    Highly intelligent with average looks if I was male, and highly gorgeous with average brains if I was female. Women's power is largely dependent upon their aesthetic value (i.e. how attractive they are), whereas a man's power is dependent on far more than just how attractive he is.

    Very intelligent with average looks for both.

    I value intelligence far higher than looks. Who wants to be beautiful but barely able to string a sentence together? Certainly not me!

    Intelligent with average looks for both. Looks fade.

    Though I'm okay if my partner was very intelligent with average looks

    Intelligence means pretty much nothing in the grand scheme of things. Very intelligent doesn't mean a great personality. I think I could relate to someone of average intelligence than someone who's super intelligent.

    I'd pick the first choice if I want to smurf them, but if I want to have a long term relationship I'd pick the second.

    gorgeous with an average brain.. i get intimidated by overly intelligent people, and i'm not amazingly clever myself, so i doubt we'd have much to talk about.

    although if he was gorgeous, i'd worry that i wasn't good enough and that he'd run off with someone else..

    ohh.. i dunno. average brain, average looks. there wasn't an option for that, but it's what i choose.

    Average intelligence is all I would really care about in a girl. Being a complete idiot I would find annoying, but so long as they can understand you and talk about stuff then that's fine so average and gorgeous please.

    People of average intelligence are able to string a sentence together.

    Gorgeous with average brains. Being intelligent doesn't makes someone a nice person. I value sense of humour, empathy, and creativity more than a high IQ.

    Even I am impressed with my shallow answer but I'm already average at everything and if I had to choose I would pick better looks since I don't think being more intelligent will add anything more for me to be happier. It's all about being happy anyway.
