The Editor thinks this story is probably nonsense. The Administrator thinks it verifies what he’s always known in his heart.
The New York Daily News has the details:
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.
Since intelligent men are more inclined to achieve more success, they are “more likely to marry beautiful women,” Kanazawa said. “Given that both intelligence and physical attractiveness are highly heritable, there should be a positive correlation between intelligence and physical attractiveness in the children’s generation.”
