Why if someone admits they're intelligent is ok? and is not seen as such a big deal? but when someone aknowledge their own beauty is such a "woow! keep it down.

Humility isn't easy. Knowing you're intelligent and proclaiming it is just as bad as knowing your pretty and saying it in my opinion. If you're pretty and you know you're pretty, there isn't any reason for you to say it. If you're smart and you know you're smart than why would you be telling other people you're smart? Shouldn't they already know you're smart from the quality of your conversation and the depth of your knowledge? Also, when beauty and intelligence is all subjective you're putting yourself in an awkward position when someone can challenge you on your proclamation. In my circle of friends I might seem really smart because I'm the only one with the college education but if I were to appear at an Ivy League I'm sure I'd look like a simpleton with my state college degree. The same goes for beauty.
