Facial Recognition

I don't know if its absence guarantees a polite conversation, but I am pretty sure that if I am speaking to someone whose face is "wrything thy visage into divers formes" it will be pretty darn distracting.

Also among the advice from a 1595 book on manners: Do not "bee picking or rubbing thy neck, as if thou wert lowsie." Of course, appearing "lowsie" might be a good way to end a conversation you don't want to have. Choosing some particularly offensive "divers formes" might be another.
