Look Me In the Eyes Governor

A few days ago I was in a meeting with Governor Henry. He was civil and polite as usual, but the thing that bugs me is he won't look you in the eyes. He seems uncomfortable with any extended eye contact. This is probably different with people he knows well but in our culture (American) it is not a trait that engenders trust. Averting ones eyes tends to signal that one is hiding something, not sure of himself, or intimidated. I really like humble people - can't stand aggressive a**holes - but humble does not equal meek or elusive.
