    What do you mean exactly? Are you looking for body language that people would use to give themselves power? Or for specific quotes?

    OK well I'll give you some ideas...I don't know if they'll be of much use:

    To show that a person has power they might control their emotions well. Uncontrollable emotions are a sign of weakness. Being comfortable in any situation is powerful especially if you can make the other person uncomfortable. Basically having higher status for any reason gives you power. If you speak the language better, you know what you're talking about, if you're rich, older, wiser, whatever. People who don't need to repeat themselves. People who don't need to ask others to repeat. If you're alert in a conversation, you have more power. I really don't know if this is any good to you.
