We had an argument in class today over this after reading a novel.

The question was "Do you think a person's beauty comes from the way they look or the way they are on the inside??" (meaning like personality, values, etc.)

I sided in the middle. All the people on the personality side argued that they're only attracted to people who are genuine, polite, caring, etc.

I basically told them it was total bullshit. Yeah, someone possessing or not possessing those characteristics can have an effect on attraction but ultimately they were arguing sentimentality over biology.


I even asked them if they would hang out with someone who refused to shower if said person happened to have an amazing personality and be really caring. They said yes.


I call BS. Looks/physical attributes has a lot to do with attraction.
Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.

When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.

People will say that but its bull shit. All the popular girls say "I realllly care about personality, looks are a bonus"

Well it's the opposite. Looks are more common, good personality is a bonus to them.

I don't get how girls/guys keep getting screwed over by each other over and over if they've really found the right guy with the awesome personality.

What novel were you reading?

But yeah, trying to be objective sucks when everyone is convinced otherwise.

Yeah, of course they're lying. They wouldn't date a guy/girl with giant moles, a unibrow, and a gap no matter good a person he/she is. Plain and simple.

They are different types of beauty. Different types of beauty will become more or less important depending on what the person is looking for. For example, when I'm looking for a friend to hang out with I'm looking for personality, not looks. If I'm looking for a quick hook up, I'm going to go for physical beauty. If I'm going to look for a serious relationship, I'm going to look for someone who strikes a good balance. not sure if I answered anything there.

Looks are the bait, but personality is the hook. That's how I see it at least. Someone's looks get me interested but I won't stay interested if their personality is shit.
