    Default Superstitious behaviours?

    You're an NT right, and suppose to be super rational, everything has a logical explanation....but....

    What are the things you do that are superstitious or ritulistic that you think aren't particularly logical?


    An example.... avoiding soing thing on Friday the 13th...

    spil?

    I keep a $2 bill in my wallet, but mostly just because it's interesting to look at. I don't think it grants me any better luck or anything like that, but I still do it.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    When I worked in a call-center, I would knock on my desk occasionally (knocking on wood) in hopes it would delay me having to talk to another customer. Also, as a kid, if I scratched one hand I would have to scratch the other out of fear that the unscratched would get mad and jump off and leave me. This went for all appendages or anything there was double of, like nostrils and butt cheeks.

    hmmm... I go to church.

    That counts right?

    As for superstitious behaviors? I pick which ones I follow... like picking money up off the ground.

    I think the whole good luck bad luck thing makes sense though... when you think your lucky, you feel better, happier, whatever. Chances are, you're paying attention to life... thus you find opportunity... however small it may be.

    I in fact have no superstitions, now that you mention it.

    When I was growing up, I used to have a routine that I'd follow every single night immediately before plopping into bed: Check under the bed, check in the closet, check behind the shower curtain, pat all of my dolls on the head to say good night, and then tell Jesus to protect the house (I'm not religious anymore though). I had to do the routine twice every night. If I didn't do it twice, then a monster would appear somewhere in my room and attack me in my sleep. Silly, huh? Good thing I don't still do this...
