Ji-5: Meticulous Hands

Visual Description The person’s body remains rigid, with their arms close to the torso and their fingers stretched and spread out delicately as they give subtle emphasis to language.

Ji-4: Momentum Halting

Visual Description The  person’s momentum (Pe) or articulation (Je) becomes interrupted by a temporary freezing of the body. Often mid-sentence, the hands and head will stiffen into a set position and halt all activity. This can last anywhere from half a second to several seconds.   Psychology Description This signal indicates that the psyche has…

Ji-3: Exerted Push

Visual Description Starting from a place of receding energy, the body attempts to push out a gesticulation (Je) while remaining delicate and tentative. This gesture will emerge from a rigid yet technical place, often with meticulous fingers, soft wrists and a pointed specificity. Unlike a normal gesticulation, there is a degree of restraint applied to…

Ji-2: Disengaging Eyes

Visual Description The body becomes rigid, inward turned and the eyes disengage from the environment. The eyes will loose all interest in their surroundings, and will fall downward, often coming to a complete close. As a less pronounced version of this signal, the eyes may also disengage in a series of successions, causing excessive blinking…

Ji-1: Receding Energy

Visual Description The body will freeze/pause its activity, then dwindle back toward the torso area with a passive energy. If the hands or fingers are spread out, they will shrink and contract.

Here the ocular…

Pi-4: Worldview Rambling

Audible Description The person will engage in a monologue or “ramble” where they drift from one topic to the next seamlessly and without pause or interruption. The distinguishing quality of a Pi ramble is an absence of focus or conclusiveness (J) to their elaborations. The activity is instead an undirected free-flowing broadcast of information as…

Pi-3: Diagonal Eye-Drifts

Visual Description The head, steered primarily by the eyes, disengages from the audience to drift to the side for a moment. After a moment of reflection, it then returns to the original direction it was facing, often accompanied by a jutting of the head forward. Psychology Description This signal reveals a psychology momentarily disengaged from…

Pi-2: Fixed Gaze

Visual Description The eyes remain fixed forward, staying open rather blankly while the person talks. Their eyes will be disconnected from the animation of the mouth or other facial muscles, retaining their focus rather independent from the rest of the face.   Psychology Description This signal reveals a psyche that is disengaged from the present,…

Pi-1: Inertial Energy

Visual Description The body remains fluid at the spine, but very inertial in its movement. Body sways, leans and head tilts will carry a degree of lag and a reluctance toward spontaneity which stems more from a viscosity of the body than from rigidity/firmness of posture. When the body moves due to Pe or Je…
