Do you know the reality behind your eyes colour? Usually, most of us answer its ‘genetic.’ However, this is partially true.
According to the University of Delaware, “Eye colour is not an example of a simple genetic trait. Instead, the eye colour has caused by the variation of different genes and the interaction between the genes. It makes the formation of eye colour possible. For example, the two blue-eyed parents to have brown-eyed children.”
You must note one thing; here we are referring to the colour of the iris, not to the whites of the eyes. Every part of your body can reveal something about your personality. Let’s check what your eyes say about your nature.
Here we have listed down five things that your eye colour can reveal about your health and personality.
Light Colour Eyes
1. You Are Much Competitive:
In the study of 336 persons, Australian researchers have surveyed people of white European with the aim of studying personality traits. The assessment of the survey included the statements like ‘I see myself as someone who is considerate and kind to almost everyone,’ I make people feel at ease, and other words like friendliness, generosity, and empathy.
The researchers analysed that the people with light colour eyes like bright green, light blue are more competitive and less agreeable.
2. Less Development of Vitiligo:
Vitiligo is a disease in which specific cells of your skin lose pigment cells. The vitiligo’s symptoms include the patchy or depigmented area of the skin that cover your hair, retina and mucous membranes.
In the study by the scientists of the University of Colorado school of medicine, the researchers analysed that 27% of 3000 people have diagnosed with vitiligo with light blue or grey eyes. Moreover, also a link exists between vitiligo and other diseases like type 1 diabetes, lupus, and thyroid disease.
Dark Colour Eyes:
Now we come to the results analysed by scientists for dark colour eyes.
1. You Drink Less Than Others:
An ophthalmologist and the board member of the American Optometric Association, Christopher Quinn says that “an undeniable conclusion of the study is that the people with light iris drink more.”
The study about which he speaks is a Georgia State University survey of 12000 of men and women. In the study, the researchers analysed that ‘there is a real relation between eye colour and alcohol consumption.’
From the study, the researchers noted that the relationship between eye colour and alcohol consumption enroots from ‘greater sensitivity to alcohol and some medications in dark-eyed individuals. Moreover, the connections between the emotional and arousal centres of the brain and eye colour.
2. You Are More Trustworthy Than Others:
In the study published in the journal named ‘PLOS ONE’, the participants have asked 238 volunteers to rate the person’s trustworthiness on the base of his or her eye colour. The authors note that’ Eye colour had a significant effect.’ However, the authors also stated that ‘they were a bit less certain whether the other facial features like chin, jaw, and brow also influenced the results.’
Then the researchers concluded that “It was not brown eye colour per so that it caused the stronger perception of trustworthiness in dark colour eyes people but rather the facial features associated with person’s brown eyes.”
The facial features include larger eyes, bigger mouths, broader chins. According to the authors, these features also corrected with the trustworthiness of a person. In the results, the researchers conclude that the people with dark colour eyes are more trustworthy than people with light colour eyes.
3. You Have Healthier And Beautiful Eyes:
As per the study published in Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, the people with light- colour eyes develop macular degeneration twice than the people with dark-colour eyes. It is the condition which results in blurred or no vision in the centre of the visual field. It means that people with dark colour eyes have healthier and beautiful eyes.
Ophthalmologists say that its reason is that dark colour iris block U.V light more effectively than the light colour iris. We all know that U.V light is the risk factor for the development of several eye-related problems. It may also lead to worse vision while ageing.
