Are Beautiful People More Intelligent?

Posted on
Beautiful people smarter?

“Brains are hot.”

A new study that was researched in both America and the UK suggests that physical attractiveness is tied closely to intelligence. Handsome men averaged about 13 points over the average IQ, and beautiful women scored a little over 11 points higher than average.

Lead researcher Satoshi Kanazawa said: “In the samples, physical attractiveness is significantly positively associated with general intelligence, both with and without controls for social class, body size and health. The association between physical attractiveness and general intelligence is also stronger among men than among women.”

Over 52,000 Brits and Americans were measured on their academic performance and intellect, as well as scored on their appearance. It should be noted, that the study is merely statistical, and can’t be applied on an individual basis.

The study points to a Darwinistic backbone. If  success, intelligence, and looks are used to achieve status as a man, those traits would obviously be desirable by beautiful women, and therefor hereditarily passed through to the couple’s children.

Finally, Kanazawa added, “It goes without saying that our contention that beautiful people are more intelligent is purely scientific. It is not a prescription for how to treat or judge others.” So be nice!

    13 points is within the margin of error for most IQ tests. and the difference between a 100 IQ and a 113 IQ is negligible.

    Paris Hilton is a genius. Okay, well not a genius but she definitely is not stupid. Every day she sends out a memo to the press of where she’s going to be and then plans out plans a different outfit, from her own line, to were to each place she’s going to be at. Shoot, when she got out of jail she turned it into a private red carpet event. She knows how to own the press, unlike other celebs who go crazy from it (Britney).
