Respect personal space.

Once someone crosses into our personal space, we become more aggressive and try to defend it at all costs.

Instructions

  1. Respect people’s personal space.
    Once you cross into their space, they may connect negative feelings with you.
  2. When you sit down with others, try to sit next to them, or at a 90-degree angle.
    Avoid sitting in front of them. This more direct position makes the conversation less comfortable.
