What does sight say?

by Psychology0 comments









We have eyes that allow us to see the world around us in a broad sense. They allow us to express our emotions directly, where words have little meaning. We can support this with an example:




You are watching a film, a film about other people’s suffering. It touches you to such an extent that tears well up in your eyes and begin to fall down your cheeks. You’re sitting with another person who sees your face and starts to understand what you are experiencing at that moment.


Tears can reflect different emotions, from nervousness, sadness to joy. All this can be worked out by looking at the context of the situation and the facial expressions involved in the whole process. This is not an article that focuses attention on tears, but on sight, so the other emotions associated with it, which are more difficult to identify, should be described. What else can the eyes express? Have you noticed differences in vision? Everyone looks in a completely different way. In one eye you can see compassion, in the other you can see excitement, and in the other you can see jealousy.


Eyes squinting, pulling their gaze from top to bottom and from bottom to top. It is a strong sight, not seeing anything around. And with lips slightly bent up or biting on the lower lip. Such signals may indicate desire or excitement. These emotions may usually be directed towards people and objects.




Another situation:

Looking into one place without taking your eyes off it. Momentarily changing the shape of the eye by narrowing and opening it, alternately. This can be identified with suspension, which indicates thinking about a specific topic. Thus, these signals are evidence of this; of thinking.




Wide open eyes, practically as wide as possible. This process is momentary and not changeable in this short period of time. Additionally, open mouth, which forms the letter “O” in its shape. Here we talk about surprise or a moment of surprise and disbelief.






Of course, there are more examples of this because every kind of gaze means something different. I focused on these three examples because they strongly reflect certain emotions. Not every gaze will be easy to decipher, or even possible. There are types of gazes that you will notice and you won’t understand the person’s assumptions and emotions, but maybe you will recognize lies. Lies that are hard to hide because you unconsciously look in different directions, and they signal whether they are worth believing.






Would you like to know more about the emotions expressed in your eyesight and see them more in others? As in every aspect, you should start with yourself. And what does that mean exactly? When you feel a certain emotion, think about your facial expressions and your eye expressions. Focus on this and think about it. You can also stand in the mirror and try to imagine objects, people or situations that make you angry, annoyed, jealous or sad. During this, watch your face and think about how your eyes express these emotions. If you manage to analyze yourself, you can begin to pay attention to others and try to read their hidden impulses in your face.





The biggest blindness is the one who doesn’t want to look.

–  José Saramago
