Many Americans don't like to admit that they're judgmental but sometimes it takes more than personality to impress someone of the opposite sex. Although intelligence doesn't hurt, the U.S. is a society that takes beauty first and brains second. Because Hollywood is notorious for its A-list airheads, the media is now focusing on pretty faces making it harder for less attractive but more outspoken men and women. What matters more to you, personality or appearance?

    I think I am judgmental about personality a lot more than looks. You can look like anything (I think) and if your personality doesn't grate on me then I am fine. An absolutely awesome personality and I'm completely happy. And everywhere in between.

    Not to say I don't also drool over physical beauty for a minute but you can look great and have a so-so personality and I will not look at you for long as it bleeds over for me.

    I'll see the personality first then if it's possible looks, because you can't and you won't like to live with a cute person but whose personality is bad. So personality comes first ^^

    am, i prefer the appearance at the first sight cuz if i like what i see then i will go to the guy or girl and i will talk to him or her. and after that it will be the personality that it will be more important to me, cuz the guy can be smokin hot but if his personality is crap than i don't have nothing to do with him anymore..

    I believe that every person is different. For me, there has to be atleast some physical attraction with what I gather from my senses right away. On the other side of that though, I have to actually enjoy the persons' company to want to stay with them. I guess then I would be a personality type person.

  • Electra~Greekbby♥ 2009/01/23 14:18:25
    I prefer personality
    I have to admit that appearance is the first thing I [and probably everyone] notice... Although, I think that personality is much more important!!! We are not just empty images...Everyone is unique... And, last but not least, "DO NOT JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER" !!!
  • Amber 2009/01/22 06:01:21

    I'm not going to lie apperance does matter but when its all said and done with personality matters more then anything. Now to get both in a girl would be the ultimate turn on.

    I prefer personality, but I am not really going to get a chance to know the personality if the looks aren't there in the first place. So, looks get you in the door, personality helps you stay.

    Both if I can get it,otherwise I would say personality. Who in their right mind would want to go out with a hot guy id they were a total back stabbing jerk who didn't care about you.

    well i guess both appearance and personality are both important but i think personality matters a little bit more. it would get boring at times if all you could do was look at the person than have an actual conversation.

    Of course I would like both but who am I to be picky. As I've grown older, I appreciate personality and humor more. I've dated some hot men. But they tend to be, well, dogs!

    Let's be honest, though, hardly anyone is attracted to someone at first because of personality alone. It's human nature to look for someone you find attractive, whatever attractive is to you. In the long run, however, I look for someone with a personality fitting to mine.

    if i realy like them the appearance just kinda works itself out. Even if the person didn't look that great before i like them they end up looking attractive to me when i do.

    If you have to live with someone you may as well be able to get along with them. I love a good sense of humor and it can surpass good looks anytime.

    A bit of both is important, but I will confess that an attractive physique does attract my attention. I have been blessed with an eye of discernment, and enjoy it often!!

    But I would prefer personality. Personality wins out overall. Appearance isnt everything, I think personality shows who someone really is on the inside. Appearance is all but a look. The outside of a person. It can show beauty, and emotions, but personality can show much more. Personality can tell alot about a person. Looks, just tells us that they're pretty.
