    Do you stare at people when you're in public? What type of person does this? Is it some kind of sensory/mental problem that causes people to stare for long periods of time?

    I try not to but, must say, I have. I'm not quite sure why I let my manners slide except something grabbed my attention so strongly... usually its been someone I wanted to paint and have, in fact, taken a good enough mental image to do so later. When I've come out of trance, I have, in fact, approached the person and told them what was going on and they've been flattered I think. Those times, I've wished I had a camera with me and could ask the person for a photo.

    As for others doing it, I've been stared at all my life and thought I knew why. I've been approached by strangers asking if I'm this or that person as I resembled a couple of celebrities of the day. I got a taste of what celebrities go through. But, now, I don't think I do anymore and they're still staring. I think I just have one of those faces that, as a whole, is me but is made up of individual parts that look like someone else because I still get so many people thinking they know me from somewhere.

    I do think people who sit in the park... more like your example, are just entertaining themselves with people watching and are so into it they're probably oblivious. I do tend to be a people watcher but short of staring mostly. I am more of an animal watcher. I can watch them for hours... of course they don't mind.

    Heh. This is probably why I'm oblivious to that kind of thing: the only thing worth staring at on me, is on the side of my body where I don't have eyes.

    I don't think I stare at people. If I make eye contact, I might have to talk to them. I have, in the past, been accused of staring when I was spaced out and didn't even see what I was looking at. Now I try to be careful not to do that.

The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I beg to differ. I've seen your recent pics in your blog and think you're quite fetching. You have the most beautiful hair color!

    I suspect I stare sometimes. I'm not really sure where the boundary is between looking at people and staring (beyond the obvious exaggeration, a la George).

    I can't help looking at people, they're by far the most interesting thing to see on my commute....It also feels weird to me to rigidly force your eyes away from looking at anything. I've also zoned out while accidentally looking at someone before. I hope I haven't bothered people .

    Do You Stare?

    No, not usually. I don't usually even notice other people (if I don't pay special attention to them) because I'm most of the time in my own thoughts when out shopping.

    The pretties make me do it! I look, but I try not to stare; it's just... they're so pretty

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    Does it count if you aren't staring at their face?





    but really...i don't stare...

    Do You Stare?
    accidently, yes. I stare alot at things and people. I just zone out and don't even realise i'm doing it...

    i think staring is usually because one is in thought, it takes over ones mind and well.... your eyes have to go somewhere, don't they? Though i am not staring per se', and just heavily in thought, it would look like i was staring to whoever looks at me at these zoning out times... and sometimes i am not even thinking... it's like a "blackout"
