What's more important, beauty or brains?
But wait... before you answer brains because most I assume will. Which would you choose if you could only pick one? Would you pick beauty or intelligence? Which one do you think gets a person further in life?
There is nothing as breathtakingly beautiful as a smart human, no matter the size, shape, color, or creed. No question for me, always brains; the beauty is found within.
With the brain and wits one can create beauty so both I guess
Plus, the older we become the less beautiful we are so what's left after all?
Of course i agree with you my first answer would be brains. With brains you can do whatever you set your mind to! The one problem is you need to work for it...nothing comes easy...
On the other hand being good looking changes things. If your beautiful you can land a career and not do anything. All you need to do is sit there and look pretty!
I think both get you far in life...beauty is easier, but brains get you further!
I am not sure. I like being right which requires brains. I also like other people accepting what I say at face value, which would be easier if I was good looking. I guess I would choose brains; and, look for a group of really ugly, stupid people to hang around. That way I could have both.
As girls, teens, and young women, my younger sister, beat me hands down.
I truly stood in her shadow. How I envied her. She was so much more personable, likeable and quite frankly, she was far prettier.
Years later, I learned that she envied me for my love of learning and studying............who would have guessed!
Today, I have the benefit of experience in various careers, and am
able to negotiate for my pay. Though, I do have some " fine lines" and
a touch of grey, my little sister, works for a paltry pay, and looks as though
she has lived a haggard and hard life......and she has.
I was the bookworm, and she was the party girl.......commanding all the attention.
When I saw her recently, I was shocked by her appearance!
If we went into the same job marketplace.........she, although capable, would be
seen as " old", I would be viewed as 'experienced', though we both learned our life skill ( cooking) from the same Grandmother.
There was a time, that I envied my little sister, today, I wish she had taken
a different road, and not have been so hard on herself......the hardness, shows.
My face is what it is, but she could have studied and still have been pretty.
A woman can not depend upon " pretty" alone........time will rob you of your assest.
Still, I adore my little sister, and I so wish that we had remained closer in our adult lives......I very rarely speak of her.
She relied on her good looks and entertaining attitude, and they have betrayed her, leaving her, wrinkled, haggard, and in poverty. It is very much like a young sensational, bright star, burning out too quickly.
Brains. I am turned on by intelligence regardless of how someone looks.
Those with good looks are expected to succeed more, be paid more, and have better jobs. They are also treated better. I don't want someone who has been handed everything they have. I want someone who knows what they are doing and has worked hard for it.
This is a really good question. As a woman I think that beauty is more important. As a man, I think that brains is more important. When looking for a man, I would choose someone that is smart more than good looking. Women can get further in life with beauty in my opinion. It is a little sad, but that is how gender roles go in our society.
If I could only pick one? To tell you the truth I already have quite a bit of intelligence, being one of the smartest ones in the household. As you have stated I believe that intelligence is indeed the most important to have in life it will get you further. However if I could pick one myself I would have to admit I would probably pick beauty because I've suffered enough through out childhood up to even now by some one hating at least one thing on me.
I prefer beauty rather than brains, why because? attitude, intelligence & knowledge can be change or develop, while beauty cannot be change.
Brains 100% beauty is only skin deep, plus brains = money and then money can buy beauty
i heard his once and im going to pass it on:
Brains is the thing that points out beauty, but beauty is the thing that points out brains.

What's more important? Image or talent?It seems like the music artists today focus more on their image than their music. For me I believe someone with musical talent should be appreciated more than the female pop star singer with little clothing. Do you believe a music artist's image (like Justin...

What's more important to you, quantity of life or quality of life?It seems like everyone is only concerned with living longer. Quality of life issues (especially at old age) aren't often discussed. Would you want to be kept alive even if your body couldn't function anymore?
