It is undeniable that our eyes are a very special part of our bodies, and unique to every individual. It has been said that our eyes are “windows to the soul,” in that they can provide others with information about how we are feeling. However, you may not realize exactly how much they’re giving away. Here are 7 great facts that prove eyes are the windows to the soul.
They are political – You can tell a person’s political orientation by looking at their eyes! People that are more left-leaning, tend to follow ‘eye cues’ more readily than right-leaning people. This means you’ll know someone is liberal if they follow your gaze when you look away from them.
They can tell the truth… or lie – If someone seems untrustworthy, look into their eyes. If they look up into the left, then it is likely they are fibbing. If they look the other way, they are probably recalling information.
Their color can dictate alcohol tolerance – A study recently conducted at Georgia University discovered that light eyed people (blue, green, hazel, or gray eye color) could handle their alcohol better than those with dark eyes.
The blink reflex is controlled by a powerful muscle – Most adults blink an average of every 5 seconds. This equates to an astonishing 6.5 million times a year. The muscle that controls this movement is faster than any other muscle in the human body!
Their eyes can tell you if they are flirting – This can manifest in a few subtle ways: they could unconsciously mimic your blinking pattern, gaze at your mouth, or their pupils will dilate.
They are easy to take care of – 80% of conditions that affects people’s eyes in the world are avoidable or curable. You’ve got only one pair, so look after them, it’s easy!
