Question about Taiwan

I have a quick and perhaps unusual question about etiquette for myself in Taiwan. I'm going to be teaching English either in China or Taiwan, most likely Taiwan. I feel like I'm quite good at interacting with people, however, I have a very mild version of Asperger's syndrome. For people with Asperger's, a common symptom is to struggle with looking people in the eye. I don't think I greatly struggle with this, but a few American peers have told me that I seem to look away from their eyes sometimes.

Would this easily offend anyone in Taiwan, especially since I'm an American so they might expect me to assertively look them in the eye? In America, it's also considered rude usually not to look people in the eye when you're interacting with them. I appreciate the answers that are to come! Thank you!
