I know this is different to being in a fight, but posture definitely tells your body something, nothing to do with psychology.
Well actually it's everything to do with psychology, perception. There's nothing objective about any of these matters, if you perceived that walking around hunched over was an alpha male characteristic then I'm sure you'd feel more confident walking around hunched over. It is an evolutionary thing walking around trying to make yourself look bigger but it all comes down to what you personally believe that makes the biggest difference.
