Avoiding Eye Contact

by Andrea
(Central Ct)

In a business conversation, when the other party won't make eye contact when directly spoken to and always moves around to the side of you, what is their body language saying?

Our Answer

Avoiding eye contact can be a sign of insecurity or disinterest. If that person is also shifting to your side, then the feet are probably pointing away from you. That's a signal that he or she would rather leave than talk to you.

Because this behavior is showing when that person is spoken to directly, I think the body language is showing that this person is insecure or nervous around (groups of) people.

Thanks for asking, Andrea!

Obviously, it is disinterest. And if he is going to make a deal with you then he is hiding something or is not sure of what he is doing. He can also be lying to you if he does not have an eye contact with you. visit us

The explanation of the body language is done greatly by the author. Also avoiding eye contact can happen if the person is shy or timid and is not confident. This website about body language is awesome and I am interested in it. kitchen exhaust cleaning
