Enjoy!

RANDOM TIDBITS

Research suggests that assuming a "power pose" makes people feel more powerful and actually changes testosterone and cortisol levels in the body. Practicing "power poses" before an important meeting for 2-3 minutes will help you feel more powerful.

***

Arms akimbo (a standing person whose extended arms are out in a V pattern with the hands placed on the hips, thumbs backward) is a powerful territorial display that is used to establish dominance or indicate that there are "issues." Women tend to use arms akimbo less often than men.

***

The "hooding affect" is a powerful territorial display among humans. Interlaced hands behind the head are indicative of comfort and dominance. Usually the senior person at a meeting will pose or "hood" this way.

***

Fingertips planted and spread apart on a surface are a significant territorial display of confidence and authority.

***

Hand-steepling may be the most powerful high-confidence hand gesture. It involves touching the spread fingertips of both hands in a gesture similar to praying hands, but the fingers are not interlocked and the palms may not be touching. In the U.S., women tend to steeple low (at the waist), while men tend to steeple at chest level.
