Why do people bite their nails?
Often nail biting is a form of distraction from something that creates anxiety or discomfort. It can be a form of coping with feelings one finds hard to deal with. In some people, it might be a form of stimming, and also an action to self-calm. It might also, stem from a bad habit of keeping nails short by chewing. if the person was not shown how to cut the nails with nail scissors. And for some, fingers are handy when gum runs out. You’d need to work out why on a case by case basis.
