beautiful people are more intelligent…

…at least according to kanazawa, altho i’m not 100% persuaded by this latest study he refers to (precisely ’cause of the poss ‘halo effect’ he refers to)…

…but are intelligent people more beautiful?

i dunno about that. just look at the last 10 winners of the nobel prize in physics. smart guys the lot of them. really smart. über smart! but it’s gotta be admitted, none of them are george clooneys or brad pitts:

andre geim & konstantin novoselov

charles kao, willard boyle & george smith

yoichiro nambu, makoto kobayashi & toshihide maskawa

albert fert & peter grünberg

now none of these guys is particularly bad looking, but their looks do not scale with their iqs.

just sayin’.
