Yor will be surprised to know that results shows that women did not want a handsome or very clever man. However, that was not the general consensus for what men are looking for.
According to reports of the Daily Mail reported, "Women said a partner would be more attractive if they were more intelligent than 90 per cent of the population.” However, if the person was more intelligent that the rest of the population then attractiveness decreased. The results were the same for physical attractiveness and being easy-going
Co-author of the study Dr Gilles Gignac told the Daily Mail, "It is well established that several mate characteristics are valued highly in a prospective partner. Adding, "But the sort of continuous measurement used in our research is making it clear that several of these characteristics are associated with a threshold effect – in other words, you can have too much of a good thing."
