    Explanation
    When people and animals express power and dominance, they often exhibit behaviors that involve expanding, stretching, and opening up. This can include standing tall, puffing out the chest, spreading out limbs, and taking up more physical space. These actions are seen as displays of confidence and assertiveness, signaling to others that they are in control and should be respected. By contrast, closing up and wrapping ourselves up are typically associated with feelings of vulnerability or submission. Mirroring other people's behavior can also be a way to assert dominance, as it can be seen as a form of imitation or mimicry that establishes a sense of control.

    Correct Answer
    Cortisol
    Explanation
    Cortisol is a stress hormone produced by the adrenal glands. It helps regulate various bodily functions, including metabolism, immune response, and blood pressure. During times of stress, cortisol levels increase to provide the body with energy and aid in the fight-or-flight response. However, chronic stress can lead to excessive cortisol production, which can have negative effects on health, such as weight gain, weakened immune system, and increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Therefore, cortisol is commonly associated with stress and its physiological effects.
