Scientists believe that the sensation of being watched is actually hard-wired in to our brains.

The feeling that others are watching us is an evolutionary mechanism designed to keep us alert and ready for interaction before it really happens, experts said.

I get the feeling I am being watched so I will look around and sure enough there's that squirrel just waiting for me to turn my back so he can steal my fruit.

Four eyes are usually trained on my every move, reading my most subtle body movements, knowing what I'm thinking/feeling...even quietly watching as I sleep.

No, I'm not paranoid...I just have dogs.

I suppose probably the best way to avoid being watched is to not be worth watching.

Aw...that's kind of sad actually. :cry:

Anyone who feels this way, I'll be glad to watch you for a bit. :)

Well thanks but you took it wrong; remember I live in a slightly different country.

Oh, that kind of being watched. Yeah, in that case it's a good thing to be "not worth watching".

People don't get watched with no reason. For example if you are pretty or sexy... What's the point to makeup and have a nice clothes if you don't get to be watched anyway.

A few months ago...or maybe last year sometime, there was an article about how the sensation of being started at was real and was caused by electrical impulses from the eyes or something like  that. So, now that's all fake?  

I don't believe we are hardwired to feel someone staring.

How many times have we all felt that sensation only to turn around to see someone is actually staring?

Also, i've seen people do some really gross things because they don't realize people are looking so, what happened to these people?

my first response was going to be  Yes every time I sign on here  I wonder who is watching  which one is the MIB and who is the alfa centarian  but someone already said a something to that effect...

as a hunter / fisherman/ hiker I have felt that sensation many times once it was a doe with a fawn,  once a bear, Once a couger ( the cat kind...)   several times it was squirrels  once it was a game warden ( I was totally legal) and many times I never figured out what it was.   I do not know if it is a hardwired left over from Neolithic humans or some future sense that we are  reacquiring ( I said it that way deliberately) but I have felt watched more than once and been right more than once. the one that spooks me the most is waking up @ 2 am or 3 am knowing your being watched and being unable to find anyone or anything.

How many times have people not had that feeling and there is someone staring at them?
It's just a feeling. There might be something to it but I wouldn't make too much of it. There will never be a definitive answer to it.
