Another age old question brought to you by Plinky, good looks vs. intelligence, which would you choose?
Although it is very possible to be both, certain people hold each choice to a different standard. For some, beauty is deep within and would rather take on a highly intelligent persona. For others, beauty on the outside exudes a confidence that can’t be matched. Where do you stand?
Now let me begin by trying to convince you that I am by no means a shallow person. I am very capable of seeing beauty in everyone as beauty is simply from the eye of the beholder. That said, if given the choice, I would pick, extremely good looking (whatever that means these days) and here’s why…
How you look is something that you are born with. Yes, you can make changes through painful and expensive surgery but for the majority of us, what we’re born with is what we’ve got. Intelligence on the other hand, has the potential to be learned and trained. Now you may never have the genetics to make you a super genius with an IQ of 180 but through persistent studying, education and overall dedication, anyone could be ‘super intelligent’.
So my pick is good looks all the way.
