    I don't usually pay attention to my gestures, but I did notice I made a claw today.

    Am i the only NT who doesn't understand what a claw is?

    I don't think I do claw gestures, whatever that is. I do use my hands a lot when i talk though. More like undulatory movements through the air, that accompany the patterns of speech.

    Think culture may play a part in hand gestures too, as some of the rest have observed.
    You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;
    They called me the hyacinth girl.
    Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
    Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
    Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
    Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
    Looking into the heart of light, the silence.

    Ah, alright. Thanks for the explanation, mippus.

    And ok, I certainly don't do that at all. It looks distinctly...ungraceful. For want of a better word.

    Perhaps a part of it is upbringing. Then again, I should note too that on the values sorter test, beauty/art was one of my three top values.

    Thanks, I didn't get that, either. I was picturing other NTs going around imitating dinosaurs or the Wicked Witch of the West. I definitely don't do the claw.

    I suspect that the INTP mirroring thing comes into play with my gesturing. I probably gesture a lot like the person I'm currently talking to.

    You'll chop off your finger and give it to others? (Well, I guess NFs are really good at sharing.)
