3 ways in which eyes control conversations

Body language is a powerful means of communication. What we do with our head, our hands, and even our body affects the message we send. We all know that crossed arms appear "closed" to others; In addition to many smiles and nods, they appear warm and inviting. Most people don't realize, however, that what we do with our eyes has an equally powerful effect. Here are 3 ways in which the gaze can control a conversation:



1 / Longer gaze -


an invitation to continue speaking. The most powerful person in the group usually sanctions the current speaker's airtime with a supportive and encouraging look. Whenever you continue, he will turn his attention to you. To stop talking, they will break eye contact with you. This can be a great way to gauge how much information people really want from you and when it is time to let others speak.


2 / Look for approval:

look at the group leaders after they have spoken. The person with the most power in the room is often the most viewed. When contributing to the group, one often looks at the ladder when this is sometimes viewed as a search for approval; sometimes it is a signal to return the word; Whatever the reason for the gaze, it indicates that the greatest influence in the room is not coming from the person who just spoke, but from the person who was just gazed at.


3 / No look:

close those Eyes for long periods of time when talking. They don't like what they hear, they close their eyes not to hear the news. This is known as an eye block. Eye blockage can also appear as a communication habit where the person speaking closes their eyes for long periods of time while speaking. be it to help them think, to exclude others, or maybe to focus their message. Whatever the reason, the effect on the listener is often the same; It keeps them from interrupting the person.
