8:15-Eye contact may backfire on ya!
A study found that, contrary to popular belief, eye contact may actually make you less persuasive.  In fact, looking people in the eye could potentially have the opposite effect, making the listener less receptive to your message.  Experts say that eye contact is often associated with intimidation and dominance, and can come across as aggressive.

Personally, I believe that we have become so used to using technology to interact that we aren't used to looking people in the eye anymore. So we avoid it and it doesn't feel as natural as it used to. What do you think?
