About This Quiz

The next time you read a book or watch a movie, pay attention to the mannerisms that help define each character. While many mannerisms are apparent at first glance, some are more subtle and hidden, as they have to do with body language on a subconscious level. And that's exactly what we're going to explore today with this personality quiz: some of your most attractive, intriguing or not-so-wonderful mannerisms!

Mannerisms are not taught in school – they develop as we grow, experience life and communicate with other people. Sometimes we copy the mannerisms of other people without realizing it. In short, mannerisms have to do with the quirks that make you unique. For example, if you have certain phobias, such as a fear of people or a fear of bugs, then your reactions to those things are among your mannerisms. Other types include having a photographic memory, making (or not making) eye contact with other people, crossing your legs when you sit down, never wearing the same outfit more than once or being obsessed with winning certain types of games. 

Whether any of these mannerisms resonate with you or not, this personality quiz will explore more about who you are as a person!
