Study Shows Beautiful People Are Also Smarter
Remember the movie Revenge Of The Nerds, where the ugly dork gets the hot chick in the end? (If you haven't seen it, you need to rent it cuz it's hilarious.) Well, turns out that's not so far from the truth.
These beautiful and smart people are reporducing and now now pretty/smart people are taking over the world.
Clearly these women are geniuses.
Not really, but Studies in Britain and America have found that good-looking people have IQs 14 points above average.
For instance Cambridge student and Super Model Lily Cole. She's got beauty and brains to boot.
Then there's English actress Kate Beckinsale who was discovered while a student at Oxford.
The ladies can't seem to get enough of British particle physicist Brian Cox. He's a Royal Society University Research Fellow and a professor at the University of Manchester. Not only that but he's a member of the High Energy Physics group at the University of Manchester AND works on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider, CERN, near Geneva, Switzerland. Hot!
Worst of all... handsome men are smarter than handsome women... the study took a look at about 52,000 people from the US and the UK and found that attractive men had IQs 13.6 points higher than average, while the attractive women were only 11.4 points higher than the general population.
And how does this happen? The study's authors figure that smarter men are more successful, thus more likely to attract beautiful women. The couple's offspring then inherit the best of both worlds. Beauty AND brains and the horrible cycle continues.
Lead researcher Satoshi Kanazawa, says that the study is "purely scientific," and not "a prescription for how to treat or judge others." Oh great, it's just cold hard scientific fact I guess. No reason to treat ugly people like they're dumber than you, even though science proves that they are.
What do you think about this study? Is it total BS or do you think there's something to it?
