Aim - does eye movement have an effect on the flow of peoples converstaions.

Method - Asked pairs of participants to get aquainted. Conversations were being secretly watched by observers using a one way mirror.

Results - When one person was about to speak they looked away from the other person, they avoided eye contact. There were also pauses in the converstation.

Conclusion - Eye Movement keeps a converstaion going by signalling them to take turns.

Evaluation - Its unethial as pairs didnt know they were being watched. It lacked in ecological validity.
