eyeballing


Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

The process of staring straight into the eyes of another person by orientating the eyeballs so that the object in view is the other person's pupils. Eyeball-to-eyeball contact generally lasts only a few seconds at the most, and is a form of non-verbal communication indicating interest and an increase in arousal. However, in sport, eyeballing is sometimes used purposefully as a psyching technique to agitate and disturb an opponent.
