We’ve all heard the saying: “You can tell a lot about a person by the way they dress.” Evidently, the same holds true for their eye color as well.
Right or wrong, we live in a world of first impressions. People make snap judgments about other people based on their posture, their smile, their attire, and even their eye color. Based on a survey of U.S. women between the ages of 16 and 35, people associate different eye colors to personality traits such as intelligence, trustworthiness, kindness and, yes, even sexiness.
Does the color of a person’s eyes actually make them more intelligent, trust-worthy or kind? That is doubtful. However, perceptions are pretty powerful, and in a world where you can essentially choose the eye-color of your choice, it can be useful to understand the sub-conscious assumptions people make based on eye color.
Based on the results of this survey, here are some of the traits people associate with various eye colors:
Other common traits of people with blue eyes, according to the study, are sexiness (21 percent) and kindness (10 percent).
Brown – The personality trait most associated with brown eyes is intelligence. Besides intelligence (34 percent), brown eyes also convey trustworthiness (16 percent) and kindness (13 percent), said respondents.
Green – If sexiness is what you’re after, green eyes are the way to go. Twenty-nine percent of the women who responded said they linked green eyes with sexiness-more than any other color. Other popular traits included creativity (25 percent) and deviousness (20 percent).
Thanks to advancements is the eyecare and eyewear industry, people can change their eye color about as easily as they can choose which shirt to wear. Whether you want a subtle change or color enhancement, or a dramatic color overhaul, the power and choice is yours.
Based on this study, 60 percent of the respondents said they’d like to change the color of their eyes, with 27 percent choosing green. Then came amethyst (26 percent) and blue (18 percent). Turquoise, gray, honey and brown were the next choices, in that order.
Does that mean more people would rather be viewed as sexy than intelligent? Perhaps.
