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.
This signal indicates that the psyche has inverted its attention toward reflection amidst an activity. The outer world and their energy is almost entirely ignored, and thus halted, while this withdrawal happens. The person is searching within for more data/information to either complete their thought, idea, or sentence.
