What influences what?
Choose the correct affirmation.

 
Yes! You got it :)

Both are true.

Our body language reflects how we feel, but also the way we hold our body will change the hormonal balance in our brain and make us feel different. In just two minutes of high power, or low power posing our stress (cortisol) and power (testosterone) hormones will change.

8. Reading body language in photos *

How would you describe this lady?


 
Good job!

Any time we cross our arms in front of our body, it's in reaction to a form of emotional or physical discomfort, or to indicate that we are not open to discussion.
 
You answered {{answer_24550738}}

Even though she's smiling, any time we cross our arms in front of our body, it's in reaction to a form of emotional or physical discomfort, or to indicate that we are not open to discussion.

If the intention for the picture is to show a closed message, then it's a good cue to use, but you'll want to stay away from crossed arms pictures when wanting to convey a {{answer_24550738}} feeling to your image.
 
9. The power of a photograph *

Is is true that in just one second of viewing someone’s photograph, we will have made a long lasting judgement about their competence, likability, trustworthiness and even their leadership skills?

 
That's correct!

The first impression we get of a person by viewing their photograph will have a long lasting effect on our relationship with this person.

Within one second we will have made a judgement about their competence, likability, trustworthiness, leadership skills, sexual orientation and availability... and we'll decide then and there if we like this person or not.

Even after meeting them in person, it will take quite some time to change our opinion of the person.
