* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'': CanonImmigrant Grand Admiral Thrawn, just like his above-mentioned ''Legends'' counterpart, is almost-always in a ReverseArmFold stance while making observations -- and often in his private, art-filled chambers.

* There's a brief instance in ASongOfIceAndFire where Tywin Lannister goes over to the window and does this. However, it's subverted because Tyrion realises that [[TheStoic Tywin's]] only doing this because [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness he has actually been rattled by what's just happened]], ([[spoiler:it's finally been driven home to him just [[TheCaligula how dangerously inept and uncontrollable Joffrey has become]]]]) and is trying to hide this while he regains his composure.

* This is a signature of Jack Donaghy on ThirtyRock. Usually with a glass of Scotch. Later in the series, he even directs Lemon to the other window- where guests stare. At one point, he stares out the window of a recreation of his office on a movie set...at nothing.

* Catherine Weaver displays all the classic signs of this trope in ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'', launching into long, philosophical monologues while in her office. Most of the time she doesn't even seem to notice the other person is there, and appears to just be rambling to herself. Odd behavior for a [[spoiler: T-1001 terminator.]]
