A look says a lot about a person. At least, the eyes are what most catches my attention when I first meet someone; I can know a lot thanks to his eyes.

People can tell how someone is feeling just by looking at their eyes. We know if he understood something we told him if he paid attention to us; and even if he likes us.

We can also know the state of health of someone by the color of the sclera. However, a very interesting fact is that you can tell how intelligent someone is thanks to their eyes; specifically, for his pupil.

The Science About It

A study claims that you can tell someone's IQ just by measuring the size of the pupil.

Of course, certain conditions of the place must be taken into account so that the results are true and satisfactory.

The research was directed at measuring pupil dilation as a sign of mental effort. However, the purpose changed when the researchers realized that the pupil had a larger diameter in participants who performed better on memory tasks. It was then that they were asked to carry out reasoning, memory, and attention tasks. They wanted to see if there was any link between pupil size and cognitive performance.

The authors stated that the growth of the pupils while the brain "works" can be seen with the naked eye. They concluded that having a larger pupil implies higher than normal intelligence. In people who have them, their ability to reason is more fluid when faced with new experiences. In addition, larger pupil diameter is related to greater concentration and memory.

Despite everything found, the news is not conclusive either.

Researchers believe that having a larger pupil is linked to a brain area called the locus coeruleus. This area influences brain functions such as memory, attention, and learning; all are important in fluid intelligence. However, when the LC malfunctions, a person can develop depression, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

What does intelligence have to do with the Locus coeruleus? They believe that people with a larger pupillary diameter may have a larger and more functional locus coeruleus. Even so, we must wait for other studies to confirm these conjectures.

Intelligence is not only memory, reason, and attention

Today we are clear that human intelligence is not limited to memorizing data, solving problems, and concentrating. Furthermore, it is known that there are about 12 types of intelligence and you can be very brilliant in several of them.

These are:


This intelligence is evident in writers, poets, composers. It is about the ability to master the language in all its forms, including gestural communication.

Mathematical logician

It applies to all people who professionally use mathematics and logic.

As its name indicates, it is the ability to work with numbers, logical operations, and symbols. This makes the person with this type of intelligence have deductive, logical abilities and effectively solve mathematical problems.


This type of intelligence has to do with the ability to observe the world and objects from different perspectives. In addition to this, it also involves the manipulation and creation of mental images to solve problems. 

This is the kind of intelligence mastered by architects, draughtsmen, sculptors, painters, and pilots.


As its name indicates, those who possess this type of intelligence are musicians, composers, singers, and anyone who is dedicated to this art.

Obviously, they can play any instrument, read and compose complex musical pieces.

bodily and kinesthetic

Dancers, athletes, and acrobats of all kinds have a great ability to control every part of their bodies. This is what this kind of intelligence is all about.


People who are owners of this type of intelligence are skilled in knowing themselves. To some, it may seem like a small thing, but it is not.

Someone with this type of intelligence enjoys experiencing their own emotions and feelings, this, in turn, helps them better understand and comprehend the people around them.


Every person who is able to get along with others possesses this kind of intelligence. It does not refer especially to being someone social, but rather shows an interest in understanding and empathizing with others.

It is typical in politicians, teachers, and actors.


It is the union of the two previous bits of intelligence. It is made up of 5 aspects: emotional self-awareness, emotional self-control, self-motivation, empathy, and social skills.

A person with these skills is able to minimize the effects of stress; In addition, they live with more well-being than other people, because their lives are more harmonious.


It is the ability to be sensitive to the natural world. This intelligence is typical of naturalists, taxonomists, biologists, ecologists, and people who love to take care of the environment and everything that it implies.


Howard Gardner defines this type of intelligence as "the ability to situate oneself with respect to the cosmos and with respect to the existential features of the human condition, such as the meaning of life and death, the final destination of the physical world and psychological in profound experiences such as love for another person.

In other words, it is the search for the meaning of life and self-knowledge. Someone with this kind of intelligence has their own set of values ​​and has their own spiritual concepts.


Someone with creative intelligence is capable of producing many ideas that lead them to find effective and somewhat extraordinary solutions to everyday problems.


This is the intelligence used by people capable of working as a team, of providing selfless service.

I do not wish to minimize the importance of studies on size and the pupil and its relation to intelligence. What I want is for you to know that our brain processes are much more complex than just memorizing or paying attention.

We can be smart in various areas of human performance and this is great because it doesn't reduce us to a medical measure that gives exclusivity. Being smart in various areas gives you an incredible range of possibilities and makes you unstoppable.

The limit is beyond the moon.
