Can you tell just looking in someones eyes whether you can trust them or not?


I use to be really good at that but the older I get the more unsure I am. How about you? Do you go on first impressions?

 

sort by best latest

    Just sitting around waiting on a new owner for Sally....~. I trusted my instincts early on and was almost if not almost always right. Maybe has something to do with being Christian too, you reckon? Maybe the Holy Spirit gives us insight? Hope so!

    I am afraid there will be many in last days word that we will not be able to trust & as they come from every color & nationality we just cannot make a quick decision unfortunately.A shame but I guess we will have to suspect anyone different

    Thanks Angela; lol. It does seem people will avoid looking you in the eye and some just act busy doing something while they talk and those I think know they can't hide their lying eyes!

    This reminds me of liars I have known in the past & I wondered how they fooled so many people for so long. I do think it is good to be wary of people we have in our homes esp as I have been taken advantage of even if they weren't stealing from me

    Yes, that has happened to me more than once and I regretted not going with my first reaction to them!

    Electronics would perhaps make it somewhat different today I imagine.

    I fall into your camp, Kara. I've usually found my first impressions to be wrong, and therefore try to rank people as "good folks until proven guilty"! But it can be difficult. How can we know when intuition is superstition in disguise?

    Well I had a great interest in psychology of adults and children and took those classes in school. Perhaps those did help me to judge.

    I can see it could be unfair to prejudge but so far I don't recall being wrong at this except for a couple times thinking I was wrong and then finding out later I wasn't. lol

    I have spoken to those who lie so well! Scary people!

    It would not of course be true of everyone who does not look you in the eye but I think the soul does show through the eyes & we can read others by that in many if not all cases. I have found it to be true younger anyway when I was among ppl more

    Maybe that is why older people seem to like to talk to me...because I am interested in what they are saying and look them in the eye. Always wondered about that...could be the answer. Thanks.

    Thanks Lisa and for me it is based more on younger days for I am not in contact daily with people as I once was and I bet it would be harder to know!

    Also Jackie think about the timid and shy personality they exist as well as bold and boisterous, just like a doctor can not treat all his patients alike nore treat or prescribe the same medication and treatment , it would wrong to test all the same.

    Yes it is Michael and I believe trusting the Holy Spirit that guides us through life helps us to know and of course we would none make any snap judgement but trust our Spirit to discern in due time if what our heart decides is correct in feeling.
