What Does Your Eye Color Say About You?

The eyes are the windows to the soul. Recent scientific discoveries might have shown this is truer than we would imagine. In actual facts, your eye color and pattern is not only the windows to your soul but your personality as well.

We have all taken personality tests that seems to describe our qualities, flaws, and traits, providing accurate details through results and revealing secrets about ourselves. Have you ever thought your eye color would reveal as much?

Researchers at Orebro University in Sweden studied the eyes of 428 subjects by comparing their eyes to their dominant trait and were able to identify a pattern in the subjects, reading their tendency towards forgiveness, spontaneity, and compassion. This novel research focuses on the pattern and shape of the iris and considered genetic variation along and the effect of a gene called PAX6.

Though, the study did not identify eye color as a personality marker, a psychologist, Dr. Anthony Fallone at the University of Edinburgh support this theory. He said, “The eye is closely linked neurologically to the brain that you may call it the only part of the brain visible from the outside.” Therefore, the eyes hold vital clues to our brain function.

It is difficult to ascertain if your eye is a pointer to your personality, and the following information may not hold true in your case. Keep in mind the scientist need to carry out more research to formulate a compelling theory. But in this instance, and for levity, you might learn a thing or two about your personality in the process.

Dark brown/Black eyes

This eye color is rare, people with such dark brown eyes appearing almost black are often seen as mysterious.
