It seems to me that people say they prefer personality over looks, but I think people say that so they don't look shallow. I feel that people care about looks more than anything else. I have to admit I used to value it more, but I tried my hardest to care about personality, and that's the main thing I look for now. What do you guys think. Girls or guys doesn't matter.

I don't think they are lying, just oversimplifying. It takes work and time to explore a persons actual personality. Appearance is initially much more important than personality as is indicated by no one ever using the phrase "Whoa, check her out! That one is loaded with integrity"
Before getting to know someone you just have a few vague impressions and their appearance. The initial attraction between strangers is often very much based on appearance, dosed with those first impressions. It isn't until later that your true preferences are put to the test.
So, people are stating there very reasonable final deciding factors even if the initial ones may differ due to practicality.0
