The Language of Attitude

Attitude is a subtle change in posture, tone of voice, language, or accent. A teller's ability to use all of his/her faculties to change the attitude of a story without the audience having to work at it is one of the most powerful tools a storyteller has. A shift in attitude can be created by using many different methods. When a teller can take an audience from laughing to crying without the members of the audience having to work for the emotion, the teller has achieved a drastic change in attitude with great success.
