What do your eyes say about you?

What do your eyes say about you? A lot! Aside from the functionality of our eyes, they can also provide many clues about the way we are thinking.
It is said that the eyes are the windows to the soul, but is it true? Could the eyes really reveal our true feelings about others? When we are attracted to another person there are some things that can be controlled - but pupil dilation is not one of them.
When in a romantic setting, the mood can definitely be set for love. A reduction of light causes the pupils to dilate. That is why when people think of romantic restaurants, they usually think of ones with soft light and candles.
Another thing that causes pupil dilation is physical or psychological pleasure. When someone finds another person or thing attractive, the pupils dilate. In turn, that dilation is often found attractive by others. This is sometimes referred to as 'bedroom eyes'. Conversely, if totally turned off by a person, the pupils may slightly contract. One may subconsciously use these pupil measurements to judge whether they like someone else or not.
While it is likely that pupil dilation is a sign of sexual interest, it is not true 100% of the time. Dilated pupils can also happen when women look at photographs of babies or when a hungry person sees an appetising dinner, so the dilation doesn’t always mean sexual attraction!
The study of pupil size as an indicator of emotion is known as pupillometrics. It was Eckhard Hess, a University of Chicago biopsychologist, who first used this term back in 1975.
If you have ever watched someone tell a lie or struggle to come up with an answer, they do certain things with their eyes. An individual telling a lie will usually struggle and will manifest this gap in proceedings by looking in another direction. It is also instinctive that they try and avoid the gaze of the person they are lying to in case their gaze gives too much information.
If an individual looks to the left (their left, your right) this means they are usually telling the truth and are struggling to put the words together. And if they are looking to the right (their right, your left) some psychologists and counsellors believe this means they are lying and are trying to bide time to think of a suitable lie to continue with.
Eye contact is an important part of any relationship, personal or professional, and many people place great emphasis on how a person either looks at them or away from them during conversations when important information is required or questions are being asked.
It is, of course, not always the case that an individual exhibiting any of these signals is telling lies - they may simply be nervous. So make that eye contact – but proceed with caution! - Fly at a Smile-Price
