    Only if it's someone I like, and somewhat trust.


    If I don't like you, or trust you. No.

    No. Only if I'm excited about what I'm talking about. Most everyday conversation is boring to me so, you'll only see me wave my arms around like an idiot if you get me on a topic I have interest in.

    Yes I talk with my hands all the time. I read online once that this 'hand talking' is very common among INFJs. Maybe other NFs too, the article was focusing on INFJs though. I'll try to find the link...

    As someone else mentioned, the hand talking is a long-time, deeply ingrained thing for me. I remember friends teasing me for doing it in middle school. I always am completely unaware that I'm doing it until it's pointed out.

    If I am open in the conversation, I talk with my hands. If I am closed in the conversation, then I will hold my hands still, either folded, or down on the table, etc.

    Yes! I gesture a lot when I talk on the phone too.

    ^^^ OMG Yes! Me too lol. Even sometimes on Vent or in IM, especially if I'm particularly frustrated about something....I'll just throw my hands up in the air as if to say, "WTF is wrong with you?"

    If I don't know a person, then I'm much more physically reserved. With good friends and good conversation(or debate), I get all into it.

    No, I don't gesture very much.

    Side note: I'm really surprised you can say 'gesture' and mean it that way. I was almost sure that you had to say 'gesticulate'? I know it's right, but it sounds oh, so wrong...

    hmm...i have no idea!
