    A man in good shape is nice,

    but if there's a great mind and sense of humor attached to it it is irresistible!

    I want someone for whom philosophical

    discussion is foreplay, someone who sometimes challenges me with their wit and evil sense of humor, someone I can reach out, someone I can cuddle with.

    I enjoy people who are quick-witted

    and intelligent. I don't think they are interchangeable terms. I have known some very intelligent people who just seem to be so dull at stimulating conversation. To me, the most interesting people are those with a sharp wit and some depth behind that, as well.

    Physical attraction is quite nice.

    But what's the use of muscles or a handsome face without brains to back it up? Just sayin.

    Intelligence Makes A Guy Look Good

    I am not going to deny that 'Dark, Tall, Handsome with Six-pack' always blows me away. Yet, what does really matter to keep me interested is intelligence. Some guys have got all that beautiful appearance but when they speak...there's no dream, no ambition, no aim in their life...

    Two witty intelligent people can talk

    for hours and never get bored and I love that. Intelligence enhances your ability to make connections and gives you so much more to talk about! I love a guy who makes math jokes hahaha

    No, but really, I just can't handle someone

    who doesn't have intelligence. It really doesn't matter how attractive you are, if you're not intelligent I can't be attracted to you. I went on a date with a model a few years ago, and he was gorgeous– he basically looked sculpted– but he was as dumb as a rock. He told me...

    Hmmm... I do like a witty character.

    "Wit and Intelligence" is an interesting broad statement. Does it being witty is intellectual? Earlier i was told wit is brevity, surely it is! By definition, wit is an aptitude to have an instantaneous reply. Which could be coined with cognitive and intellectual reasoning...

    I don't understand how people can be

    so vague. I could be running my mouth about the most interesting subject in the world - and the only people reacting to it are those with simple reactions. "That's cool, bro." is just a conversation downer.

    Religion Doesn'T Make You A Good Person

    I admire these qualities,

    and I'm happy I possess them. I hope that doesn't sound arrogant, it isn't meant to. I have many "DUH" moments, and I know I lack common sense in some areas (like, when will I ever learn that if I touch something hot, it will burn me?? Never, I guess), but overall, I know I...

    For years, I tried to fit in with people

    who were *not* intelligent, and whose idea of wit was fart jokes. Why? Because there were so many of them. But finally, I couldn't stand it any longer. Being quiet so people wouldn't think I was weird....nope. So when I was in my late 20s, I just stopped doing it. I didn't act...

    The most important quality in a woman

    for me personally is not beauty but her intelligence and sense of humour. Beauty without wit and intelligence is a big turn off for me.

    But the finale is when he talks. The looks of a man is for the eyes only but his wit and intelligence capture both mind and heart. And if he is compassionate and kind.... He is a real MAN.... 🌹🌹

    I think there's a word.

    so it is a trait i look for in others. I enjoy people to whom I can have a intelligent conversation with, someone that can deal with the dodgy ideas and stuff that Ilike, such as why are we here etc. As well as this wit is one of my most favourite kind of humour lol

    I feel that the lack of intelligence is

    actually more of a call for help . Think about it . If you didn't know you were stupid would you want someone to tell you ??? Would you want to be given the same chance to choose wether or not you want to be educated . I know I would .
