    It's just a myth (the direction of your eyes indicating if you're lying or not). There are too, too many factors involved, so it's not reliable AT ALL. Whatever the lying eye movement is, I do it all the time, according to a psych research asst, and I definitely am not that much of a liar! It's eye movement, it just happens, and there is no way to reliably correlate eye movement with lying. Many people divert there eyes simply to limit or avoid eye contact, although they are not lying at all! I actually hate looking at people eye to eye, because it seems to cause guys to ask me out. Maybe that sounds crazy. But it's easier to just not look at people very much. Trying to gauge a person's validity from their eye movement is a big mistake.

    Eye movement is much more a reflection of habit than indicator of honesty.

    I've never placed a lot of emphasis on it as it is not exact, nor did I say it was very scientific. There are too many "ifs" to make it true 100% of the time. But it is interesting to read about and when Six Degrees mentioned a "theory about humans naturally moving their heads towards a direction where certain things are stored in the brain", I thought of that.

    When I read this, I was thinking "too orange sherbert" instead of vanilla...
