Why do body language experts claim that hands-in-pocket is not dominant, displays shyness, etc?

I can see how crossing your arms looks like you're standoffish. But the pockets thing is weird because it seems like there are ways for someone to have one or two hands in their pockets and still look like they're comfortable in their environment, dominant, etc.

Display of knuckles is considered a dominant body language trait.

If you want to look dominant with hands in your pockets - stick out your thumbs and point them towards your junk like pic related.

picking a single "trait" in nonverbal communication just does not work, you always need to see the whole picture, including the context of the situation.

Does anyone have any books, documentaries or sources on info on non-verbal communication like this?

I've read a little on the subject because social engineering is interesting to me but would love some more material.

It depends on your posture. If you put your hands in your pockets you can seem laid back.

Literally no one gives a shit about this if you make more money and if you're a authoritative figure then people will respect you

This is kind of a bad example because Don Draper is almost always FUCKING TERRIFIED that someone will find out he isn't Don Draper, so he's probably not comfortable in loads of environments.

Because it's submissive, you're making yourself take up less room, and you're telling all the other competition that you are a not a threat.
