    What does this "posturing." mean? "Physical position" or "hypocritical attitude"?
    ex) Daniel, a freshman in college, enrolled in a public speaking course. There was one senior in the class named Rick, who spoke with authority. Daniel would sit fascinated by the sound of his voice. Rick would stand behind the podium, almost motionless, with only the slightest twist of the wrist or a subtle tilting of his head to emphasize a point. What confidence! Daniel now had a role model for speaking.
    As he practiced his speech, Daniel literally spent hours trying to mimic Rick’s deep, resonant musical notes. As he practiced, his body wanted to dance. But Daniel restricted his movement, so he could mimic Rick’s subtle gestures and posturing.
