Several years ago I read the book titled, Look Me in the Eye, by John Robison. It was about a boy with autism. He was told to look people in the eyes. But he had a question and could not find the answer. “Do I look in the right eye, left eye, or in between the two eyes?” This instruction fell into that gray area of, Do what I tell you to do! (But, they never tell you HOW to do it.)
Recently, I was listening to a podcast. They were interviewing William Vanderbloeman. He teaches employers how to hire the best employees. He was talking about skills that make a person likable. Here is what he said. “To connect well, look deeply into a person’s right eye. Eighty percent of the people are right-handed. That means they are right eye dominant.” There it was, the long awaited answer.
So, now you know a connecting secret. Looking into a person’s right eye makes you more likable and able to create a deeper connection.
Now, go practice looking deeply into your wife’s right eye. I think I’ll try it!
Blessings and Amen.
