Well, if the Journal of Psychology says so...oh, wait, it's Psychology Today? Hahahaha. They couldn't even type the title right in the article, unless it's part 1 of a series and they're just teasing us with more genius analysis yet to come.

I think it's more correlated to wealth and health which contribute to attractiveness.

If you're born wealthy, you have more access to healthy foods, more free time for exercise, a better choice of high-quality clothing and more opportunities to achieve higher education and learn a skill. A healthy physique, a good sense of style and a high-paying job will make you attractive and that will attract a good-looking mate and increase the chance to produce attractive children. Those children will also get opportunities for more education and again attract attractive partners. It's a cycle.

Well, I think that wealthy people are slightly more likely to be physically attractive, and not just because they have the resources to dress better, exercise more, eat better food, and see the best hairdressers and plastic surgeons. There's also the fact that those who marry up, into the upper classes or the educated classes, are more likely to be physically attractive and to pass on good-looking genes to their offspring.
And of course, teachers treat good-looking students better, and there's no intelligence test that isn't biased towards those with good education and good social standing.

I've read before that there is a correlation between brains and looks, to the effect that, contrary to the popular view of a bespectacled nerd called Eugene, very intelligent people are more often good-looking than not. It doesn't mean they all look like Heddy Lamarr, though obviously one of them did.
I mean, Bill Clinton and Obama v W and Twitler.
That sounds a more sensible slant than "beautiful people are more intelligent". I think we're all well aware from Hollywood, which has maybe the highest concentration of beautiful people in the world, that this doesn't fly.

Bad example, R13. Both Obama and Dubya are fairly good-looking, both Trump and Clinton are not. Clinton is by all accounts extremely attractive in person, but he's never been handsome. So your bad example gives us one good-looking and one ugly dolt, and one good-looking and one ugly smart person.
Although it certainly tells us a lot about the two parties they represent.

If you read the article, they claim the average difference in IQ between an average looking person and an extremely attractive person was 3 IQ points.
He also says weird shit like "... women on average are physically more attractive than men. " Was this determination made before or after makeup? Line them up, wipe their faces clean, and run the test again.

Considering the classmates I had at a top law school, I'd say this claim is bogus.

r15, I picked up on the same thing. The difference between the "ugly" and the "beautiful" was not huge. Just a few points difference
