    Missed 1 of 13. Unless writing or taking notes, I try to maintain eye contact throughout the conversation. And, while rated as incorrect on the quiz, I will continue to try to maintain eye contact throughout the conversation. My rationale for doing so is if the other person only does it occasionally, then they will see that I am attentive and I will see they are attentive. Otherwise, during a short conversation If both of us only do it only occasionally, neither will actually make eye contact at all, and neither will believe the other person was listening. While I do not want them to feel uncomfortable by my contact, I do what them to know that I am interested in what they have to say.
