    I was wondering if manner of watching people is type specific... if everyone watches people differently or what?

    this is watching people who you are NOT talking to, right?

    i don't really enjoy watching other people. i will watch people for a very very short time, seconds, but usually it just doesn't interest me...
    i like to watch the people i am talking to, definitely!
    if i am alone i like to watch lots of different things and not let my glance settle on any one thing for too long.

    I watch them when I'm talking to them... I also watch them plenty without talking to them... just relaxing back and watching what they're doing, how they're doing it and such... things that move tend to catch my attention

    Try watching with peripheral vision, it's less threatening.

    It's one of the things I use to judge people in regard to personality You have those that judge others, those that just watch to watch, those that try to figure out so they can mimick when they watch. Those who feel when they watch others.

    Me. I watch you when you watch me. If you'll tell me a story, I'll be content and then I won't watch quite so intently.

    Who watches the watchers?
    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    I like to watch old people. I want to draw their portraits!

    Unfortunately, I wear eyeglasses so peripheral vision isn't a plan. I would just get eyestrain.
    sigh.
