I can give some examples within the field of my interest, knowledge and own experience, but there may be many more possibilities.
Sexual attraction/infatuation: someone feels sexually attracted to you or is in love with you and often looks at them automatically and unconsciously very much in the eyes.
Harassment: Intense eye contact may indicate anger for some reason or to frighten the other.Often you can recognize other signals, such as a red head and wide open eyes.
Idealization: Sometimes it may seem as if someone who idealizes you is in love with you, but in reality it is someone who is very much looking at you and in a non-romantic way, for some reason it is absolutely amazing.
Autism: Some people with autism make intense eye contact and don’t look away quickly.In fact, most have difficulty in making eye contact and avoiding it, or understanding the timing of when they ‘ hear ‘ away from looking good. In autism, unwritten social rules are not automatically included in the brain.
Narcissists: Narcissists can sometimes very stare as soon as they manipulate someone in which they try to gauge the reaction of the other or try to observe the behavior, but usually the staring at such a moment goes through when you do not have eye contact Makes.This often goes along with gas-lighting, brainwashing or scare tactics.
Psychopathy: Psychopaths seem to make eye contact more intense, because they do not know feelings of discomfort, embarrassment and boundaries.It has also been proven that they blink less often with their eyes, making it look as if they are looking at you more more intense.
I myself have an intense cataracts by nature: I am slightly autistic, I have been pulling the antisocial personality disorder and I idealize every now and then someone pretty intense.I don’t feel good about when something is inappropriate. I also recognise myself as a long-lasting cataracts as soon as I am angry with someone and want them to feel intimidated, when I find someone sexually appealing or when I fall in love.
In general, my intense eye contact is interpreted as charming, which can cause weird and uncomfortable situations.In my case, it attracts people and think a lot of people (including the elderly and people I don’t find attractive) that I find them nice or attractive, while that’s not so.
I see it more often in people and depending on their further behavior/occurrence, intense eye contact can be intimidating, uncomfortable or just charming, but it certainly doesn’t necessarily mean anything. It will not happen so soon that you have a narcissist or a psychopath for you who exhibits this behavior, so much they do not come before.
The analysis of eye contact is not an exact science.People make eye contact for various reasons and as Wilko observes, if it lasts too long, you call that staring.
Over to an anecdote from real life.
Once we had a boss who could get pretty hysterically out of the corner.When he got a tantrum while eating a sandwich tartare, he didn’t wait until he had swallowed a bite to start calling, with the result that there-Edelman food flew around in it.
Every morning we gathered at a long table, which usually came down to criticizing Spuide about the work -or rather: the inscience -of everyone and remarkable conclusions drew from news releases.
This is what he saw in the technique of cloning.Not only did he want to let his dog clone to please his wife, but he found it a wonderful idea to let himself be cloned, “so you will never be from me again”.
Whoever dared to look at him at such a moment, immediately got a chapped canonade over himself.
A colleague who had studied criminology told me that her professor claimed that people who react so aggressively to eye contact are psychopaths…
I send you all a virtual kind wink.
It is a myth that people who lie do not make eye contact.In fact, the opposite is often true. Someone who is lying will keep an eye on your reactions, to see if you have signs of doubt.
Now you should not directly distract from this, that someone who makes a lot of eye contact is lying.;)
People make average during a call for up to 20% of the total time eye contact.These are short moments of 3 -5 seconds. When someone watches us between 7 -10 seconds, we begin to feel uncomfortable, we have the idea that the person is ‘ stargailing ‘ us.
Exceptions are naturally intimate eye contacts.My partner’s eyes… I can look at it for hours.
How do you know for sure that someone is making eye contact immediately?Direct eye contact implies reciprocity, when simply staring it does not have to be the case. Someone can also stare for themselves. Staring doesn’t have to be worrying.
Staring worrying, may be worrying again.Scopophobia is an anxiety disorder, which can often induce paranoia in this person with the anxiety disorder. It is associated with psychosis and particularly with the disease schizophrenia.
For me, it’s normal to watch someone when I’m talking.But if someone says nothing about it, that is worrying indeed.
Neither.If it is someone of the opposite sex, it always means that he or she finds you attractive. If that person is trustworthy, you have to wait and see. That person is confident in any case. (For homosexual people, the gender is of course reversed). As long as the person in question does not appear to be a psychopath, there seems to be no cause for concern.
If someone makes a direct eye contact, it can be for several reasons: someone wants to tell you something, or someone wants to show you something (nonverbal), someone tries to intimidate or manipulate you etc.It is thus in the context, and can therefore be both positive and negative. You cannot draw conclusions or someone is (un) trustworthy or not.
Normal eye contact lasts between 3 and 7 seconds.
No eye contact often indicates shame (historical lie)
Constant eye contact often indicates constant deception.
It is precisely the liars who hold extremely good eye contact.
BEWARE: This is a warning that you need to adjust, only if you have two or three further signals (word choice, body language, etc.) You can assume that you are calling.
No though, some people are actors and know how to cheat.
