What Your Eyes Say About You!

eyesThe eyes are the window to the soul… 

One of the most expressive parts of the face, they communicate warmth or coldness, love or dislike, brightness or fatigue. 

Scientists have actually demonstrated a link between eye colour and personality, giving a fascinating insight into the link between genetics and how we act or feel.

This may sound distinctly unscientific, but a team at Orebro University in Sweden concluded back in 2007 that the iris is affected by the same genes that form the frontal lobe of the brain (study of 428 people). This gives a very scientific rationale for the view that there similar personality traits among people with similar eye colours.

There have been a number of studies into this area, both scientific and psychological, revealing quite a variety of answers, including:

Brown Eyes

  • Brown eyes are the most common colour accounting for about 55% of the world.
  • Charles University in Prague found that people with brown eyes were generally loyal, respectful, and gentle people, though certainly not submissive.
  • Other opinions describe brown eyes as being a sign of kindness, practicality, confidence and caring.

Blue Eyes

  • One study shows that those with blue eyes may be seen as weak or shy while another finds that the perception is competitive and ‘egotistical’.
  • German psychologists found that blue-eyed children tended to be wary of new things and were considerably less open around their peers.
  • Other theories say that those with blue eyes are peaceful or lively, shy or extrovert…  There are a range of theories, but blue eyes are the most ‘desired’ eye colour, so they’re certainly seen as attractive!

Green Eyes

  • People with green eyes are seen as sexy and mysterious, perhaps as this is a more unusual colour.
  • They’re also associated with less attractive traits of envy or jealousy.

Dark Brown/Black Eyes

  • A study at the University of Queensland and the University of New South Wales (Australia) found that depth of eye colour could be an indicator of how ‘agreeable’ a person is.
  • Northern Europeans with lighter eyes were seen as more competitive and skeptical, but those with darker eyes were seen as kinder and more helpful and agreeable.
  • Truly black eyes are rare, but tend to be seen as trustworthy, though also somewhat secretive.

There seem to be a range of theories based on a combination of scientific research and urban myth.

Eye Expressions

One thing’s for sure, the colour of eyes is only one factor in how our eyes affect how we’re perceived. If you look worn out, people will notice that.  Expressions are also key. You may feel fine, but people automatically pick up on these ‘body language’ signs and adjust how they interact with you.

Tired-Looking Eyes

Tired-looking eyes can also have a big impact.

Moody Eyes

  • The vertical crease that can appear between eyebrows can make a person look cross or angry all the time
  • Hooded eyes or a lower brow can make a person look downcast or sad

SkinViva see many patients whose expression – quite out of their control – affects how others see them.

In these cases, treatments can affect not only how a person looks physically, but also how they appear in terms of their mood. Tackling these issues can make a person look not only younger, but also healthier, happier, warmer and more receptive.
