What Does Your Eye Color Mean?

Eyes are one of the most beautiful and expressive components of the human body, possessing the ability to reveal our innermost emotions. They are our window to the outside world. 

Since our eyes are considered the window to the soul, a certain curiosity was roused in me —  can the color of your eyes reveal specific aspects of our personality, and help us learn more about ourselves? Eye color is dependent on genetic makeup, but psychologists have traced certain eye colors back to specific personality traits. Following we explain, albeit briefly, what eye color is thought to represent. Not to be taken too seriously, this is more of a fun test to see if any of the said personality traits match up with you and your eye color!

Blue Eyes 

Blue eyes are often thought to be the most desirable. As babies, many of us are born with deep blue irises, but are quick to change within 2 weeks. Most people associate blue eyes with “eternal youth,” as a result. It is said that most people with blue eyes are attractive, in addition to possessing a very calm and peaceful personality. Blue eyes are also representative of knowledge.

Brown Eyes

Brown is one of the most common of eye colors, and people who don this hue are said to be very independent, self-confident and determined. You are known to be trustworthy, and you offer up a sense of security and stability to anyone in your periphery.

Green Eyes

Green eyes, because they are somewhat rare, are often considered mysterious. People with green eyes are said to be curious about nature, very passionate in their relationships, and have an overall positive and creative outlook on life. These people tend to get jealous easily, but possess large amounts of love.

Hazel Eyes

Hazel eyes are actually a mixture of colors, most commonly green and brown. People with hazel eyes are thought to be spontaneous and will rarely back down from a challenge. If more green is present, you may be a bit mischievous. If there is more brown in your eyes, you are more approachable. Hazel eyes are likened to mood rings because of their ability to “change color” in certain situations.

Black Eyes

People with black eyes are known to be very secretive and keep to themselves until they feel comfortable. They can be very passionate and loyal, especially to their friends. People with black eyes are also very intuitive and may possess the ability to tap into powerful energy.

Gray Eyes

Perhaps the rarest of eye colors, gray represents wisdom and gentleness. Gray-eyed people are sensitive, but possess a great deal of inner strength and think analytically. They can also change their mood to suit any situation at hand.

I agree with Meadow’s comment. What about the rarest eye colour in the world: grey? I have grey eyes.

Adrienne Michel

This eye colour is so rare there was not enough population to study the personality traits….lets say….grey eyes….the rarest color is the most mysterious. Can see into your soul and know your deepest thoughts and desires. Approach carefully,even though they make the best most loyal friends if you hurt them they will never forget, be true and a grey eyed friend you will have till death party ye…

thalía

the rarest eye color in the world is green. 2% of the world’s population has green eyes. (im a lucky one) i just had to correct you. gray eyes hold 3% of the world’s population.

thalía

It’s the last entry. How you two missed it is beyond me, Hon.

Callie

I have hazel eyes, I thought it was a good description, but my eyes also sometimes turn a golden/yellow color. Is there a description for that? <3 xoxo

Adrienne Michel

Grey eyed girl over here!

thalía

Stephanie H

Same here. I also have gray eyes…Really light gray, like some wolves’ eyes are. No hints of blue whatsoever in them!

Hannah

I have blue eyes and I was surprised at how dead on it was! People always tell me how calm I am! Thanks for the post!

Janice

I have blue eyes as well, I am calm and peaceful by nature.

this is interesting. my eyes are like kaleidoscopes; they constantly change between hues of green and blue, depending on what i’m wearing or where i am. if i wear green, they reflect the color i’m wearing. if i’m by the ocean, they turn the turquoise of the water, etc. it would’ve been interesting to see if there are any hybrid eye-color examples lol. but both the blue and green eyes description seem to fit very well with my personality. thanks for sharing this.

Kelli

My eyes are gray and hazel and both fit me perfectly!

This is such a fantastic post! The photography is inspiring as well!

By saying most of us are born with blue eyes you’re making the assumption most people are white. Most of the world ISN’T white and therefore most of us weren’t born with blue eyes. The rest post is absolutely ridiculous as there is no scientific evidence proving a link between eye colour and personality.

Raven

I am a gray eyed mom of 6, African descent and all my children had that blue eyed hue which did disappear about 2 weeks later. And I have seen it among other minorities. Research, it’s all true. My gray eyes reflect the colors I wear & they change with my mood. People think my eyes are blue, until I correct them. Now I am 63 years old & they do look blue. LOL.

kathryn

so many blanket statements! of course everyone will agree with whatever it says for their eye color, just like any form of astrology.

(Jasmine) there obviously isn’t an actual link between eye color and personality, it’s just fun to think about for some people. The same way there’s no actual link between our birthdays and personalities. Not that we have any evidence of, at least.

I’m a black eyed girl!! Interesting post!

99.9999% of Asians have brown eyes….and not all Asians are the same, obviously. Also, I have brown eyes and I am neither self-confident nor determined.

Alyssa

Im a green eyed girl and this was spot on! great post, its fun and not meant to be serious :)

Haha there’s no such thing as BLACK eyes! Deep deep brown maybe.

I have those black eyes (deep deep brown eyes)

I have green eyes and think the description was spot on. My younger brothers have green eyes as well- we were all blue eyed until we were pre-teens when our eyes changed colors. Their eyes went green when they were… 10 maybe? I colored my hair red for the first time when I was about 11 and then the next day I woke up and my eyes had gone from true blue to a very pale green. They’ve since darkened, but I thought it was funny how our eyes changed. My eldest brother and younger sister are both still blue… Read more »
