What Your Eyes Say About You (Dark/Brown vs Lighter Eye Colours)

Have you ever wondered why you act the way you do or  why your friends act the way they do? It makes sense that a lot of our personality can be determined by what order we were born among our siblings, or the time of the year that we were born, but you might be surprised to find out that a lot can be determined by the color of your eyes.

There have been many scientific studies conducted over the years on eye color, focusing less on the specific shade of color and more on the lightness and darkness of them. Brown is the most common eye color of them all, with an estimated 55% of people in the world having eyes this color, and the rest are split into shades of hazel, blue, green, silver, and amber. If you have brown eyes, you fall into the category of “darker” shades, and if you have any other color you likely fall into the “lighter” shade range.

Now, let me take you through the journey of  what the colour of your eyes say about your personality.

Dark/Brown Colour

If you have dark or brown eye colour, you appear to be trustworthy, the reason people or strangers can easily trust you with their properties or items.

You’re more likely to be skilled in sports that require a lot of focus and hand-eye coordination, like tennis and racquet ball. People with darker eyes have more melanin in their bodies, which insulates connections between brain cells and may cause them to fire more rapidly than their light-eyed counterparts. Remember the Williams Sisters?

As a dark-eyed or brown-eyed person you aren’t able to consume as much liquor as your light-eyed pals. Now you see why you  get tipsy so easily??

Lighter-Eyed Colours

A study tracking pregnant women found that lighter-eyed women were more able to handle the pain of childbirth than dark-eyed women. Not only that, but the dark-eyed women responded to epidurals much faster, showing a higher sensitivity to pain.

A study in Australia says that the light-eyed people are “less agreeable” and more competitive. The participants with dark eyes were more likely to be described with pleasant words like “empathy” and “compassion”.
