The ‘psychopath stare’

Your eyes, and their movements, can convey a lot of information about mood and emotions, from happiness to humor to boredom to disdain.

While your gaze might linger on someone you find attractive or appealing, you might quickly look away from something that frightens or disturbs you. Your pupils also dilate when you experience strong emotions, including fear, anger, and love (or lust).

Some experts even believe eyes can offer clues to underlying personality traits, offering support for the idea that your eyes offer a glimpse of your soul.

The various suggested characteristics of “psychopath eyes” seem to echo the general belief that people with ASPD have no emotions to show. 

These descriptions include:

  • dead, flat, or reptilian-like eyes
  • very dark irises, or eyes that appear black
  • pupils that don’t dilate
  • an expression, such as a smile, that doesn’t reach the eyes
  • a “soulless” stare
