[ed: Fingers up in the air (up-twinkles) = I agree with you.
Fingers down (down-twinkles) = I’m not with you on that.
Fingers in front, waving (mid-twinkles) = Eh, maybe, not sure.
Fingers in a triangle = Point of Process (aka PoP) (someone is essentially speaking out of turn or not addressing the issue at hand)
One finger up = Point of Information (aka PoI) (someone has factual information directly relating to the information at hand)
Arms crossed = Block. Someone has a very serious moral, ethical, or safety issue and would rather leave the movement than agree with the proposal.]
