We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Shooters do care. I'm left-eye dominant but a right-handed shooter.Not that big a deal using shotguns, but it can be annoying when I'm shooting a non-scoped rifle or target shooting with pistols. Never annoying enough to try to shoot left-handed, though, or stay right-handed and train myself to shoot accurately using the left eye, as some folks do.
Well, I was speaking for myself - most of my shotgunnery has involved knocking down quail, dove & ducks & the left eye doesn't bother me much there. If I had to shoot with the consistency of a competitive trap shooter, I might feel differently!!
It's funny you mention both eyes open - when I was a kid I used to close the left eye when aiming; at some point I stopped doing that. Don't remember anybody instructing me to do it. These days in a hunt, especially quail hunting, I'm not even really conscious of aiming at all, and I'm told I'm a good shot.
The "eye movement" theory may apply to amateurs, who usually give their behavior away in other, more creative ways, but the truly professional liars will look you straight in the eye and lie like a rug. Good grief.
This eye-tracking for lie detection has been studied extensively by Ekman and colleagues: Doesn't work. To put it simply. See ekman's Emotions revealed, in which he reviews the evidence. Also, polygraphy is easily defeated/deceived by those who know, and also give false positives by anxious innocent people.
Really good liars --say, the Bill Clinton or Obama types --are good actors, and they simply play someone who is telling the truth.
I'd bet that such a talent has to be learned young --and in a dangerous environment --of abusive adults (Clinton and Obama both qualify). And then these core-corrupted manipulator/savants grow up hungry for power. Wonder what the connection is --desire for revenge against the world? Hell that fits like a glove.
