First thing I would say is this; the Jewish people have a certain way of looking at you. Now, it could be personal bias, but I know others who have noticed it too. The way is this; when I have dealings with Jews, either in public or in passing, they never make direct eye contact. Their eyes, lacking a certain symmetry, always seem to look through me, or directly to my side.
You see this kind of behaviour frequently in children conditioned for social dysfunction disorders. They are taught to look at someone’s ear, their nose, or just past them. It mimics eye contact, while saving you the ‘indignity’ of intimate conversation. For a man trained to condition these kinds of behaviour, or regulate victims of this conditioning, the behaviour does not escape me.
This observation has remained true from childhood up until today. When I have had the opportunity, talking to Jews is like observing the half-life of a conversation. They will look toward me, and their eyes will not reflect the conversation. Their presence is not in the moment I share with them. It is as if they exist on a different wavelength. There almost seems to be a certain dullness about their stare; it is not as sharp. Perhaps due to the indirectness. Or perhaps their mind is rapt with something altogether different.
This rule applies to the younger ones. I wonder, sometimes, if it is a confidence issue. I notice, that as Jews get older, their confidence seems to grow, at least in some cases (typically women). In my dealings with Jewish mothers, typically those well past the child-rearing age and in their winter, they do not break eye contact. I have also noted that many Jewish mothers have no issue exerting dominance. It seems to be what they do. Jewish men often seem to remain broken well into adulthood.
It could also affect the apparent meekness of the young ones. If it is true, as anecdotal wisdom goes, that young Jews live in the umbrage and control of the older, domineering ones – it would only result in a peevish, neurotic, sly and conniving adult. If one is bred to be afraid of directness, then they should certainly develop the instincts of a lurker.
One last thing I have noted. Direct eye contact is not always welcome. As with any divergent faction, it is important for us to maintain proper eye contact when addressing them. Sheep and other prey animals keep their eyes on the wide sides of their head. If we are to avoid being seen as prey, we must begin to assert confidence. Look straight, look ahead, eyes to the front, face your conversants.
After making even the smallest of changes – asserting yourself in conversation, eye contact, unwavering voice – it does not take long for us to realise that we have far more influence than we think. A confident man or woman, especially one unflappable in their conviction, makes for an important front page. We present the image that suggests we will not be moved, and as a result, are less susceptible to attempted direct manipulation. I have observed this in my own life, since taking control of my own social image, and you will find the same will work for you.
