I always drag my mouse pointer to select the text on the screen then click to release then do it again plus doing right click to show the context menu, repeatedly, when I’m reading something.
I thought I was the only one doing that! :) I constantly double-click the text to select the word or triple-click to select the whole row, and then click again to de-select it, while reading. Also, when thinking about what to type, I press SHIFT or CAPS -LOCK keys… Like I have some kind of feeling in my fingers that they can’t rest but have to DO something…

Yup, I do this as well, the highlighting and right-clicking.

It’s almost as if I’m trying to distract myself from trying to read something.

Edit: I do this on the desktop sometimes as well. Dragging and creating highlight boxes around specific areas of my background.

Haha, instead of distracting yourself, I guess it actually make you more focus on what you’re reading right?

For me it’s yes! That’s fun for my fingers somehow. :D

Whenever I go into the kitchen to get something (a pen I left there, a fork, whatever) I open the refridgerator and stare into it for some minutes…

One time, I was having a bath, my head underwater and mom walked by the door. She asked me if I was stupid, and I accidentally said yes. :P
