Understanding Rigors Of Research
Research terminology I see in the speech is case study. Case study is a descriptive research technique in which one person or a small group is studied in depth in hope of revealing universal principles. It fits in the study because she researched a group to see if standing in a certain pose (power pose) would make you feel more powerful.
Big Idea to Hypothesis
Big Idea-You act powerfully you will begin to think powerfully.
Hypothesis-Dr. Cuddy's hypothesis was, pretending to be powerful, by striking a power pose, would make you feel more powerful. As a result make them act more powerful.
Data was tracked by seeing people who stood in powerful fake positions would gamble and if they were confident compared to people that were not.
