Repetitive Behavior

I run a company and I have an office staff of about seven people. One person in particular comes in my office and each time he starts to sit down, he has to move the chair. It doesn’t matter which chair he sits in, or where it is pointing, he has to move it.

I have also noticed that sometimes, even if he doesn’t sit down. Say he’s just going to lean on it with his arm or hand, he moves it.

Now, I’m not too worried about this and I’m not going to fret over it, but I would really like to know why he does this. I mean to each his or her own, it’s just a little strange to me. Is there a condition some people have that makes them do this sort of thing?

Thanks very much.
