Is beauty more important than brains in today's society?

  • It shouldn't be, but it is.

    This is a simple question of what our society is really like.

    As cavemen and women, we were programmed by nature to find partners who appeared to be in good health. Good health meant surviving offspring meant preservation of our species.

    That happens to be why we don't like the look of the obese or disabled. It's not because they are inherently ugly, it's because the layout of our brain chooses to evoke such a perception due to our natural history.

  • Misinterpreted of Text

    Anyone who voted no has misinterpreted the question at hand. The question asks, in a more explained format, "Is beauty considered more important-" or "Is beauty overemphasized-" ... I would also try not to forget the key part of the question "in today's society" ...

    I believe looks have been overemphasized in today's society and intelligence is often faced with hostility.

  • Intellect = stunning

    Although being alluring may seem better, being intelligent takes the win. Why would someone want a bimbo with no manners or self-respect when they could have a graceful, brilliant women who knows her self worth. Sadly, society has seem to find a way to make people contradict that. How tragic.

  • Beauty is is one of the more important things in today's society, no matter how much we all want to disagree.

    Sadly, in this day and age, people with more beauty are taken more seriously, and our society tends to look at beautiful people to guide us in decisions. For example, advertisements with more aesthetically pleasing people tend to get more people buying the product. People view each other based off of how we look instead of getting to know us when they first meet, since beauty is what is seen first. Beauty tends to get you farther in life, and as beauty progresses we tend to stop making decisions for the good of us and blindly trust in those around us, especially when they are aesthetically pleasing. More jobs are appearing in today's age, such as models, actors, and other show jobs that value beauty over other qualities, so theoretically, if you have beauty then your life may be as successful as that of an average-looking person with a very high intellect.

  • Beauty all the way

    The fact of life is that if two people go into an interview with the same qualifications but one is better looking they are always going to choose the better looking person. If you are well dressed and good-looking you are seen as more trustworthy. People will also take your first impression and how well you carry yourself in consideration when they first meet you. They won’t care about how smart you are when they first meet you. Studies show that attractive people are more likely to be employed, be approved for loans, and earn 3-4% more than the average looking people.

  • Beauty is better than brains

    It is all about the looks now a days. If your ugly you get disowned. People judge you on how you look not how smart you are. Your classified as a nerd when your smart but if you are beautiful than everyone loves you and your popular. Beauty in today's society is way better than brains

  • Beauty Trumps Bains! Sorry!

    Even if only at first and even though everybody knows looks will fade pretty soon---BEAUTY WILL CARRY THE MASSES and allow undeserved privileges to go to the one who is beautiful. It has always been this way and always will be...As totally wrong and unfair as it truly is.Test it yourself and be honest...Would a guy choose a Rhianna, or say, an Amy Schuler to hang and have sex with? Brad Pitt or Adam Sandler? And so would YOU if you are honest enough to say so.........

  • Today is still as it was before

    You can not get rich or powerful with a real job with out a brain. The only job you can get with beauty is to become a stupid actor who lives in California doing nothing but acting knowing nothing about real life. Though all rich people with a real job like Donald trump and even Rockeller who made much money buy using his brain to itimidate and destroy their competition. They became rich and more powerful than the president

  • Nope. Brains better.

    I have personal experience on both sides.

    I lived in a place where I was a handsome devil, and then for reasons I moved to a different culture where I'm not considered that good looking. I got used to it.

    I used to go a a crap school where I was a genius in everything do, then I moved to some high end school and I was just above average. Still can't get over it.

  • For most people no.

    In the movies and TV and certain professions, e.G., modeling, beauty is more important.

    Many in society place too much emphasis on beauty. And, the movie and TV industries push it. Many are wrapped up in looking good because of this, especially women. Many refuse to grow old naturally and have lots of plastic surgery to make them look younger. Eight Billion is spent annually on cosmetics and over and over $15 Billion on plastic surgery.

    Brains will always be more important and you usually get paid more the based on your educational level, i.E., college grads usually make more than high school grads.

    What is really important is being an honest, sensitive, empathetic and loving person.

  • What will you be remembered by?

    Beauty is fleeting. People may be attracted to you because of your looks, but if there is no depth behind your pretty face, then I doubt that they will want to stick around you for extremely long. Do you truly think that you are going to change the world or be remembered by your beauty? I don't think so.

  • I strongly disagree that beauty is more important that intelligence

    Undoubtedly intelligence is more important than beauty simply because it just is. In today's society there is a great emphasis placed on being brilliant and succeeding in all aspects of life, particularly education wise. Beauty isn't only skin deep and after a while it will fade. What exactly would you have to show for yourself in the long run when the looks have vanished and you didn't focus on your education and didn't achieve anything? Oh you could show people the pictures of when you weer younger yes and smile at the good old days, but is that what you really want to be remembered for? Looks can only carry you so far, they are important yes but at the same time it should not be the main focus

  • Lol no. .

    Think about it this way instead? It is your birthday and you were given a present by your parents. What do you think you would like better? The wrapping paper, or the contents inside? The contents inside right? But then what would you do with the wrapping paper? Lol Tf
