    Smile Eye Direction and Cognitive Function

    Earth, Intelligence, maturation and disorders

    Okay, you'll have to scroll down the article passed all the New Agey stuff, almost to the bottom and there is an interesting bit about the direction a person's eyes move and what cognitive function they might be using.

    Please discuss your thoughts.

    Could something like this be true?

    EDIT: Thanks to everyone who takes the time to experiment and can be a little lighthearted about things!

    According to the article:

    That is for Thinking they would peer upper left, for iNtuition they would look upper right, Sensing lower left and Feeling lower right.

    But who knows if this is true or not? Just wondering what other people's results would be in experimentation.

    I have such a bad sense of direction and poor ability to interpret these images in context of the position of my own eyes that I have no idea what they are trying to convey.

    But here's what I personally notice:

    If I look up and to my right, I find it easier to add/subtract numbers.

    If I look down and to my left, my mind seems to become clear/calm, and I hear sound more clearly.

    If I look up and to my left, I begin thinking of random words or phrases together in unusual ways, most of which make absolutely no sense.

    If I look down and to my right, I start thinking that I must terribly suggestable for even contemplating such a silly idea, and that I should quit messing with my eyes before I go cross-eyed.


    Could someone map these to what the author of the page wrote, and see if it's similar, inverted, or even slightly related to what was written?

    Well, yes, I saw that. But the thing is, I think it tells you what another person's eyes would be doing if you looked at them. I'm looking out from my own eyes, so I don't know how to apply this map, or which directions should be reversed. Just up and down? Just left and right? Both? I know it wouldn't be exactly the same if you do this with yourself rather than looking at another person's eyes, and I don't know how to "convert" the direction indications.

    My grandpa, a retired police officer, told me a loong time ago that people look to the bottom left when they're recalling something (i.e. telling the truth) and to the top right when lying.

    That completely correlates, but it also means I have spent years training my eyes to always go to the lower left, thinking that I want to be perceived as a truthful human.

    When I'm consciously "thinking" about anything I look to the lower left out of habit now... I very seriously drilled that into myself when I was young. When I'm daydreaming I do find myself looking to the upper right.
