They say that people with blue eyes are calm, smart, youthful, and prefer serious, long-lasting relationships and do everything they can to make their partner happy. But ‘they’ say a lot, don’t they? What science says is that there are several genes involved in deciding our eye color, and they also affect other things in the body. Some studies indicate that people with blue eyes experience less physical pain, as well as less anxiety and negative thoughts. But researchers have also found that people with light-colored eyes can handle larger amounts of alcohol, and are more likely to become drunks. So, it seems like I have the genes for being a blue-eyed, happy drunk.
