Eugen_de_Blaas_The_FlirtationCheck out The Center for Nonverbal Communication’s website! While academic, it’s perfect for writers searching for a gesture or movement to describe a character’s emotions. I’ve got it bookmarked!

My favorite non-verbal cue is the Adam’s Apple jump, “an unconscious sign of emotional anxiety, embarrassment, or stress. At a business meeting, e.g., a listener’s Adam’s apple may inadvertently jump should he or she dislike or strongly disagree with a speaker’s suggestion, perspective, or point of view.”
