No I don't think I do this at all.
Some people do it all the time, however I tend to speak only with my mouth!

All the time - it's the European in me! I consider myself to be creative and emotional (in a good way) and my flailing arms and hands are an extension of this.
No. I could still keep talking even if my hands were tied. Some people might be sad about that.
No I don't do this, just talk from my mouth

Yes, gives a certain 'gravitas' to the situation!
Yes - I tend to use my hands a lot when I speak

Not normally. I'm not a visual person, so sounds are much more important than images to me, so there's no reason or impulse for me to talk with my hands. Singing and playing music is different - my whole body moves compulsively in time to the rhythm and I find it very hard to sit still at concerts!
I use my hands sometimes. I seem to use them more when I am passionate about something I am talking about.
Yes all the time. Especially when I am passionate about the topic. It an extension of my emotions. Cannot imagine not using my hands.

In so saying I always admire people that calmly state their point for view without waving their arms about in a Mexican wave as I do.

For me it is 'wave' style.

I use both when I am giving talks
Sometimes, not often.
I talk with all of them. Strega
I always talk with my hands and my mouth. It's the way we are meant to talk !
I was taught as a child to never use my hands when I speak, and to keep my hands in my lap when sitting. although I do catch myself using my hands sometimes.
talk with hands
All the time - in fact I would probably be dumb without my hands to express my words! I think it shows your passion for what you are discussing.
. . . *sigh* Yes. I do. Flap flap.

Sometimes I may talk with my hands without realising I'm actually doing it.
