If you have guessed that a person is under stress,tension or anxiety if they bite their nails then pat yourself on your back since you are getting good at reading body language.Now that we have given the general meaning let me tell you what nail biting does not mean.Some people think that nail biting is some sort of flirting signal since it may look cute when someone bites their nails but the truth is that it is not.It may even mean that the person you are observing is stressed or uncomfortable by your presence.Another point to note is that when someone bites their nails in your presence that means that they don’t care what you think about them ,because they are so preoccupied with what is causing them the stress that they ignore your presence.Keep in mind that nail biting is a well known negative trait and people won’t consciously bite their nails before someone they want to impress.
