What do you find is the sexiest quality, beauty or brains?

If you were to have to choose one over the other, would you go with someone who is gorgeous but not too bright, or someone who is really smart but not that good looking?

I'm a really deep/intellectual person. As much as I've found some guys that I've dated in the past painstakingly attractive, when I begin to realize they weren't that bright (I've seriously gone out with the blondest of the blonds , no offense), I fall out of infatuation with them right away.

I've dated a few people like this as well.. There's nothing worse than trying to have a conversation with a person who has nothing going on upstairs.

I don't love the poll options. I need a little bit of both. I need to be able to hold a conversation with a perosn but if I'm absolutely not attracted then it won't work for me either

Physical attraction is a minimal necessity for me. I got lucky with my partner being to die for, but it's never been necessary.

It was meant as an either or choice. One of those questions where you can't have both, only one.

I could never be attracted to someone that I didn't find intellectually engaging, no matter how attractive they are. This was one of those "girlfriend" discussions over a few drinks the other night.

Easy choice - brains! A beautiful brain makes you more beautiful on the outside I can't stand to be around pretty, but dumb people.

So, no one chose beauty over brains. Are we all on EF just smart, and know beauty doesn't really matter too much? Or I wonder if everyone feels this way, because "in public" it seems that beauty beats brains any day!

Can we have an option of 3/4 brains and 1/4 beauty?

for me, an initially 'hot' mate turns ugly as soon as i find out their mind is not where i prefer it to be. be it a loathsome set of mannerisms, racism, rude-ism, or general dunce-ism, i find the exterior to change depending on how one presents themselves.


someone who doesn't initially catch my eye can turn super sexy to me if they've got the right attitude, and can make me laugh. it's the little things that count.

I also love a guy with a sense of humor. I am a mother with three daughters and my kids are goofy sometimes. so its nice to have a guy laugh with me..

It'd be interesting to see if there was a difference in responses if voting was private.

I would have to vote "other". I do prefer brains, but I think attitude is more important. I've known too many women who were either smart or beautiful, or both, but their attitudes made them the least attractive people I know.

Intelligent, talented woman have their own sort of beauty that is something I think is truly unique. For me it is a quality that is completely different from basic, physically defined beauty which gets promoted too often over anything else.

Brains. Cause if you're smart, you make more money. Then you can afford plastic surgery.

I'm pretty sure most of my sig. others were smarter than they were pretty, although that doesn't mean looks suffered all the time: some were pretty dang smart!
