Personal Space…How Close is “Too Close”?

In speaking with a friend of mine at a recent conference, he said, “Wow, that person is a close talker, he tends to invade my personal space” Of course, this got me wondering…“how close is too close”?

When I asked him what he considered to be “too close”, he said that he thinks 2-3 feet is too close. I thought about his answer and to me, that seems right…I guess…but I really want to know what other people think!

So I ask you today:

  • How close is someone to you when they are invading your personal space?
  • How much does your answer change if the person is a good friend or a family member?

    I look forward to reading your comments!
