Windows of The Soul
The eyes are the window to the soul
AND, they’re a window to a LOT more.
If you get out of your head, and turn off those chattering voices that are always in the back of our minds, you can get a TON of information just from somebody eyes.
How tight or loose the skin is around them, how slowly they move around, or how quickly they dart.
How quickly or slowly the pupils open or shut, as if their emotions are being overloaded by all the activity or reality around them.
How they see themselves as part of their reality will come across in their eyes. Are they merely present, are they a victim, or do they feel absolutely and completely at home, wherever they go?
Here’s something else that’s pretty amazing, as well as extremely controversial.
This was the result of a scientific study done recently.
Just by looking at somebody’s picture, most folks can accurately tell if they are above average, average, or below average in intelligence.
Combine this with their level of fear or comfort in their situation, it’s absolutely possible to size somebody up completely.
On some level, we all know this. I know that judging people is a big “no no,” that it’s unkind, unfair, and sometimes illegal.
But whenever you walk into a room, you ALWAYS do this. You subconsciously scan the room, and decide, within an instant, who you “accept” and who you don’t “accept.”
Who you’d trust, and who you wouldn’t. Who you wouldn’t mind sitting next to, and who you’d want to steer clear of.
Like I said, most of us don’t like to admit this part of ourselves. We’d like to think we are completely accepting of others, all the time.
But deep below our conscious awareness and moral sensibilities is that ancient animal that’s in all of us.
And while most of us are capable of turning off those instincts, a lot of people don’t.
Meaning if YOU don’t judge people when you walk into a room, most other people do.
This isn’t an easy truth to accept. But there it is.
The question is, what will you do about it?
You can hope that everybody will hold hands and accept everybody as equally valid.
But that rarely happens, at least in the REAL world.
Which means the better you present yourself, the more opportunities you’ll find.
