The expression that your eyes are the window to your soul is pretty cliche these days, but now it looks like there’s some real science to back up the expressions. 428 subjects were studied by scientists at the Orebro University in Sweden to see if personality traits could be linked to their eye colors.
“The eye is so closely linked neurologically to the brain that you might call it the only part of our brain you can see from the outside,” says Dr. Antony Fallone of Edinburgh university. “It seems to hold vital clues to our brain function.”
So let’s go down the list of eye colors:
Dark Brown Eyes.
People who have dark brown eyes are natural leaders. Those who have eyes which almost appear black have the rarest color. These people are often secretive and mysterious. However, a study in Current Psychology reported by Medical Daily found that those with darker eyes are generally thought of as agreeable.
If the amount of melanin in your body is high, your eyes will be darker. Melanin operates as an insulator for connection between the brain cells. So, more melanin means that your brain will react quickly. According to Personality and Individual Differences , “people with very dark eyes tend to drink considerably less than those with lighter eyes.”
If you have brown eyes then you might be loyal, trustworthy, respectful, and gentle – but certainly not submissive. Chronobiology International published a study in which it was found that those with brown eyes sleep 2 hours lesser than those with light-colored eyes. They also have a hard time waking up in the morning.
You have great inner and physical strength, though it’s sometimes a struggle for people to see it. People are often quick to judge you before they know you. They see you as weak or timid. Despite that, women with blue eyes were found to tolerate the pain of child birth better. You’re also able to handle some forms of anxiety and depression better. You’re ambitious, sharp, and inquisitive. In the professional world, not much stands in your way.
Gray eyes are incredibly rare. If you have gray eyes, it’s actually a shade of blue that’s just a bit more dim. You’re an exceptionally well balanced person but there is an inner part of you that can feel sometimes difficult to control. You tend to be defensive and make people work hard to get through your barriers.
It is a difficult color to describe. It bore its name because of similarities with the color of hazelnut. Hazel eyes look like they change color from green to brown according to The Eye Doctor Guide. Hazel eyes are definitely very uncommon and such people are unique.
People who have hazel eyes can be difficult to read so a particular personality cannot be pinned down. But such people have a balanced personality. They do not jump to the extremes.
People with green eyes tend to appear mysterious, sexy and alluring. They have proportioned amount of melanin which makes them agreeable yet dominant, strong yet cautious.
Ophthalmologist Surgeon Doctor Hamadi Kallel says that those with green eyes are “original, creative and perform well under great pressure.” He also says that such people have “an air of mystery and a quiet self-sufficiency.”
