Is there a correlation between being ugly and intelligent? Are smart people just inherently dumber?

Ugly people are more productive because they don’t have social appeal

Probably. That's why he died a virgin

No, he died a virgin because he was intelligent and realized the futility of all sexual pursuits compared to intellectual ones.

What did he mean by this?

Also no, good-looking people are more intelligent on average. Though I would guess unattractive people are more prone to COPE and thus invest their energy into largely useless bullshit like STEM.

I am smart because I am stupid, meaning that because of my lack of intelligence I can only afford to say smart things. Thus I am smart despite being inherently dumb.

In my experience it's actually the other way around. Beautiful people are consistently more intelligent, Good genes beget good genes.

Reason for this is that intelligence is highly correlated with income which means that throughout human society the most beautiful women got bred with the most intelligent guys meaning that in our generation the most beautiful people are on average also the most intelligent people.

It's also true in the other direction. Ugly people are consistently dumber.

Now why are mathematicians generally ugly? Because most intelligent people that actually possess true intelligence tend to not focus on one field but instead act machiavellian and worm their way through whatever path gives them the best return at that moment.

The best example I can think of is Merkel. She is a nuclear scientist with a PhD. She did that because she grew up in communist eastern Germany and knew that that was the best way to rise to prominence within that communist system. Once Germany got reunited she immediately jumped on politics because she knew that was a far more lucrative posititon to find yourself in. And now she is the German Chancellor and de-facto leader of the entire European Union.

People that go into mathematics are the opposite of this. Socially retarded people that have a very narrow intelligence that they need to exploit to try and climb as high as possible instead of using pragmatism and machiavellianism to rise to the top using all possible avenues of life.

Most of the time I would assume it's because they are more passionate about the subject they research than how they look. As iconic as he looked, Einstein had some ugly hair that he could have kept kempt if he really wanted to.

>> No.10378621

I genuinely think that if Einstein didn't have his hair he wouldn't be as popular right now with normies. The only thing setting him apart from bland scientists that are more noteworthy like Von Neumann is that he looked iconic.

Don't bully Kaisa, she does wonderfull mathematics. The reason that you see this "correlation" is a statistical quirk. Either people are famous because they are so good looking, think of movie stars, or theyre famous because they achieved something intellectual. You won't ever notice people that are dumb and ugly, creating the illusion of negative correlation. This phenomenon has a name but it escapes me now.

>Is there a correlation between being ugly and intelligent?
No. Take a random sample of the population and judge their physical appearance. You just don't know what the average person looks like. Mental retards tends to be the most ugly.

They're not "below average", they're totally average looking. You're just really overestimating the physical attractiveness of the "average" man

Honestly these paintings never do the subject any favours. For Newton to look even that good in such a painting means he must have been quite the looker
