Does everybody's hands shake to some point, for example when you are holding a spoon?

Yes, TO SOME POINT: A 16 year's old hand would not be expected to shake when outstretched or holding a spoon to the point of being that noticeable to the ordinary person looking on...if their hands were hooked up to machine to detect fine movements then, EVERYBODY'S hand would likely show some degree of tremor but most people wouldn't detect it. So if it's noticeable then, it's probably a little too much.
