According to Brazilian lyricist and novelist Paulo Coelho, Eye color reveals hidden. He stated: “The eyes are the mirror to the soul and reflect everything that seems to be hidden”. Besides, the genius of humanity Leonardo Da Vinci stated that the eyes are the windows to the mind, and expressed this idea in his portrait of Mona Lisa. Meanwhile, we always want to know more about a person just by looking at him/her, especially if our counterparts are in no hurry to talk about himself. We pay attention to some details that can characterize him – what clothes he wears, how he speaks, and what gestures he makes. Really, many believe that the color of the iris can also tell a lot about the personality, as the eye color and character have some connection between them.

From the scientific point of view, psychologists have described many aspects of human behavior based on the reaction of the eye. For example, if a person doesn’t look straight into your eyes answering your question, he almost certainly is telling you a lie.

How we describe someone’s anger? We say, “Sparks flashed in her eyes!” Or “Her eyes darkened with anger.” We can say that the eyes reflect emotions. There is one more reason to say that the eyes are a reflection of a human soul. Eye color reflects our personality. How does it work? Number and type of color pigment in the iris, in fact, determine eye color. There are three basic color categories: brown, blue, and green eyes. The most common (due to their dominant character) are brown eyes, then the eyes of all shades of blue and green are rarer shades.

There are other variants of eye color, which occur due to the various combinations of color pigments in the iris. In addition to the three eye colors, there are people with black eyes (as a rule, Africans and Asians), brown (yellow-brown), gray and green eyes (Europeans and their descendants on other continents).

Over the years, the eye colors have been associated with personal traits of their bearers. Possible link between eye color and personality of human have prompted scientists and researchers after some observations and conclusions. For example, it is clear that dark-eyed people are much more emotional, and because of their temperament are more prone to neurotic behavior than light-eyed people.

According to the research carried out over thirty years ago, there’s a link between eye color and athletic abilities. Brown-eyed people make great progress in sports, where the dominant role plays the tempo, and blue-eyed succeed in “slow” sports – such as chess or golf. This is due to the fact that the dark-eyed people reflect much more quickly than people with light eyes.

Experts pointed out that the light-eyed people are better developed in “thinking strategies”; that is why they make progress in the activities requiring planning and structuring time. A study of American scientists led them to the hypothesis that there is a direct connection between the light eye color and academic success. For example, Marie Curie, who was twice awarded the Nobel Prize, had eyes of blue color.

Held in 1998 by American psychologists study allowed them to draw conclusions about the existence of a link between the ability to obey prohibitions and eye color of infants and preschool children. It turned out that the blue-eyed male children are more cautious than brown-eyed boys. In girls, the difference was not noticed.

The most recent studies show that the gene PAX6 plays an important role in the relationship between pigmentation of the iris, and personality type. This gene, involved in both – the development of the eye and the frontal lobe of the brain, or rather that part of it, which, as experts believe, affects the personality traits such as empathy and self-control. Can this case explain the link between eye color and character? Experts believe that such link exists.

The discovery of a possible link between the color of the iris and the personal characteristics show new possible ways to explore this issue. It would be interesting for all of us.
