Open Question: watery people: how much do you "retreat" into your world?

I do it a lot apparently, I had no clue :/ my friend said at first she thought I was mean because I looked so un-approachable and spaced out. When I get deep into thought I scare people. My eyes get very wide and I stare intensely, it really bothers people lol. I have seen another pisces do this but its for very short periods of time and her eyes don't get wide like mine. What about you guys? I know cancer and scorpio do this differently, please elaborate in which ways you do this. -pisces sun + mars -cancer rising
