T-Rex Arms?

HylianHylian Citizen, Mentor
Does anyone else do "t-rex arms", where you hold your arms up at chest height? Not intentionally, but just as a natural way of positioning your arms. I subconsciously do it all the time because I have no idea what to do with my hands and arms when I'm not actively using them.

    Lol, I never thought of it like T-rex arms! Yup, Ive noticed I do something like this, without being aware of it.

    Its mostly my right arm though,
    It seems to happen when I'm lost in thought.

    I think I've heard other autistic people refer to it as "t-rex arms", but I don't really know where I got the term.

    I also feel super "exposed" if I don't do it, and I am constantly unsure of how to position my arms otherwise. People look at me weird but making myself stop doing it feels so wrong. lol
