Now, let’s get down to business. What is the meaning behind each different eye color? Let’s start with black:
The owners of black eyes are passionate and sensitive souls. Love and partnership are of paramount importance for them but they also tend to get very jealous. When they want something, they chase after it relentlessly, not giving up until they have it. Strong-willed and shrewd, they always find the quickest path to their goals. Black-eyed people are highly individualistic and self-reliant and, as a result, prefer to work alone.
Their independent nature makes it very hard for other people to approach them. In order to become their friend, one must prove worthy of their trust, and demonstrate an equally strong and determined personality. However, if you manage to impress them and get them to open up to you, you will earn yourself a true and life-long friend, who will always have your back.
Brown-eyed people are quiet and calm. You can count on them for everything – they are always ready to help, either directly, or by sharing good advice. Organized, determined, goal-oriented and balanced, they are highly valued by colleagues and personal relations alike. Their qualities help them find the perfect balance between work, family and social life. The owners of brown eyes achieve their golas through patience and careful planning. Many of them are intellectuals, scientists and politicians.
Life’s small pleasures – compliments, kind gestures, brief beautiful moments – affect these people very strongly. They enjoy pampering themselves and others, and look for partners who are mindful of their sensitivity, and equally good enjoying life. If you embark on a relationship with a brown-eyed person, expect an abundance of spontaneous travels and surprise gifts!
Blue eyes are associated with artistic talent, and many of their owners have creative occupations. They often choose careers as actors, painters or musicians. Outgoing and imaginative, they easily charm and befriend people. This makes them ideal for jobs with a strong focus on communication. They are noble and like making generous gestures towards their fellow human beings. Blue-eyed men and women are very open and direct, and usually have a strong sense of humor. Sometimes they don’t take things very seriously, which can be a good thing – it helps them avoid stressful situations.
People with blue eyes are intelligent, sensitive and spirited. Cheerful and attractive, they can usually be spotted having fun in large, loud groups.
Green is the rarest eye color, and the people who posses it are truly exceptional. Just like Angelina Jolie, they are talented and really stand out from the crowd. Intelligent and shrewd, they can easily overcome any obstacle on their course. They have a strong character and carefully choose the people they want to communicate with. Usually they only admire and respect successful individuals who share their values. Their unique green gaze makes them incredibly attractive to the opposite sex but they are usually rather cold and reserved. This is their way of protecting themselves from unwanted advances.
Green-eyed people are natural leaders, both at home and at the workplace. Although they are romantic souls who long for love, they find it extremely difficult to find a partner because they are incredibly demanding and want only the very best. Some think this is a sign of arrogance but this is not the case – people with green eyes just know their own value and can’t settle for anything less than their ideal.
Those who own grey eyes are usually very attractive and spirited. In most cases this is accompanied with a great sense of humor which makes them incredibly popular. They are gregarious and love making new acquaintances but very few of them ever become their real friends. Grey stands for security – both physical and financial. These people usually pursue a life of wealth and leisure.
They fall in and out of love in the drop of a hat, rarely remaining with one partner for long. If you have managed to forge a lengthly relationship with a grey-eyed partner – consider yourself incredibly special!
People with multicolored eyes have a gentle, kind heart and know how to have fun! In spite of this, they are often prone to depression. They make great spouses, parents and friends, and are incredibly energetic, favoring dynamic jobs with lots of traveling. They can be impulsive, which often results in bouts of creativity – many artists or great journalists have multicolored eyes. On the other hand, although they are honest and caring, their unpredictable nature makes it very difficult to fully trust them.
Their best qualities – honesty and wanting to please others – are also their weakest spot, as it leaves them vulnerable to abuse from ill-meaning individuals.
