Your Body Language May Shape Who You Are

This month’s recommended TED Talk is by Amy Cuddy, a social psychologist. Cuddy suffered a severe head injury from a car accident at the beginning of her college career. Doctors told her she may never again reach her full mental capacity and finishing her undergraduate degree was not likely. She decided to prove them wrong and today, Cuddy is a professor and researcher at Harvard. She studies social psychology, specifically how nonverbal behavior affects our judgement.Cuddy TED Talk

Cuddy suggests that body language affects not only how others see us, but also how we see ourselves. Her research shows that we can change the perceptions of others by simply changing our body positioning. The talk is just over 20 minutes long.
