Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I do not. As I said I am not a professional and this I have heard from a professional who had about 20 years of experience at the time...
Yesterday on TV there was a Norwegian psychologist telling us that this man is a RARE kind of a mentally sick man that managed to hide his sickness.
You know the saying: Eyes are windows of a soul...Some people are able to lurk trough these windows...I try...

I find the "Eyes are the windows of the soul" idea  ludicrous. and the idea that he is the rare type of mentally sick person who can hide their sickness almost insulting in its lack of thought.

The major problem that people with mental illnesses face (Apart from the illnesses themselves) is that they are not instantly visible on the outside. people who dont have them are constantly faced by people saying "But theres nothing wrong with you".

Would that there was a simple thing visible on the inside of the eyes, but no it's rubbish.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

It's your right to believe and think what you want...
Regardless of mentally ill people I do believe and think that with perfectly healthy people their eyes can tell a lot about their character etc. Face and expressions are also revealing...
Maybe one have to live long enough and to be interested in people to realise that eyes are "windows of the soul". When one looks at his own photos when young it is usually easy to recognise "innocence" comparing with photos later in life. Our face is not blank page...People made science out of this issue...apart from medicine, criminology those results are used very widely...

If you're claiming your view is science-based, you should at least give some references.

I believe this discussion has gone wrong way and I'll stop here. It is not even relevant in this case.
Whoever is interested can investigate more by searching internet or talk to professionals.
