But did you know that even the color of your eyes can tell a lot about you? We’ve broken down what eye color says about an individual, from mysterious dark brown/black eyes to perky, bright blue eyes. You’ll be amazed what you can find out about yourself! Find your eye color below and tell us what you think: is it true for you, or is it completely off?


Brown Eyes

Adjectives for brown eyes: Creative, Independent, Strong, Courageous

The most common eye colors found in individuals across the world is brown. Brown is said to be a color that is associated with the earth, which means people with brown eyes tend to be close with nature and aren’t too attached to material goods. This incredibly bold and rich color of eyes, aside from being mysterious and gorgeous, is also a symbol of simplicity. People with brown eyes tend to be strong in the creativity department and have a positive outlook on life. While these individuals tend to be on the independent side, they make great lovers that are polite and caring- the type of people you always go to with your problems, knowing they’ll always be willing to lend a hand. Always ready and willing to meet new people, brown-eyed people are confident yet may have trouble when it comes to expressing emotions and feelings. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t completely committed in a relationship and can learn to express their innermost thoughts after getting to know the person.


Hazel Eyes

If you could only pick one word to describe hazel eyes, it would have to be breathtaking. The beautiful blend of green and brown makes for a dazzling appearance that many people are drawn to. Individuals with green eyes are known for their incredibly spontaneous attitudes. They are always up for a challenge and always willing to try new things. They LOVE to have fun- maybe too much- and can get bored with things very easily. That’s why sometimes it’s rather hard for hazel-eyed people to stay in a relationship: they need to be entertained, and the second they get bored, they’ll leave. But if they’ve found ‘THE ONE’, they are very trustworthy and have a sensual loving that can’t be ignored. While a hazel-eyed person is known for having such a fun-loving attitude and overall great personality, they also tend to have a bit of an anger problem and can be ticked off easily. But if you can handle them at their worst, you will love them at their best.

They never set out to hurt anyone, although they can be hurt rather easily thanks to their fragile nature. A green-eyed person will put devotion and passion into anything they do, whether it’s a relationship or a business venture. People with grey eyes are said to be the best lovers, as they take love and relationships incredibly seriously and will do anything to make their partner happy, being incredibly loyal and putting 110% into the relationship.

People with green-eyes are said to be some of the most intelligent people in the world, and they have an urge and passion to live life to the very fullest. However, when it comes to green eyes, it’s not all cookies and cupcakes. Those with green eyes tend to have a very bad jealousy streak and can get jealous in a matter of seconds, even over the most simplest things. But when you stack up the amount of positives with negatives, it’s clear there are few more positive aspects of a green-eyed person then there is negatives.


Black Eyes

Adjectives for black eyes: Mysterious, Secretive, Sensual

Did you know that ‘true’ black eyes are one of the rarest eye colors in the world? In fact, the majority of the time you see someone with ‘black’ eyes, you’re actually seeing someone with dark brown eyes. Either way, this shockingly deep and mysterious color is bold and beautiful and can draw you in instantly. Those with dark brown or ‘black’ eyes have a tendency to be secretive and hesitant to meet new people. However, when they make friendships or enter into a relationship, they are extremely loyal and trustworthy. Black eyes are also associated with mystery and intuition, and those with black eyes are said to be some of the most passionate individuals out there; they’ll give everything they have to whatever they are doing. That being said, people with black eyes have a very optimistic attitude and aren’t afraid to show people what they are made of.


Blue Eyes

Adjectives for blue eyes: Energetic, Assertive, Lively, Kind

Blue eyes, alongside brown eyes, are another one of the most common eye colors in the world- they are also the most sought after eye color as well, for a majority of reasons. We’ll start off by remarking on how vibrant and fresh blue eyes are. They’re bright and perky, making them an instant eye-catcher that is nice and beautiful. People with blue eyes are known for their very peaceful attitudes and are known to always want to make those around them happy- which, of course, is another reason why people gravitate towards people with this eye color. Blue-eyed people are also full of life and love to make special, long-lasting relationships with everyone they love, from friendships to family and relationships. Their energetic personalities are always uplifting, upbeat, and happy, and you can always find yourself having a fun time with a blue-eyed person.

It’s fascinating to learn about what eye colors mean about an individual. I bet you didn’t know that green eyes have a jealous tendency or that grey eyes are a symbol of leadership, did you?

    Hi, This helps a little bit. You see I am always on my phone. I have brown eyes,but I noticed that they have gotten so dark that when I look in my reflection in the mirror(with the light on) I can hardly see my pupil all I can see are the lines on my iris but I can barely see those! My mom says it’s from straining my eyes from being on my phone a lot. Also the adjectives for people with brown eyes doesn’t really describe me, I argue a lot and have many hard times controlling my thoughts and they sometimes go violent and I get agitated fairly quickly! What do you think of it’s meaning? P’s my name’s not Tea, it’s for security/safety purposes.

      You may notice that your eyes will change color or shade for a variety of reasons. In the future, check your eye color throughout the day, or after certain meals, or even if you feel strong emotions. There are many reasons that cause these changes. If you find that eye color articles are not fully accurate, then you may have reason to continue looking inward. Perhaps you can work on becoming violent by focusing your mind on thoughts of love, kindness, and compassion. Have a great day, P!

    My eyes are almost black. They are very, very dark brown. You can’t even see my pupil, even up close. People say they are kind of creepy, but I always get a luck out of that?

      Many moves have many different character traits for both good and bad characters. For the next ten movies that you watch, it may be beneficial to write down their eye and hair color. Perhaps you can determine if you are biased in your understandings. Feel free to share your insights in the future. Have a great day!

      It is certainly possible that your eye change color due to circumstances. This is common with eyes. Many times emotion, diet, exercise, and stress can influence eye color. If you are interested in watching these changes, then monitor your eyes as the days go by. Keep a journal if you wish. Whatever you do, be mindful as you move forward.

      Allow your mind to mix and match the descriptions of eye colors. Your eyes are only one aspect of how people view you. If you want to make a list of things that you think that your eyes, then it would be wise to do so. Take this time to do some introspection and determine what you think your eyes mean. Enjoy life and remain positive!

      If you are concerned about the article saying that have no emotion, then I would like to paste an excerpt from the article regarding dark brown eyes for you to read:
      Those with dark brown or ‘black’ eyes have a tendency to be secretive and hesitant to meet new people. However, when they make friendships or enter into a relationship, they are extremely loyal and trustworthy. Black eyes are also associated with mystery and intuition, and those with black eyes are said to be some of the most passionate individuals out there; they’ll give everything they have to whatever they are doing.

      Eye color changes for everyone. The changes can be due to emotions, diet, sunlight, and any manner of influences. If you ever notice your eye color is changing, then take the time to notice what may be influencing the changes. Often times, you will notice people’s eye color change due to emotional changes during conversations. It is likely that your eyes react in the same way, so feel free to ask people what color your eyes are if you find that you are having strong feelings.

      Everyone’s eyes change due to various reasons. Sometimes weather influences those changes. Emotions, diet, exercise, and social influences can all have an impact on the color of your eyes. If you notice people’s eye color change around you, then take a look at what is going on around you. This will help you to better understand and read people who are in your life.

      No one’s irises are completely black. When eyes are called black, it means that they are extremely dark brown. If your iris color matches the color of your pupil, then you may want to look further into that.
