Reading eyes

19 02 2012

When I started reading psychology first line of my book said Human is most multifaceted animal with complex brain.
I believe, its dam difficult to predict someone or know what in that’s persons mind.
The six different eye patterns listed below are the average person’s natural habits. Statistically speaking, most people’s eye patterns match the patterns above.

To the right– When a person’s eyes look to the right, they are constructing an auditory thought. (your left)

Try this1: Tell someone to think of the noise of thunder and watch their eyes. They will move to the right as they attempt to listen to the noise of thunder in their mind.

Try this 2: think of the sound of mobile bell.


Up and to the left– This indicates a visually remembered image. (your right)

Try this1:: Ask someone to remember the color of their house, and watch as their eyes quickly move up and to the left. In their mind, they are visually remembering the color of their house.

Try this 2: What did you wear yesterday?

Up and to the right– This eye movement indicates a visually constructed image. (your left)

Try this1: If you ask someone to picture a sailboat sailing on the ocean, this will be the direction their eyes will move.

Try this 2: Picture a giant ice cream with a scoop of every single flavor.

·   To the left– Looking to the left is an indication of an auditory memory. (your right)

Try this1:: Ask someone to listen to their favorite song in their mind, and they will look in this direction.

Try this 2: Remember the sound of your best friends voice.

·    Down and to the right– Typically this is an indication of someone creating a feeling or sensory impression. Their eyes will move this way when they are trying to recall a taste, smell, or feeling. (your right)

Try this1: For example, ask someone to remember their last meal, and watch as their eyes move down and to the left.

Try this 2: How does it feel when you walk barefoot on mud?

·       Down and to the left– This is the direction someone’s eyes will move while they “talk to themselves” (your left)

Put simply…

Looking to their right or up and to their right:

–>Using their imagination – watch out for exaggeration of the truth or for complete lies.

– Looking down and to their right, or to their left, or up and to their left:

–>Using their memory – they are being honest and truthful.

Looking down and to their left:

–>Deep in thought.

IMPORTANT NOTE: use it to potentially confirm meanings you have deducted from several other physical cues – not as a main reference to judge what someone is thinking.

Well now you too can detect a lie? Typically, if you ask someone a question and they glance to the right (your left) they are creating something, or in other words lying. But as first line said human is very complex animal so don’t punch on eyes without knowing complete fact.




Divine Creations – taken for granted

10 02 2012

Well it has been few days when I felt like writing about this topic but could not manage to get words. May be I fall short of it. It made me put made me put my hands on keyboard when I saw a girl of 24-25 fighting with mom over phone explaining her that she gets bored to come home after office and wants to be out with friends. Well! Nothing wrong. Yet, another incidence was where my 14-15 years student badmouthed about mother declared her to ruin his life.

I feel one person we surely take for granted is our mom. May be because we know she is there and always there. From the time we dint exist to our day of conception.

She nurture, she played, she fed, bathed, and taught how to tie their shoes and ride a bike and do homework and brush teeth. Nights when she was up looking at our needs, the days she sacrificed her big things for our small silly wants. Well it never ended.

She smiled and was proud even when we came from school and argued “you don’t know anything.” She felt happy you knew more. She was one praying all time when you wrote exam or were riding bike.  Demanded everything for you before her. She was one who made you feel like winner even when you  lost. She made you dream big. She was one holding you when your friends ditched you after all your loyalty, and loved one left breaking your heart.

Ya, I do know there are lot many argument on this which I will get from my readers.

“ My mom never understood me….she always made me feel I am a looser….she does not trust…”

Hummm, and lot …but guys remember you are what she made you. Her shouting , nagging made you fear and toil for being better. She is also a human being and can make mistakes. But can’t we give her few let go’s? When she has been letting go for ages. Can’t we hold her and show new world, when she was one who brought us to this world.

I read somewhere:

 Your Mother lives inside your laughter. And she’s crystallized in every tear drop.

Trick to channelize energy in class

1 02 2012

I came across news headlines ‘Indian kids need proper channelising’-Times of India. This immediately connected me with a staffroom. Link between staffroom and this was, teaches between two class or in brakes come shouting inside and pass statement on kids. 90% of them are complains and 10% is praising.
Just recall you must have heard this in any school for sure:
‘XYZ keeps on talking even after number of warnings’
‘Xyz is restless, distracted’
‘This class is most horrible to control’
‘he/she is talented but on wrong tracks’…………and so on.
Yes , channelizing is absolute right word for it. When the student’s needs are met, they are engaged in their learning. When students are disinterested, they become bored and sometimes resort to disruptive behavior. Channelizing is just carting to each and every child need by engaging them in task way they would love to do it using their talent.
In such case multiple intelligence theory makes a dynamic constructive change. Tailoring classroom activities to individual students’ needs, interests, and strengths makes sense. It does at a thought demand lot of involvement from teacher but I can land some tricks on it.

I. Make classroom jobs:
1. Cleanliness administrator – makes sure the class always has a supply of sharpened pencils.
2. Board Monitor – Class board has to be cleaned, with date and day, thought for day.
3. Dress code monitor- Will go around class and inspect all pupils for dress code from hair to socks and shoes.
4. Class décor in charge- Has to put all chart and display work effectively.
5. Attendance Person – takes the attendance in class.
6. Homework Monitor – tells students who were absent what homework they missed
7. Work supervisor- This child has to inspect all other kids for quality of work and report teacher.
8. Travel detail keeper: These kids are responsible to make a list of class students if they travel buy school bus, which number or go walking
9. Classroom rule makers: make class rules
10. Artist of class: Making art corner in class by putting up given art work in artistic way.
11. Lunch supervisor
12. Subject manager
13. Teachers assistant
14. Mentors
15. New reporters
16. Researcher
Reward kids with stars, certificates etc at month end. See if job rotation is required.
II. Teaching with different senses:
Same topic in class will be understood and developed in different way by different kids.
If you r teaching for example qualities of Entrepreneur – One kid would love watching success documentary to get involve in topic , some other would love reading biography or online material, or may be by making painting of famous entrepreneur , may be doing a small campus enterprise job.
You just need to give them chance and put their energy to use. The love it, so they will do it. On other hand they will have no space for becoming a problem child for you.
Child is never a problem; Problem is we don’t give them a fair chance.
