Your body language shapes who you are [TED] - Amy Cuddy

Your body language shapes who you are [TED] - Amy Cuddy | Mapmakers | Scoop.it

   Amy Cuddy wasn’t supposed to become a successful scientist. In fact, she wasn’t even supposed to finish her undergraduate degree. Early in her college career, Cuddy suffered a severe head injury in a car accident, and doctors said she would struggle to fully regain her mental capacity and finish her undergraduate degree.

   But she proved them wrong. Today, Cuddy is a professor and researcher at Harvard Business School, where she studies how nonverbal behavior and snap judgments affect people from the classroom to the boardroom. And her training as a classical dancer (another skill she regained after her injury) is evident in her fascinating work on "power posing" -- how your body position influences others and even your own brain.

   “Don't fake it till you make it. Fake it till you become it.” Amy Cuddy’s research on body language reveals that we can change other people’s perceptions — and even our own body chemistry — simply by changing body positions. "Using a few simple tweaks to body language, Harvard researcher Amy Cuddy discovers ways to help people become more powerful."

Atheism 2.0 - Alain de Botton [Video]

Welke aspecten van religie zouden atheïsten (respectvol) kunnen adopteren? Alain de Botton suggereert een "religie voor atheïsten" -- noem het Atheïsme 2.0 -- die religieuze vormen en tradities adopteert ter bevrediging van onze menselijke behoefte aan connectie, ritueel en transcendentie.
