With some science backed research, personality traits and eye colour studied by doctors around the globe seems to have some links, commonalities and interesting finds. With our eyes connected directly to the brain hence neural pathways, it is almost too easy to believe there would be some link to the colour of the iris and what’s happening behind those ‘windows to the soul’.


Dark Brown/Black Eyes (rarest of eye colour)

  • With deep dark eyes, individuals with the darkest brown almost black eyes almost never go without being noticed and people often view them as natural born leaders whether they feel it or not
  • Because it is hard to differentiate between the iris and the pupil, those who see people with this kind of eye colour often consider them mysterious or secretive
  • These individuals are light drinkers compared to lighter eyed individuals
  • Better at sports that involve hitting a target (tennis, archery, golf, billards…) due to the increased melanin in the eye, people see these individuals as talented and gifted


Blue Eyes

  • Research done by German psychologist concluded based on their research that children born with blue eyes were seemingly less enthused to try new things and were more closed off around their peers
  • While people with blue eyes might seem timid, weak, less adventurous and untrustworthy but those with blue eyes tend to posses great physical and inner strength – a quiet confidence if you will
  • If you like to drink, research from Georgia State University found individuals with light eyes tend to drink more in order to get drunk compared to those with darker eyes
  • Research conducted by the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine concluded that women with lighter eyes were found to handle the pain of child birth better than those with darker eyes and along with that, were found to suffered less from postpartum anxiety and depression


Grey Eyes

  • Considered to be a variation of blue eyes, people with light to dark grey eyes have a differing amount of melanin which causes the distinct difference in eye colour

  • Given this characteristic trait, people with Hazel eyes are often told from an early age how unique and different they are translating into people who are more independent, spontaneous and confident
  • While the melanin in each hazel eye is different which makes it hard to nail down personality traits associated with these individuals, people with hazel eyes seem to enjoy balance in their life and aren’t phased by new things
  • Downside to this eye colour, research conducted at the University of South Australia has linked hazel eyes to liver imbalance and digestive issues


Brown Eyes

  • With less melanin than those with the darkest brown/black eyes, people are able to easily distinguish the iris from the pupil
  • People tend to consider those with brown eyes as assertive and trustworthy
  • Research from the The Charles University in Prague links people with brown eyes to such character traits as loyal, respectful, gentle – yet not submissive
