Knowledge is not the same as intelligence.
If a person just wanted beauty from a partner, they could buy a blow-up friend. If they want a soul mate, a creative lover and a trusted confidante, there is no substitute for a good brain. I want a relationship with the whole, intelligent person - not just an obsession with their outer layer of skin. And I would never want a partner who was obsessed with their own concept of beauty. If they love themselves that much, there is no space left for me.
afcourse most People are just hypocritical. They say that inner beauty is more important than outer beauty, and then the media goes insane over beautiful, famous singers, models, actresses etc.
"But not everyone can be beautiful"
If you're referring to natural beauty, then I agree. However if you aren't, then I disagree. Everyone that has money can be beautiful, just go get plastic surgery and put on makeup and you pretty much look like a celebrity.
So to answer your question, "is beauty better than brains?"
I wouldn't say it's "better" because there are a lot of pretty people out there that aren't even celebrities or make millions of dollars in a job. They have regular jobs just like any other average or ugly looking person. Although, I will say that it is generally noticeable that beautiful people have it easier than ugly people, whether that be socializing, finding a job, getting around, basically anything that has to do with human interaction. People have the magnetic tendency to grow fond to those who are beautiful. Not only that, but we also have the tendency to remember more information about them.
In short, my answer is that it's not better. A balance between beauty and brains is the best option for success.
Beautiful with no brains = You will probably get in trouble a lot because of your tendency to do stupid things by media influence. i.e. Drugs, drinking and driving
Brains with no beauty = Can be successful but you'd need to be VERY intelligent to come up with a new idea, invention, etc.
So god help me get through to these people.
