Scientists Discover The Connection Between Eye Color and Personality
Eye color has been a great conversation starter for many people. It can make us look unbelievably gorgeous and appealing. But scientists have found a deeper meaning of eye color that attempts to reveal an individual’s personality type.
Researchers at Orebro University in Sweden conducted a study to find out the link between our personality and the patterns of iris. They found that eye color is affected by the same genes that form our frontal lobes. This means that there is a shared personality or behavioral type between people who have the same eye color.
You can check for your own eye color and determine whether the description is correct in the list given below:

If the amount of melanin in your body is high, your eyes will be darker. Melanin operates as an insulator for connection between the brain cells.

If you have brown eyes then you might be loyal, trustworthy, respectful, and gentle – but certainly not submissive. Chronobiology International published a study in which it was found that those with brown eyes sleep 2 hours lesser than those with light-colored eyes. They also have a hard time waking up in the morning.
