    What are some behaviors that one expresses when guilty or approached about something they are embarrassed about.  I think for me I'll try to avoid the person....lol

      Exaggeration, close-gared gestures (keep arms close to the body), avoiding eye contact.

      I actually wrote a hub about this:

    Yup.

    I agree, the manarisms, the lil eccentricities in someones behaviors.

    But there are alot of other things also, exaggeration, deflection, denial, minipulation of the conversations to change the subjects, and the infamous freudian slip among many others.

    Probrably more than we could list...

    But all are relative to that individual also.

    I have seen people that just look like they're lying, and others you would trust with your life and might not live to regret it.

    So not all, are aplicable to all.

    In my personal experiences, I've seen people try to hide their guilt preemptively. When someone is being overbearing towards you trying to figure out what you're hiding when there's nothing going on, they might be trying to hide something themselves.

    You know that old saying, "The woman doth protest too much"? It applies to men also.
    I've also heard an involuntary physical reaction is looking up and to the right...
