We have all heard the cliched expression that “eyes are the window to the soul,” but now it appears that science can help back that it up!
We’ve all seen various personality tests that tell us a little about our fortune and personality like this one that says the door you choose reveals secrets about your soul, but our eyes are an actual physical part of us and can tell us even more.
Scientists at Orebro University in Sweden studied 428 subjects to see if their personalities were linked to the irises in their eye. They found that our eye color is affected by the same genes that form our frontal lobes, thus there are distinctly shared behaviors in people with similar irises.
Dr. Anthony Fallone of Edinburgh University has studied the links between eyes and personality as well. He says, “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. It seems to hold vital clues to our brain function.”
If you’re like me, my hazel eyes frequently change color depending on what I’m wearing. They can be exceptionally dark or a brighter green. That’s why I was fascinated to see attributes of each of those eye colors linked to my personality.
