Is there a correlation between looks and intelligence? Are conventionally attractive people indeed smarter than uglier ones?
Attractive people are generally smarter, stronger, healthier, happier, and have bigger dicks than ugly people.
I'm ugly but my dig is big
>Is there a correlation between looks and intelligence? Are conventionally attractive people indeed smarter than uglier ones?
>He's so shy, it's soooooo cute :P
And to top it off, they experience emotions including the greater share of happiness more intensely, while miserable people's brain functions get duller over time
>Are conventionally attractive people indeed smarter than uglier ones?
Yeah. The more you're lonely and depressed, the more your brain rots away. Attractive people have more positive social engagements so their minds are healthier and more active.
In life good things come in pairs.
Some unattractive people may be blessed with high intelligence and autistic devotion that allows them to excel in something but usually:
attractive = good genetics = high intelligence
attractive => social acceptance => good social skills
social acceptance => social support
social support => +happiness
high intelligence => better career prospects => +happiness
happiness => higher productivity => +happiness
Attractivness is a pretty good rough and quick indicator of overall quality of a person, so I think it's a good instinct to follow. Of course there are other qualities but for a quick cut-off aesthetics is great.
>attractive = good genetics = high intelligence
Stupid => only chance to reproduce being more at active than intelligent competitors.
After thousand generations the stupidity is still highly presented in gene pool. Stupid people => atractive ;)
My argumentation contains mistakes
The fact that ugly and dumb people continue to reproduce without problems kinda says that that argument doesn't work.
he's sooo mysterious
Nope. Ugly people are often more dedicated as there is no distraction of having social life.
Nost IT guys and scientists are not hot chads and more like opposite of that, disregard press representatives, look at eggheads.
But having ugly face might destroy your confiene so you do not put effort into anything also.
yep, beauty is strongly correlated with intelligence
Very good. Possible explanation is that they reproduce among themselves. For example Stupid + Stupid = many stupid children.
Attractive people are generally better adjusted and thus happier. Thriving in a social environment means that in general your potential skills won't be crippled by the crushing weight of depression and loneliness and you will be able to develop whatever abilities you have way easier than someone who is not well adjusted.
This means that whatever potential intelligence there is will be more likely developed in someone who is attractive than someone that isn't, and there may be a degree of correlation between both settis.
There are also other factors and individual cases such as an isolated person taking refuge in books and thus becoming smarter, or an attractive person relying on their looks to get everything they want rather than cultivating their selves.
t.used to be ridiculously far ahead of my classmates when I was young but got my cognitive potential crippled due to depression, teenagers being assholes and bad choices and is now a NEET
Really ugly people tend to have something wrong with them and tend to be stupid look at bernds, for example
Definite good looks don't necessarily indicate intelligence or good genes though, most intelligent and accomplished people are average in appearance. Both ugly and beautiful people are deviations from the norm, appearance-wise.
I think that being attractive grants you emotional support from others in order to overcome your obstacles. Everyone complimenting and encouraging you will only lead that person to be more dedicated to his work\studies and eventually, prevail in life both physically and intelectually. (being encouraged by parents isn't enough)
Ugly people usually are insulted and abused since early age thus leading to isolation and general desinterest in the affairs of the "real world". They retreat into themselves as a defense mechanism, this can lead to NEETdom, minimum wageslaving... usually the only way out for them is trough criative work but in a group of 100 neets, only one is rescued through his criativity.
you mean creative?
>Ugly people are often more dedicated as there is no distraction of having social life.
This is an absolute meme. Social life is not really distracting. Social life is good for your mental health which increases productivity. At work you may need to work together with others and there are things like meetings. For social people these things come easy. You can be social and be able to work long hours and then come home to your family to relax.
Most scientists are normal people who are married. Just check out some random professors and their homepages.
from my expierence good looking people are dumber. maybe not iq-wise, but because their life is easier and non-problematic they are just fucking dumb and clueless
this is the truth
> Are conventionally attractive people indeed smarter than uglier ones
At least they appears to be smarter. But sometimes it is the oposite. I know a girl, who looks very good, has big tits and is also very smart (STEM PhD, we wrote together an article). But many men still have prejustitions towards her inelligence.
>t.used to be ridiculously far ahead of my classmates when I was young but got my cognitive potential crippled due to depression, teenagers being assholes and bad choices and is now a NEET
Story of my life.
If someone tells my high school teacher how much of a looser i've become they won't simply believe it
>I know a girl
Well as yne just said STEM and not stated wer speciality I presume that you are just making shit up.
>only lead that person to be more dedicated to his work\studies and eventually,
Doesn't help if you study a meme
t. studied government (political science)
And no I'm not going to law school, law is a painfully oversaturated field in the US
I know that feel.
that feelio when I get this
On average maybe, but I would say on the outliers of extremely intelligent and extremely dumb people tend to be not so attractive.
Most importaint scientiests don't look like models and most models don't have the brain power to be nobel price winning scientists. Dumb ugly people look ugly in different was than smart ugly people.
No. He criated a new word
