How to Use Eye Contact to Improve Your Business and Love Life | The Art of Manliness

You look across the restaurant. Your eyes meet hers. You hold that gaze. And you feel the magic happen! Eye contact is a powerful aspect of body language that conveys a million things by just one look! Click to tweet this

Eye contact is the simplest and yet the most important aspect of body language. It says I am listening, along with other signs like nodding, grunting etc. It helps attract attention of someone in a crowded room jus by the way you focus on looking at one person. And that one look also conveys your intention to the other person. If it invites, it also says stay away. Some have no warmth in their eyes and their smiles don’t reach their eyes.

No matter how connected we are online, nothing can replace personal, one to one contact with people. I found this brilliant post by Art of Manliness on everything that you need to know about eye contact in personal and professional scenarios. Writing a new piece on eye contact seemed futile after reading this wonderfully put together article on the same topic. So here goes:

    “The eyes are the mirror of the soul and reflect everything that seems to be hidden; and like a mirror, they also reflect the person looking into them.” – Paulo Coelho and i so agree to it. In my line of work where important decisions need to be made in split seconds as it involves huge volumes, reading the persons expression, especially the eyes is of paramount importance. I would say its a very unique art trying to guage the other persons thoughts just by reading his/her eyes. Thanks for highlighting this aspect and sharing the article by Art of Manliness. Wonderful read and from a professional point of view offered me a lot of insight. Thank you.

    1. Thanks for taking the time out to comment on my blog. Eyes do reflect more than we notice, or maybe we do subconsciously. And it’s a very critical part of effective body language.
