Eye Contact as a Communication Skill

Discuss eye contact – one of the essential communication skills that people possess.

Imagine standing in the hallway and seeing a person you do not particularly like interacting with. You have eye contact and you are already aware of this person’s intentions. You know that this person will start walking toward you even before they begin to do so, and you casually begin to walk in the opposite direction as if you did not see this individual. How are people able to evaluate facial cues and people’s intentions in such a short period?
