Tips on eye contact :

Eye contact is important in many countries. In Western culture, maintaining eye contact in conversation is necessary. As a matter of fact, a Westerner might consider lack of eye contact as lack of attention or interest.


In Spain, France, Italy and Greece, where people stand close together talking to each other, eye contact is more frequent and lasts longer.

Eye contact is a subtle thing. If you do not have it, you might be considered impolite. But too much eye contact could also lead to trouble, for staring at others is considered rude and should always be avoided.
