Amy Cuddy: Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are!

In this Ted Talk (21.02mins) Social Psychologist Amy Cuddy: Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are and 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: Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are!

The talk begins with Amy asking the audience to become aware of your body language and how we sit (and fills you in as to why towards the end). Amy then goes on to talk about –

  • How we are fascinated with body language and in particular other people’s body language
  • How we are also influenced by our own non-verbals (thought, feelings and body physiology)
  • Non-verbal communication examples of power and dominance as well as powerlessness
  • How participating in a class can have an impact on your body language
  • Do our non-verbals govern how we think and feel about ourselves?
  • We know our minds change our bodies, but do our bodies change our minds (thoughts, feelings & hormones)?
  • Can power posing for a few minutes really change our life in meaningful ways?
  • The impostor phenomenon or syndrome and the concept of faking it until you become it and internalise it.
