i never do it privately or publicly, I dont have any weird impulses.

My main issue is the emotional maturity level which my "peers" (are they really?)
have reached, which continues to elude me.

Yes, it usually happens when I'm excited or sometimes frustrated.

It is great for stress relief and continues good moods, so sometimes yes.

Wow...

I do that, when I feel very excited about something. I make sure no one can see me though, unless I'm with an equally excited friend or something.

I don't hand-flap, but I do... arm-things? Like, I'll hold my arms up over my head or spread them out like I'm pretending to be an airplane, usually while I'm walking along.

This generally accompanies some kind of elation, or if I'm trying to relax after an intensely stressful/anxious time. Very much feels like I'm shrugging off the tension. :)

I'm 19 and only flap when I'm excited, and by myself. When I'm around others I modify it to a kind of waving where my wrists are stiff and everything from the elbow down is flapping, dunno, somehow that seems less weird than the obvious autistic hand flap. I also do sort of a 'jazz hands' motion with my wrists/hands when I'm stressed (which happens a lot at work, kind of awkward...)

I conduct music. Just with my right hand. I don't even know I'm doing it a lot of the time. I don't even know what I'm conducting. The tempo's always pretty fast, so it might be a Sousa march or something.

I'm 21, and I hand-flap all the time... when I'm excited, stressed, upset, confused, anything. If I have a thought I didn't want to have I sort of hand-flap at my head as though I'm trying to bat the thought away like a fly... I never really thought about not doing it when other people are around, so I guess I do it regardless.
I walk on my toes all the time when I'm happy, or sort of skip.

Ever since I was little I walked on my toes. (my mother and granfather do too) I still do to this day and im 17. When I get excited I flap my hands or wave them around and get all tense and shakey. It was just recently that my mom found out that walking on your toes (tip toeing) was linked to a forum of autism. when I think of certain things i love to do, like cheerleading or I hear good news I get in that "hand flap" But I dont know if im autistic because I've lived my whole life thinking Im not. My 3 year old cousin was diagnosed with austism and hes a genius.
