Harvard psychologist Zick Rubin tried to calculate using a scientific method possible degree of being in love with another person and managed to get some interesting results. It turns out that the degree of being in love can be measured by the amount of time the person who is in love spend looking at the object of his love. He found that people in love look at each other 75% of the time during the conversation! In addition, lovers are less distracted from the process of observing each other when a third party joins their conversation. While talking to others, people look at each other approximately 30-60% of the time.
This method is called gradation of Rubin. Estimate at least approximate amount of time you spend looking at each other while talking and you can see how interested other person is. This method also helps if you are trying to draw somebody’s attention.
Try looking at person you like approximately 75% of the time whiles you are talking. Man’s mind will react immediately in case he likes you too. As a matter of fact, human brain can react on prolonged gaze of opposite sex and we begin thinking that we are in love and our brain starts actively producing an enzyme called Phenylethylamine.
Phenylethylamine is a chemical brother of amphetamines. It is produced by nervous system when we are falling for other person. It is this enzyme that makes us blush, get excited and feel our heart thumping faster when we see that person.
Clearly it is not possible to draw other person’s attention with the help of Rubin’s gradation only especially when you see that this person is not attracted to you what so ever. However you can use this method if you feel that other person is interested and you want to enhance the impression. You can try it and you will like the results. Let the other person understand that you are in love with him and it will be easier for him to admit that he is in love with you too.
