    Beauty and Brains Do Go Together: Study Claims Good-Looking Men and Women Have Higher IQs

    Daily Mail (Britain)

    Handsome men and women often appear to be blessed with lucky lives. Now research has shown they are cleverer than most people as well. Studies in Britain and America have found they have IQs 14 points above average. The findings dispel the myth of the dumb blondes or good-looking men not being very bright. It appears that those already physically blessed attract partners who are not just good looking but brainy too, according to research by the London School of Economics. The children of these couples will tend to inherit both qualities, building a genetic link over successive generations between them.

    That explains why I am so intellectually challenged! I never could figure it out.

    GREAT thread. The outer reflects the inner! This is a HUGE anti-reality propaganda target for Jewish media outlets.

    I have found that the most intelligent women I've known were rather pretty, and the least intelligent were rather vulgar. It makes sense, but there is one exception for me. My advanced abstract algebra professor was a genius, and he looked like a gargoyle crossed with a bloody elephant, but he was a Jew.

    in Jensen's estimation, heritability of IQ was over 0.7 of the within-race IQ variability, and the 0.3 left over was due to non-shared environmental influences.

    This is rude to put these statistics together but when we have people in the media saying "race doesn't exist, there are no differences between populations, race is only skin deep"- I cannot resist.

    It was not a genius
    We must be educated in our books & family. We must train hard. We must shoot true & straight. We must carry on our name & heritage. We must protect our women. We will win.

    Hmm, interesting study :]

    I think the stereotype of ugly/smart and pretty/stupid derives from superficial evaluation.

    Usually someone who is fairly intelligent to super genius is not going to be as concerned with their appearance and, therefore, not fit into the social norm of what's considered 'beautiful'. However, someone who is always focusing on their appearance is probably not going to be a book nerd, as they wouldn't have the interest or time (after all, looks can buy anything), and they may not be naturally attractive.

    As for real, natural attractiveness, I can see why this study would be true. But usually the smartest girls/guys I've ever known have looked the part of geeks with glasses and unkempt appearance (Einstein, for example). I mean if you look at Stephen Hawking, it's enough to tell you that the brain department won't always win a beauty pageant lol.

    They must have tested people based on their true, natural given attractiveness level.

    Is this based on IQ scores? That is nowhere close to being a legitimate means by which to judge true genius!
    Beethoven and Mozart could hardly qualify as being natural-born pretty boys.
    Does this make them freaks based on modern studies of the deeply flawed IQ test?
