Is it autistic to stand with your hands behind your back all the time?

Is it autistic to stand with your hands behind your back all the time? I've noticed it makes my traps stand out and my triceps really pop.

      If you live in the kind of place where you always have to worry about being attacked, then it must suck not to live in a white neighborhood.

    Yes. I started doing this to keep pressure on my lower back to remind me to stand up straight and I immediately started often getting asked if I'd served in the military. Doing this seems to be akin to stolen valor if you haven't served.

    My grandpa was a renowned doctor and he always stood with his arms behind his back. It did make him look very observant and pronounced but unless you’re someone with a significant (good) reputation I think you’d look autistic.

    It's natural if you have had any military training, first picture is pretty much the position they use for "at ease" which is what I learnt at cadets years ago

    It’s either submissive or high test. No inbetween, you’re either showing a person you’re ready to serve their whims or that you think they’re too weak to attack you

      >that you think they’re too weak to attack you
      I sparred this guy I know a few times, and once he dared me to start with my hands behind my back. I leaned forward, then pulled and caught him with a check hook coming in. He was PISSED

      I do it sometimes, when I'm standing and waiting.
      It's an old fashioned habit for sure.

      I agree with this, a guy in a waiting line told me I look like someone with authority once and I was standing like this, but I can imagine how it would work the other way. In general, most moves that display some clear dominance or submission, could work the other way as well, depending on context and interpretation. Eye contact for example, is usually a dominant aspect, but imagine if the other person is ignoring you, and not because they're getting away from being intimidated.

    #3 is awkward and stupid. 1 and 2 will make you look like an old Pakistani Uncle. But it’s fine, just please don’t walk like that.

    It’s autistic to worry about it. Just be comfy with how you stand

    When I’m standing waiting for something, such as in an elevator, or someone to answer the door, I hold my hands behind my back.
    And yes, it makes my shoulders, chest and arms look bigger as well.

    Both my grandfathers stood and walked like this. Generally only when out shopping, and I picked this up as an unconscious habit when shopping with my female friend. Now it just feels comfy.

    If you’re of med or maybe German (?) descent you can feel like a fking King or President walking around in business casual or dress attire with your hands behind your back.
    If you ever go to a seaside town in Albania every bro over 60 will be doing this.
    The best part is being dead broke does not diminish the satisfaction of the practise. But if you’re a whiteoid then stay in your lane sweetie

    You end up looking like a neckbeard or weeb if you stand like this and aren't old or japanese. It's one of the typical "m'lady I'm quite the intellectual" stances pseuds like to do.

    I think it's a kind of withdrawn body language. Your hands are your tools, and your weapons. And you're hiding them behind your back.

    To grip one with the other, to clutch it tight, is like anxiously clutching to anything else: you're nonverbally trying to catch your balance, fearing instability, clinging to yourself because there's nothing else to hold.

    I prefer to have my arms at rest by my sides, or sometimes they end up on my hips akimbo.
