Nose Picking Study.  
July 18, 2007

There was a study on nose-picking published in February of 1995 in the Journal of Psychiatry.

Yes, you read it right - college professors being paid the big bucks to find out who picks their nose.

Of the 1000 surveys mailed out, only 254 were completed and returned to the researchers.

8.7% claim that they have never picked their nose. (In other words, they are liars or they can't remember doing it as a kid.)

91% stated that they had picked their nose in the past and were still actively practicing this habit.

Yet, only 49.2% of the respondents actually thought that nose-picking was common in adults.

9.2% rate their pickin' as "more than average."

25.6% actually pick their noses daily,

22.3% do it 2 to 5 times each day,

and three people admitted to doing it at least hourly.

55.5% spent 1-5 minutes,

23.5% spent 5-15 minutes,

and 0.8% (2 people) spent 15-30 minutes each day cleaning their nostrils.

One lone soul claims to devote over 2 hours each day to this ritual ....    !!!!!!

(I'm not a doctor and I can tell you that this guy definitely has rhinotillexomania).



Do you know this guy or anyone who has rhinotillexomania  ............  ?          


Sounds positively sad to me  ...............

Did you know .......... ?

It's not the size of a nose that's important.      



It's what's in it that matters.
