On Annoying Noises

I sometimes wonder if it’s instinct that drives me to make pointless and annoying noises when I’m in a particularly lazy mood. Like my tendency to drum out rhythms on tables, or pop bubble wrap if it’s there... Or if I have a tin can, I crumple it in my hand so that it crinkles and pops noisily. I can imagine out in the wild that it would be beneficial for some animals to be noisy in the hopes that it would scare off predators. I feel that it must be instinct, because it definitely does not happen on a conscious level. I don’t even realize I’m doing it. It’s like breathing.
