I've noticed that when I talk to someone when I'm sitting down (it is a specific person, this doesn't happen with anyone else) I tend to sit with my knees tucked up against my chest.
When there's a break in conversation for more than a minute I'll put my feet on the floor but when we start talking again I'll put them back up.
I'm pretty sure this is a means of pretecting myself, putting up an emotional shield by putting up a physical barrier but I want to double check with someone.
