I am an extraordinarily jumpy person. It seems like any kind of loud noise, or sudden physical contact will make me jump/yell, even if it is within context of what is going on. Example, I was at a hockey game two nights ago, and even though I was right at the glass where all the noise was, if someone made a bang noise, popped a balloon, or a player went by too fast, I would jump, and sometimes make a small yelp noise. I honestly don't really understand why I am so jumpy. It seems like it started a little over a year ago. I have always been jumpy, but since then I have been extremely so. If someone catches me at the right moment, I will fall out of a chair I am sitting in. God forbid a bell telephone goes off near me, I will freak (much to everyone's delight, haha). People have told me it's because I am tense, which is true. The few times I have gotten a massage people have told me I am one of the most tense people they have felt, and I don't even notice it at all. Also I am always told I am more high strung then a cat, and animal I am almost always compared to in personality. So my question to all of you is, how jumpy are you, and what does it take to get you to scare, jump, or yelp?
