Eyes also happen to be the first thing that a person notices about someone. While our eyes speak volumes of how we feel, the very shape and size of our eyes can reveal a lot about us.
The eyes not only mirror one’s thoughts, feelings and emotions but by observing closely, their personality – how they react, how they behave with others and what affects them can be judged too.

Shape of the Eyes:
Look at the corner and center of your eyes. Observe how the eyelids curve around them. Almond-shaped eyes are those that sharpen gradually, giving an almond-like shape to your eyes. On the other hand, rounded eyes are very wide in the center and curve rather abruptly.
Almond Shaped Eyes
Almond-shaped eyes are often prized for their exotic and mystical appearance. If you possess these, then you are a very attentive and cautious person.

You don’t usually show your emotions, though deep down you are warm and compassionate.
The round eye is highly curved upper and lower lids. People with Round eyes are emotional, speak their minds easily and tend to be dramatic.

Strong idealism is also a hallmark of these eyes, so is moodiness and impracticality. Blessed with creativity and a vivid imagination, you are often lost in a world of your own.
Distance between Eyes:
Your eye shape can also be defined by the distance between your eyes. Ideally, the distance between your eyes should be one eye-width. People who have less than that tend to have close-set eyes and those who have more than that, they are said to have wide-set eyes.
If the distance between your eyes is exactly one eye-width, it means you are a very balanced person, with a good outlook towards life, and a healthy attitude toward people.
Close Set Eyes
People with close-set eyes are very traditional by nature. They love their roots, old traditions, and history. They like to follow every little custom of their ancestors and family. Unfortunately, this also means they are very resistant, even stressed, by small changes in their lives. They love to know things in depth, even if you are telling a story. They are also much focused, disciplined, detail-minded people, prone to be a bit short-tempered, but ultimately very successful.
Wide Set Eyes
People with wide-set eyes are usually adaptable, flexible and tolerant with their broad perspective of life. They are extremely adventurous and experimental. They are innovative thinkers and cannot easily stick to a routine. They find love and success in areas where there is a sense of freedom and liberty.
Prominent or Deep-set Eyes:
Prominent eyes are often called protruding or bulging eyes, and look as if they are coming out of the face, while deep-set eyes form a bit of a hollow, and have a sunken appearance.
Prominent / Protruding Eyes:
People with these type of eyes are often very sensitive and like to surround themselves with a protective circle of close friends and associates. Still, many people find them very approachable, warm-hearted and friendly, as they love meeting new people. However, they get worried easily and are quite pessimistic.
Deep Set Eyes
People with deep-set eyes are intense, observant, idealistic, and progressive. They are passionate, romantic and have great analyzing skills. They love creative work so mostly found in writing and other creative fields. They like to observe things around them and build conclusions about it.
