Sunglasses, Hierarchy, and Negotiations: Gender Differences in Eye Gaze During Interpersonal Communication

The present study demonstrates a different pattern of results when the eyes of a negotiating partner are blocked from sight with sunglasses. The results are discussed in the context of social hierarchy research.
