Why would an adult resort to banging their own head and/or hitting them self? Called a temper tantrum as a child, but when faced w/a lot of stress,anxiety,etc.Apparently it isn't done for "attention",I have seen this happen and it doesn't even make sense as the person normally seems OK. Also, when it does occur, this person seems to get embarrassed and wants to be alone.
