The idea of writing post titles to be Human friendly has virtue. I personally don’t find keyword heavy post titles attractive in any way. In fact, I rather agree with the video’s author that this can appear as spam like and actually discourage people from wanting to read your post. I usually avoid post’s that have too many keywords in the title. This gives me the idea that the content may not be interesting because the authors so interested in getting the keywords out there they come accross like a spsm email subject line.

There’s also the simple fact that just because a post title is attractive to Search Engines that does not mean it is attractive to readers.

Search Engines may rank posts, but only ones that readers like. The number of people who choose to view a post has as much or more effect on how high a post gets ranked in search results for a given keyword. The more views a post gets the higher it will rank. And there’s no way around it. A compelling title will always get more clicks than a Search Engine Friendly one will. Considering your options, this is really no problem if you make use of the other tip from the video about  creating your post URL’s for the Search Engines and your post titles for Humans. This is very simple to do in WordPress since you are alowed to edit the post title by way of changing the Permalink in the post editing screen. Use the link under the post title to do this.
