What social psychologist Amy Cuddy presents here is remarkable – the mind doesn't just influence the body, the body also influences the mind. Striking a “power pose” for two minutes causes a scientifically documented increase in confidence (testosterone level) and decrease in stress (cortisol level).
This finding is profound! And it's applicable to our everyday lives. In any stressful situation (job interview, public speaking, evaluation, competition etc.) a two minute “power pose” can make you more confident and less stressed.
