How often do you bite your tongue, or inside of your cheek, or lip?

Ok everybody, this is a stupid question, I know! But I am SERIOUSLY CURIOUS! Please answer, and answer honestly. Here's why I'm curious:

Event #1 - I bit my tongue REALLY HARD while I was eating. It hurt a lot, and I stopped eating for a moment and I couldn't talk because I had food in my mouth, and tears came to my eyes. My son said from the other room, "Are you ok?" and all I could do was go, "Aaaahhhngg" so he said, "Umm... is that a yes or a no?"

Event #2 - I immediately wondered how human beings can possibly bite themselves on accident. I felt really dumb. I realized I bite my tongue quite often, and maybe there's something wrong with my brain, like... I'm stupid. But no, I'm an intelligent person, so why on earth would I frequently bite myself?

Event #3 - I wondered "How frequently IS 'often'?" Maybe I don't bite my tongue often, how often do other people bite their tongues? Who would know such a thing? A dentist? Should I ask my question to a dentist, who sees numerous tongues each day and might notice bite marks, or maybe he learned it in school?

EVent #4 - I took matters into my own hands and made this poll.

So here I am, waiting to see how often other people anonymously admit to biting their tongues.

Thank you.

I bit several times in my life...

I was told that if one frequently bites his/her tongue or cheeks, it might be the symptom of cerebral palsy.  However, I bit my tongue often during my childhood and in my 20's.

So, I don't care much of this saying because I know I don't have cerebral palsy.

I think, maybe my brain is slower than my mouth...  LOL
