Charisma and beauty are completely different things, as are brains and wisdom!
Yes they are
Brains. I'll then invent something to make me a gazillionaire, and if my money doesn't make me attractive enough, I'll hire people who just have to tell me I'm beautiful all the time. If that fails, I can always pay a plastic surgeon somewhere to make me look like Barbie.
Surely if you had brains then making yourself look like Barbie if all else failed would still not satisfy you?
Even as an 8yo I was of the opinion of brains. Brains can get you wealth, wealth can buy you beauty
But not necessarily the beauty you want.
If you are pretty you can get wealth but you can never recover the lost brains.
But there were/are no brains to lose.
I wanna be pretty...... Cos then a brainy man who invented something that made him a gazillion dollars will want to marry me and I can have it all without having to the work. I just have to give up food, comfortable shoes and my opinions.
Why would you have to give them up?
To me they seem to be a bit mutually exclusive. I'm highly suspicious of lawyers/porn stars/glamour model types. I believe that if you really do have that many brains, that should be enough to get you through and you should be smart enough not to buy into the beauty myth. If you have brains I guess it doesn't necessarily follow on that you have self-esteem, however when I was at uni there weren't too many glamours, to get through all the presentations and public speaking involved people generally developed enough confidence to stand on what they were given by God in the looks department.
