    probably extremely intelligent and average looking, average looking people still find people to love them.
    I agree.
    I would rather be extremely intelligent and average looking.
    Average looking people still do fine in life- they still find people to love them etc.
    With being extremely intelligent, you can go on to do really well job wise, and make something really good of yourself.

    Well I'm already extremely, extremely intelligent, so I would probably say very good-looking as well. But I have been told by many/I personally think that I am very attractive. *Cue jealous people negging me*

    intelligent surely if your stunning your have everybody turning heads, worshipping the ground you walk on and everybody wanting to know you but what happens when your looks fade?? or even how do you know a person is really with you for you not just because your the best looking girl/boy that everybody wants to be with? youd also feel a need to always be the best looking

    Id much rather be clever make something of my life, meet new people and then have somebody love me for me

    Wasn't a joke. I'm intelligent, attractive, rich and well-educated. What more is there to ask for?

    Not 'extremely', though - not by a long stretch. It's not the same as being like the people I named above, which I assumed the OP meant when they said 'extremely'.
    If intelligence is anything to do with potential, then you certainly have every potential to be like Hitchens/Barnes.

    Both attended Oxford. You are at Oxford.

    Extremely intelligent - you're likely to be remembered for the things you did, not what you looked like. Besides intelligence lasts longer than beauty, generally.

    Hmm, I think I have to disagree there. One of the things one has to cope with at Oxford is the inevitability of there being people who are simply on a different intellectual level.

    Anyway, I think this is a little off topic. I think we can both agree that it is infinitely better to be extremely intelligent than extremely good-looking.

    Intelligence for sure.



    A bit disheartening that so many people are opting for the other option, but then most people are ****ing worthless so whatever.

    I'd much rather be extremely intelligent as then I could put it to good use in helping other people or whatever I decide to apply myself in. As much as I'd love myself to be better looking, looks degenerate over time and I think some girls might devalue who I am because they're going out with me due to my looks - whereas if I was intelligent and average looking then girls would go out with me because I'm an all rounded person (assuming that they can bear my looks).

    Extremely intelligent. I find myself far more envious of Christopher Hitchens and Julian Barnes than David Beckham and Zac Efron.
    mind you, Beckham hasn't done to bad for himself and seems to have grown in intelligence over the years...

    As a general rule, anyone who chooses appearance over intelligence is already a dimwit.
