Hey, how are you guys doing today? This is my first thread so wish me luck aha... I was wondering if the tendency to make eye-contact follows blood type and/or secretor status. I think that people who are blood type O are probably much more likely to not maintain proper eye-contact, and if there is a difference between secretor status then it's the nonnies (is that how you spell that aha?- I don't like that word, but all the cool kids are saying it) that are less likely to make good eye-contact.

If you remember having a hard time getting used to making eye-contact, or anything like that, I'd be happy to hear about it. Thanks friends.

think it has to do with education and self assurance.....
I am a LDN which is defined as being a 'double non secretor' and was taught by my parents to always make eye contact!!!
and also to be polite.....

Diplomats in all the sense of the word!

Yeah, that's definitely part of it but it's part genetic too, it's not in my nature to make eye-contact. Some people may interpret this as rudeness, so I make eye-contact as much as I can but if I make eye-contact when I have something in mind it erases my short-term memory. This might go along with my ADD-inattentive type, but my friend growing up was the same way and he didn't seem to have ADD. After awhile he learned to consistently make eye-contact, but his eye-contact is still inappropriate because he maintains 100% eye-contact now. I've confirmed with his sister that he didn't used to make unnatural eye-contact like this but he does now all of the time, so I'd rather be true to myself and make less eye-contact than I should (by modern standards) than teach myself to stare at people.

In people native to the Americas, Africa, and Asia maintaining eye contact is often seen as aggressive and rude Ś the opposite reaction of most Western societies.

"A study by University of Stirling psychologists concluded that children who avoid eye contact while considering their responses to questions had higher rates of correct answers than children who maintained eye contact. One researcher theorized that looking at human faces requires a lot of mental processing, which detracts from the cognitive task at hand.[16]"

to make eye contact and to stare are two different things, I agree!

Oh yeah, thanks Sedulous I forgot to mention that part entirely. I used to have much worse eye-contact when I was eating wheat and other grains, but since I've been off all grains, except the occasional rice and corn, I've gotten much better. I still don't maintain eye-contact as much as most people around me, but now I'm more aware of it so instead of having poor eye contact it varies depending on the situation. If I'm discussing philosophy or complicated theories then I make much less eye contact because I need to concentrate on what the person is saying, but if we're just making small talk then I maintain eye contact much better.

I've always thought of it as Introverted vs. Extroverted.
I had to train myself to make eye contact as I always considered it impolite (intrusive)!
I found out that at least here in the US it is considered impolite to not make eye contact so I've adapted.

Sedulous,
Left handed people tend to look up and to the right when recalling because their dominant hemisphere is the right one, while right handed people tend to look up and to the left. This isn't always the case, but it usually is. Recent research has shown that Rapid Eye Movement while sleeping resets a person's emotional compass, so there is more than eye movement than... meets the eye. You see what I did there? Har har.

I didn't mean to sound rude with this comment, I'm just obsessed with knowledge and I don't have good interpersonal skills to tell you the truth. There's no doubt that I'm a blood(arche)type O to the fullest, I recently did some genealogy work and I learned that hunters run in my family. Alvin C. York was my father's cousin and he was said to be the "last longhunter," it's no surprise then that he was also the ultimate soldier.

I think I have bad eye cotact - I don't know people's eye colors like it seems most everyone else does!  I feel confident, but don't act confident; I don't take rejection well; & I'm more extroverted, but can withdraw with rejection or if interacting with a quiet person.  I guess I'm a blend of lots of things......

Hey All

I think I'm quite good on the eye contact stakes - being Australian it's considered rude not to be - but it really depends on what's happening around me and who I'm with.

To throw something else into the mix, I'm an NLP practitioner and one thing we look at is 'eye accessing cues'.  

Broadly these are:  If you're inside your own head and looking out through your own eyes - upper right quadrant is visual (remembered), middle right is auditory (remembered), bottom right is kinesthetic (emotions/feelings) - upper left quadrant is visual (construct), middle left is auditory construct and bottom left is auditory/digital (logic/science/numbers etc).  This can be reversed in some people   .  

If you watch some kids at a spelling bee, they'll upper or middle right with their eyes (to see/hear the word as they remember it - depending if they're more visual or auditory, then go lower right to get a 'feeling' - is this right or wrong - before they answer.  It's a shame when teachers say 'what are you looking down there for, you won't find the answer on the floor'   .

Anywho, food for thought.

I had to train myself to make eye contact... but now that I'm good at it, it feels like a very "right" thing to do. I think for me this has far more to do with upbringing and self-image than food.

I just have one question...Why is this poll designed to be specific to these two blood types?

Not taking this personally...just curious.
