Are You Being Ignored?

Researchers have discovered that people who think they are being watched are more honest?even if the eyes watching them don't belong to a real person. Now scientists say that the fact that someone is NOT watching you DOES NOT mean that they aren't hanging onto your every word.

Jeanna Bryner writes in LiveScience.com that teachers have discovered that students who seem to be ignoring them may actually be processing the complex information they're listening to and trying to come up with an answer. Researchers who study classrooms noticed that when a student moves his gaze away from the teacher's face, he (or she) is much more likely to come up with the correct answer to a question that the teacher will ask later, so teachers should be careful not to find these averted gazes distracting.
