Look down at birdie, then look at oppenent, then either keep looking at them, or look at a spot on court to try and bluff them.

a friend of mine (in doubles) looks at the opponent that he's not serving to. this can be very confusing as you are not sure if he's even ready to serve

For doubles i'll look at my opponent standing area n style like how he's getting ready to retrive my shots, just few days ago
i manage to trick my opponent i look at him n the area where
i wanted to serve than last min i change the direction of serving

first, take a look at exactly how exhausted the face of the opponent
second, take a look at the racket position he is holding, whether opponent is preparing for a backhand or forehand high or low position racket
third, take a look at an empty space, make opponent think u will hit to that side
fourth, hit the opposite site of the empty space, if right equals to left,
fifth, pretty much the opponent will get clumsy to return the serve

I think it's most recommended to have a consistency in your service form. in doubles, it's best to look at one spot always. for my preference would be to look at the person's waist and upper body. You can tell whether or he is leaning forward to attack on contact or leaning back ready for anything. Most often when I see a player slowly leaning forward as I bring my racket closer to the shuttle I would then change my service into a flick serve and that way you'll have a chance to catch them off guard. But consistency is the key so that it's harder for your opposition to read the potiental service.

the best service is when you hit the shuttle it musn't be too high!!
it must be like just pass the net!!
in order to train the you prob need another person holding his racquet up alittle
and you hitting under there!!
aim properly !!
then if you master that prob you can hit more towards the side!!
actually see where your opponent stands
is it more to the right or left!!
just find an opening!!
or you can always look at 1 place like on your opponent right hand
then you hit a fast ball on your opponent backhand!!
well i do that!! you can try if you want!!
good luck ^^

I look at the ceiling...
No I don't. I actually look at the opponent's feet, so I can get a feel of how he's gonna react when I serve it.

I vote other. First I look at the birdie, and then the opponent and serve.

I stare at my opponent until s/he crumples to the floor under the raw power of my gaze.
Then I serve.

hmm. Well for me i'll look at the shuttlecock first, then look at the space where i'm going to serve at. However, i might occasionally have my eyes fixed on the space at the front but serve to the baseline with a flick of the wrist while using the backhand serve. Might trick the opponent sometimes

Seeing that the racket becomes an extension of the body, it forms part of the body's motor system of coordination.
I first look at the shuttle, then the net (short serve) and hit the shuttle without looking at it. Though I might also flick as deception.
High serve, I don't look at the shuttle.

I look at my partner, and if I'm playing single, I look at the ceiling.
