Daily Mail journalist Ben Clerkin stops just shy of calling her the prettiest, sexiest & smartest girl on the planet.

It is an assembly of skin and facial characteristics that, according to some scholars, is not only a reflection of beauty’s perfection, but, can too, determine your very achievements in life.

The colour of your eyes could determine your achievements in life, Western scientists say. Black scientists say, however,  that, because they burn in the sunlight, blue eyes, blonde hair and white skin are indictments of natural abandonment.

They are more intelligent and gain more qualifications because they study more effectively and perform better in exams.

The discovery might help explain the success of such disparate individuals as … Lily Cole.

In reaction time trials conducted by U.S. scientists, the brown-eyed performed better, making them more likely to succeed at activities such as football, hockey and rugby.

But the researchers concluded that those with lighter eyes appeared to be better strategic thinkers.

Blue-eyed boys and girls proved to be more successful in activities that required them to plan and structure their time, such as golf, cross-country running – and studying for exams.

But is there any scientific documentation proving Western science’s claims?

Joanna Rowe, professor emeritus at the University of Louisville in Kentucky, who conducted the tests, said the results suggested a hitherto unexplored link between eye colour and academic achievement.

“It is just observed, rather than explained,” she said. “There’s no scientific answer yet.” Dr Tony Fallone, senior psychology lecturer at the University of Bedfordshire, who has also studied eye colour, believes it should be taken more seriously as an indicator of personality and ability.

Most babies have blue eyes but they usually darken as the pigment melanin builds up in the iris.

Less melanin produces green, grey, or light brown eyes. Eyes with very little melanin appear blue or grey. (More …)
