"Both in the British and American samples, physical attractiveness is significantly, positively associated with general intelligence, both with and without controls for social class, body size, and health," said Dr. Satoshi Kanazawa of the LSE. This could be the result of evolution bringing both beautiful and smart people together. In turn, looks and smarts tend to be passed down to subsequent generations.
Let's not forget, though, there are plenty of wicked smart people who aren't great lookers. They also have wicked smart family members. In essence, there are people of all sorts and types of acumen — yes, even "dumb blondes." In your experience, do you find this beauty and brains connection to be true, or do you call foul on this one?
