  • This is so simple - BOTH!
    Take a survey now of powerful men in industry, arts, politics worldwide and in the past: JFK and Jaqueline and Marilyn, Pitt and Jolie, McGraw and Hill, Wilbur Ross and his wife...
    For us serfs, a man may like eye-candy on his arm, however, a partner who combats intelligently, challenging preconceived notions ala (Revolutionary Road - Kate Winslet/LeonardoDeCaprio early premise of the book/movie) just make a perfect couple.

  • If i say only intelligence , would be a lie. You choose them first because of their appearance, then you get to know them, you like them more because of characteristics , intelligence.. etc :)
    But in the end their appearance is just the beginning, and they are already the best in your eyes.

  • I'll admit it, I prefer beauty to intelligence. But there are other characteristics besides intelligence which i prefer over beauty. For me, a sense of humour and an outgoing personality outweigh beauty.

  • Right now because I'm relatively young I still value beauty a lot, however I know that beauty fades eventually and well understand the value of intelligence. Right now though they're about equal in value for me. I can only be with a girl I'm physically attracted to and can also have intellectual conversations with.

  • It's imperative that she possesses both qualities. Quite frankly, with such a large supply of beautiful and intelligent women, I have no incentive to settle for just one or the other.

  • What we want to prefer : Intelligence
    What we actually prefet: Beauty.

    Truth is we'll go for beauty+no intelligence but we won't go for Intelligence+no beauty.
    If we were to choose between the two of them we'll choose beauty.
    But if there's lack of minimum intelligence then a long term is difficult so in conclusion we prefer both but we prefer beauty more than intelligence.

  • To be honest, I want a balance, I admit that I'm an idiot in most things so I want someone that can challenge me but not always beat me, but I also want someone who I won't be horrified by but also can not be a prick with how good they look, still, if it was one over the other, it would be beauty, she would feel like a genuine genius with how stupid I am

  • I'm going to go out and say it, I prefer beauty. Don't get me wrong I wouldn't date a girl who is just looks and no personality but if I had to choose beautiful with personality and smart with personality I would choose beautiful. I couldn't date a girl that I don't feel physically attracted to, that just makes no sense.

  • How about chemistry and personality. My ideal partner does not have to have a PhD, nor need to be a beauty model. Some intelligent people are real snobs, and some attractive people are jerks with others. No need to label people intelligent or beautiful.

  • I prefer intelligence insofar as I find intelligence higher than mine intriguing and low intelligence appalling in a partner, whereas these effects are lesser for beauty.

  • When it comes down do beauty attraction can always change especially as you get older but intelligence never fades. Personally although physical attraction is much more appealing intelligence is enduring, and therefore of more value.

    • I don't think that's the case always. I have seen that when you're just fooling around, you choose beauty, but when it comes down to settling down, people will always choose wisdom and love. By the age you decide to settle down, you're already at a point when you've realized that beauty is not a constant thing, but wisdom is. πŸ˜‰

  • Intelligence is what makes people beautiful to me. I'm sapiosexual.
