Our view of ourselves effects the length of eye contact we feel comfortable with.
Normal eye contact is 3.2 seconds. Our view of ourselves effects the length of eye contact we feel comfortable with. Research shows that more comfortable and warm we feel ourselves to be the longer we like making eye contact. Goodness! that explains why enjoy mutual gaze so much! I like the emotional intimacy of extended eye contact with people I like and trust.
