So the definition of "intelligence" on these boards is:

"people who think the same way as I do" ?

Who parrot the same thoughts back at me, act as a mirror of my own preconceived thoughts?

that's almost the opposite of real intelligent conversation/interaction to my way of thinking..

No, it's not "JUST" about physical attributes..

but it sure isn't "just" about mental/intellectual attributes, either..

Come on, how many of you women would give Stephen Hawking a fair chance?? (HONESTLY)

I think his IQ is around 190-200, but in a wheelchair..?

hmmmm..

What makes sense to my mind, I accept with bearing in mind that we all have different capacity for understanding, different ability for perceiving and also different ability for comprehending.
Yes, intelligence can be measured but why would I like to do that?! To prove something? To whom? To me?
What does not makes sense - turns into quest.

Excuses stem from varied sources and in my opinion they have a bit of hidden negative ingredients. Who tends to make many excuses does not make any steps forward.
Stagnation in any aspect of life is not appealing (to me).
To surrender? PoF existence gives answer to it.
As for 'aching limbs' - to enrich your mind & body too - one has to i.e climb the mountain and enjoy & absorb physically and mentally all what comes along.

I hope it makes sense.

No, that's not my definition of intelligence. That was my reasoning for why the posts in this topic are overwhelmingly pro 'intelligence is sexy'. Mind you, I didn't say "Only intelligent people are posting." What I said is that people who believe that intelligence is sexy are the ones who are more likely to post. I made no value judgment about whether it was intelligent or not to think that way. I know and enjoy a LOT of very intelligent people who don't think the same way I do.

In fact, I don't think preference for one thing over another has anything to do with a person's intelligence at all. Getting turned on by red hair has nothing to do with how smart the guy getting turned on is, and honestly, neither does getting turned on by intelligent people.

perfect sense, and I agree with your point about stagnation...my uncle (who is in his late 70's) still says my aunt is the sexiest woman he knows, because evry day she says something that gives him pause to think, and because she knows him as well as he knows himself. I aspire to find that.

I'm normally a pretty harsh ****, and only a guy with a startling intellect can put me in my place :D. I get really intimidated when I meet someone whose capacities surpass mine.

Phyneliquor, I want to say that Jessica Simpson has her moments when she does look hot. But I do not find her that attractive and she annoys the hell out of me on her show.

I find myself dull and absent minded, but I have gotten the "your so smart" thing from a few people before. I find emotional intelligence or cunning and wit to be the sexier things. Overall wisdom trumps reason when it comes to sexiness in my book.

It is an 11! Intelligence is the sexiest thing about a woman. Allthough I've had mind blowing sex with some not so "intelligent" girls. Different people are gifted in different ways and I tend to think that girls who aren't mensa material tend to be good sex material.

I can not be attracted to a woman who has no command of the english language. (written or verbal)

Local dialects and (god forbid) ebonics can make the most beautiful woman seem unattractive to me.

(shrug) To each his (or her) own.

.........let me ask you this what is sex and what is intellegence??
Is it something you can match? ....and how? ......you make it youreselfe may with tools? than you need youre head to do that job right and the result is kind of flat.

If you really want to love and respect someone than use youre soul, youre heart and youre body to do it. youre intellegence makes the money, pays the bills, repairs the gutter, makes you understand difficult words and so on.....

@nycliipper

As for 'aching limbs', well, I have a friend whose perception of travelling and broaden horizon is totally different to mine. He travels by using the internet and is satisfied with it. I prefer to go & see places (climb mountains too and get a c h i n g l i m b s), get real taste of different cultures, customs in whatever small/big dosage. Yet, his intelligence is inspiring, irresistible and yes - sexy - too but in 'travelling department' we are completely different people.
Standing still is an effort.
Movement is painful.
Where there is no pain, there is no gain.
It is effort that hurts, we fight gravity to stand up, lying down is easy.


As for your other comment...*I just read all your postings...my gosh...* I find it inappropriate.

If you expressed yourself on topic it could bring greater clarity into this discussion.

soulfood, I have to agree that it takes the soul, heart and body but it also takes a lady with some kind of intelligence for me to be around since I find that the lack of, a complete turn off. The intelligence is as well a part of the attraction to someone, that doesn't want a bimbo to share just a sex act with. If that were the case then all a guy would have to do is imagine a bimbo and find a knot hole in a log. and as some ladies have said they have bob. See I just feel that sex is not everything and I prefer a woman that can keep up with me mentally as well as physically. yes I also agree intelligence can make you money pay the bills and so forth but pure brawn will do the same. now we are in total agreement on the understanding of words with the mind capacity. now I have noticed that in this day and time there is a lack of imagination in a lot of younger people. It seems that they have to have everything laid out for them to be able to do anything. So that being the case I would prefer a woman with intelligence to be able to be creative at a time when i think would be a pure pleasure to be with her. I am by no means saying that someone with out intelligence can not be creative. when push comes to shove and the talking starts I just want someone on a equal level with myself. So to me personally intelligence is not only sexy but a must to make me keep interested both mentally and physically. But isn't it to each thier own in the way they feel. So that being said, "to me yes intelligence is damn well sexy in a partner".

On a scale of one to ten, how sexy is intelligence? Is it way up there on your list of turn-ons, or would you rather do a dumb-as-a-rock stud?


10, of course..

I think intelligence is one of the sexiest attributes a woman can have. I have dated a lot of very beautiful women and the ones that had no brain didn't last.

Any sexy beautiful woman with a brain can send me a message anytime.

heeey moundpuppy!!! Thanks for reply! I agree! Dump is totally boring!!! Most of the replys here mean Education and attitude and have no clou what intellegence is. Let me tell u this: I was with two African woman together, over years. They had 4 years shool so they learned read, write, count thats it. But wow!! they both were highly intellegent, smart and well acting they learn what they want to, they learn by goal and that, only that is intellegence. Sex is something you do, you use youre senses, youre body. It needs youre experience and youre attraction to this loveone after all you might like to talk but that is another story....
