About this product
- DescriptionEveryone exhibits styles of movement and speech, traits and habits which are characteristic of them as people but do t contribute dir- ectly to their purposeful activity at anyone time. Many of these will be expressions of personality of which the individual may be unaware or even cherish and which evoke a favorable or neutral response from others. Conversely, displays such as gross involuntary tics or compul- sive rituals are a burden to the sufferer and are socially embarrassing or obxious. These may be manifestations of a more fundamental neurotic disorder or the product of deep-seated maladaptive learning. Nail-biting occupies a central position along such a spectrum. Al- though it may serve as a tension-reducing or other functional device, few nail-biters would t wish to be rid of the habit but find it as difficult to eliminate as, say, an addiction to smoking. Even so, it cant be considered abrmal in a psychiatric sense in that many nail-biters exhibit ne of the traits and symptoms characteristic of mental disorder.
