A comment at Mail Online says it pretty well. And how about Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking? Or ... or ... Arnold Schwarzenegger? Helen Thomas? Sokrates?

(admitted, my tested personal IQ is much lower than 178 but still high enough to see the questionability of this ... I dare to say 'pseudo-scientific' research)

I concur with this reader-comment:

Interesting how this report uses the terms "good-looking", "beautiful" and "attractive" as if they were interchangeable, whereas, in my experience at least, they are not. As a personal example, and dealing only with physical appearance, I remember a TV program that concluded that based on facial symmetry and the golden ratio, Liz Hurley was extremely beautiful. I have to agree with that: however, I do not find her attractive at all. On the other hand, I find a 25 year old Sissy Spacek achingly attractive, but I would agree with most people that she was never beautiful, at least in a classic sense. There are many other examples I could cite. So how was beauty, or whatever, actually measured for this survey? Was there a scientific method or was it just "people the researchers fancied"? p.s. I'm bald & fat but have a verified IQ of 178

Attractive people have higher IQs: Beauty and brains DO go together! (then I'm an idiot savant)
