I thought that UMan's avoidance of people's eyes reminded me a lot about Jacques Lacan's theory about the "Gaze". Lacan basically says that the feeling of people staring at you, makes you self-conscious enough to stop or change what you're doing. UMan seems to permanently have a "Gaze" on him. He is constantly paranoid that others are judging him. Sounds like the symptoms of the "Gaze" to me.
