There’s an exception to every rule.
A new study by U.S. scientists finds that people with blue eyes are likely to achieve more in life, intellectually, at least, than those with brown.
Scientists who conducted the tests said brown-eyed people performed better at reaction time, but those with lighter eyes appeared to be better strategic thinkers, the Daily Mail reported. Brown-eyed people also succeeded in activities such as football and hockey, but lighter-eyed participants proved to be more succesful in activities that required skills in time structuring and planning such as golf, cross-country running and studying for exams, the scientists said.
University of Louisville professor emeritus Joanna Rowe, who conducted the tests, said the results suggested an unexplored link between eye color and academic achievement. “It is just observed, rather than explained,” she said.
“There’s no scientific answer yet.” Bedfordshire University senior psychology lecturer Dr. Tony Fallone, who has also studied eye color, believed it should be taken more seriously as an indicator of personality and ability, the Daily Mail reported.
I know it’s not celebrity gossip, but I’m bored – and I thought it was interesting. PS: I have blue eyes.
EDIT: Apparently Paris wears blue contacts. Hahaha…so does that prove my point – or just the opposite. Hmmm…
