    For every psychopath one finds based on the 'flatness' or 'deadness' of their eyes, you'll get at least ten false positives, and miss an equal amount of other psychopaths.

    Exactly, lowtech.

    I asked Noah to chime in on this because he's got super good instincts. He refuses to post anymore, sadly, but I will report what he said. Eyes can be a clue, but not a reliable one- some people "pass" better than others, and "some regular people just have crazy eyes." It can be a very primitive tool if primitive tools are needed (such as in personal protection/safety), but not one he'd ever rely on to judge a person's character accurately.

    His criteria wasn't so much the eyes in isolation, though- more that the eyes don't match the rest of the face in expression, which points to deception. Deception is not necessarily sociopathy- a non-sociopath can have something to hide, too.

    i'm just curious, what does it mean if you have dead eyes but aren't a sociopath. does that mean the person has sociopathic tendencies?

    I think it means nothing at all. "Dead eyes" isn't like a scientific term or anything. It's very subjective.

    Of note, every person I've ever met who was in the marines had allegedly crazy eyes. I think they train those crazy eyes into you.
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    Are you referring to the thousand-yard stare? Were they combat veterans? I certainly had that in basic training.

    Recently, an employer guessed that I had been in the Marines because of the way I walked and something about my eyes; though I'm not sure what he was referring to was a result of being in the Marines. Sometimes, I survey my environment instinctively. It's sort of an intuitive "big picture" thing; though I focus more on people than objects in my environment.

    That's interesting that you bring up the "thousand yard stare," Moniker- the link you posted says it's a feature of PTSD, which I imagine young Beth had a case of to rival that of any combat vet.

    Especially being a young child. She undoubtedly did.

    ... well, usually... unless you're actually deceased.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
