Is it true that your eye color can be related to personal traits? Well a recent study by Pittsburgh University examined the correlation between eye color and pre-dispositional traits such as, alcoholism and pain tolerance.
The study demonstrated that people with higher melanin pigment are more susceptible to pain. Melanin levels are also responsible for how light or dark a person's eyes are. Scientists think that people with dark eyes are less likely to become alcoholics, because people with dark eyes don't need to drink much alcohol to feel the effects.
Melanin can also be found in the brain and one research study revealed that people with dark eyes think faster and perform better on tests than lighter eyed folks. The study also demonstrated that because light eyed people think and perform slower, they tend to think more strategically than dark eyed individuals.
Well, I'm off to grab a glass of wine for my blue-eyed self!
