Why Move?

I was teaching a new guy to Wargaming recently. I noticed a strange phenomenon.  It’s not just him.  I see veteran players do this also.  What did he do?

I noticed that every time he moved, he moved the maximum distance possible. He pushed it EVERY time.  I had to constantly watch and police him.  He kept trying to nudge each piece just a little further. 

I even noted that he wasn’t in a hurry!   There was no reason for him to be moving fast.  There was no urgent tactical or strategic crisis at hand.  No benefit to be gained from going a little further. 

It is strange when you think about it. Why do we do this?  Have you notice this in your play?  Do you and your friends do it too?
