I got a question that is gonna reveal my ignorance, but here goes: Why are people content-noting eye contact, when did that become a thing and what ought I to be aware of

@mithriltabby hm, I've never noticed _discomfort_ when making eye contact, but I have noticed that I don't really initiate it or seek it out particularly. Combined with a few other things, makes me wonder if I have some undiagnosed minor neurodivergence.


@palecur They call it a spectrum for a good reason. I have enough of the hyperfocus traits to make me good at intense debugging sessions, for instance.
