Eye Color and Personality Traits
That personality is affected by your personal appearance was long debated until the last couple of years.
It makes sense of course.
The body type and size you are given are going to change the way you see yourself and how others see you.
If you are drop dead good looking then it makes sense that others will smile at you more, look at you more and give you better feedback than otherwise.
Think Lucy Pinder looks sweet? Kat Dennings is sexy? Jessica Alba seems intelligent? It may be in part due to their eye color.
This, according to a recent survey conducted by CyberPulse*, a division of Impulse Research Corporation in Los Angeles, and commissioned by CIBA Vision.
The survey, which polled 1,016 women ages 16 to 35 from the United States, found that people often associate different eye colors with specific personality traits.
The survey also determined that it may be possible for an individual to influence people's perception of them simply by changing the color of their eyes with colored contact lenses.
The personality trait that respondents of the study most associated with brown eyes was intelligence with 34 percent of respondents saying this.
Brown-eyed people were also thought to be trustworthy (16 percent said this) and kind (13 percent).
Qualities they least associated with brown-eyed individuals were shyness (6 percent) and creativity (4 percent).
Other researchers have shown that brown eyed people don't anticipate being looked at as much as blue eyed people. Thus stronger eye contact with brown eyed people could have a benefit and a drawback.
The upside of strong eye contact with brown eyed people would be that they aren't as familiar with it and may be flattered.
It could make them very uncomfortable.
Be very aware to their nonverbal feedback.
Survey results show that blue-eyed individuals are most often seen as exuding sweetness (42 percent), and being sexy (21 percent) and kind (10 percent).
Blue eyed people are not seen as: shy (4 percent) or trustworthy (2 percent).
In contrast to brown eyes, blue eyes are not typically associated with being smart, as only 7 percent of respondents thought of blue-eyed people as intelligent.
More than anyone, people with blue eyes anticipate being looked at. It's easy to lose their attention because your wandering eyes will take you out of the communication in their mind. Reduced eye contact? Reduced respsect. Beware.
Twenty-nine percent of respondents associated green eyes with sexiness. Green-eyed people are also thought of as creative (25 percent) and a little devious (20 percent).
Like their blue-eyed counterparts, they are not considered trustworthy (3 percent) or shy (3 percent), but in contrast, people with green eyes are not thought of as sweet (only 4 percent of respondents associated green eyes with being sweet).
Would Most People Change Their Eye Color?
Of the respondents, 60 percent expressed an interest in changing their eye color. More respondents would change their eye color to green (27 percent) than any other color.
In second place, 26 percent of those surveyed said that they would change their eye color to amethyst, and 18 percent said that they would change their eye color to blue. After blue, turquoise came in fourth place with 13 percent opting for that color, followed by gray (7 percent), honey (5 percent) and brown (4 percent).
It's not the only trait that alters our personality but eye color is one characteristic that shifts how people treat you and that changes your world view shifting your personality traits.
If you want more control over what happens in every communication, there is a way for you to improve your reading body language skills.
