    If i'm minding my own business and someone touches me without me expecting it, I always jump. Even if they just brush past me and touch my arm, or if they tap me on the shoulder to get my attention I jump.

    It's so annoying as it looks like I'm being secretly assaulted therefore don't like people touching me or something.

    How can I stop it ?

    I don't know but I was in a similar situation, I used to flinch like crazy and it was extremely embarrassing. But I kind of grew out if it i guess.

    You were probably abused as a kid.

    This guy at my school used to flinch at every little thing, turns out he used to get locked in a cage when he was little

    Well what do you know! Ask your parents if anything dodgy happened
