There have been many studies done by researchers on the connection that our body and mind have, where our body influences the mind, known as, embodied influence. These studies being made by the researchers has long been used to find out different reactions of the mind in terms of bodily behavior.
The influence of the body on the mind is tremendous. We generally see that people’s behavior is reflected in their attitude. Our expressions and reactions change our moods and behavior. For example, if we are in a good mood, we smile and keep happy than when we are sad. Similarly, positive responses like nodding head for confirming something is better responded to than shaking the head in negation.
It is a fact that the body has the capacity to influence attitude but studies have not yet made it clear if our body can also affect attitude because of our psychological condition. These relations are important to understand to know how and when our attitudes will be influenced and will lead to further changes in our actions.
So, it is clear that our responses that help in the persuasion setting influence our attitude. We must understand that only a few of our behavior has been examined in researches done on persuasion, but there are still innumerable ones that remained unexamined.
However, the fact that our bodily actions can influence our choices and preferences, and our likes and dislikes, is an interesting fact for people to know.
