What are some weird "impulses" that you restrain?

For example, a comedian was commenting on whenever he sees a police officer he just wants to lean over and grab his gun just to see if he can do it. LOL And I have to say, I have had that same impulse! Or one guy commented that anytime he gets up high he just gets this urge to jump. Of course, he doesn't but he has to sort of fight this impulse. Are there certain things that trigger your need to do something you KNOW you can't but you so want to?

Once I had an impulse to jump, it was weird. I was with my cousin in San Francisco and we were by the Golden Gate bridge, some park or something near it, and we were standing out by this really steep hill that went down into the water. I stood there looking down at the water and got the urge to jump. I quickly went back to the car and sat down, never had it happen before then or since then, it was odd.

See, though, I started a discussion a few weeks ago about having fantasies about harming other people and really they are only fantasies because I surpress the urge to live them out. And when I started that a bunch of people jumped on me for being weird and odd. But you're right, us weirdos are basically safe together, aren't we?

I have to hold back the impulse to rub a freshly shaven head. My husband shaves his head and I just love the feeling when it is freshly shaven. I wish more people would learn to restrain the impluse to rub on pregnant bellies though. When they don't then I have to repress the impulse to smack them in the head.

I have weird impulses like this too. Im like that guy that commented, i feel like jumping off high places and its really weird, its like fighting something that you know your not going to do but are thinking about doing it. Our school is three stories tall, so that doesnt help :P I also get the impulse to throw my phone out the car window when we are driving along :P

I have many impulses which I cannot exercise. Report abuse or rate negatively when someone ask " Is mylot really pays" Pelt stones at the stray dogs when they love openly. Caress her beautiful long hair. Wink at a girl who constantly looks at me. Kick the cops, who take bribe from poor vendors and hawkers. Cup the sexy buttocks when they are exposed.

Haha I've always had this weird impulse whenever I see a guy with a buzz cut where I just want to feel his hair. lol It's just so short and fuzzy that I always wanna see what it feels like! What's funny is that I ended up marrying an army guy (go figure!), so now I constantly rub my hand on his little military haircut all the time. haha At least that keeps me from wanting to do it to random strangers now! :P

OMG... I did that to a guy with a huge mohawk and bald all around him. I was a bit intoxicated, went up and said "PLEASE let me feel your head" LOL

Well, I know the other day I had to majorly fight the urge to slam on the gas as hard as possible during my driving lesson. Crawling around at less than 1 mile an hour for that long was just too much for me, especially because I have done the same thing every week! I don't need to keep doing this same thing over and over, I can't learn anything new that way. Thankfully, I don't have to worry about those lessons anymore... I really thought if I had to sit through that for one more minute, I was going to snap.

LOL... I think that's a really natural urge that we OFTEN have to repress!!!! I've been so fed up with driving that day that I simply wanted to just step on it and crush all those in the way! So I don't think you're alone on that one either!

How about this one- Every once in a while I feel like pushing people over- Let me explain- If I see someone bending over to pick something up they dropped I have the urge to just push them right over- Doesn’t even matter who it is- Of course I don’t push them over- It is very odd! That is the only urge I can think of.
