Owh today's post is pretty interactive. It’s bout reading others’ feeling through the eyes expression. Not a very long entry but I try to make it interactive as possible. Erm, Do you ever wonder if you can read people minds? I’m sure you must be thinking, “Owh I dun have that kind of superpower.” Well, certainly you don’t have to work hard to get that superpower. Yeah, it’s true you can make a judgement towards people feeling through facial expression (which may include mouth, eyes, and skin contraction) but sometimes, people know how to hide that overall expression. But eyes can’t cheat, well at least in most of the case. That why we used to heard this kind of phrase “Eyes are the window of soul” or in Malay we said, “Dari mata jatuh ke hati”.

Cicero (106-43 B.C.) is quoted as saying,
Ut imago est animi voltus sic indices oculi” which mean “the face is a picture of the mind as the eyes are its interpreter”.

The Latin proverbs,
Vultus est index animi” or “Oculus animi index” brings the meaning of “the face is the index of the mind.'

The French say,
Les yeux sont le miroir de l'dme” wish is translated as “the eyes are the mirror of the soul”. “The eyes are the window of the soul” is a variant form of the proverb...

It’s some sort of like a bonus when you capable of actually perceive what the other person is trying to tell you, without relying completely on the words they are saying. So, I got some trial here for you to test you mind-reading capability of explaining how the person is feeling towards you with just looking at their eyes. So, here I give you seven sets of eyes.

Eyes Expression Set Feeling
eyes 1 1   playful
eyes 2 2 uneasy
eyes 3 3 sympathetic
eyes 4 4 interested
eyes 5 5 fantasizing
eyes 6 6 desire
eyes 7 7 confident

So, now try to match the eyes expression set with the feeling. And put the answer at the comment box below. If you score all correct, then you have an ability to read people and have an advantage to realize how your social life would be. I’ll give out the answer on the comment below when I’m happy with the responds given by you guys, OK. Happy experimenting…

*P/S : I’m only got 5/7. How bout you guys?
