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. If the arms are extended, they will return, folding themselves into the torso. The body remains rigid, defended and protective.
This signal reveals a psychology presently disconnecting its mental energy and attention from the outer world, and retreating into a place of private contemplation and conviction. The body remains very rigid (judgmental) while it abandons the external for the internal, resulting in internalized judgment (Ji). Such a person will display a psychology concerned with particular details and nuance in the values or positions expressed. They will have a keen selectivity to their thoughts which may extend toward a desire for semantic accuracy or exactness of definition.
