What Your Eyes Can Tell about You


You may have heard the Yiddish proverb “The eyes are the mirror of the soul” a million times over, but their meaning holds eternally true.

I know, I know -my introduction sounds a little on the poetic side -but this is actually a light and fun look at what the shape, color and ‘look’ of your eyes actually say about you.

You may also use this guide to gauge the inner character of a prospective beau, by merely staring into those deep blue (or brown, green or black) eyes of his.

What the Color of My Eyes Say:

Deep Blue -This eye color means that the person is highly sexual -in a good way. Blue-eyed people are also gentle and sensitive. Meanwhile, those who have eyes with a lighter shade of blue like to enjoy flirting with the opposite sex.

Deep Green -Just like blonds with ocean-blue eyes, individuals with deep green eyes project a highly energized and inventive personality -both in practical and personal affairs. As opposed to the expression ‘green eyed with jealousy’ -this eye color means that the person is spontaneous, willful and highly intelligent.

Grey -Women with grey eyes are intelligent, with a refined yet fastidious streak. Their level of passion may not be as pronounced, but a rich imagination more than makes up for that.

Black -Raven-eyed individuals are strong-willed and living with them can be a bit on the tumultuous side, but still interesting.

What the Shape of My Eyes Say:

Unevenly-set Eyes -Individuals with this distinctive characteristic are capable of seeing things from a different perspective. They are ingenious, like to analyze and they use lateral thought processing techniques. In other words, they offer a unique insight on a lot of things.

Evenly-set Eyes -Those who have an even space between their eyes have a balanced judgment and a clear view of the world.

Closely-set Eyes -Individuals who have close-set eyes look dramatic and sultry on the outside. However, they may not have an open opinion of the world in general. They also tend to be overly dependent to others, and do not deal well with stress.

Deepset Eyes -This portrays an intense, possessive yet observant nature. Deep-set eyed people are also idealistic, creative, driven and romantic to the core. Val Kilmer and Omar Shariff have this type of eyes.

Slanted Eyes -There are two types of slanted eyes. First, if the eyes are slanting upwards (“cat” eyes), it means that they will do almost anything to get what they want. Elle McPherson and Claudia Schiffer possess these eyes.

Second, if the eyes are slanting downwards, the person may be a little self deprecating and at the mercy of others. They are hardly able to say "no".

What the “Look” of His Eyes Say:

If it’s your first time to meet a person, there are a few precautions that you need to take.

Watch out for guys who have wandering or ‘shifty’ eyes. These men are often unsettled, have inconsistent habits and unreliable.

If a guy has roving, unsteady eyes and he cannot look at you directly -this could mean that he is trying to mask his inner intentions. The other side of the spectrum is that he may just be a little shy and discouraged.

‘Sleepy’ eyes could mean that he has a strong sexual desire -although it could also be a preview to his laziness or despondency.

Remember that this is just a FUN guide that you can use to gauge an individual’s personality by looking into his or her eyes.

In order for you to get to know the real person behind those ‘sexy’ eyes -you still need to spend time with him.
