    你可以这么理解:
    小心眼就是小的心眼,心眼就好比是心上面的一个洞洞眼,洞洞眼大了,任何事情不管好事坏事过去就过去了,不会留下痕迹,但洞洞眼小了,不就穿不过去了吗?所以小心眼就是指狭隘的胸襟、短浅的眼光、多疑的心理状态以及在细琐事情上的小主意等等,所以最好的理解就是不宽容。
    小气就是吝啬,不爱分享。但同样有狭隘的胸襟的意思。但是口语意义上的小气一般指吝啬。比如花钱小气。还有就是南方人用小气表达北方小心眼的意思。
    总之,小气的使用范围大点,小心眼的人花钱不一定小气。

    小心眼 means jealous while 小气 means petty or stingy.

    小气会是你很多好朋友都觉得你不太怎么够意思当然理解就好,小心眼会是你失去很多朋友,交朋友小气的还勉强可以交毕竟他心还是好的,小心眼的就免了吧交这样的朋友只会气自己,因为你很看不惯他的这种做法。希望能帮到你谢谢

    小心眼 is narrow-minded, a derogatory term.
    小气 is unwilling to spend or give, a neutral term.

     

    小心眼 is more figurative than 小气。小气has more meanings,one of which is 小心眼 when it means somebody is easy to get angry or remember other people's misdeeds.

    小气 is also used to describe a person when he/she is not generous. e.g. Though she is a millionaire, she doesn't want to give me a penny. She is very 小气。(You can't say 小心眼here)

    小心眼 means to remember EVERYTHING even those very very little tiny things.....
    for exmaple, I hit you without express 10 years ago and u always remember this...:D this is 小心眼.
    another example, man quarrels with woman about a very little tiny thing. then this man is 小心眼.

    小气 means exactly "stingy"
