    when i'm in an interview situation i find it really difficult to talk without sounding like i've just run a marathon. not good really!

    I have a silver ring with three bands (russian wedding ring style) and I play with that. I fiddle with it and it jingles and usually draws attention to the fact that I am nervous!

    I'm the same, if I do a presentation I have an anxiety attack! I have a constant nervous tremor but when I'm put into a situation where I'm nervous I will shake even more, and I shift about, tap my feet and look really silly trying to make my shaking not look so obvious!

    Bite the skin off my thumb. It looks nasty now and it hurts.

    Bite my nails.

    Blush. I'm always blushing though.

    Shake my leg.

    Play with my hair.

    Fiddle with random things nearby like paper or paint or something.

    Breathe really deeply and quickly.

    Over-apply lip balm.

    Oooh I am a nervous person.
