Why is it that when you make eye contact with certain people they leave you feeling really scared?

I should state that I posted my comment because I've never really been left feeling scared of certain people after looking at them. It usually seems that it is the other way around, but not necessarily in bad terms.

Like ShaneVoid, I do attract more than my fair share of strangers who feel comfortable just coming up and talking with me. I can almost always make babies smile and laugh just by looking at them. Many mothers of newborns are always shocked at how babies take to me. My wife used to work in a daycare and even the most difficult children would come right up to me. (Maybe its because I'm a big kid myself).

When I walk into a crowd, I do consciously let my eyes do the talking. Often times, I do feel like I am projecting a positive feeling. It could be said that I may come accross as projecting myself as someone of importance.

Or, I can project a vibe of "leave me alone" when I don't want to be bothered.

I've often wondered if people become who they are because of what they do or, to an extent, of how they are perceived. If I am perceived as important, am I or do I become important? If I am perceived as evil or scary, am I or do I become that way?

OP, there is always the chance that you are really picking up something off him and he could be as evil as you think he is. I'm not trying to be scary about it but I really think this is true. If you have to go to his house by yourself you should tell a few people where you are going right before hand so they will know if something is happening. Also maybe bring some sort of weapon, just don't be too paranoid and end up using it for no reason, now that would be BAD.

It's not paranormal, it's a physcological thing.

If you need to make eye contact with someone your uncomfortable with, stare at their nose.

Works every time.

It always amazes me when I read rhetoric ignorance still being spread like a disease. The "eye is a window to the soul" is such rhetoric and only sounds good in poetry. It makes no logical or scientific sense in a world that NEEDS logical, scientific sense to progress.

Good fun? *sigh* No thanks

I didn't post to take over the thread just adding my experience to the mix in hopes that the OP get's whatever he can out of all of the posts he's gotten so far.

In a forum That is in text...without you being able to see me hear me etc I could describe and explain till the proverbial cows came home.

There are people who are very in tune to others and I am one of them
On the very rare occasion I come across a person who has this effect on me...most are just normal everyday schmo's just like me (though less in tune).

I am really enjoying the responses to this thread but I'd love to hear how the OP's delivery went and weather he felt the same?

Well im overwhelmed with all the replies and advice and my head is spinning with all the different theories and actions i should take.Thanks to all.I wanted to add at this point that i consider myself reasonably well balanced and a mostly confident person(i work as a salesman)and i deal with hundreds of people every week and for the most part i like to think im quite perceptive and a good character judge,and yes certain people do give off certain feelings of whethe there good,bad crazy etc and i can appreciate the fact that starin at some people can make u feel uneasy,happy,sad and so on but this is totally different to what im experiencing,as i say its only happened a few times in my life but these people who made feel like this is nothing to do with them havin mental strength or tryin to show authority or any normal emotion,as i said i can usually pick up on body language and so forth and gage other peoples feelings and thoughts towards me,no this is something totally different,it is very much like i can sense there evil,and as a physical reaction in the fact that it wipes out my energy.I do think that i am sensing something pure evil or other worldly and a lot of the posts from other folks who have experienced it are just right,especially the one about the 'creeper'.This really seems to relate to the guy im goin to deliver to.I will be on my guard,thanks,and i would also love to hear more about protecting myself spiritually or mentally before i go.I havent got a specific date yet but if ppl are interested il keep u posted on the outcome.Thanks again everyone and any further insight,comments or advice would be hugely appreciated.

What i now want to no is if anyone can explain this or if anyone else as had a similar experience as i have to deliver to this guy in a couple of weeks and am dreading it,being inside his home.I dont no if im being paranoid but im sure once he saw the revulsion on my face a sly smirk appeared and he seemed to actually be enjoyin my discomfort.

Op honestly I think you are overreacting. Once you became frightened you could have easily started projecting, the guy may have smiled because he sensed you were uncomfortable, he may have meant to put you at ease and appear friendly and instead you saw it as some sort of evil smirk reveling in your fear. It may not be “all about you”, he could have felt uneasy at the interaction. For all you know he could be thinking“ sheesh I hope that weird guy at the store doesn’t make the delivery”.

You are going to HIS home, you know where HE lives, he knows that you have a record of that. You have a lot more power in this situation than he does. You could choose to bring someone along with you if you like. What do you realistically think this guy is going to do to you? Do you think he is going to steal your soul and put it in a jar on his mantle?

If I were you I would talk to the guy when I made the delivery (and if I was that freaked out I would take someone with me). There are a million things to ask or discuss when in his home, I would be sociable.

Hi sonya,thanks for the advice.I will probably end up taking someone with me,ive already thought of that.Youve made me feel real guilty now about the guy smiling to reassure me etc and i am perhaps being a little paranoid but it honestly doesnt feel like that.It feels like there is definetly something different about him and iv also noticed in some of the replies ive got that a couple of other ppl have thought they could see someone take pleasure in seeing them discomforted.I will try and engage him in conversation and will be as professional as possible and i will go in with an open mind and tell myself nothin will happen,il also read up on mentally preparing myself to be on the safe side but at the back of my mind i think it will just be the same and il have that horrible scared feeling no matter what,even if someones with me. Also i dont expect anything bad to happen as such,its just that feeling i dont like and the drain it puts on me.U never no tho!
