But regardless, all the same, that fascination has been there. Many of my stories feature characters who have mystical magical eye powers, especially relating to change of eye color. And for fun, I decided I would look up today some of the traits for hazel eyes. (I had one in particular I was looking for, though I unfortunately couldn't find it.)
Here's what I found.
You are all in one and one in all. You are strong, sensitive, and secretive, and possess immense physical strength and stamina. You tend to go for things when the time is right-thanks to your ‘in the moment nature’.
PEOPLE WITH HAZEL EYES ARE SPONTANEOUS AND WILL RARELY BACK DOWN FROM A CHALLENGE. IF THERE IS MORE GREEN MIXED INTO YOUR EYES, YOU LIKE TO BE MISCHIEVOUS. IF YOU HAVE MORE BROWN MIXED IN, YOU ARE MORE APPROACHABLE TO OTHER PEOPLE. HAZEL EYES ARE SPECIAL BECAUSE THEY SEEM TO CHANGE COLOR DEPENDING ON YOUR MOOD.
THIS SHADE IS UNCOMMON, SO PEOPLE WITH HAZEL EYES ARE TOLD FROM A YOUNG AGE THAT THEY ARE DIFFERENT AND UNIQUE. AS SUCH, THOSE WITH HAZEL EYES TEND TO BE INDEPENDENT, CONFIDENT, AND SPONTANEOUS. THE AMOUNT OF MELANIN IN THE EYE VARIES FROM PERSON TO PERSON, SO YOU CAN NEVER PIN DOWN THEIR PERSONALITY, THOUGH A COMMON THEME SEEMS TO BE A BALANCED PERSONALITY THAT CAN SOMETIMES BE MYSTERIOUS TO READ. DR. MATTHEW LEACH OF THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA CLAIMS THAT PEOPLE WITH HAZEL EYES MIGHT HAVE SUCH MIXED COLORS IN THEIR EYES DUE TO MATERIALS FROM THE BLOODSTREAM THAT WERE BROKEN DOWN BECAUSE OF LIVER IMBALANCE. AS SUCH, PEOPLE WITH HAZEL EYES MIGHT BE MORE PRONE TO DIGESTIVE ISSUES.
There was none for hazel. I proudly declared I was hazel, but noted there was none available--just brown, green, and blue if I recall correctly. (Memory's a bit hazy as to the specifics.) I protested, but my teacher just kind-of wrote my protests off: "Oh, just stick it here then". But I couldn't, because I knew that wasn't my eye color; I was hazel, not whatever eye color she had suggested. So I tried to stick it in-between two others, even though there was no viable way to make it stay there and I knew it was going to fall out and therefore not be displayed, when we were also writing our names on these as to let everyone know. And by having my name be in none...I had essentially fallen off.
I swear that memory is very vivid to me as one of the first signs I ever had of just how different I was, but while it may have been an independent thing to do, it sure wasn't done with confidence. Also, while I very strongly desire independence, I'm...also very much without it. I might be what you call an "independent personality", but while I have the personality I sure don't have the lifestyle. I rely on others. I don't make nearly as much effort as I should to break that, either.
And then there's confidence. I tend to put up a strong front of confidence. I can fake it. But while I can appear confident at times, even arrogant, if I feel like I know what I'm doing at least...it doesn't last. I just collapse, because I have nothing backing me up.
I am pretty spontaneous though. And it's ridiculously hard to pin my personality down--heck, I'm the person with the highest chance of doing it for me, and I haven't done so, so it'd be next-to-impossible for someone else to really nail me down. I do try to balance things out, though my balance can be...a bit...weird. Also off. Also destructive. Which is counterintuitive to what you think of when you think of balance, but actually I think that describes my balance pretty well:
I've previously said just how imbalanced my life has been. How unbalanced I am. How much I lack balance. But I actually think that maybe, just maybe, I do have a heightened sense of balance--just, destructive balance. Balance which destroys. Balance which is negative, and maybe considered "bad"...but still an actual BALANCE, not truly the previous definitions of imbalanced. There's a weird equilibrium in my life, it's just...not a healthy equilibrium.
Also, funnily enough. Yes. I do have quite bad digestive issues. That's...not something I share with people. For good reason; it's a liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittle bit TMI. (I mean do you honestly want to hear about how much trouble my digestive track gives me? It's not something you really want to hear about, is it? So I don't mention it, but it exists.) Aside from a bottomless pit of a stomach, there's also what happens to the food. Or doesn't happen.
I do also tend to be a bit mysterious, though that's not really my fault, just something which can't be helped. I am ridiculously open about all aspects of me. It's just that there's so many aspects, SO many complexities, that it's difficult to wrap your head around them all. I am a complicated person. I also suck at explaining things, and while I might explain everything about one thing, many other things might not be so obvious. All the same, let's move on.
ADJECTIVES FOR HAZEL EYES: COURAGEOUS, INDEPENDENT, SENSITIVE, TEMPERAMENTAL
IF YOU COULD ONLY PICK ONE WORD TO DESCRIBE HAZEL EYES, IT WOULD HAVE TO BE BREATHTAKING.
INDIVIDUALS WITH GREEN(hazel?) EYES ARE KNOWN FOR THEIR INCREDIBLY SPONTANEOUS ATTITUDES. THEY ARE ALWAYS UP FOR A CHALLENGE AND ALWAYS WILLING TO TRY NEW THINGS. THEY LOVE TO HAVE FUN- MAYBE TOO MUCH- AND CAN GET BORED WITH THINGS VERY EASILY.
THAT’S WHY SOMETIMES IT’S RATHER HARD FOR HAZEL-EYED PEOPLE TO STAY IN A RELATIONSHIP: THEY NEED TO BE ENTERTAINED, AND THE SECOND THEY GET BORED, THEY’LL LEAVE. BUT IF THEY’VE FOUND ‘THE ONE’, THEY ARE VERY TRUSTWORTHY AND HAVE A SENSUAL LOVING THAT CAN’T BE IGNORED.
WHILE A HAZEL-EYED PERSON IS KNOWN FOR HAVING SUCH A FUN-LOVING ATTITUDE AND OVERALL GREAT PERSONALITY, THEY ALSO TEND TO HAVE A BIT OF AN ANGER PROBLEM AND CAN BE TICKED OFF EASILY. BUT IF YOU CAN HANDLE THEM AT THEIR WORST, YOU WILL LOVE THEM AT THEIR BEST.
The closest I've ever had to being courageous is when I decided to come out and tell people I am a woman. That was difficult to do. I mean. It was a large thing to do. That one taking the plunge time was greater than any other time I have taken a risk. But risk-taking and courage aren't synonyms to me. I take risks; I don't display courage. It's just not a defining trait of mine. Independence I already covered. Sensitive I suppose, since I am ridiculously emotionally frail, and temperamental, definitely.
I have had hazel eyes described as breathtaking before, with them being seen as neat and cool and looking nice, so that I suppose is true enough. I do love to try new things (I'm trying out the blockquote feature on today's blog for instance!), and fun is basically what I do all day even to my detriment (and sadly, sometimes others). I do get bored with things easily, so there's that.
Also, I do have trouble with relationships, but that section seems inaccurate. I don't leave others because I'm bored; I leave others because I just...drift away and the pain becomes too much. (Okay so maybe it applies a little.) I do tend to think of myself as being preeeeetty trustworthy though, except when it comes to making promises (which I suck at keeping)--I'm loyal and do my best to fulfill my vows.
I do tend to have a temper, and it's easy to tick me off, but only on certain select subjects. I do try to have a fun-loving attitude, but YMMV on whether I actually succeed at that endeavor. Still, all the same, let's continue and see what else can be gleaned from articles on hazel eyes.
ELEGANT IS THE FIRST WORD THAT IS ASSOCIATED WITH PEOPLE WITH HAZEL EYES. THEY ARE VERY SPONTANEOUS, FUN-LOVING AND ALWAYS UP FOR AN ADVENTURE AT POINT OF TIME.
GOING WITH THE FLOW AND ADAPTING EASILY TO ANY SITUATION IS DEFINITELY THEIR FORTE. THEY ARE BRAVE AND COURAGEOUS PEOPLE WHO ENCOURAGE DIVERSITY AND THEY TEND TO GET BORED OF MONOTONY VERY EASILY. THEY LOVE TO TRY NEW THINGS.
I also love adventure, and going with the flow is my defining style, with "sure, why not" being my call. (I also try new things constantly.) I do adapt pretty easily to most situations, though stress can keep that from happening sometimes. I do like things diverse, which is one reason among many others my friends are across the globe covering every spectrum possible, and my life is anything other than monotonous.
So I suppose this is accurate enough? Let's dig further.
ELEGANT, SPONTANEOUS, ADVENTUROUS, GOES WITH THE FLOW, MISCHIEVOUS, TEMPERAMENTAL, FUN-LOVING, SENSUAL, OPINIONATED
THEY LOVE TAKING RISKS
IT IS COMMON FOR HAZEL-EYED PEOPLE TO BE CHANCE-TAKERS IN GENERAL, SEEKING THRILL AND ADVENTURE ABOVE ALL ELSE. ALTHOUGH NOT APPLICABLE TO ALL PEOPLE WITH HAZEL EYES, A MAJORITY OF THEM ARE KNOWN TO BE REALLY PASSIONATE ABOUT WHAT THEY DO, ALMOST TO THE POINT OF CHALLENGING THEMSELVES. THEY ALSO TEND NOT TO HESITATE MUCH WHEN TRYING NEW THINGS, DUE TO THEIR THRILL-SEEKING NATURE.
THEY ARE SENSITIVE
ANOTHER WELL-KNOWN CHARACTERISTIC OF HAZEL-EYED PEOPLE IS THEIR SENSITIVE NATURE. REGARDLESS OF HOW OUTGOING OR FRIENDLY THEY MAY BE, PEOPLE WITH HAZEL EYES ALSO POSSESS QUITE A SOFT AND SENSITIVE SIDE THAT EXPOSES THEM TO A FAIR SHARE OF EMOTIONAL DAMAGE. SENSITIVE NOT ONLY TO THINGS BUT ALSO TO PEOPLE AROUND THEM, HAZEL-EYED PEOPLE FIND IT VERY HARD TO LET THINGS GO FOR SOME REASON, WHICH IN TURN MAKES THEM HANDLE THINGS WITH EXTRA CARE.
THEY ARE OUTGOING AND IMPULSIVE
ON AVERAGE, PEOPLE WITH HAZEL EYES ARE GREAT AT PARTIES AND SOCIAL GATHERINGS DUE TO THEIR LIGHT-HEARTED NATURE BUT ALSO DUE TO THEIR FRIENDLY PERSONALITY. THEY ALSO HAVE A VERY POSITIVE VIEW ON THE WORLD AND THE PEOPLE AROUND THEM, DESPITE BEING QUITE SENSITIVE ABOUT THE THINGS THAT SURROUND THEM. INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH, IT APPEARS THAT HAZEL-EYED PEOPLE WITH A GREATER DEGREE OF GREEN COLORING ARE LESS FRIENDLY THAN HAZEL-EYED PEOPLE WITH DARKER COLORING.
...Except, online I'm the opposite. I am incredibly social online, even though in real life I'm not. Though, regardless, I do hold a positive view of the world. I am incredibly cynical and pessimistic, yet all the same I still hold everyone and everything in incredibly high regards which is quite the accomplishment given what I live through.
PEOPLE WITH HAZEL EYES ARE SHORT-TEMPERED
FOR WHATEVER REASON, PEOPLE WITH HAZEL EYES ARE DIFFICULT TO HANDLE WHENEVER THEY’RE HAVING AN ‘OFF’ DAY, OR WHEN THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY TROUBLED BY SOMETHING. THEY TEND TO LASH OUT ON THE WORLD AND THE PEOPLE CLOSE TO THEM MUCH EASIER THAN BLUE-EYED PEOPLE FOR EXAMPLE. WE ALREADY TALKED ABOUT HOW SENSITIVE THEY ARE AND IT APPEARS THAT ANGER IS JUST THE OTHER SIDE OF THEIR SENSITIVE COIN.
I tend to also get snappy when something is bothering me, though that's a real-life thing rather than an internet thing. I will in fact lash out at people, especially when something dear to me has been compromised. (For instance, I take incredibly poorly to being called a liar.)
THEY FORM UNUSUAL RELATIONSHIPS
IT APPEARS THAT HAZEL-EYED PEOPLE TEND TO FORM SHORT-LIVED RELATIONSHIPS. THE MAIN REASON FOR THIS IS BECAUSE OF HOW EASILY BORED THEY TEND TO BE, BUT ALSO BECAUSE OF THEIR SENSITIVE NATURE. COMBINE THIS WITH THEIR SHORT-TEMPERED AND AT THE SAME TIME IMPULSIVE CHARACTER, AND YOU FIND OUT WHY MOST HAZEL-EYED PEOPLE HAVE DIFFICULTIES MAINTAINING NORMAL RELATIONSHIPS.
And it's largely my fault for not maintaining a much stronger connection. I get...distracted. I focus elsewhere, and with so many friends sometimes...people just. slip through the cracks. It sounds terrible, but it's the truth as much as I wish it wasn't. I just am impulsive, so. I just, do what I feel like, and sometimes...what I feel like leaves people out albeit entirely accidentally.
MANY HAZEL-EYED PEOPLE ARE BEAUTIFUL
COMPARED TO PEOPLE WITH BROWN EYES FOR EXAMPLE, HAZEL-EYED PEOPLE TEND TO BE MORE ATTRACTIVE ON AVERAGE.
Often, I also get comments to the effect of: "you have a beautiful face", "with makeup you'll make a fine lady" (badly paraphrased that one but basically the idea is that it'd be easy to have just basic beauty makeup bring out my feminine features more), the like. Even before I knew I was trans, I was told I was handsome. So apparently, this is true. Not something I'd be the best judge of given my own self-hatred, but if they say so, then I'll trust their word, making this be accurate.
THEY ARE RESTLESS WHEN PRESSURED
ON AVERAGE, PEOPLE WITH HAZEL EYES TEND TO BE RESTLESS UNDER PRESSURE, MORE SO THAN PEOPLE WITH BLUE EYES FOR EXAMPLE. THIS BEING SAID, THERE ARE PLENTY OF HAZEL-EYED PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO ARE QUITE COMPOSED AND CALM, EVEN THOUGH THERE AREN’T THAT MANY OF THEM. IT ISN’T CLEAR WHAT EXACTLY CAUSES PEOPLE WITH HAZEL EYES TO BE RESTLESS BY DEFAULT, ALTHOUGH SOME MAY SUGGEST THAT IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH HOW RARE THEY ARE IN SOCIETY.
It could be said I'm freaked out by everything and by nothing--everything, because I constantly worry; nothing, because by constantly worrying I have "real" worries on almost nothing. But I still don't handle pressure well when I feel it's actually...pressure.
I'm composed and calm, yes. I also don't take pressure well and am restless. The article seemed to think those two were somehow contradictions, but in actuality, they're really not! I mean it, I'm both, often at the same time. When I freak out, I don't show it often but I do freak out and it happens a lot.
THEY ARE SHARP AND WITTY
PEOPLE WITH HAZEL EYES ARE ALSO KNOWN FOR THEIR SPONTANEITY AND QUICK WITS. THIS IS PARTLY DUE TO THEIR OUTGOING PERSONALITY, BUT ALSO DUE TO THEIR SENSITIVE NATURE WHICH DICTATES THAT THEY AVOID DRAWN-OUT CONFLICTS. THIS ALLOWS THEM TO DEVELOP QUICK WITS FROM AN EARLY AGE, A SHARPNESS THAT PROTECTS THEM NOT ONLY FROM THE PEOPLE AROUND THEM, BUT ALSO FROM THEMSELVES. WE SHOULD POINT OUT, HOWEVER, THAT NOT ALL HAZEL-EYED PEOPLE SHARE THESE CHARACTERISTICS, JUST A BIG NUMBER OF THEM.
My characters tend to be snarky, because I am snarky. I tend to be good at writing webcomics because I make good humor. (Now, keeping those webcomics going, that's another matter altogether, but that's not the fault of the writing running dry, as much as it is because of me.)
Most of my blog readers come from two sites where I love to have exchanges. I tend to make a lot of bad jokes, bad humor, some puns here and there, basically have a huge load of fun. I love sarcasm, I love banter, I love series of jokes, I love to give quirky responses, to entertain, to make people laugh.
Their reasons, probably mostly off, aside from it being self-defense, especially from myself, but that sharp tongue of mine is one of my main specialties overall.
PEOPLE WITH HAZEL EYES ARE MISCHIEVOUS
AS CHILDREN, PEOPLE WITH HAZEL EYES ARE KNOWN TO GET INTO A LOT OF TROUBLE BUT ALSO TO GET OUT OF THEM WITH EASE. NOT ALL OF THEM ARE LIKE THAT, OF COURSE, BUT YOU WOULD BE SURPRISED HOW MANY HAZEL-EYED CHILDREN GET AWAY WITH NAUGHTY BEHAVIOR. TO SOME EXTENT, THIS IS ALSO ONE OF THE REASONS WHY HAZEL-EYED PEOPLE GROW UP TO BE SHARP AND WITTY, MAYBE THEY DEVELOP THESE TRAITS EARLY IN LIFE.
THEY WILL LEAD IF ALLOWED TO
ANOTHER INTERESTING CHARACTERISTIC OF HAZEL-EYED PEOPLE IS THAT THEY’LL LEAD IF GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY. UNLESS PUT UNDER TREMENDOUS AMONG OF PRESSURE, HAZEL-EYED PEOPLE, ALTHOUGH SENSITIVE ABOUT THEIR SURROUNDINGS, WILL OFTEN TAKE CHARGE IS ALLOWED TO DO SO. THIS BEING SAID, IT IS QUITE OFTEN THAT THEY GET INTO A CONFRONTATION WHICH IN TURN, LEADS TO THEM TRIGGERING THEIR SENSITIVE SIDE.
...Otherwise, HECK NO, I hate leading. Too much pressure. Too many decisions.
HAZEL-EYED PEOPLE ARE NARCISSISTIC
WHILE MOST PEOPLE WITH HAZEL EYES WILL DEVELOP AN OUTGOING PERSONALITY DUE TO ALWAYS BEING COMPLIMENTED, THERE ARE SOME WHO DEVELOP QUITE A NARCISSISTIC ONE FOR THE EXACT SAME REASONS. NEVERTHELESS, PEOPLE WILL OFTEN BE PLEASED TO INTERACT WITH HAZEL-EYED PEOPLE, ON AVERAGE AT LEAST. THIS MIGHT HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH THEIR ABILITY TO BE ELEGANT AT ALL TIMES, BUT ALSO THANKS TO THEIR OUTGOING PERSONALITY.
I tend to be quite selfish. I also tend to overall be pleasant to be around--but I still hold that selfishness.
THEY ARE UNPREDICTABLE
WE AREN’T REALLY SURE IF HAZEL-EYED PEOPLE ARE OFTEN UNPREDICTABLE DUE TO THEIR QUICK WITS OR WHETHER IT IS A RESULT OF THEIR SENSITIVE, ELUSIVE NATURE. IN GENERAL, YOU WOULD DO WELL NOT TO ASSUME TOO MUCH OF THEM, BECAUSE THEY’LL OFTEN FIND A WAY TO CATCH YOU OFF-GUARD BY DOING THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF WHAT WAS EXPECTED OF THEM. FOR INSTANCE, WE OFTEN SEE HAZEL-EYED SINGERS AND ACTORS GET INTO DUBIOUS ARRANGEMENTS OR FRUITLESS CONTRACT AGREEMENTS. SOME WOULD CALL HAZEL-EYED PEOPLE STUBBORN TO SOME EXTENT AND THEY WOULDN’T BE FAR OFF.
I do often catch people off-guard. It's a bit of a specialty of mine, in fact. It's just that I see things a certain way--differently than most see them. So I can react differently than others do. That was an interesting enough insight, but let's see some more.
HAZEL EYES CONTAIN LOWER LEVELS OF MELANIN THAN BLUE EYES.THIS MAY PUT THEM AT RISK OF DEVELOPING PARTICULAR TYPES OF OCULAR CANCERS, SUCH AS INTRA-OCULAR MELANOMA. IF YOU HAVE HAZEL COLORED EYES, IT IS BEST TO WEAR SUNGLASSES WITH STRONG UV PROTECTION. YOU SHOULD ALSO VISIT AN EYE DOCTOR REGULARLY ESPECIALLY FOR UNUSUAL EYE COLOR CHANGES WHICH MAY BE DUE TO MEDICAL CONDITIONS LIKE OCULAR GLAUCOMA OR GLAUCOMA DEGRADATION.
Let's continue. This next one is long, too, so breaking it up as well.
IT HAS THE COMPASSION AND HEALING QUALITIES OF GREEN, FLUIDITY AND SENSITIVITY OF GREY, THE INDEPENDENCE AND INNER STRENGTH OF BROWN AND LAST BUT NOT THE LEAST IT HAS THE INTENSE VITALITY OF THE BLUE.
FRIENDLY, OUTGOING AND IMPULSIVE
HAZEL EYED ARE GENERALLY THE CENTER OF ALL FUN. LIGHT HEARTED PEOPLE WHO LOVE TO MINGLE AROUND AND MAKE NEW FRIENDS AND ENJOY LIFE IN THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY. THEY HOLD A VERY POSITIVE APPROACH TOWARDS LIFE AND PEOPLE. HOWEVER IF THE PROPORTION OF BROWN IS HIGHER IN THE EYES, THEN SUCH PEOPLE ARE SAID TO BE MORE APPROACHABLE. THE ONES WITH GREATER DEGREE OF GREEN MIX ARE MISCHIEVOUS. AS IN ALL THEY HOLD A VERY FRIENDLY AND OUTGOING BEHAVIOR. ALSO AT TIMES, THEY TEND TO BE LITTLE IMPULSIVE. THEY ARE THE COURAGEOUS LOT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT VERY HESITANT IN LIFE.
I do my best to be friendly, too, but I am by far not the center of all fun. I try to enhance the fun already present; I cannot create it for others. I am fairly lighthearted though, and while I absolutely suck at it in real life I do in fact love to mingle and make new friends, with a positive view on life. And yeah. I am impulsive, with little hesitance. I just...kinda...do.
NO MATTER HOW FRIENDLY, OUTGOING AND IMPULSIVE THEY MIGHT BE, THERE IS A SOFT AND SENSITIVE SIDE TO THE HAZEL-EYED PEOPLE. THEY ARE NOT THE ONES WHO LET THINGS GO EASILY. SO IT IS BETTER NOT TO MESS WITH THEM WHEN IT COMES TO SUCH ISSUES. THEY ARE SENSITIVE TO THINGS AND PEOPLE AROUND THEM. SO YOU JUST CANNOT TAKE THEM FOR GRANTED. SLIGHTLY DIFFICULT TO HANDLE IF SOMETHING HITS THEM. THEY FALL IN THE ‘HANDLE WITH CARE’ SECTION OF PEOPLE!
THEY LOVE TAKING RISKS. IRRESPECTIVE WHAT THE CONSEQUENCES WOULD BE THEY TAKE CHANCES. ADVENTURE AND THRILL IN LIFE IS WHAT THEY ARE REALLY PASSIONATE ABOUT. THEY DO NOT HESITATE MUCH IN TRYING OUT NEW THINGS AND EXPERIMENTING WITH DIFFERENT KIND OF STUFFS. THEY ACCEPT ALL CHALLENGES WILLFULLY. THE FUN AND FROLIC FACTOR WITHIN THEM MAKES THEM QUITE INTERESTING. THE FEAR OR HESITATION TO INTRUDE INTO NEW THINGS IN LIFE IS HARDLY SEEN IN HAZEL EYED PEOPLE.
OH YES, THEY DON’T LIKE CLINGING ON TO SOMEONE FOR SUPPORT OR FOR THEIR HAPPINESS. THEY LIKE WEAVING A WORLD OF THEIR OWN AND BEING INDEPENDENT. RELYING UPON SOMEONE IS JUST NOT THEIR STYLE! NO MATTER WHAT THEY DO, THEY WILL BE ON THEIR OWN. HAZEL ONES DO HAVE THIS ‘BEING INDEPENDENT’ FEELING IN THEM.
Most of my own happiness comes from my own creations. I make my own worlds, woven from my mysterious magical mind. So you could say: while I'm reliant on others I hate it; while I am not emotionally dependent on people I wish I was, so I suppose in that sense this is accurate enough. But yes. True regardless is that no matter what, I will be my own person, just...be myself. At all times, I am me. I might not BE independent, but I think I give off an aura of it?
RESTLESS UNDER PRESSURE
RESTLESSNESS IS AGAIN A PARTICULAR TRAIT OF THESE HAZEL EYED PEOPLE. WHEN NORMAL, THEY DO THINGS WITH A LOT OF EASE. BUT WHEN UNDER PRESSURE THEY MIGHT BECOME RESTLESS. THEY MIGHT TAKE UP 20 THINGS TO DO. THEY ARE SOMETIMES CRAZY AND MAD. IN SUCH SITUATIONS THEY GENERALLY TEND TO USE THE TRIAL AND ERROR METHOD. THE CHANCE TAKING ATTITUDE SOMETIMES PUTS THEM IN A FIX.
THEY ARE MENTALLY QUICK AND ALERT ALL THE TIME. THEIR SPONTANEITY AND FUN LOVING NATURE REFLECTS THEIR ACTIVE MENTAL STATE.
And yeah. I do tend to have a high level of alertness, except when I am on the brink of sleep. By which, I mean, unless I am mentally exhausted, I am going to always be on top of things, with a mind able to pick up on almost anything, because that's what I do.
So, lots of hits, a few misses. Let's see what this more scientific view says:
HAZEL EYE MYTHS
THE RARENESS OF HAZEL EYES CAUSES SOME PEOPLE TO ASSOCIATE CERTAIN MYTHS TO THIS SHADE OF GREEN. WHAT FOLLOWS ARE SOME OF THE MORE COMMON MISNOMERS CONNECTED TO THOSE WHO WERE BORN WITH HAZEL BROWN, GREEN AND BLUE.
HAZEL EYED PEOPLE ARE MORE ATTRACTIVE
HAZEL EYED PEOPLE ARE SMARTER
HAZEL EYED PEOPLE ARE MORE SPIRITUAL
HAZEL EYED PEOPLE TEND TO BE A WATER SIGN
HAZEL EYES AND ZODIAC SIGN
MANY PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAZEL EYES HAVE A KEEN INTEREST IN THEIR ZODIAC SIGN. THIS IS PARTICULARLY TRUE OF PEOPLE WHO ARE CANCERS AND SCORPIOS. THE TRUTH IS, YOUR ASTROLOGICAL SIGN REALLY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR EYES – YET MANY PEOPLE SEEM TO ASSIGN MAGICAL QUALITIES JUST THE SAME.
THERE ARE FOLKS WHO HAVE SUGGESTED THAT IF YOU HAVE HAZEL EYES, YOU HAVE SPECIAL POWERS THAT COME FROM A DIFFERENT DIMENSION. HERE, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT PSYCHIC ABILITIES OR THE POWER TO SENSE THE EMOTIONS OF OTHERS. TO DATE, THERE IS NO SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT THESE CLAIMS.
Also, I've had an obsession with zodiac signs. (In fact my recent project involves them!) Now, not necessarily the Western zodiac. I've held an interest there and have proudly and loudly declared myself both a Cancer and a Leo in that I am both. But I've also held an intense fascination with the Rooster, my Chinese zodiac. And while I may think that most of this mysterious personality type stuff is mostly just guesswork...
...All the same I'm writing one killer ramble about it, aren't I? That alone should tell you enough. I don't think these things are necessarily scientifically accurate, but nor do I think they are scientifically false, either. Somewhere between the two--where there's an actual magical quality to them.
The second bit is interesting enough, too. I've made it no secret that I basically got into storytelling because these were fantasies of things I was hoping, wishing, were really true...and when they continued to not be, I continued to be disappointed. But I kept making them. One after another. Hoping, praying, that maybe one of them was actually the case, that magic, that fantasy, that some supernatural force was really real.
Eventually that morphed into me making them stories. But the dreams were still there. I wanted to be special. I felt like I was stuck between two world: the special world and the uninformed normal world. I wanted something to pull me into the special world, and yet in spite of me waiting year after year, nothing did. I was stuck increasingly in the real one, and held out for the other one to come yet it never did.
I do in fact still hold my firm faith in another dimension existing--not in the way I did as a kid. The way I thought back then is possible, but I'm not sure it exists. I'm more talking about what I am positive does exist, the more or less concept of the ethereal/dreamrealm/spirit realm/thoughtrealm. Those.
And I do believe it's possible to, in those realms, have that sort of power. Mindreading is actually a real thing, too. People can do it, and there's actually a science behind it. Now! Said mindreading? Not deep. Not 100% to the soul core mindreading. That's possible in those realms, but not here in ours as far as I know. But basic instinct alone can let a person guess, if they're skilled enough: they can see a person and just...know what their problem is.
So emotional reading of others? Totally possible. Heck, I do it even online, off of text without having a face to see. Now it's not a 100% accurate thing for me, because I'm not that good. I'm not a specialist. I'm not trained, I haven't honed this skill to a fine art. But if I had, it would be possible to be right almost all the time, because it's usually possible to predict human basic behavior. We have subconscious tells we all display. It's just a matter of reading them. Of reading people. It is science. Just, not a science we've perfected. But I think the article is wrong to say not scientifically proven. Just, not boiled down so that everyone understands it. We know it's there, we use it. It's the kind of thing a psychologist might use; psychological profiling. The science of the brain. But we don't yet understand why it works, we just know it does.
Still, this is fascinating.
YOUR PERSONALITY CAN BE A LITTLE MORE DIFFICULT TO PREDICT AND PIN DOWN. THAT'S OKAY THOUGH, THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH MAKING THE PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE WORK A LITTLE BIT FOR YOUR APPROVAL.
Soyeah. That was a fun little adventure I just embarked on. Needless to say, I think it was interesting. I could do something similar for zodiacs. I've already done plenty for personality types (INFP I believe I am? I could look it up, I've taken those types of tests enough where I've mostly gotten it down with the N/P being rock-solid definites and the only questions being the I/E and F/T), though who knows? Never hurts to do one more!
Basically this is still the sort of thing which I consider to hold some value and some accuracy and I don't think that to be simple happenstance. I find it fascinating, interesting, worthy of exploring, to see what has merit, what may not, why it has merit, the like. I just think it's something which is good to do to self-explore, and to see what you find.
