Hand gestures that are larger than the outlines of your body -- communicates a large idea or concept. But if all your hand gestures are large you will communicate that you are chaotic or out of control.
Though I guess it's not so much that Lynn's hand gestures are necessarily larger than her body, but that she flails. But I think she does convey "chaotic or out of control."
