Cabrera 1 Kevin Cabrera Professor Lackey Writing and Research 23 October 2016 In Amy Cuddy’s TED talk “Your body languages shapes who you are”, Cuddy entertains and engages her audience by presenting her ideas and experiences of how certain body positions can lead to confidence and success, as well as lead to change how you see yourself. She shapes her message for a general audience by presenting visual examples and her experiences that can relate to most people and be useful in life situations. In Amy Cuddy’s TED talk, her message and purpose is to show how certain poses and positions can lead to confidence, and lead to success in our lives. She says: So social scientists have spent a lot of time looking at the effects of our body language, or other people's body language, on judgments. And we make sweeping judgments and inferences from body language. And those judgments can predict really meaningful life outcomes like who we hire or promote, who we ask out on a date. (2:10- 2:29) Cuddy presents certain images in her slideshow showing certain body positions. Such as high power poses and lower power poses. Cuddy catches the audience’s attention by using humorous pictures that grabs the audience’s attention throughout her talk.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
