1.
In a group meeting, the attendee with whom the meeting leader establishes and maintains eye contact. The speaker presents all information directly to that attendee. Causes include:

- attendee is the only person in the room offering eye contact to presenter
- performance anxiety
- a desire for a personal connection with an otherwise disinterested room.

The meeting muse at first will experience feelings of grandeur, as if he/she is the most important person in the room. This quickly subsides to a feeling of awkward imprisonment.
Travis: "GAWD I hate going to Slate's meetings."

Troy: "Dude - were you the meeting muse again?"

Travis: "Yes, dammit. I couldn't check email, do Facebook, even look down at my phone. I'm so behind now."

At a rock show, the audience member with whom the lead singer establishes and maintains eye contact. The singer sings all of his/her songs to that one audience member. Causes for this behavior include:

- attraction

The show muse may experience swoony feelings of love, or an awkward responsibility that prevents him or her from leaving to get a drink or to pee.
Sandy: "How was the show last night?"

Kate: "It was fine, but I had to pee so bad for the entire show."

Sandy: "Why the hell didn't you just go to the bathroom?"

Kate: "I was the show muse. Couldn't leave. The singer looked terrified."
