Stanford Scientists Identify Body Language Tied to Creativity, Learning

By Bjorn Carey

Your body language can hint at your emotional state. Scientists in the Communication Department now find that observing subtle changes in your torso and head movements can predict creative output or learning ability.

A person's shoulder and head movements can indicate their creative output or ability to learn. The ability to quickly scan another person's body language or expression to get a quick read on what they're thinking or feeling is a handy trick that most humans possess. Show up late for dinner, and all it takes is a glance of your mother's body language to know that you're in trouble.

New research by a pair of Stanford scientists reveals that quantitative analysis of such nonverbal cues can indicate a person's ability to learn and the strength of their creative skills.

AW14 Style for Plus-size Girls

Courtesy of The Carpenters Daughter

With every look met by applause at The Carpenters Daughter (TCD) Autumn Winter 2014 show, it's obvious there's something very special about this designer brand.

Producing 100% New Zealand made designs in sizes 12 to 24, it's not just TCD's sizings that are generous. Creative Director Caroline Marr's fan-base are as kind as they are curvy. We've taken the best AW14 looks to bring you the d-low on plus-size style for this season.

The Carpenters Daughter, AW14

Asymmetric hemlines have been seen all over AW14 runways of the Big 4. TCD shows how this cut can also flatter the plus-sized figure. The ruching of the Kelly dress streamlines your shape and simultaneously minimises unwanted bulge. Capitalise on the curves created by resisting the temptation to cover-up with a bulky coat. Style instead with a cropped jacket or fur vest as pictured. Accessorise with a long necklace to draw the eye to your mid-line and you've got a winning look!

Sheer layers may be revealing but don't always have to leave you scantily clad. For this reason we love the styling of TCD's Lace Lounge Dress over striped tights creating an optical illusion with gorgeous movement. With an open rounded neckline the torso is elongated giving a slimming effect. We love this look as a date night or few cheeky drinks alternative ♥ - read more
