Scientists discover that eyes really are ‘the window to the soul’
Everyone has a different structure of lines, dots and colours in their iris.
The researchers argued that eye structure and personality could be linked because the genes responsible for the development of the iris also play a role in shaping part of the frontal lobe of the brain, which influences personality.
They say the findings could one day be used in psychoanalysis and by companies screening candidates for jobs.
The results will be published in the American journal Biological Psychology. ‘Our results suggest people with different iris features tend to develop along different personality lines,’ said Matt Larsson, a behavioural scientist who led the study at Orebro University.’These findings support the notion that people with different iris configurations tend to develop along different trajectories in regards to personality.
Differences in the iris can be used as a biomarker that reflects differences between people.’
The speed and accuracy with which irises can be mapped means there is growing interest in using photographs of eyes for security as well as research purposes.
Trials of the iris technology have been taking place at Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester airports.
