Beautiful people don't just get all the breaks, scientists say they're likely smarter than most people, too.
A study in England conducted by researchers at the London School of Economics found that attractive men and women generally have higher IQs.
"Physical attractiveness is significantly positively associated with general intelligence," said LSE lead researcher Satoshi Kanazawa, in the latest issue of the journal, Intelligence.
The study indicated attractive men have IQs that are 13.6 points above the average, while beautiful women are 11.4 points higher than average.

Um well.......like the Iraq...........and get maps for students.........this is a crock.
Then how does one explain the Hollywierd crowd?................
I know I am
There go all those dumb blonde jokes... unless this is junk science!
There is no explaining the Hollyweird crowd.
Beauty is highly subjective and the article doesn’t really explain the study, so - yes - junk science.
But of course, darlink!
On the other hand, my wife certainly fits that profile.
Sorry.... not buying it. I have seen the kids in our Gifted and Talented schools. I think they are all beautiful but they are not “Hollywood’s” version of beautiful. Intelligence and societal accepted concepts of beauty are two different things IMHO.
Guess I was wrong.
Don’t confuse intelligence with common sense.
Some of the smartest people I know are dumb as a post when it comes to day to day life (especially life on the streets)
I was a loser dope smoker when I was young- striaightened out my act and went to college for 3 degrees- physics, computer science, and accounting.
So I know everything about everything, now. :)
And what I know most is how stupid smart liberals are. The saying “liberalism is child-like sentiment applied to adult problems” is the most accurate statement. And it is a mental desease in that they are hard to cure of that.
This study sounds like someone just trying to turn the “dumb blonde” assertion on its head. I would think that there would be absolutely no correlation between innate intelligence and physical appearance. How does someone’s face effect their brain? To make this study valuable, the assertions would have to remain true for all humans. Yet physical beauty is discerned in different ways in different cultures. What most Westerners consider beautiful may not be what is considered attractive in Africa, for example. Also, what would be the connection? It is like saying someone with blue eyes is more intelligent than someone with brown eyes. Remember that famous test? Perhaps people who are attractive have more self esteem and answered the questions more confidently. Silly test and one for the eugenics books.
My personal experience proves the findings to be accurate.
Henry Kissinger is an evil bad man, though bright, yes. Just like the pastor said the other Sunday “Brilliant people in Washington writing legislation to take us out from God’s jurisdiction.”
“Life isn’t fair!”
The picture they show (can't post here) bears that out. Those two look fairly average to me.
Doctors and lawyers are some of the dumbest people I have known when it comes to common sense, everyday stuff.
They spend all their formative years in school becoming doctors and lawyers to the exclusion of everything else, unless they had a rock solid parental upbringing where they could learn from their parents about everyday stuff they are usually clueless about.............
