Do you judge people who bite their nails?
I bite my nails. I've always done it. I have grown them out a few times, but then one breaks and I fall back to old ways. I know it makes my hands look bad, but so be it.
Do you judge nail biters? Do you think less of them? Would you take this into consideration in say the hiring process?
Personally I think nail biting is gross! What gets me going though is seeing dirt under people's nails, I think its by far worst then nail-biting. I don't really judge someone who nail bites ....but I would prefer not to shake someone's hand who is a constant nail-biter. I don't want to get spit/drool/spittle on me!!!
If I was a hiring manager or hr, I wouldn't consider it a deal-breaker (though nail biting does (to me) signify someone who is constantly in pressure or worried or anxious about something). As long as you're a strong candidate nail-biting shouldn't matter (btw don't nail bite during or while you're waiting in the waiting room for a job interview)
I don't give it a second thought. Most people have nervous quirks. Mine is biting the inside of my lip or cheeks. I don't know why anyone would think less of me for that!
I do not judge others. Only God can judge. If we judge, he will judge us. What are these people thinking?
If I judge someone for biting their nails then I would also be judging myself. So the answer is no and it shold not be considered in the hiring process
Yes. My sister bites her nails constantly. I think it is a habit that most often cannot be broken. So, I judge that she is used to doing so and will continue to do so as will most others that I observe doing the same thing. It does not seem to be harmful.

Why do some men have long fingernails?I saw a man recently who had very long fingernails, especially on the pinkies. I have seen other men with long pinky nails as well. Why do some men wear long fingernails like this? Is there something special about the pinky nail?

How do you stop picking at, biting and obsessively clipping your fingernails?I have done this since I was 10 years old, have tried everything and cannot seem to stop. If I don't have a nail clipper nearby, I sort of freak out. Any ideas?
