You can have my eyes or my brain, but not both...

They say you should look people in the eyes when you're talking to them. But I'm unable to think while looking another person in the eyes. This leaves me in a position where either 1) I have to look away while I'm thinking/talking, occasionally glancing at the person - which makes me appear shifty; or 2) I look the person in the eyes and stupid or at least ineloquent things come out of my mouth. Can I solve this? Which is the lesser evil? [more inside]

Oh, so you're a [insert profession here]! How [insert whacky generalization and misguided curiosity here]?
