Remember that expression: “The eyes are the windows to the soul”? Well it may seem like an old cliche, but it looks as though there may be some real truth behind it! Scientists at the Orebro University of Sweden studied 428 subjects to find out if there was a link between eye color and personality traits. “The eye is so closely linked neurologically to the brain that you might call it the only part of our brain you can see from the outside,” says Dr. Antony Fallone of Edinburgh university. “It seems to hold vital clues to our brain function.”

Brown/Black Eyes

You’re a natural born leader, often taking the lead in daily situations without even realizing it.

You’re particularly agreeable and have great self control, not being too interested in drinking or partying and focusing on athleticism instead.

Draw on that leadership ability and you could be unstoppable!

Blue Eyes

You are a pillar of strength, inside and out, although others may often underestimate you. People are quick to make assumptions about you, thinking you might be weak or delicate, but they couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Blue-eyed women were found capable of tolerating the great pain of childbirth better than others, and people with blue eyes may also cope with anxiety and depression more easily.

You may come off as timid, but you’re clever, driven and ambitious. When it comes to your career, nothing will slow you down.

Gray Eyes

These are very rare among the general population, and are really more of a very light pale blue than true gray.

On the outside and for the most part, you are a very reasonable and balanced person, but your deeper issues and emotions are sometimes difficult for you to control.

Perhaps this is why you are very guarded and don’t let your walls down easily. Others have to work very hard to break through your barriers but find it well worthwhile when they do.

Hazel Eyes

Hazel is another rarer shade, which is why hazel-eyed people may have grown up being told they were unique or special.

You are a self starter, confident in your capabilities, and sometimes unpredictable.

People have a hard time reading you, but if they’re willing to put in a little extra effort, your friendship can be loyal, long and deep.

Pour all of that self confidence into something you’re passionate about and your potential is limitless!

Green Eyes

Green eyes are considered very sensual and beautiful. You are a warm and affectionate person, but also very mysterious at times. You are spontaneous, but patient as well.

You are a fountain of creativity, resourceful and quick-thinking in tricky situations.

You’re a great person to have around when things go in a bad direction, as you’re diplomatic and good at diffusing tension.
