Precisely... personally intelligence, or rather a desire for achievement
(I've met plenty of really smart people who never did anything with it),
is an extremely important part of attraction for me, but most people rate
it pretty low on the scale.

A number of people seem to be confusing our discussion of how the majority
of people see scientists with how the people on the list see them. Few
people turn their heads to watch when most scientists walk down the
street. That's not to say that a scientist can't be extremely attractive,
but they're going to have to work at it.
