In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

    I’m so glad that the power is in the palms and not in the fists and knuckles, but not enough martial arts utilize it.

  • Brilliant benefactor


    This is absolutely true.

    If you were ever looking for a MANUAL to human behavior read Alan Pease Body Language.

    Watch all of his videos too.

    This is the MOST BASIC and the most IMPORTANT lesson you will EVER learn in life and you will learn it from this guy.

    Everything else you know is PALE compared to the knowledge of body language.

  • Alejandro LARUMBE


    I’ve learned a few things and it was also entertaining so it’s a 9 out 10 for me mate! He’s a good speaker hands down… or up.

  • zachhackz


    Great talk!

  • Jeff Bruce


    straight to the point~~no wasted time with personal „stuff“~~hand/arm + pacing back and forth are very telling~~many speakers do these motions to the n’th degree and are a turn-off because of that~~thx for a poss shake, eh!!

  • AShadowWolf


    What an amazing talk. I’ve seen countless videos and advice about body language and power positions but nothing as simple yet effective as this.

  • Steve Hoag


    The apes use this language / code in the most recent Planet of the Apes trilogy.

    Allan Pease is an Aussie national treasure.

  • Zhuoran Zhou


    He was j doing what more people are familiar with.

  • Kiwi


    yeah, it is about influencing others. palms down is authoritarian, so he should be right? Therefore influencing people better, I assume

  • Direwolf202


    And it works. When someone is running for POTUS under a campaign like Trump’s that is exactly how you want it. With Obama his open palms make you think of him how his campaign wanted you to think.

  • Grigore Cusnir


    watching this in 2016 and trump is using all the negative hand positions.
