Amy CuddyBody Language with Amy Cuddy:

Your body language shapes who you are

(September TED Talk)

Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how “power posing” — standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident — can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success.

Amy Cuddy’s research on body language reveals that we can change other people’s perceptions — and even our own body chemistry — simply by changing body positions.

“Don’t fake it till you make it. Fake it till you become it.”- Amy Cuddy
