Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are. Amy Cuddy


This talk presents- a powerful process of how to use our physical body posture to affect our emotional state. NOTE- There has been considerable academic controvery over the validity of Amy's study.(and controversy over some of the critique. I think this is still a valuable piece to watch, and if you are interested, Read the commentary and discussion on the TED.com website. Personally I have found consciously adjusting my posture to better engage in a situation has been useful. And some posture not reflecting power or domination have been particularly useful.
