If you've ever worked with NPCs, you probably know that you can assign idle animation during dialog, packages, any time you want really.
Problem is there's too damn many and they aren't kept in any kind of order.

Here's a list I've been assembling over the past... while. Contains most of what I'd consider "desirable" idles. Most regular dialog ones are emitted (that play when you select use emotion animation), though some are included, ones that I like to trigger on demand.

Be warned, not all of these will work in every given situation. During dialog is the most problematic. You've just gotta experiment. Luckily, assigning bad idles doesn't break anything.

Also, add your own if you have em.
