Tactical De-Escalation

The photo above is of the actor Vin Diesel in a de-escalation pose. He’s using his lead hand to create a barrier, which is sometimes called a fence. And with his rear hand he’s displaying a
primal threat indicator (a pointed finger).

Together with his facial expression they make the statement that he’s serious about telling you to stay away (low lead hand)... and if you push the situation he’s got you targeted (rear hand).

It's a psychological message that will register (unconsciously) with the person who just annoyed him!
