It’s called cute agression.
Your brain wants to remain level.
The cute thing is making it go high.
So it turns on the go low.
Low things like aggressive pinching, clenching your fist while making that squee sound.
All those things are more like anger/fear responses and are your brain trying to go back down.

Similar phenomenon are tears of joy and morbid laughter.
