Whenever you are in company of others, check if they make direct eye contact or avoid it. When your company refrained from seeing straight into your eyes, you may presume they're lacking enthusiasm or something else, like a trash can might have drawn their attention. Or in the worst case, they may not be telling the truth. Particularly if they gaze avert or shift sideways. However, when you observe that your company tend to keep their gaze alone, you may assume two things: either they feel restless or they agree to your suggestion or submit to your persona. If someone widens their pupils, then this may indicate their approval. How so? As they attempt to pay more attention and try to get engaged with the conversation, their pupils will inevitably enlarged to let more of what they like to enter their eyes. Under certain circumstances, this might be visible to you. But to suppose it right away, you may need a little training. You may also notice that someone's eyes blink more than usual. This is when you need to understand that they are in a struggle to keep calm. Something you say that bothers them or stressful situations can cause the rapid blinking of eyes. To some extent, the intense blinking of eyes along with the occasional touching of lips and eyes can also indicate that they are not being honest with you. Glancing at something can suggest a desire for that thing. For example, if someone glances at the door, this may indicate the desire to leave. Likewise, glancing at someone may express the desire to talk to him or her. When it comes to eye behavior, it is also suggested that looking upwards and to the right during a conversation indicates a lie has been told, while looking upwards into the left indicates the person is telling the truth. The reason for this is that people look up and into the right when using their imagination to think of a story, and look up to the left when they're recalling an actual memory.
