When talking to someone do you look away a lot, or do you look at them straight in the eye?

    I have a habit of my eyes looking the other way while talking other than looking at them contact to contact.

    i usually look them in the eye, but sometimes i tend to look away if i don't like the person or if they bore me with some annoying conversetion that we had like 100000000 times before.

    Sometimes I have noticed I close my eyes when talk because I have to think what I am saying...and really so when I am serious! If I am kidding I look you in the eye and laugh like a goon!.LOL
  • SEAHORSE 2009/11/06 14:22:02

  • SATAN 2009/11/06 09:52:12 (edited)
    100% eye contact...

    a good practice: look at a area between the eyes or forehead.. saves looking away and they think you're being attentive...

    Just my humble opinion, but most of the times I have been lied to the liar was looking me straight in my eyes. I believe they are concentrating on what they are going to say next. Lying tends to take more concentration than the truth. You do not have to remember the truth. Just tell it.
  • Moonlight148 2009/11/06 02:45:11
    straight at them. I think it freaks some of them out cuz i don't break eye contact.

    When I'm nervous I look away. It could be a symptom of a personality disorder .
  • Merna 2009/11/05 23:55:39

    Straight in the eyes of course.... I learned that during my college years, in my speech class.

    I usually try to keep them on their toes trying to figure out which EYE I am looking in ... I do that by looking between their eyes. You ARE talking about two-eyed people . . . Right??

    Straight in the eye...but not in a terrifying way that suggests I want to hurt them.

    straight eye terrifying hurt

    I could be crying, and I wouldn't look away. The best thing you can do is keep your head held high. That is if they're talking to you.
  • Mikaylah 2009/11/05 21:54:22

  • Knot_RIch 2009/11/05 21:39:48
    Look but don't stare.
    Body language speaks far louder than words. Yours also, people want to know you're paying attention.
  • Holly 2009/11/05 21:23:21
    I like to look people in the eyes so that they know i'm listening, but it's never creepy, i don't stare at them http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/i...

    I tend to look people in the eye. If you look away in business, people assume you're not dealing properly with them.
  • left-libertarian 2009/11/05 21:05:13 (edited)
    When I engage a conversation I have eye contact, but when I listen I face them but I do not hold eye contact the whole time. I find that when talking to someone I loose my train of thought if they are staring blankly into your eyes.
  • Kienlee left-li... 2009/11/05 22:21:21

    As a businessman, I always make eye contact with whom I am speaking with and in groups, I try to make eye contact with everyone at least a couple of times. I think it's rude not to.
  • Connie 2009/11/05 20:22:27
    I'm definitely a 'look them in the eye' person. Gotta watch out for those that constantly look away...

    Had an ex-husband like that once...he was an habitual liar!
