Quotes from the book What Every Body is Saying by Joe Navarro, 231 pages, Harper-Collins Publishers, 2008:

p. 182
"Conversely, when we gaze away during a conversation, we tend to do so to engage a thought more clearly without the distraction of looking at the person with whom we are talking. This behavior is often mistaken as rudeness or as personal rejection, which it is not. Nor is it a sign of deception or disinterest; in fact, it is actually a comfort display." (Aldert Vrij, Detecting lies and deceit: The psychology of lying and the implications for professional practice. Chichester, UK: John Wiley and Sons, Ltd. 2003. pages 88-89.)

p. 216
"Keep in mind that predators and habitual liars actually engage in greater eye contact than most individuals, and will lock eyes with you. Research clearly shows that Machiavellian people (for example, psychopaths, con men, and habitual liars) will actually increase eye contact during deception." (Paul Ekman, Telling Lies: Clues to deceit in the marketplace, politics, and marriage. New York: W. W. Norton and Co. 1991. pages 141-142.)
