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 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 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, 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 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.
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.
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.
