Eye Contact With Strangers in City, Suburb, and Small Town
Newman, Joseph; McCauley, Clark
Environment and Behavior, 9, 4, 547-58, Dec 77
Eye contact with a stranger was relatively rare in center-city Philadelphia, more common in a suburb, and very common in a small rural town. Speaking occurred only with eye contact. These results suggest that social interaction in the city is an adaptation to overload of interpersonal contacts. (Author/MA)
