When you see worldwide studies that say that a beautiful person earns more than an ugly person, I can´t help asking myself the following question- What is more important in life to be inteligent or beautiful? Please share your thoughts on this matter

I think both are good, I feel that a persons insides are more imporant than anything else. I say that meaning their soul. To me you can have all the smarts and looks you want but if you are cold hearted and car only of youself than all that does not matter. I know this apporach might be odd to some but this is how I feel about it. I feel this should spark some people and I hope more people take the time to respond to this discussion. Happy mylotting to you and have a great day online!

Innerbeauty more importan than else,although its powered by other factors such beautiful body.we meet and speak with other with inner beauty,so do they. The point is both are good but our insides more important. Happy posting;)

Hi there ilgattofelice99, I can assume that this gonna be very long to describe what i thing about this matter. I have ugly friends and beautyful friend. A smart friend also dummies. The more longer you make friends with them the more you notice how a character been influence by performance and the mind too. But all that doesn't matter when the person ruining with one or two bad or negative act, or even worse continues negativity, as a human when we try once and works, it is a nature to try to do that again. How beauty doesn't matter if all she do is use it to get what her want easily. How dummies doesn't matter when she really have pure helful heart. How smart doesn't matter when it used for masking a trap. How ugly doesn't matter when he's got lot's of money Joking!! My point is, Every part influence the other.

If you mean physical beauty versus intelligence, then I say both. But if beauty includes the whole personality - in and out - then I would say beauty. It would be perfect though to be beautiful and intelligent at the same time. I am confused though why you come to compare intelligence and beauty using those worldwide studies as premise. As I've heard, those findings were based solely on the physical aspects of person and nothing were said about IQ. Actually, beautiful people are also often looked at as more trusted than ugly ones.
