Do you know that you can tell if a person is constructing or accessing memories of pictures, sounds or feelings in their brain by the direction their eyes look?
You can tell whether they are lying / constructing when you ask them a question. Or whether they are remembering a true event.
In this post I am going to teach you how to read peoples eye movements, and in the second post after this I have given you an instagram guide for reference and a link to 2 Youtube videos to watch, and I know that you are going to learn a lot and have fun with this new information. You will quickly learn to do this as a habit and you will have insight to peoples thinking at a profound level.
Adults and kids will never be able to pull the wool over your eyes again, people will wonder why you know so much about exactly what they are thinking, your communication and persuasion skills will take a quantum leap.
Think about how, you knowing what people are thinking could benefit you in your everyday life [ although in most cases you may not know exactly the minute details, you will have a very good idea, and be able to make a very near / educated guess ].
So lets begin with the lesson. [ this is all drawn on the instagram in part 2]
1.Looking directly at a persons eyes that you are communicating with, if they look up to the right [ your right] they are “recalling / remembering, an image / a picture. A question to test this might be , what colour is your front door? or, what colour was your first car? in other words a question that will force them to visualise a picture.
2.If you ask them a question that gets them to construct a picture they will have to look up and to the left [ your left] a question might be for example, describe what would an orange horse would look like. Usually if you ask a question about what someone has done and they look up to the left they are making it up / constructing not recalling.
3.If their eyes look sideways to the right[ your right] they are recalling a sound / verbalising, so if you ask them some ones name or a place name , or if you ask them what was said, this is where they look.
4.If their eyes look sideways to the left [ your left] they are constructing either a sound or what they are saying rather than recalling it. If they were doing this when taliking about a conversation they had they would be making it up or adding their own bits to it.
5. If their eyes look downwards to the right [ your right] they are using internal dialogue / speaking to themselves. Ask them to think of three reasons to vote for a certain politician, or what shopping they need when they next visit the shops. You will see many people in this pose looking down walking along the street talking to themselves, sometimes you see their mouth moving going over what they will say or should have said in a conversation.
6. Their eyes are looking down and to the left[ your left] this is where the person is remembering a feeling, if you ask a question, describe what it feel like when …… , they will have to look down there to access and describe the feeling.[ the person is looking down to their right[ your left[ this is where the saying “down right angry” comes from, also people have to look down there to access depression, that is why depressed people slump in a poor posture, because depressed people live down there, while they are depressed.
Recap… you looking at their eyes.
1. Up to right = visual recall
2. Up to left = visual construct
3.Right and to the side = auditory recall
4.Left and to the side = auditory construct
5.Down and to the right = internal dialogue
6.Down and to the left= kinasthetic / feelings
Note these eye movements are for right handed people, some left handed people have these eye movements reversed , there are only a minority of the population that are left handed. If in doubt ask them some test questions in general conversation.
I have included an instagram in part 2 and links to two videos on you tube for you to look at using this process, at the beginning it may seem a lot to remember but you will very soon pick up this skill, try it for a week at work and in your social life, I can promise you that it will be fun, and very educational, this is a skill that you will recieve great benefit from.
Have fun and have a great day, best regards, from Keith.
