we do the cleaning, before other things or if we can't go to bed in the evening until we put everything in order, we have to ask ourselves if something is wrong with us.

"I live in disorder"

According to Freud, this behavior returns us to the stage of mental development of the child up to 2 years and in particular, to the period of learning about cleanliness. It is the moment when the child revolts at everything you ask him to do.

In other words, once you reach maturity, living in disorder is a way to rebel against authority, to demonstrate to others your autonomy. This is also a lifestyle! Even if they know that what they are doing is not good, these people want to prove that they are different, that they do not support the restriction in rules and regulations.

On the other hand, these people can be very organized in their minds and with very balanced thinking.

"I keep everything, I don't throw anything away"

"I own, so I exist." This is how this mania of gathering and keeping old, useless things would translate. We are dealing with an immense fear of not being abandoned, abandoned, which has its roots in childhood.

What keeps such a person safe is armor, a protective nest that compensates for their vulnerability. Watch out for this rage! Throwing away useless things helps you see more clearly not only the space of the house but also your life in general.

"I can't stand anyone touching my things"

This attitude translates into someone's need to delimit their privacy. "Don't stick your nose in my stuff, because I don't touch yours either," is a natural tendency to distrust. Usually, this rage is typical of women.

"I don't want to see anyone when I wake up"

Some women want to calm down when they wake up in the morning, having a hard time parting with that regression period during the night. It is difficult for them to speak in the first hour, to be operative, to take "action".

They want to take their breakfast in peace, spend some time in the bathroom mirror, to dress quietly, after which they start their activity.
