We all know Good looks and intelligence rarely come hand in hand.
So what would it be for you??
If you say had the choice to chose one of the two.

Would you chose to have good looks where you'ld have no problem getting chick/guys and it'ld be easy to get things your way. You'll say "have a life". But at the expense of not being very bright and intelligent.
or
Would you chose to have remarkable intelligence where you can solve complicated problems with no difficulty, get good grades, know how to work things out great with great talent and skill. But at the expense of not being very attractive and losing out on the social aspect of life. Where you'ld kinda say "have no life".

So guys, what would it be for you??
Be absolutely honest.


And just to note, the poll question is slightly different.
#2
The most joy out of life comes from your social interactions. If picking intelligence is going to make that greatly suffer, then no thanks.

What is the purpose of life if it is not to get laid? Seriously.
#3
I'd choose intelligence over beauty. With beauty you're going to be living a pretty unfulfilled life whereas intelligence you get to see the true beauty of life. Genius' have achieved beautiful compositions, thought provoking artwork and incredible breakthroughs in the field of science. Now, what have just the beautiful achieved?

That's just terribly wrong thinking.

A lot of famous artists actually suffered from various elements of life.

Beautiful people are generally happier, and that's the truth.
#12
Well, I haven't been called "attractive" by anyone other than who I was dating at that time...But I've been told I'm talented by teachers, etc. So, I guess intelligence! Personal happiness does not come from a group of other people.

Also what IEatOrphans....said

Intelligence. I'm so sick of every girl coming up to me saying "God damnit, you callipygian superhero, take me where I stand!". If I could just walk the streets like a normal man for once I'd be happy. You know, with a small penis or whatever it is that normal men have.

Maybe so but he's asking what you would prefer. I would rather live a life of sadness doing things that mean something rather than living meaninglessly. That may sound stupid eh it's my opinion.

Irrelevant. They're still happier. As they say, ignorance is bliss.

Give them reason to. The whole self-pitying thing just makes a person a whole lot uglier.

You only really need beauty until you're like 18, after that you'll become nothing if you depend on your beauty.

Yes, true. It just comes down to your moral system, wether you want to live in ignorance or intellect. However, it is possible to achieve total happiness and compassion in intelligence, you just have to know what to do.

I'd take beauty any day.

If I could be a more emotionally well rounded intellectual, then maybe that. But I'd rather be happy in my attractive ignorance.

Means something to whom? To you? Exactly. Why can't the beautiful people find meaning in their lives with the things they do? I'm sure they'll connect a lot more emotionally with people than the "intelligent social outcasts".

You know, driving an SUV doesn't make your penis any bigger.

You're still ugly. And you have to live with the fact that you hated yourself so much that you needed to physically alter yourself to find some comfort.

"beauty is a form of genius - is higher, indeed, than genius, as it needs no explanation. it is of the great facts of the world, like sunlight, or springtime, or the reflection in dark waters of that silver shell we call the moon. it cannot be questioned."

~oscar wilde

if the alternative was to be some misanthropic phantom of the opera-type of guy, i'll take beauty.

Quote by imdeth
And possibly some life threatening sexually transmitted diseases in doing so

Right, so all beautiful people are automatically at great risk of getting STDs?

You people are just making silly assumptions, as if you're doing it out of revenge towards all the beautiful people in life. It's clearly a case of envy here.

I'm not saying I'm beautiful, but think rationally, please.

I'm just saying I'd want to leave something behind when I die. I know that beautiful people will leave behind memories of their friends, families etc. I want to do something important and leave something to be remembered by the world. Besides, intelligent people can engage socially with other intellects and gain friends that way.

I recall the quote from American Psycho:

Patrick Bateman, Craig McDermott, David Van Patten: There are no girls with good personalities.
David Van Patten: A good personality consists of a chick with a little hard body, who will satisfy all sexual demands without being too slutty about things, and who essentially will keep her dumb ****ing mouth shut.
Craig McDermott: The only girls with good personalities who are smart or maybe funny or halfway intelligent or talented, though god knows what the **** that means, are ugly chicks.
David Van Patten: Absolutely.
Craig McDermott: And this is because they have to make up for how ****ing unnattractive they are.

That's not the point. Just because someone's beautiful it doesn't mean they're having wild sex every night and without protection. You can be beautiful and faithful to one person in life.
#36
I've been told I was cute. But my thighs set me back. And I like being smart, because yesterday I was able to tell my mom where orgasms really come from.

Uh, no we don't. Everyone has a degree of both, and you can both make an effort with your appearance and make an effort to learn.

So you're basically asking us to pick between someone who's clinically retarded or horribly deformed, or else the two can't be distinguished, as they as both elements of any human being.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.
