19 Habits That Everyone Has, Yet Refuses to Publicly Admit

Humans are weird, and we’ve all got our strange little habits. But what are the things that we don’t want to tell anyone that we actually do? A recent internet survey asked, “What does everyone do but won’t admit?” Here are the top 19 answers:

Not Going to the Doctor When They Need To

“I’ve seen too many posts here of Americans asking for medical advice or hoping to be able to sit the issue out because they can’t afford a doctor. It’s crazy.”

“Been 14 years, and I’m going next month to get my blood pressure and insomnia under control.”

Winning Old Arguments in Their Head

“Yep, this truth stings because I never seem to think of it at the time, so why three years later, brain?”

“The older I get, the more I realize I could’ve said nothing and avoided so much trouble.”

Give Advice They Don’t Follow

“Is it that common to not admit it, though? I mean, ‘do as I say, not as I do,’ is a common phrase in my experience.”

“This is 100% true. Everyone is a hypocrite to some degree.”

Singing As Best as They Can When They’re Alone

“When I’m alone, I will be hitting those high notes even though I sound like a dying walrus.”

“Ah yes. I sing in my car and at home all the time. My poor wife and kids.”

Dancing When Nobody Is Watching

“I dance like an absolute weirdo when I’m alone, catch myself in the mirror, and think if anyone was spying on me, they’d have blackmail for eternity.”

“That’s so silly to hide! Dancing gets your body moving, burns some calories, and gets you hyped. I love dancing as I get ready or while I’m cleaning.”

Wondering if People They Used To Know Still Think About Them

“I never do this, and reading this just made it apparent to me. I think of those people, but I never consider if they’d be doing the same about me.”

“One of my dance teachers told us a version of you exists in the mind of every person you meet, and you only really die when the last person who remembers you dies. That one always stuck with me.”

Practicing Conversations in Their Heads

“This is how I can tell I am anxious about something. I treat it as a red flag that I am not managing my anxiety properly and need to take steps.”

“After having a really good conversation, I’ll just play it over and over in my head. I’ll think about what I should have said and just obsess over it. I’ll also plan conversations that I never have.”

Judge Other People

“I mean, sometimes it’s okay and even good to judge. Sometimes people are bad for you to be around, and that’s important to recognize.”

“We all do it. It’s about being intelligent enough to not let that cloud our perspective.”

Pick Their Nose

“We all pick our noses. It’s what we do afterwards that separates us.”

“There are two types of people in this world: those who pick their noses and liars.”

Thinking About Compliments They Were Given Years Ago

“I wore my ‘nice’ coat to work because I had a doctor’s appointment beforehand, and two people complimented me on it. I’ve worn it every day since.”

“This old lady once told me I had straight, pretty teeth when I was like 11, and I’ve been riding that high for like 20 years.”

Getting Angry at Other Drivers for Things They Do Themself

“Anyone driving faster than me is a maniac. Anyone driving slower than me is a moron.”

“We judge others by their actions, but ourselves by our intentions.”

Fantasizing About Others

“The real question would be, how many people have fantasized about you? Would it be something you’d want to know?”

“This was what I was gonna say too. I’m always curious what it would be like with my friends.”

Cupping Their Hands in the Shower To Collect Water Then Letting It Drop

“Haven’t done this in years. I’ll be right back.”

“Just your hands? Dude, use your forearms. One across with your hand angled up to the armpit, then the other across and a little above the first. You can collect SO much more water this way.”

Talk to Themselves When They’re Alone

“I don’t really talk to myself. I’ll talk to my cats, though, which probably has the same purpose. I have conversations with myself quite often. Just not out loud.”

“I’ll spend an hour explaining something to myself aloud as if I’m explaining it to another person, but I’m really just talking to myself in my room.”

Going Longer Than a Week Without Changing Bed Sheets

“Wait, you’re supposed to wash bed sheets every week? I’m genuinely shocked at myself if I do it every month.”

“When you google it, it’s actually recommended to wash them weeklytwo weeks at the bare minimum.”

They Talk About People Behind Their Backs

“I made a point of reducing that habit to a bare minimum. Save yourself from toxic people. Either I praise people to their backs, or I hold my tongue.”

“I’m trying to make an effort not to do this unless I’m saying something positive. That said, it is extremely difficult because it’s such a core part of socializing with most people.”

Fart Loudly When Alone

“I did actually scare my pet once by farting loudly. I was sitting in a mesh office chair, and they couldn’t figure out what made the sound. Poor creature.”

“I remember once ripping one so loud that my parents’ dogs started barking and howling.”

Pretend They Weren’t Sleeping When a Phone Call Wakes Them Up

“Nah, whoever has to deal with my groggy self yelling, ‘What?’ every twelve seconds gonna know.”

“I can honestly say I never do this. You wake me up from sleeping, it’s probably the first thing I’m telling you when I answer. Why do people pretend they weren’t?”

Lying

“And if you legitimately think you don’t lie, you’re lying to yourself.”

“There are different kinds of lying, though, and for me personally, I would have an extremely hard time lying to benefit myself at someone else’s expense.”
