You can gain attention by stimulating people’s senses and imagination. Your clothing, posture, hand gestures, eye contact and smiles can all appeal to the sense of sight. Your voice tone can hold interest especially by giving praise, asking a question or telling a lively story. Paint pictures with your words; involve people by putting them in the picture, and saying "You ...". Express your enthusiasm to be more interesting! Talking into a mirror with smiling eye contact and gestures is helpful. How and why will you make contact with someone?
