Gestures - movements of our hands, arms, and fingers to describe or emphasize a point.

After the face the hands are the most expressive part of our body. We use them to reinforce our speech or on occasion even as it’s replacement.
Open palm gestures – truth and sincerity.
Palms together or both in pocket indicate withholding information or lack of confidence
