A hand behind the head betrays a need to fend anxiety, danger or discomfort.

Steepled hands bear power and proclaims confidence and business.

The hand stroking the chin indicates ongoing evaluation of something just said.

The hands flat on the table indicate readiness to agree.

The hands clenched behind the back project a desire to show control and power.
