The Eyes—Five Regions of the Body and What They Can Tell You
The eyes are arguably the most significant region on our list, if predominantly for our innate ability to read them.
Based on an understanding of the regions of the brain, glances left and right and their relationship to fabrication and conversation are telling.
Eye contact, rapid eye movement, and dilation each stand to tell their own stories and are each intrinsically connected to the observed’s thread of emotions and responses.
Looking left is generally indicative of recall, while look right is associated with creating. Looking right and down signals the accessing of feelings and looking left and down indicates self–talk.
Upward glances are related to visual images, remembered on the left and created on the right, and sideways glances are related to auditory memory in the left and fabrication on the right.
An eye shrug (a short upward roll of the eyes) denotes irritation and can be easily connected to the idea of ‘looking to the heavens.’ A similar movement in the eyebrows is called the eyebrow flash and is indicative of acknowledgement if short and surprise or fear if elongated. Pupil dilation is related to attraction or desire and the widening of the eyes denotes interest and greeting.
