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:
You’re a natural leader, seemingly born to lead people through life. People with darker eyes are often seen as more agreeable too. You tend to drink less alcohol and love playing sports. Find your inner strength and you could rule the world.
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.
Hazel is another uncommon shade. This leads many hazel-eyed people to be told they’re special from a young age. You tend to be independent, confident, and spontaneous. Your personality can be a little more difficult to predict and pin down. That’s okay though, there’s nothing wrong with making the people in your life work a little bit for your approval.
If you have green eyes, you tend to be more alluring and mysterious. Green eyes are widely appealing to people and are often considered sexy. You are unpredictable but not quick to anger. You’re creative and perform well under pressure.
