I think about body language a lot–particularly when I’m in court. I am always very aware of my posture and position when I am sitting listening to testimony and certainly when I am on the stand. There’s no question body language influences how people see you and assumptions that are subsequently made. But I hadn’t really considered how body language impacts our own self-concept.
It’s with this in mind that I wanted to post this new TED talk by Amy Cuddy, a professor at Harvard Business School. Not forensically focused in any way, but a fascinating talk nonetheless:
