How Your Body Language Changes Your Hormonal Levels and Emotions
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 is a social psychologist whose research on body language reveals that we can change other people’s perceptions — and even our own body chemistry — simply by changing body positions.
She is a professor and researcher at Harvard Business School, where she studies how nonverbal behavior and snap judgments affect people from the classroom to the boardroom.
