Like what is said above, the way we communicate depends on everyone and every situations. Sometimes, verbal communication is more needed than the eye contact, otherwise, it's the opposite case.

Whaterver the case, eyes are more confident than conversations. They can reflect the truth that lies within us.

Well I think most of the people communicate more thru their hands and fingers expressions rather than words or eyes.

In my opinion it is true. Signs which we send by our gazes are often natural reaction make by our brains, so this kind of communication is truer.We send this signs all time even to unknown people who we accidentally met. In contrast words are rarely used.

In my opinion the eyes can be used to communicate. Looking someone in the eye, we can determine whether telling the truth. Another thing is that people often fall in love when you look at each other.

I agree with that we can communicate with our eyes, but from my point of view we don't do this often than communicate with words. I believe we use eyes to communicate as often as words. We can express a lot of things using eyes and words separately and concomitantly too.

According to me we can communicate with our eyes. I think that we do it as often as useing words. Sometimes you don't need words to say something for example your friend and she or he will understand you.

In my opinion people communicate more with their eyes than with words because for example when we talk with someone and we look in his/her eyes we alwasy can see if this person is lying or telling the truth. What is more when we know someone since our birth and we spend with this person a lot of free time sometimes we do not need to talk to know about what this person is thinking at the moment.

Acording to me, it is true. People communicate more with eyes than words, because eye contact is the most important thing in conversation. When you say something you can lie, but eyes always say the truth. I would rather talking face to face than f.e. chatting.

I think that basis of interpersonal communication are the words but during difficult discussion people often lie. Telling lies is very easy its only few words but we can fast note it when we look in someone eyes. Eyes always say the truth.

We communicate more than words, when we speaking to each other, but the real question is, which communicate is more important? We always speaking to communicate, it cant be different, but in the most of situation words arent enought. You can see from eyes that somebody want to say something completly different, or you can see feeling this person, it is really important not only words.

I'm agree with this sentence.
Our eyes usually say true. If we are sad, are eyes are sad.
In the world there are a lot of people who can talk everythink about ourselves. Probably, in our eyes can look our nature and soul.
During communicate, eyes have a great role. They help us to fully understand other person, because they express all feelings.

I don't really know if we communicate more with our eyes, but I think that we communicate other things with our eyes, or in general, with our body or with the nonverbal communication. There are so many things that we lose when we have a written conversation, in chats or forums, because we can't know what intonation is using the other person or, most important, which are the feelings that the other person are feeling in that moment. That's one of the biggest inputs of nonverbal communication, without words, another person can tell what is happening to you only by looking at you.
