The Crazy Eyes Have It
While he doesn't mention it here in his article on eyes, I am curious about how some people seem to exhibit "crazy eyes"--that is, that wide-eyed look that accompanies a fantastic story, as if the speaker is trying to use their eyes to physically force you to believe their statement. Some have posited that this look imitates the wide-eyed look of a child in hopes of fostering a sense of innocence and sincerity.
I'm still looking for semi-reputable sources of research on this. I'd certainly like to read more about "crazy eyes", as I have often witnessed it in paranormal witness testimony, including a woman who told me once of some hybrid bigfoot babies that lived in a cage at some woman's Oklahoma house. As I find more, I'll certainly share that data with you. Til then: beware the googley eyes!!
