I've noticed people care more about looks than personality.
You could be super hot and everyone will be interested in you, with the exception of a few put off by your personality.
But if you're not so good looking people aren't gonna find you as attractive. With a few liking you due to your great personality.
This is just what I've picked up on.
What are your thoughts?

I feel like the first impression you get of a person are their looks there for they are pretty important. Personality matters most to me but I can't see someone's personality before I see how they look. And its hard to want to know them if your not attracted to them ya know?1

Tl;dr, it depends on what you're looking for when dating or going for a relationship.
I think that if you're looking for casual dates as a guy, looks are pretty much of utmost importance to even get a first date going, especially when you try to get a date with a woman on some online platform (i. e., online dating, Tinder, stuff like that). You can compensate some lack in looks by high confidence, charisma, social skills, and body language when trying to get a casual date in person.
Another huge advantage of looks over personality is that women tend to be more ballsy in trying to get their attention. The (few) times you see women take any initiative is when a guy stands out in looks as that's the only real visual and thus first encounter indicator of someone.
Past that initial phase, personality is where it's at provided you're looking for anything with some substance.
Of course for anything past just acquaintanceship or friendship you will want to have at least some physical attractiveness in the eyes of the beholder, but unless you're looking to for just casual sex or a relationship without any substance but mostly just sex as aim (or with a naive woman blinded by said looks), "super hot" looks with a crappy personality won't work well.
I have practically no experience casually dating as I'm only average looking, but I wouldn't turn in my personality for better looks (even though at times I wonder if I'm below average looking due to that lack of clear interest from women; chances are I'm just blind to hints/signs).
(With the risk of being seen as bragging) I'm liked by many, acquaint and befriend with ease, and knowing that it's all based solely on my personality and my actions rather than something I can't change like looks, is a great feeling as I regard personality much higher than looks in other people as well. It's nice knowing my genuine personality is appreciated.
I've noticed that women with some substance/good personality themselves and looking for more than just a hook-up tend to find personality more important in the long run as well. (Again, provided the man is not incredibly ugly in the woman's personal opinion, though exceptions exist.)
Even if a woman falls for someone's personality, though, it's often that the women keeps it to herself hoping the man will somehow find out on his own or through small hints. Thrice I had women confess they fell for me over time, though they only confessed years after they got over it.0
