Eye Movements in Communication
You will be able to discover that by looking at someone’s eyes, you could tell HOW they think!
Eye-movement can allow us to study how people process visual information in real time as they are engaged in a specific task. The eye-movement is also one way of categorising exactly what a person does inside their head as they think.
Patterns of eye movements will enable us to know how the brain controls the eyes to select, extract, and use visual information in communication. We are not so much interested in content and do not get involved in the content.
The next time, pay attention to the process of your interaction with others. You will be able to have clue how they think. Try it out!
