I've recently developed this habit and it's really difficult to get rid of. I feel it looks really affected and disingenuous, but I honestly can't help it. On the other hand there's some charm to it. I know a guy who will start beating very hard on the table when he's amused and it's a spectacle that is well worth seeing. (disclaimer: I'm perhaps slightly drunk with victory tonight. God bless Francois Hollande)

I did it very often when I was younger but (mostly) broke myself of the habit because I thought it was weird. Will still do it rarely.

I'm worse about snapping to show approval- ubiquitous at fraternity meetings, but sometimes I'll catch myself doing it when I'm not around fraternity brothers and I'll feel like an idiot.

Excitement is a full-body experience for me.  Which is often amusing to others, because I am frequently excited Grin

Yes. I also sometimes slap my knees/the table if I'm sitting down. I don't know why.

Yeah sometimes. It's extremely stupid and pointless, but you can't stop it from happening.

That has got to be one of the most retarded proposals I have read on this forum.

No, never clap my hands together when I laugh, but I do the bang my hand in the table (or if there's no table my leg) just like your friend does when I find something extreamly funny. It's a reflex.

Yes, but only if something is really, really funny and I have to give it applause as well as laughs.
