You’ve probably guessed that you could tell a lot about someone just by looking at their eyes, but now there may be some facts to back that up.
Edinburgh University’s Dr. Anthony Fallone has said that “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, it seems to hold vital clues to our brain function.” This is why the recent Swedish study at Orebro University is so interesting, because it found correlations between eye color and personality type of 428 people.
Black Eyes = Curiosity, Mystery, Depth
Although we don’t see such dark shades of brown in eye color very often, we call them black eyes. People with these dark eyes are often spiritual, interested in pursuing different interests than others, and have an insatiable curiosity to know things.
Brown Eyes = Leadership, Creativity, Courage
We see these all over, and they are also associated with sociality, friendliness and confidence. People with brown eyes are natural leaders, so they command a room and most of the time they get the attention they seek. They pursue creative projects as often as they can, and are always thinking about what they can turn into something new.
Hazel Eyes = Spontaneity, Independence
This blend of brown and green is a beautiful and rare color, and it represents a spontaneous and independent person. They love to go out with friends or on their own, and they often take off on great adventures at a moment’s notice. They’re self-confident, and they have every right to be!
Gray Eyes = Intelligence, Wisdom
People with gray eyes are quiet, but inside they are a world of knowledge that is just waiting to burst. You’ll often find them buried in their latest book purchase, or reading up on the most recent discoveries (you might even be reading this for that very reason right now!).
Green Eyes = Compassion, Seduction, Vitality
Having bright green eyes is a striking feature that will immediately gain the attention of suitors and crushes alike. These people are confident and have sex appeal like no other, but they also have a mind for others and can display a good level of empathy.
Blue Eyes = Strong Inside and Out
If you’ve got baby blues, you know that you’re the most attractive and in-demand color there is. The boldness of blue eyes projects strength and self-sufficiency, and these people are often more extroverted and seeking out what they want instead of waiting around to get it.
