    ive been wondering how people open doors
    mainly because some of my friends push then try twisting the handle (starting to push before they start to turn) and some of my friends start to twist before they push
    they also twist in different directions too

    I don't have to open doors. I'm door-man, the worst superhero in the Marvel universe.

    Softly twist, then quietly push. Most important leave before husband opens te door.

    like a normal person, twist then push. push then twist is like punching the gas before you put it in drive. I twist clockwise, but I'm guessing that's because I'm right-handed.

    Depending how the door is made, usually.

    Hmmm this question is very interesting to me due to the fact here in Scotland there is only 3 types of door and they are all obvious as to what to do to open them.
    We have
    1. Push doors they open in and out and have a big sign on each side saying push
    2. Push and pull doors one side you push the other side you pull again each side has a huge sign saying what to do
    3. And finally a handle door you open this by pulling the handle down then either pushing and pulling the door depending on which side you are on.

    Never seen a door you have to twist the handle.

    I twist clockwise, then push. Pushing before you've twisted the door handle is just wasting energy.

    I twist and pull / push at the same time then push / pull
    why :
    Some door knobs are blocked and you first need to pull or push in order to twist them
    plus it make less noise so i got the habbit by now
    if it is a door you need to push, i'm first gonna pull, twist and then push
    if it is a door you need to pull, i'm first gonna push, twist and then pull

    Depends upon the style of door.

    I am not gentle, decorous or couth in any way though. Elbows/forearms and feet usually, occasionally fists. I occasionally get asked if I was born in a barn as well for most doors I tend to leave open/ajar which also helps with the former.

    Most places I go have big heavy doors (you want something in the case of a fire) and proper hinges though.

    Why does this thread exist? This feels like it should be in the EoF

    Because this is one of life's big mysteries of course /s


    For me I just do whatever at random or depending on the door. Why would I twist and pull if I have to twist and push for example?:P

    In the nursing home my dad was at for a while, the "doorknobs" were just things you push so you could just lean onto doors to open them.
