Whether you’re doing endless meetings from home or a physician wondering why most patients prefer phone consultations over video, we all need to be aware of why many of us feel a sense of annoyance or anxiety related to video conferencing.

As ZdoggMD aptly explains, the subconscious visual & body language cues that we normally process during a one-on-one conversation, are blunted or distorted or absent. Instead of intermittent natural eye contact, we stare incessantly into a camera lens. And if the latency is just normal, not super high speed, then our focus is even more distracted. Add in the 2-Dimensional aspect and the whole experience feels less guinine or less natural than a phone call.
