Can we change our body language to change our own behavior? Yes. Your mind can change your body; your body can change your mind.
“Power” hormones are Cortisol (stress), Testosterone (assertiveness)
Two minutes in a power pose can change your hormones levels accordingly.
“Fake it till you make it.” (saying) => Fake it until you become it. (author’s version)
How? Do two-minute exercises in a power pose in private and change your life.

So interview questions and responses and resume content are irrelevant to the hiring process. Only your body language matters. Seems like a ridiculous process.
I try to judge people by what they say and do.
That’s the point. Body language is EASY to fake.
