He probably is referencing how Nynaeve from Wheel of Time always tugs on her braid.

When does this braid tugging start?  I'm on book 2 and it still hasn't happened yet!  I've read more than enough "licked his/her lips" or "licked the last crumbs of bread and cheese from his/her fingers" though...

346. If you see/hear some unknown liquid drink from the floor, do not slowly look up. Immediately sprint for the nearest safe area. More often than not it's drool or something similar, and if it's just a harmless leak you'll find out from the safety of somewhere else.

347. If animals are nervous for no apparent reason, there is definitely an important (likely deadly) reason. Be on high alert when this happens, and get to a safe area if possible.

348. Wear iron. A great number of supernatural creatures have a weakness against iron.

348c. Basically just wear the periodic table at all times. Something is bound to be the enemy’s weakness.

They're good don't let the tugs convince you orherwise!  "shallan blushed" is far more often than anything else and Stormlight is still darn good!

Blushing is way different. The above actions aren't necessary to show emotion. Blushing is a development or observational tool.

I think politeness and clinical observation of your surroundings are probably your best bet.

349: If you feel “eyes on the back of your neck/ just your back” run. Seriously. There is always some agent of evil that’s about to attack, or some spy that’s about to learn your darkest secret, and know, unseen eyes are never, ever, good.

Harry Potter Spoilers:

Spoiler

349b. Disregard this rule if you have a godfather whom everyone thinks is a crazy criminal. Chances are that he is friendly and just wants to make sure that you are ok.

349c. Note that sometimes the eyes will literally be on the back of your head, depending on if you have been associating with any evil wizards recently.

I don't think you actually need spoiler tags for a 20 year old book

38. If some crazy person tries to tell you something that seems like gibberish or madness, pay attention to them. It’s either very important, or they are Hoid. 

 

I think it would be important either way, soo...
