Yeah, I do move my hands a good amount.
10 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 9/3/09 - 11:30:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes I do.

When at work I have a headset for the phone so my hands a free for typing, I have noticed that when talking to customer I make a lot of hand gestures (yes I know they can't even see me but I still do it.)

I hear ya. I do the exact same thing.

I've never paid it that much attention. I'm sure I have some hand gestures, but I dont think its overly overt.
10 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 9/4/09 - 4:25:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
I suppose I do when I'm really excited.
10 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 9/4/09 - 11:01:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. I'm not Italian.
10 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 9/5/09 - 4:12:18 AM EST (GMT-5)
yes. It's a cultural trait here.

*gasp* Racist, yet true
10 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 9/5/09 - 8:08:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
Only when talking to idiots. (And I'm part Italian so that might be true)

Oh yeah. Italian nature, brotha.
10 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 9/6/09 - 3:42:10 AM EST (GMT-5)
I have no idea. I think I just use normal hand gestures, not extravagant ones.
10 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 9/12/09 - 5:25:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
nope. i barely make any.
10 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 9/12/09 - 7:17:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, quite a lot.
10 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 9/13/09 - 1:59:21 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, I find it distracting to watch and do. Whenever I watch newscasters present their stories I am perfectly captivated until their hands emerge from the desks. I am the same way in real life too.
10 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 9/13/09 - 2:07:31 AM EST (GMT-5)
I tend to punch when I say the word hi... if I'm not paying attention it makes for some expectingly short conversations
10 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 9/13/09 - 2:14:16 AM EST (GMT-5)
A lot of hand gestures, yes.
I've always been a hand talker.

And when I forget the word I want to use (it's on the tip of my tongue!), I snap my fingers to help me remember.

Yes, I talk a lot with my hands

I hate when people do this. Probably because my brother started doing it immediately when he figured out how to snap his fingers, like he's showing off that he can snap his fingers. It's not even easy for him to do it.

Yes.
I do speech and debate.
Duh.
9 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 4/18/10 - 7:47:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes
9 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 4/18/10 - 7:53:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
If I'm angry or am very passionate about the point I'm making, yes. Otherwise, not really.
9 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 7/29/10 - 4:51:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, I do. I'm 25% Italian and that's definitely an Italian thing. Even if I'm on the phone when the other person can't see me, I'm still gesturing with my free hand. My dad bugs me about that. "What're you gesturing for? They can't see you!" It's usually more for my benefit than the other person's anyway.
