I never realized how important body positions were when it comes to important situations like a job interview or taking a test. The way you sit, stand, and place your arms and legs really says a lot about your confidence. If you can stretch your arms instead of crossing them, you automatically feel more confident. This same thing goes for the legs as well. Crossing ankles and arms gives a sense of being closed off. The woman in the Power Poses video starts off with her hands on her hips like Wonder Woman. This shows power and creates a sense of dominance and authority. Statistics show that the more stretched out and confident you look, the more likely someone is to hire you rather than someone who seems closed off and insecure.
