Eyes are probably the most communicative of our facial features and they speak volumes even when no words are used. Their movements and expressions are vast, and scientists, doctors and behaviorists have long studied the correlation between the movements of the eyes and the workings of the brain. Some say the eyes are the windows to the soul.
But, have you ever thought about your eye color? Every year people spend their hard-earned cash on colored contacts…but to what end? Do people really form opinions of you based on your eye color? According to a 2002 survey conducted by CyberPulse, a division of Impulse Research Corporation in Los Angeles and commissioned by CIBA Vision, they do. The survey polled over 1000 women ages 16-35 in the U.S., and found that many people associate certain eye colors with specific personality traits.
Here are the three main eye color categories and their most commonly associated traits. Keep in mind, we've focused on the positive - as always :)
You think you’re so smart, don’t you? Turns out, other people think so too! 34% of people surveyed associate brown eyes with intelligence. Other qualities associated with brown eyes include trustworthiness and kindness.
Hey there sugar! 42% of those surveyed see those with blue eyes as being super-sweet, while 21% saw them as exuding sex appeal. In third place we have kindness at 10%.
Is it hot in here? Green-eyed babes are perceived as being the sexiest with a whopping 29% of those surveyed making that connection. They are also thought of as being tremendously creative (25%.)
