I don't think i have my own.. but theres one that i use frequently. You know that weird quotation thingie people do with their fingers? I find myself using that while speaking in korean too haha. I use it mostly when im directly quoting someone, or when im being sarcastic. Oh yeah, and also to emphasize.

I can't say that it's my 'own' body language, but I usually nod my head in the end of the conversation when I am talking about my experience or my opinion. I guess I do it to show people that my conversation is 100% true since it is MY story (haha).

I have some body languages. If I talking comfortably I usually shaking my hands smoothly.
But when I am angry I shaking my hand up and down hardly. And when I'm singing I shaking my right hand up and down along each tone.

Though I'm not the type of person who uses a lot of body languages, I certainly do use some when I have to emphasize something. I usually use my hands to show the size of something or difference of height or weight. When I'm standing on my foot, I use more body languages to make people focus on my presentation. This time, I move around a bit to make sure every single person is listening to my speech and move my hands to express my feeling well. Also, if I use body language while presenting alone, it makes my nerve to go down a lot.

I tend to talk fast when i lie because my friends told me this.. I also tend to touch my hair and bite my lips when i am nervous.
