Sarah Palin’s Manic Hand Gestures

Having watched *she who have hand gestures* that border on the maniacal, I took some screenshots from this latest abomination of word vomit and capitalization of pedophilia, and did some research.

handsCourtesy of Psychology Today:

Everyone “talks” with their hands at least sometimes. Some people’s hand-talking or gesturing matches their message well. Other people have a tendency to make overly large gestures that can be distracting. And still others don’t use their hands much at all. No matter which camp you fall into, it’s important to pay attention to your hand gestures while you are communicating or making a presentation. You may be unconsciously communicating in ways you don’t realize. Many gestures are universal across cultures and geographies.

Hand gestures that are larger than the outlines of your body — communicates a large idea or concept. But if all your hand gestures are large you will communicate that you are chaotic or out of control. (See the photo at the top of the post).

Explanation:

2. Palms up

Combined with outstretched arms, it communicates acceptance, openness and trustworthiness.

When done with a jerk of the shoulders, it can mean resignation or admitting weakness, as if to say, “I have no idea”.

Seconds later…

3. Palms down

Downward palms with straightened fingers indicate a sense of authority, even dominance or defiance. When a person does this while talking to you, it means he is not going to budge and you might have to change your approach.

When combined with a chopping action, a downward palm indicates emphatic disagreement.

8. Finger Pointing

finger pointingPointing a finger at a person while speaking is an authoritative gesture. People do this when imposing themselves: parents do it to their children, teachers to unruly students. It’s a way of talking down, usually interpreted as aggressive and angry. When done to a peer, it’s a show of arrogance – it’s confrontational, invasive and offensive. A fiercer variation is jabbing your finger.

5. Clenched fists

Clenched fists usually connote firmness of resolve – think of someone preparing himself for a football game or a fistfight. It can signify unyieldingness, like a more intense version of palms facing down.

Clenched fists with thumbs tucked-in indicate discomfort. This person is anxious and trying to harden himself.

None of them mention *the claw.*

    Germans and Italians can not speak if you make them sit on their hands. 🙂

      I wish Sarah would sit on her hands.

        That would definitely get her to STFU!! Unfortunately that will never happen because she earns her income by saying stupid shit, blaming a fictitious LSM, and playing the perpetual victim card. Conservative celebrities, like Sarah, thrive on a sense of grievance. That’s the best way for the Teavangelicals to retain popularity among their dimwitted supporters. She’ll never shut up because she wants to continue fleecing her sheep for as many years as she possibly can.
        PS I think her spastic hand gestures are directly related to her use of meth. She always appears to be cracked out to me, not just her over animated gesturing but also her mouth, clenched jaw and wagging tongue too. She’s a mess!!

        Depending on what her hands were doing at the time that might be quite effective..

      • Well that’ll never happen! Don’t both of her hands have to be holding cell phones, also too? She is a wack-adoodle, getting wackier by the day. Maybe she’ll implode on the upcoming Governor resignation announcement day ?! I can only hope.

    I only have one hand and one finger in an upward motion for Palin.

    Would that be the middle finger, perchance?
