Why Are People With Blue Eyes So Special


Eyes can tell so much about a person and what they’re feeling or thinking. Science has proven that eye color does say something about your personality as well as your health, even though you may not have been aware of this. Find out below why blue eyes are special!

In 2008, researchers discovered that people with blue eyes have one common ancestor.The explanation is surprising.

Origins of Blue Eyes

Originally, all humans had brown eyes, but one European who lived around 6,000 to 10,000 years ago, developed a specific mutation that accounts for the blue iris coloration. This genetic mutation resulted in the creation of a ‘switch’ which literally turned off the ability to produce brown eyes. Pretty amazing, isn’t it? It seems that every person with blue eyes has this specific gene mutation, which means that all blue-eyed people have the same ancestor.

Blue-eyed individuals are irresistible and very lucky to have this eye color. Scientists have studied their common personality traits and a few very surprising and interesting conclusions were revealed.

Blue Eyes Are Very Attractive.

It seems that men with blue eyes are very attracted to women who share their eye color. In studies, blue-eyed men who were presented with pictures of equally-attractive women gave higher visual grades to those with blue eyes. Some suggest that this might be an evolutionary and unconscious reflex to mate with females who share their physical characteristics.

People with Blue Eyes Can Deal with Pain More Easily.

Scientists have proven that there is a correlation between eye color and pain tolerance. Studies seem to indicate that blue-eyed people tolerate pain better than all other people. For example, women with light-colored eyes experienced less physical pain when giving birth than women with dark-colored eyes. Moreover, people with blue eyes also reported feeling less depressed or anxious so it’s not just physical pain they can deal with.

They Are More Competitive.

Blue-eyed individuals tend to be more competitive.

Also, according to a recent study, scientists revealed that blue-eyed people are more likely to be alcoholics.
