In the last episode, I shared my resilience experiment and how I doubled my productivity with the Pomodoro technique. Today, I’ll show you how to exude confidence with the Wonder Woman power pose. We also talk about faking it ‘til you become it!

Self-Help Crash Test Dummy Experiment

Based on the TED talk Your body language shapes who you are by Amy Cuddy, I observed the nonverbal of others (and monitored my reactions) and practiced powering posing before a stressful meeting. I also let you in on a little secret, everyone fakes it! Well until they become it.

Results of My Self-Test Crash Test Dummy Experiment

  • Power posing felt odd, but I was more calm and confident going into the stressful meeting
  • Wonder if lady-like manners I was taught as a child may make me behave in “small” ways
