Either guys or girls. My girl is like a smart 9 but I would choose a dumb nine if I was single. Still I love smart girls.
So if you had to pick one out of...a smart 7 or a dumb 9?

People are so ridiculous on here...they just give the answer that seems the most PC.
There is so much more to a person than being "smart" or "dumb"
I know lots of guys that may struggle with school, but they are nice, honest, and hardworking. Intelligence is slightly relative anyways. While someone may be "dumb" when it comes to tests and school work they may have a lot of street smarts.
So there is a lot to factor in here. Overall I guess I'd just say a dumb 9...1
depends on what kind of dumb. like, I don't care if you're not all that book-smart, but if you're dumb about everyday, real life stuff, then I could never date someone like that. I mean, I can't even try to hold a conversation with people like that for even five minutes before it feels like my brain's turning to goo.
if you're too dumb to even keep up a normal, everyday life conversation, then I'm sorry but you need to gtfo.
hopefully that makes sense :P1
First instinct, go for the smart 7 because I love smart guys. I like to pick their brains for information and they rub off on me. Plus, 7 is still pretty high on the looks scale. The exception is if the guy has zero personality or sense of humor. Or if he's a jerk.. that's a huge turn-off, I'd drop him and scoop the dumb 9 in a heartbeat. Educate him a little bit.. we'd be alright.2

A dumb nine; I'm smart enough for the both of us.2
I'll take a dumb 9 so I can look smart around someone! Lmaoo4
Smart 7, as long as he's a nice guy. I'd prefer brains over looks any day, since I'd want to hang out with someone who I can talk with about anything and everything.3

i'll take the dumb 9, I'm into arm candy, haha. when girls are dumb, I find it endearing, absolutely adorable. I dated this girl like 10 years ago, and we worked with a pregnant girl. of course all the chicks ooh-ed and ahh-ed over it all day, every day. so annoying, but anyway...hahaha. so lindsey, the girl I was seeing (sweetest kid in the world, and hot as all get out, but just dumb as box of hammers), goes up to the pregnant girl and says "can I try to feel the baby kicking?", and the girl says, "sure." so lindsey puts her hands on either side of her stomach and after a few seconds says, "can you feel my hands on your stomach?" and everyone just kind of looked down and away, we were just dumbfounded, hahaha. the pregnant girl was a wise-ass, so she was like "oh my god, lindsey...of course I can." I still don't think lindsey realized she was being teased. absolutely classic. but I just wanted to hug her, hahaha.
my current girlfriend is definitely the brains of our operation though. love her to death, but she always wants to talk about serious sh*t. I'm a pretty smart guy (1300 out 1600...yes, I'm that old...on my SATs, for whatever that's worth) but I'm NOT an intellectual at all. literally the last thing I'm looking for is deep conversation. I don't give a f*** about politics or current events, in fact I purposely stay ignorant of that stuff, since I think it's all bullsh*t. I'm all about sports, laughs, and good times. if your conversation isn't about anything under those categories, I'm bored to death. maybe I'm a dumb 9, actually, hahaha. ahhh, who am I kidding...i'll give myself a dumb 8 ;-)1
Have to agree with madiocre. Depends on what kind of dumb. What I value most is street smarts not book smarts.
If a girl has the maturity and decision making of a 10 year old (dumb blond type stuff), that is not a turn on and would def go with the 7. However, if the 9 is a perfectly functioning human being who has ample street smarts but just doesn't know the molecular makeup of a hydrogen atom, I'm OK with that and would pick the 9.
Frankly I've dated a brainiac and I'll never do it again. I'm a pretty smart guy, but I don't like when I feel like I lose 100IQ points just by standing next to her.1
I'd take the intelligent 7 for a long term relationship and the dumb 9 for a one night stand. There has to be something to talk about beyond the last episode of Gossip Girl for a relationship to have any staying power for me.3
Most definitely a smart 7. As time goes on those numbers will down but being smart or dumb is permanent.2
I'd pick a moderate 82
id date the smart 7 for sure :)1

Smart 7 all the way1
A smart 7 for me please...I value intelligent females...(:(:(:1
