Eye Contact: Intimidation or Positive Communication?
"Make sure that when you make eye contact with others that it's not coming across as intimidation," says Alessandra. "If a person doesn't seem happily willing to make eye contact with you, consider your technique."
--Are you staring coldly? (As if you were a participant in a staring contest?)
--Are you relaxing your facial features and connecting warmly with the other person?
"Eye contact works best when it's not construed as intimidation," continues Alessandra. "Practice making eye contact with yourself in a mirror. Would you want to make eye contact with yourself during conversation? The answer to that question will help you determine how and what ways you may need to readjust your eye contact technique."
