Create Emotional Connections By Doing This

We aren’t creating as many emotional connections with others because we are lacking doing this one thing. 


It seems so simple, but most of us do not do it enough. To create an emotional connection with another person, you are supposed to make eye contact with that person for at least 70 percent of the conversation. A new study by Quantified Impressions, a communications analysis company, found that most people do not make enough eye contact when talking to other people. In fact, most people only keep eye contact between 30 percent and 60 percent of the time. When you don’t maintain eye contact during a conversation, it makes you look uninterested in the other person. It also can make you look untrustworthy or nervous. If you didn’t already guess, a main reason why we lack in this department is because of looking at our phones too much. Two other main reasons are because of carelessness and disrespect. There are a few eye contact etiquette guidelines that you can follow if you are one of those people who struggle with locking eyes. When in a one-on-one conversation, you should hold eye contact between seven to 10 seconds at a time with that person. When in a large group conversation, you should only hold eye contact between three to five seconds at a time.  So if you feel a little awkward looking into the eyes of another, make sure you stay in a pack to chat.
