Blinking - If Someone Likes What They See, Their Pupil Size Increases and So Does Their Blink Rate

Someone's blink rate can show that they are excited, interested in you or attracted to you.
You may know from my Deception Detection Programs that increased blink rate can be an indication of anxiety and if it suddenly increases in responses to particular questions, like, "Did you steal that?" it may indicate deceit. But, you may not know that increased blink rate just like an increase in pupil size can indicate interest and attraction.

Here is something in the newest research on blinking. You see if someone likes you and is interested in you by doing a blinking test. Try for just for a moment to see if you can use matching and mirroring to increase the blink rate of the person you're talking to by blinking more yourself. If the person likes you, they'll unconsciously try to match your blink rate to keep in sync with you, which in turn, makes you both feel more attracted to each other!
