I’ve never much cared for this question. I mean, if one was extremely intelligent and less attractive, to what extreme is this “less attractive” look? Who says they’re less attractive? By societies standards? Also, if one really wanted to be up to societies standards of attractiveness, there’s also plastic surgery. Not that I’m saying one should get plastic surgery just because they’re less attractive, but it’s always an option. See, it’s a catch 22. If I say one over the other, there’s always something to comment about the way I perceive it. Does it make one a more shallow person if one says they’d rather be extremely attractive over being intelligent? What’s not to say that a person couldn’t overcome their being less intelligent? Who’s saying they’re less intelligent? Tests? Ba humbug to standardized testing!
I never felt I was very intelligent growing up due to the fact I struggled understanding math. Then, in a remedial college math class, it clicked. Finally, I understood math! After all those years struggling to understand it, I understood it! It felt so good.
Could not a less intelligent person somehow learn in a way to become more intelligent? Even those that have an actual disability in learning many times has other qualities about them that they’re able to let shine.
If one is extremely attractive, one could excel in acting or modeling and make it in life. As for being extremely intelligent, one could succeed in life by being a scientist, mathematician, doctor, or researcher, for example.
