    What do these hand signs mean? I find myself doing them a lot, especially when concentrating, or ...

    reading & absorbing information..?

    The first means 'okay, that's fine or okay to go ahead' and the second, usually used by preachers in their sermons, to stress a point or quote made in the bible in reference to God's words. 

    Lecturers use that sign to signify '1 further point that needs to be clarified'.  I've seen teachers use the second sign to emphasise an instruction, by saying 'Now remember....'.

    The first hand sign of the circle made with index finger and thumb would seem to indicate that what you are reading (or absorbing) rings true to your current sense of the matter, or that it is a good or appropriate message which appeals to you, in that it is something that you would want. It may even be that this sign is an indication the message you are receiving concurs with your own, and may indeed even further support your developing understanding of the particular objective you have afoot.
    The second sign of the raised index finger may be a subconscious or automatic way for you to verify and recognize the importance of the incoming message, and perhaps also a way for you to log it more importantly into your conscious memory, as the primary or principle point to consider. Conversely, it may also mean a “wait a minute” or “slow down” objection worthy of further review or hashing out. Nevertheless, it is still an indication of a prime point to regard in your further deliberation of the matter you are currently taking in.
    On the other hand, it could just mean “Nice One!”

    For me, the 1st hand sign is in meditation state. The 2nd hand sign will be knowing the answer to a question.

    It probably helps you to concentrate and absorb the info.
    But the right answer may come if you ask yourself.
    Sometimes I wake up in the morning and a few words of some song repeats in my head.
    I ask a question:"What does it mean",and usually I get response from my subconscious.

    first one "OK", second one "Got it" or "I understand" as in your case, possibly when something you read seems strange but eventually it clicks and you accept and understand it.

    I might answer the first gesture in the hub but the second gesture I think is 'one' or 'up'
