    Default Are you the kind of person who

    sees the edge of a sticker turning up, and you feel an overwhleming urge to pick it, even tho u know that more than likely it wont come off whole, there will be annoying sticky bits left?

    Or maybe even a scab thats lifting, u know it will bleed as its not ready, but that one bit is lifting so, bam rippp!!!???

    Dh's ipad cover is faux leather and the corner is sperating, i just wanna pick it, it will totally wreck the whole thing, but i still wanna do it hahaha...dangit.i keep running my finger over it, its sooo tempting pmsl

    I always smooth the lifting stickers down, but I LOVE picking!!!!

    I'm a wound care nurse, so I always joke with clients that I get paid good money to pick
    It is SO satisfying picking off those old encrusted scabs and getting to the root of the problem. I find so many wounds heal quicker when that scab is (very gently!) lifted and the wound bed itself is treated, rather than the scab

    Clearly, picking is a passion of mine. Eww

    Yep, total sticker picker here! It's just so irresistible and I can't stop myself, even when I *know* the sticker will break apart. I still have to try!

    I pick at myself like i prefer to pick at my nails then clip them, even tho i know it ends up in ripping too far and causing pain i still do it so i guess that could be classed as self harm 0_o

    I have a talent for removing them fairly whole. Maybe residue of the glue but not much sticker. It annoys me when I have Acrylics and Just afterwards for about 2 weeks cause I can't get the Pickee (be it sticker, scab or pimple) At the right angle.

    Yep.

    I suck at not picking at things. I hate having painted nails because I will chip/peel them off almost instantly. I will also pick at scabs (my own) and love popping pimples (mine or DPs).
