Eye contact- what is normal?
Okay, I noticed that I avert my eyes a lot from a person's gaze while talking to them, but I usually only do it in prolonged and/or formal converstations. I'm SURE you guys do this, too. I used to avert people's eyes completely, but now I don't have a problem looking at them- I just feel weird looking at them for such long periods of time, or, if they're a higher status than I am, I feel like I'm acting proud or pompous.
I considered this to be normal until recently. Do others usually avert thier eyes (not for a long time, but just like glancing at the door or the picture on the wall, or the tv, or the carpet, for a short time and then returning his gaze to the speaker)? Or is this just another symptom for SA?
