Definition: Personal space refers to the distance needed between people when they interact. Have you ever been in an uncomfortable situation where a person stood too close to you while you conversed? The cause of that discomfort can be influenced by a number of factors, including how well you know the individual and the type of situation you are in. For example, we typically require less personal space when talking to family and close friends. Situations such as public speaking tend to require considerably more personal space.
