Fun facts

According to a 2007 study from the University of Delaware, clumsiness is something we’re born with. They quizzed 1500 student athletes and found that those with the slowest mental reaction times and processing speeds were the most likely to get injured. If you’re a naturally clumsy person, doctors suggest slowing down and taking in your surroundings before you act—that will help reduce the number of accidents.

Expressions included in the study guide

  • Butterfingers
