Your body language reveals a lot about you, but can you reform it to change people’s perceptions of you and, ultimately, alter your personality? Social psychologist Amy Cuddy addresses this question by explaining the power of nonverbal behavior. She passionately discusses her research and offers useful tips to help individuals change their lives in a meaningful way. Cuddy achieves a pleasing balance between scientific findings and moving personal anecdotes. getAbstract warmly recommends her inspiring presentation to all who seek a simple method to boost their confidence and feel more empowered.
In this summary, you will learn
- How your body language influences other people’s perceptions of you,
- How it affects your mind and hormones, and
- How “power posing” can help you “fake it till you become it.”
