Unless you work as a tour guide for haunted houses, you're probably not intentionally giving folks the heebie jeebies. Some behaviors, however, are downright unnerving no matter how inadvertent they may be. If people step back in the elevator or give you side-eye on a regular basis and you don't know why, it could have to do with your quirks. As it turns out, there are quite a few surprising things you're doing that people find creepy, and you may not even be aware of them. The silver lining here is that arming yourself with knowledge is the first step to breaking off-putting habits.
