Instead of putting in case of people's emergency numbers in your cell phone, read this!

I am very entertained by the nearly even split in my sweaty palms/bottoms of feet poll.

Now, of course, I'm wondering what causes people to have or not have that happen to them.


I knew, I note, that sweaty palms was often interpreted as a fear reaction, and not a temperature reaction. But I did _not_ realize that not everyone has them as a heat reaction. Of course, the humidity factor also comes into play, since I'm not sure if I notice my palms being sweaty if it's hot but not humid (rare, around here, but happens). And I definitely don't notice the bottoms of my feet being sweaty if I'm not wearing sandals.

Sweaty socks is less clear, since it could be the rest of one's foot, and not the bottom, doing it.


And I'm wondering if those strange people who think that wearing socks and sandals is wrong happen to have been people for whom the bottom of their feet don't sweat.

Anyway. Mostly, I find the sweaty palms thing annoying because it means I have no grip in order to open things, and everything sticks to my palms when they are damp. And the feet thing is part of why I tend to avoid shoes in summer, since it means my feet are slippery in my sandals.
