Eye contact is very important, in fact observation of such and body language is imperative in interactive and successful communication person to
person, face to face.
Such skills are measured in all situations, formally and informally, it is how we analyse a person.
As an artist, I am very observant of people and of environment, surroundings, audio visual impressions etc and I have to curb this slightly sometimes
so as not to unsettle people.
Something of an observation on interactions on how aware and observant others are to each other, it appears people are less aware than they used to
be, perhaps due to social media. The whole 'selfie' thing has also brought more personal awareness as a 'princess' factor, in that some people have
developed more self appreciative awareness and almost expect to be looked at rather than interacting in normal communication, this is especially
evident in teenagers, not surprisingly, more prevalent in females.
Hopefully, as such generations age, they will realise that actual person to person communication is important as it is an imperative skill that they
need to know for when they have children, babies pick up on visual communication cues from birth and continually.
Whole group teaching styles and media based classrooms might also have impacted on generations of impressionable children which they have taken into
