Always, which makes many people uncomfortable. Someone told me to do that when I was pretty young and I have always done it. Even if I tell a lie I look right into the eyes.

No, not really. It's just too distracting.

Yes-but only quick glances or it looks like staring!

Politicians look us in the eye every day on the TV machine... :(
Even the ones we vote for LIE as a matter of principle so how does a body separate the wheat from the chaff?

Not I. Though 2 months ago my roommate gave a ride to an elderly woman who had “walked too far from home”. Dropped her off at her house. It took about 30 minutes for him to figure out his smart phone was missing. Another 10 minutes to find out nobody where he dropped her off knew her.

At heart I'm a doubter, too... I'm always looking for loopholes. You, too?

Always! Can't stand people who don't look in your eyes while talking. Seems rude to me.

Same here. Without googling (to make sure) I believe the Japanese, for one culture, consider it bad form to look directly into a person's eyes while conversing.

I have to, especially their mouths due to poor hearing. The upside is that I now know what people are saying just by watching their lips. If you just watch their lips and never focus on the eyes, people get a little weirded out.

Jer, I've read that lip readers in the audience watching silent movies were appalled at what some of the actors were actually saying on screen.
