    Quite the opposite, wouldn't want to be with someone dumb. Being intelligent and nerdy are two different things however.

    A lot of average or ugly people in their teens become better looking when they grow up.

    that's a cliché. When I was in college there was a girl that got A* A* A* A in her A-levels and she looks exactly like mila kunis but with shorter hair
    Can I be her pls? :ashamed2:

    Not necessarily. I know plenty of attractive smart girls, and by smart it doesn't necessarily mean grades.

    Nope.
    There are plenty of attractive people who are intelligent!!
    As for the popularity aspect. Imtelligent people spend more time becoming intelligent than wasting their time on becoming drunk all the time.
    Therefore they dont hang out wih their friends as much as they have other things to do

    Definitely not. I know plenty of very good looking people who are also very intelligent. There's no correlation.

    Actually, numerous studies has found there to be a slight positive correlation between IQ and attractiveness

    Surprising, given that intelligent people rarely care about their looks.

    The real question is why people have a perception that smart people are ugly.

    I think there is actually a modest correlation between being physically attractive and intelligence, interestingly enough.

    Note, by stating literature I'm not purposefully indirectly blowing my own horn

    Something to do with better looking people being happier, resulting in better academics and more interest in learning due to their success at it. Though not always the case, as on the other hand people as they are unhappy can focus on something, like school work, to take their mind off things and boost their self-esteem.

    Anyone else noticed the people with the best grades don't tend to be the best looking or most popular? Granted most aren't total outcasts either and are usually not hideous but they don't tend to be stunners like most of the popular airheads. Do you guys feel this is true, I know it may be different if you go to a private school but in state schools this seems to be the general rule. Are top universities which don't do dossy courses filled with 5's and 6's?
    Well, your avatar picture would seem to give evidence for this phenomena assuming your name accurately reflects your intellect

    (By the way please don't kill me I'm only joking!!!)
