It’s true.  Did you know that up to 80% of a human being’s ability to “read” other people — that is the ability to understand what another person is feeling whether it be love, anger, sadness, etc. — comes from observing another person’s eyes?

Folks with ASD (autism spectrum disorder) often are unable to read the eyes. Take this simple test by autism expert Simon Barron-Cohen (yes, he IS Sacha’s uncle!) to see how you do on the people reading scale.
