It is said that these two seldom go together, that one can't really have it all. Of course, there are few who are blessed with both...but if you were to choose, which one would you rather have? Which one seems more appealing to you?

My vote would surely go to 'intelligence'. To me intelligence of a person is more important than his/her looks. Looks are temporary, they may fade one day, but 'intelligence' is permament and will take a person a long way in his life. By the way I feel that I look handsome and am bit intelligent too.........LOL!

Ha ha, thanks for your cute response. I guess I won't argue with the way you feel about yourself. Intelligence is far more important than we sometimes perceive it to be, true, it really goes a long way.

Hello...that comment was flattering, thank you. It won't be that bad to have a little of both, I guess, than to be extremely good looking but... I am not in the position, however, to agree nor to accept that (that you are not lucky)comment as true or correct, for I have not even seen you. If it were true, then, the fact that you have embraced such imperfection makes it almost perfect.

Good looks all day long, as long as they last all my life. LOL. I mean, people treat good looking people differently/better. You can get away with much more in life without having to think about it. Very few of us are blessed with both, as I am...LOL (That is major sarcasm).

Yes, I agree with that...people tend to be nicer to people who look better. That's a sad fact of life...Life, most of the times, is easier for those who look good, be it in school, or work. Thanks for taking the time to respond.

Neither...ability to communicate with ME, is what I would opt for.

To me its much more attractive to have a good intellect 'than to be apretty boy or pretty woman. good looks fade over time but a keen mind stands anyone in good stead. To be able to think,and reason, and be tops in your career field outweighs any good looks.If you have both the smarts'and the good looks hurray but it you are avedrage in looks but'if you are very intelligent you can run circles around others in competition for your job..

Yes, indeed, one's ordinary look could be turned to be not-so-ordinary by one's wit and intelligence. Thanks for your response.

Hello lingli, you have made a good point. Thanks for taking the time to respond. I guess your level of intelligence is more than OK. Have a nice day too.

Hi Weng-I think intelligence is best because you are able to learn more from those from them they are also normally quite funny-good looks don't always count as those people can also be very vain and critical-your friend littleowl

Hello littleowl...yes, sometimes, good looking people tend to be carried away and that they end up being too vain, too conscious of how they look. Thanks for your response.

I would choose someone who is pleasant to look at and to be with. What i mean is someone who even with a smile or the curious or naughty look can change the way you feel especially when you are down. Intellgience is relative here. It would be nice to have someone who compliments my inteligience with thier own rather than compete with it.

Hello,weng!Usually every body gives importance to good looks.when one is going to marry a girl what he would see in him.obviously the good look.i always go with good look and not intelligence.intelligence can be cultivated with readings various books and novels.specially in the marriage market girls with good look have heavy demand.thanx.

Thanks for being honest, those are the few advantages of being beautiful. There's so much more. However, being intelligent has its own perks too. Thanks for your response...have a great day.

as a man, intelligence is much more important. i don't know what are the women's opinion. but i think they could pay more attention to their appearance. but as we know, the appearance is not as important as the heart.if there is a girl who is shallow and stupid, we'll pay no attention to her, no matter how beautiful she is. but if there is a girl who is kind hearted and wise, we 'll respect her, no matter how ugly she is.

It is refreshing to learn from a man that beauty is not that important. Women, even those with good looks, appreciate it more when they get noticed not for their looks, but for their wit or intelligence. Thanks for taking the time to respond.

Good looks never last. Intelligence is a better choice for me. With it you can earn money and make yourself look better. Look at those extreme makeover show. They can literally turn a ugly duckling into a swan. So if you are intelligent , you will make yourself a better person in life.

Well, you have a good point there. I just wonder how it feels like looking at the mirror seeing a different person (in terms of looks)...but then, an intelligent person would be intelligent enough to easily accept that, I guess. Thanks for your response LilyPad.

What makes the good looks,intelligence is the very important for life, having good looks they may have get good people or good family, not having good looks thay may get any things with intelligence, I had seen this with many people. I am totally support the Intelligence.

I would choose good looks as intelligence is by far the more easily attainable of the two choices. And, as is quite often true, good-looking people are more successful than those who aren't good looking.

well in my own opinion i better choose intellegence than looks,, well looks is useful but time comes and we dont know what will happen looks will gone anytime but intellegence never unless you get amnisia.... but it is seldom to happpen ofcourse .... intellegence compare to beauty to a person ... an intellegence person can change his way of living in life .. everything well change and even people change the way the look up you or treat you. looks are not important anymore

I am really not sure, but I guess that I would have to go with intelligence.. I would have preferred to have the option of choosing between good looks, intelligence, morals, values.. I would choose morals and values first and foremost..

good heart and love is better than intelligent and good look
