    This is a challenging question.  Looks are fleeting and riches don't last - so I pick famous.

    Famous, because that means that I have done something notable of recognition.  Fame can lead to riches. 

    Interesting question, thanks for asking.

    I will choose famous because famous will bring rich and attractive to you.

    I choose rich because with wealth I would be able to afford the procedures to make myself attractive. Wealth would also allow me to explore possibilities and ideas that could, in time, make me famous. So if all went well, in the end, I would be attractive, rich and famous.

    Do not want to be famous.  Rich would be my choice and I could use some of the money to become attractive.

    Interesting question;)
    Famous!!! ....by far.
    I would be in a position of influence, my words would be printed.I would use that advantage to draw global awarness to causes that are dear to me!!

    I will use LadyGaGa as a prime example, re aids campaign & others! ...all though, I totally dislike her recent slogen "let your lil monster come out of you "  Help Creepy....(poor youth)

    If I could only be one, I pick rich.  I could deal with aesthetically challenged and I could deal with being a private person so I pick rich.

    My feeling is why settle for one when all three are achievable?
    One can be attractive without perceived physical beauty. One can be very rich without money due to what they give to the world and what they receive in return. Likewise, 'famous' is a nebulous term. What does fame really mean? One can be famous for all the wrong reasons. Take Hitler for example. I certainly wouldn't want that sort of fame.
    I believe that true beauty comes from within, richness comes from gratitude, sharing, knowledge, friendships and a whole host of other things that create a fulfilled life. Fame comes from continual good and kind actions, no matter how small or large. Sometimes the smallest thoughtful act can make all the difference to someone and they'll remember it and you forever.
    Look in the mirror. You may be surprised to find that all three attributes are already very present in your life. All you need to do is recognise them.

    Very interesting question and I believe that only a few take it seriously. In my opinion, the answer is not truly one of the three you suggest. It's not which would you choose or which would be better. It's not who would like you for helping them with money, it's not who will think you are the prettiest and its not how many people will know who you are.

    Honestly, and this is how i feel. Being attractive can be a downfall because most people do not know how to handle the pressure and the same goes for all three. Money , fame and appearance can change people if they did not start off with it and have decent roll models to help them along.

    Why be rich when money goes away..

    Why be attractive when looks fade...

    Why be famous when everybody only likes you for your fame...

    In the end if you are a decent person and try to live your life honest and the best way you can. Then you are giving your best to the world and in return you will receive a wonderful thing.

    greenbergpaulf22posted 12 years ago

    Theoretically speaking, someone could actually achieve all three of these just by having high self esteem.

    That being said, I would choose rich, simply because I prefer to surround myself with people that accept me, rather than be surrounded by people who want me to accept them.

    Rich in money, friends, knowledge (wisdom?) and this list could go on and on.  Seems like most assumed money, but with a question like this, I would want to be sure.

    I would go with rich. As others have mentioned, money can make the other two happen. Heck, sometimes just being rich makes you seem more attractive to others, which brings it's own fame!

    Rich, so I could help people in need. Just a point, most people assume Famous might be a good thing but "Jack the Ripper" was famous. So no thank you for Famous.

  30. TheMonk profile image60
    TheMonkposted 12 years ago

    People forget that been famous is a two way street. I think Michael Jackson could agree with me. However, if you think about it, and the fame is good, I think any answer would make the other two gravitate toward you. It´s like this:

    If you are famous (the good fame type, I mean) then you are admired and that per se is an attractive factor. The money would come by the leveraging of that fame. (It didn´t work quite so well for Gandi, but you know what I mean, right?)

    If you are rich, you can use the money to be famous and that would bring people around you, making you more attractive.

    If you are attractive, well. You could ALWAYS merry some rich guy/gal and be famous by that!

    danfresnourbanposted 12 years ago

    There are some good answers here that discuss attractiveness on the inside and rich without money, and those are true, but to answer the question in the most literal sense, I would say attractive because the people with the other attributes are drawn to attractive people.

    I think that since I'm a little older now, I'd go with being rich.  I can always buy things to make me attractive and of course being famous just calls for some silly reality show.

    Rich, because so much more of life is open to people when they have money.  It would be wonderful not to have to worry how the bills are going to be paid or to travel where I wanted to, or to buy the best food instead of the supermarket's own brand.  I would hate to be famous, with the media following my every move, which would cause so much stress.  And with money I would be able to afford cosmetic surgery to make me attractive.

    I would love to be famous. As I am into consultancy, I would like to be known by the people for my contribution to the society, for the knowledge i share with others, for being a catalyst in improving lives of others through education, guidance, counselling, mentoring.
    I am grateful to God for giving me the body that I have and I am proud of it. I am also very sure that only money does not take you anywhere.
    So, I am very clear that if I have the choice, I will choose to be famous.

    Just kidding. I'd probably pick Rich, just because making Anime Music Videos, and collecting Anime-related paraphernalia - I hope i spelled that right - are very expensive hobbies.

    fortunately the three seem to coincide rather often.  for me it is a tough choice between riches, because it would be fun to be philanthropic, or being attractive because you can't truly buy attraction and people automatically like attractive people more, so it would give you a sort of instant credibility
