Your eyes are the windows to your soul. They reveal deep-seated truths about you which your words may fail to do. Also, there’s a lot that can be deduced from just one eye contact. Your emotions could well up at the oddest periods; either anger, pain or joy. But certain people, who have the skill to read minds through one eye contact with you, can tell how you feel. You could say they are emotionally intelligent. Fortunately, you can also join the high EI team by learning all the secrets behind different eye contacts.
Nine Ways To Read Minds Through Eye Contact
You can tell a lot about a person just by gazing into their eyes. Sometimes, there is a darker truth behind a direct eye contact. Other times, it could just be something as simple as love. A lot of love crooners have also developed the catchphrase, ‘look into my eyes and tell me what you see.’ It’s not 100% accurate but it is science, and who can argue with that?
1. Shifting gaze from side to side
This indicates that a conspiracy could be happening. One does this when checking if anyone else is listening. It could also indicate shiftiness and lying as the person tries to look for an escape route. They do this in case they are caught.
When you gaze at someone or an object directly, it shows interest. Others are usually inclined to follow your gaze to find out the source of interest.
3. Locking gaze
This action is more common in romantic films. When you gaze at someone, it could mean love. However, when that gaze slides down to the body or locks on a person’s body part, it could be lust. Try to be careful where you lock your gaze at.
4. Looking up
This could mean a number of things, from boredom to thinking. It could be an indicator of a visual thinker. It is usually done when thinking. Looking up and then left implies you’re trying to recall a memory. Looking up and then right could indicate an imaginative construction of a picture.
5. Eyes looking up, but with the head down
Does this sound familiar. Children are known to do the ‘puppy dog’ eyes to get their way. It could also mean anger when combined with a frown. However, there are other implications. It is a coy suggestive gesture of submission (with head down) and attraction (with eyes up).
6. Looking down
In some cultures, looking down is a sign of respect. It is also a sign of guilt or submission.
7. Eyes looking down, and then sideways
Eyes down and left implies you’re talking to yourself. On the other hand, looking down and right indicates you’re attending to internal emotions.
8. Looking up and down
This is usually considered rude as it’s an obvious sign of disrespect. It implies that you’re sizing that person up and basically saying, “I’m better than you.”
9. Looking sideways
When you shift your gaze sideways, you’re either distracted or irritated. For the former, you seek the source of distraction. But, for the latter, you are simply irritated by something.
