One of the things I noticed about beginners is that they tend to castle starting with a piece that's closest to their dominant hand (e.g. playing white, right-handed person would touch the rook first when doing king's side castling). It happens very often, and I maybe saw three or four newbies doing it properly without instruction or being reminded, though I don't know if it's universal.
