Everyone’s Got a Story: Storytelling and Self-Presentation
When we want to get little kids to eat vegetables, to fall asleep easily and to get into the car, we will often tell them a story. Why? Because a story is an excellent way to create a connection, intimacy and cooperation, emotion and action. It turns out that grownups operate on the same principle. If we wish to lead and influence others, we should also be able to tell stories. Studies show that our ability to absorb information is 11 times better through a story than without it. But we do have to be able to tell it in the first place.
