For some reason I get compliments on my looks a lot. But it never makes me feel naythimg. But when people call me smart, or ask me for tutor them, etc. I always get soooo tingly and butterflies in my stomach.. the reason I'm so confident is not because of my looks but because of my intelligence

  • To me it's looks because I've heard some negatives with very few positives. Would be nice to hear more positives.

  • Definitely intelligence. Looks is one thing but to have your opinions respected and people ask for your suggestions on projects or anything. Bigger ego boost to me lol.

  • Looks.
    I don't mean to sound arrogant, but I'm aware of how smart I am. So being told that I'm smart is flattering, but being told I'm handsome is more pleasing. I have no clue why, it just is.

  • My looks are useless to me unless a woman likes them.

    My intelligence is useless to women, it's only useful to me.

    So looks.

  • My intelligence is my strength, so compliments to that area aren't really anything new to me. Compliments on my looks, however, will make my day.

  • I get compliments on my intelligence but it's not so frequent for my looks. So compliments on looks would make me feel much better.

  • I'm a lot more insecure about my looks than I am about my intelligence, so compliments about my looks make me feel better.

  • both are great but looks make me feel better because I think it is more realistic for someone to think I am cute than smart.

  • From strangers: looks
    From significant others: intelligence (or preferably a mix of both)

    I had a boyfriend who only complimented me about my looks. At first it was flattering but it got old after a while and I started wondering if he was only dating me because of how I look.

  • I know I'm fairly smart, that's not really subjective as many things such as my grades can reflect that. Beauty however is subjective, therefore being complimented on looks feels more rewarding in my opinion.

  • Compliments on my looks. I'm more self-conscious about my looks than my intelligence, so I appreciate the compliments about the former more.

  • Eh I don't know. When people compliment me on my looks I don't take it seriously or consider it true I guess. Though if I was into that person I'd accept it and say thanks but in my head i'd be like "Oh Man Got Damm!" (Basically dying on happiness)
    Then I'm used to getting compliments on my intelligence and I'll reply with a smile and a thanks. Sooooo I'll say looks. Under certain circumstances.

  • My Intelligence (my insights and opinions) , compliments on my looks dooooo nothing for me 98% of the time. Fhe only time it does something is when somebody notices something that no one has noticed. When someone makes you feel seen, really seen. Saying you like nice, gorgeous, sexy, hott, cute, beautiful, breath-taking... does nothing for me. But generally compliments do nothing for me unless I feel like I earned it though. Somebody buttering me up or just feeling the need to flatter me doesn't toot my horn in the slightest. I rather go through life with no compliments then ones that don't feel genuine.
