Brains and beauty usually go hand-in-hand?

16
A new study dispels the myth that good-looking people are dumber than bad-looking people. Instead, the study shows that good-looking people tend to have higher IQ and do better academically than those who don't look as good.

It can be argued that IQ and academic performance is not representative of intelligence. Maybe they do better in school because teachers and other students are more willing to help or work in teams with them.

So if brains and beauty go together, why do pageant contestants in Singapore always give dumb answers in the Q&A segments? Because the good-looking and smart people usually aren't dumb enough to join those contests!

Yu-Kym,

I completly agree!

One only has to look carefully at families and friends to realize that there are many ordinary looking people who are of intelligence and a few who simply could not figure their way out of a paper sack.

The sad thing about some beautiful people is that they use the beauty part only, and do not develop their brains or other talents.

David, perhaps because there are more ordinary-looking people around and showing that one has both beauty and brains incites jealousy.

Yu-Kym,

Excellent observation.

It would be interesting to know which type of person, (ordinary looking or less attractive) are more envious of someone who has beauty and brains.

The truly beautiful and smart are not arrogant when it comes to flaunting beauty. As this type of person knows beauty comes from the heart, and anything else is a physical manifestation of what is in a persons heart.

This I think is what makes some ordinary people look very attractive!

It takes all kinds to make the world go round. But for me if given the choice, I'd rather have round me the beauts with the brains. I am not a hypocrite.

Sillyporeans are stupid - confirmed by MM LEE.

On today's ST, he said "IF SINGAPORE does not grow as fast as it can sustain growth, then the government - and its people - are being stupid, according to Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew."

- There you go!

On ST, it reported NUS student wearing T-shirts saying "I dare to eat alone"!

How silly can this be?! What is wrong with eating alone.

The next T-shirt they print will say "I dare to wank in public"

Bravo!

It is reported on ST today that MM said fenshiu is shit! Quote "MM Lee: Fengshui is 'utter rubbish'"

Let us see whether the knife perched on top of the 3 tomb stones will finish him off for good!

Hey silli comic,

It doesnt bother MM and it doesnt bother me coz we dont believe in all these knife and 3 tombstones stuff.

But it does reveal your angst against all you call "sillipore and silliporeans". It also reveal the kind of lowdown human...hmmmm..no!..animal you are when you curse decent ppl the way you do.

That is why you yourself have been knifed and tombstones occurring in your mind all these while which manifests in your current angst.

You are the one suffering these exact curses you mouthed my silli friend. And you dont know it! You are so pitiful and pathetic. You must be rotting in your own hell everyday to behave the way you do. lol

ST reported MM LEE proclaimed that Sillyporeans need to grow up!

Well, what is wrong with behaving like a kid when you are 50 years old?!

NUS students meanwhile, to prove that they have grown up, will wear T-shirts proclaiming "We dare to bonk in public".

Hey silli comic

There's nothing wrong with a 50yr old behaving like a kid. There are times to behave like one and there are other times where one has to behave grown up.

But you silli comic behave like a kid all through your 50yrs and beyond!

You do not ever grow up. For that matter you do not grow at all. lol

Hey silli comic,

I am surprised that you finally said something sensible. And that is..."what is wrong with eating alone?"

Except that when you eat alone all the time, then that is something to chew about.

However having said that, if being a loner causes no one no harm, then pls you do your own thing if you are comfortable eating alone, others do theirs.

Silli comic, you mean MM? Silli cat?

Hey Silli comic, you are such a dumbdumb! lol You must have suffered a lot under MM huh? Were you sued bankrupt and shamed in court under cross examination by MM's lawyers? Were you found out and heavily fined for trying to cheat the tax authorities? Were you kicked out of your rental HDB flat for misusing it as a brothel? Or did all your angst against MM started out much earlier when you were so stupig in your studies and were caught cheating during your primary school exams or peeping up a girl's skirt during your secondary days and caned in public? I guess as much coz all your miseries started as soon as you opened your mouth to speak and your brain started to so-called "function" coz this country u called sillipore and its people u called silliporeans dont take too kindly to your shameless kind. lol
