Looks or Personality?

Okay so for the sake of argument let's pretend people that are both hot and smart don't exist. So if you had to choose between a smoking hot but stupid as hell woman/man or a really ugly woman/man with a personality you find perfect who would you choose?

The study shows that especially the men, look a woman appearance first, and then intelligence, lastly personality. On the other hand, most women consider when they choose thier marriage partner, they look a men academic background first, and then personality, lastly appearance.

I won't lie. I need to be attracted to a woman to at least start a relationship. So far this is how it has been with me.

Also, looks and personality are usually directly related. The best-looking people generally have great personalities.

The opposite is actually true. People with great looks have nothing else to offer. They are often completely sold on themselves and cannot be dragged away from a mirror. The typical super-model has the brains and personality of Paris Hilton.

Fuck it, I just wouldn't talk to her about much.

That's what friends and arts are for, right?

Side: Looks

When you are young, go for the looks. Then when she gets old and ugly and you can't get it up anymore, trade her in for someone with personality ;-)

Yes that is what I told my daughter. I said looks are what is important honey. And size does matter. Guys don't think so...but it does. LOL They will defend their small size anyway they can....but all the action in the world aint worth anything if ya can't feel it. LOL

And when he can't keep it up for very long then toss him out for a younger partner.

No young hot model in the world can do a darn thing with a guy if there is something wrong with his penis.

Here joe.......keep this website handy one day you might need it. LOL

Side: Personality

I knew it! Size does matter! Thank God most doctors are men and we thus have Viagra and thank God young guys don't usually make as much money (a powerful aphrodisiac) as an older guy and they also have little control (compared to an older guy) and thus blow their wad prematurely. Probably why women prefer older guys. But hey..., thanks for the link ;-)

I've been wondering for a while, do you take any argument on this site seriously? Don't get me wrong, I like your somewhat controversial view on things - it's very refreshing, but I'm just curious. ;)

Side: Looks

do you take any argument on this site seriously?

Rarely. I like presenting points of view that are...., warped. And then show that almost anything can be made to sound almost logical. If it weren't so easy to present a warped point of view and make it sound almost logical, Hitler would not have reached the level he reached. And with a little tweaking, he could have gone further. For example..., if only he had decided to kill stupid people instead. But as the original premise already stated..., surely I jest ;)

Side: Looks

I could ask the same for you pizza.

Of course I take some seriously...this one I happen to find humorous so I gave a humorous answer. I do have a sense of humor about some things....now about abortion....I do NOT. That is a subject that is near and dear to my heart. If you look at the list of debates.....come on some are just off the wall stupid.

What do you take seriously?

And what views do you think I have that are controversial? I think I am in the middle of what Americas views are. Hey I think pot should be legal.....but as for pornography, I am against it.

This is always the answer for guys. I blame evolution.

To make if fair though, sexy broke dudes without a personality get laid way less often than ugly interesting millionaire men.

Money was a variable I just added, I'm trying not to make girls look too superficial by adding additional prerequisites. Naturally a girl would never have sex with an ugly interesting dude who wasn't rich unless she too was ugly. (I turned the superficial thing around on them through fallacies if you follow the logic. Luckily any girl who can follow the logic is likely not very sexy, making it at the same time sexist and ironic.)

Shit I'm cool.

Side: Looks

I blame evolution.

I never actually though about it that way, quite interesting. I do agree though; evolution could highly be in the 'blame circle'. ...Not that I'm complaining ;)

Side: Looks

i think it's your personality that really matters. I want a guy who's nice sweet and has respect for a girl and a guy who voices his opinions and thoughts.

I'd say a mixture of both. If the individual in question lacks sexual attractiveness, then there's nothing, whereas if she lacks a tolerable personality, there may be sex every now and then, but nothing more.

Sorry, can't do ugly... the initial attraction is looks since one doesn't know the personality yet.

Personality and knowledge are not interchangeable. Make up your mind one way or another. Personality isn't that important, because it can be changed. Looks, however, cannot be.

Troy.......looks can change. On dancing with the stars there is a fellow dancing whose face is disfigured from the war. JR. He as a good looking fellow before it happened and to me he still he handsome. But for some who thinks looks are what matters they would find him ugly. He only has one ear. Many peoples looks change.....they lose hair, get wrinkles, get fat...etc.

Personalities are more likely to stay....than looks.

You must be really young.

Enough said, without looks, everything is hard. I'm not saying that a person without looks cant do anything, its just that the one with better looks always get the attention first and people will start noticing him. Its not a matter of relationship, it applies to all. With sufficient charm, people will pay more respect( you know i'm right). That's the ugly truth of the world we're living in. For example, the Nixon-Kennedy debate. Radio listeners thought Nixon have won the debate, but strangely people watching the television find the young Kennedy far more charming that the old grumpy Nixon. That's why Kennedy was the most celebrated president, he got looks and skills.

ok. why does nobody speak about prettiness, it is really important. Beuty is an unstable conception. For example I like this girl but you think she is ugly.

Prettiness is a state of mind, a glitter in smb's eyes and the ability to show off.

and soI think that personalite is more impoortant.

Side: Personality

The reason for looks is because, alright let's be honest here what do we "see" first?

A person's looks!! You look at a person's face first, body and whatever else.

To be honest I like to see a pleasant appearance and a face is something you can't change unless you do plastic surgery. So you're genetically with it already, hence while an ugly person it's a turn off to look at them.

Most people I know will still debate on this matter but chyeah it's just like what would you choose beauty or brains?

on regards to a pretty person with no personality, you can always improve someones personality and introduce them to new things or what not. People "always" change.

Intelligence has very little to do with personality. I don't mind if my girl is dumb; her mistakes would amuse me. As long as she is hot/sexy/cute and have a decent personality (repeat: NOT intellect) such as caring, adventurous, open minded, etc etc I have no complains.

Just say that you are stick on an island with two people. One is 'smoking hot' a you put it, and the other has an awesome personality. You start staring at this hot guy (with your mouth open, ofcourse) but eventually get bored because he doesnt seem that interesting. Then you turn around to the ugly ass awsome personality person and both of you start talking about interesting things. At the end of the day, who one? The awesome personality person kept you alive and free of boredom, didnt they? Personality rules!!!!!

I agree with your position, but I have to admit that based on my observation most people would end up spending some quality time with the "hot" person for a few days or weeks before eventually moving in the direction of the interesting person, possibly even maintaining some sort of intimate interaction with the hot person in secret while spending time with the interesting person. In the long run, nature would permit the dumb but good looking specimen to procreate before the interesting ones. Maybe this could be a factor in the excessive amount of dumb uninteresting people in the world.

Most people don't look like supermodels, whether they be guy or girl.

But when you're attracted to someone's personality a lot, they have the potential to become a supermodel in your mind, even if they're totally average or below average.

My wife isn't a supermodel... to everyone that isn't me, that is. I can hardly tell the difference, even if other men could.

No matter how attractive a girl is she can become very ugly very quickly if she's boring and flat. People that don't have personalites don't seem to be "there" you feel alone even when you're with them. A pretty face is only good for showing off to other people, but for mental and spiritual stimulation and growth personality will always take it.

It depends entirely on the situation for me.

If I am looking for a fling, I'll pick the hot one. ESPECIALLY if they have a nice derrière and are energetic… who wants a dead fish in the sack?

If I am looking for a long term the person would have to be very interesting (also with a nice derrière, what can I say? I have an obsession... she can be a ‘butter face’ I don’t care, but she's gotta have a nice ass)

Spending four years with my ex-wife who was good looking and good in bed but not interesting and dumb as FUCK has shown me exactly what I need in a girl, and one thing is certain: personality is far more important in my opinion. In fact, I have come to discover that the more I like a person’s personality, the more their outward appearance doesn’t matter or the more physically attracted I am to them, et vice versa.

Side: Personality

I tend to go for personality. It’s always wonderful when you can find someone who is good looking, but when it boils down to it, what is really going to matter is the personality of the person you’re with. No wonder that when somebody wants long-term relationships its not important for him how a person looks. Look only attracts people attention, but what really captures is personality.

Side: Personality

well i think both! you can't just look at the personality of the person but he would be so damn ugly and you can't be attracted to someone for his looks but his personality is down the gutter! i think both are related! you can't take this and leave that they both are dispensable! 0.o

Side: ummm both

I would have to agree and say both as well. Don't get me wrong but I know I'm not looking at someone who happens to be unattractive. And I know I am not the only one who thinks the samething. Personality is a plus that comes with looks. If someone looks attractive to me and their personality doesn't match up with their looks then thats very unattractive. But if you have both good looks and great personality then that just makes you beautiful inside and out. However, personality does count the most, I mean who would want to be with someone with a personality that sucks?

I would absolutely see personality more important then looks. The reason is very simple that personality is inborn and invaluable. In fact, plastic surgery is very popular right now. If you don't satisfy your appearance, you could do an surgery for your ideal fact. On the other hand, we couldn't make up any personality because it is inborn. There is a say that "Having a good personality can lend you to be success."

Really... A person who looks just fabulous but gives no shit bout me? Is no one who would deserve me. I'd rather have a peaceful life with someone who may be just little darker or with blunt features and a little too what the World calls Ugly than to spend my life with asshole Bastard who has nothing more than himself to offer to me.

And I'd also like someone to like me not because he finds me hot, but because I can guarantee that he will like me even when my attractive traits wear off!

Eeryone can be physically attractive in their own way, so the sexuality problem is solved. There is only the matter of personality. Regardless of how physically beautiful a person is, if their personality is ugly, the bad vibes given off is enough to cancel out their good looks, even in the sack! And wouldn't a gentle caring guy be more pleasure inducing than a jerk-off?

I think that personality is the greatest thing in a person it makes him strong brave and loved by people for being him self, beauty is not everything, what if you found a beautiful person and soon you find out he's/she's a lair and she talk about you behinds your back, your personality is the real you NOT YOUR LOOK your personality reflects whats in your heart, beauty is not with big deal, maybe her face is fake ?? she had done surgeries or put tons of makeup to look pretty, the point is personality never change, since your face could be change,
