...I realise that before I can interact freely with another, I have to establish some kind of connection...
The term you're looking for here is 'rapport'. It's a word that is remarkably offensive to some people, as it suggests a certain shallowness to interpersonal communications to them. It's really not the case -- it's a question of whether the person speaking to you sets you at ease through the use of a myriad of things -- posture, tone, verbiage, etc. -- or whether they are unfamiliar to you, cause you discomfort, etc.

You are what you think.

    Thanks, rapport is exactly the word.

    But as you say, it comes loaded with connotations and images of salesfolk bearing Shit-Eating GrinsTM, which isn't quite the idea I wanted to describe.
