The big lesson here is not "smart women are unattractive" but rather "rude women are unattractive." The fact that the example woman thinks she is rejected for being intelligent instead of for being a thoughtless, entitled, selfish, superior bitch is simply hamstering.

All else being equal I prefer a smarter woman to a stupider one, but we have to check the "pleasant" box before we get anywhere near the smarts part of the checklist.

The problem is less a woman's intelligence, and more what is often a "smart" woman's near pathological need to force her supposed intelligence into Every. F*cking. Sentence. of a conversation. Intelligence is definitely a show rather than tell quality, and most women don't understand this.

Also, (and perhaps I should have led with this as I find much more annoying and prevalent) most self-described 'smart' women, aren't. They're what I colloquially call 'girl-smart'. Most women are not expected to be intelligent; it's not necessary in her daily life and ever since she was in middle school she's learned to bat her eyes and get the nerdy boys to do her work for her. Therefore, the amount of intelligence a woman must display for society to consider her smart is much like the amount of physical prowess she must display to be considered strong or athletic, the bar is substantially lower for women than for men.

This perfectly describes her need to bring up degrees kelvin in a "I know what it is do you?" fashion.

I'm dating a woman who has a fetish for intelligence. She perceives me as intelligent because I make things seem effortless and I know a lot of things. Her pulling up random information is commonplace.

For the men who deal with anything like that, treat such "I know it, do you?" conversations as shit tests. I prefer to admit that I don't know it because I have "more important things to know"

educated woman responds to a statement about it being cold outside by saying that it's really not all that cold because it's only 273 degrees kelvin

Whether she's intelligent or not that's neither an intelligent statement nor observation. It's pretentious as fuck and if the person the comment was made to knows what degrees kelvin is they will realise that the person is also being a condescending ass and will be annoyed.

Everyone is circling the real issue. Intelligence, improperly moderated, is rude, dull, and disagreeable. People who feel the need to state a bunch of facts, disagree at the slightest notion, and use intelligence as an ego boost are bad people - regardless of sex.

The fact is this woman is a narcissist. She didn't even realize how cutting a person out of a conversation is a cruel high school clique tactic, and even done unintentionally is rude as fuck.

I'm going to disagree with the idea that intelligent women are intrinsically less attractive to intelligent men. I take umbrage with this paragraph specifically:

The key word in the article above is "argumentative". That is the main reason why highly intelligent men can't stand intelligent women. The fact that a man is capable of having a substantive intellectual discussion with a woman doesn't mean he wants to do so every time he makes a simple observation. When an intelligent, educated woman responds to a statement about it being cold outside by saying that it's really not all that cold because it's only 273 degrees kelvin, that doesn't make him admire her intelligence or her education. It makes him want to murder her, burn the body, and spend the rest of his life with an 85-IQ stripper with big breasts who isn't set on permanent disagreeable mode.

That a woman is intelligent doesn't necessarily follow that she's argumentative. I'd go so far as to say that an intelligent woman is less likely to be needlessly argumentative; she's smart enough to know which communication strategies work and which ones are pointlessly contrarian. Stupid girls are often stubborn and argumentative because they can't grasp why they're being disagreed with. They fall back on logical fallacies and emotional arguments.

This really does just sound like a less intelligent alpha expressing his dislike for more intelligent females, while not having the self-awareness to realize he's not that intelligent.

You should read it to the end.

The fact that female intelligence is not a male attractor does not mean that it has to be an outright disattractant. Like the highly intelligent man, the highly intelligent woman has to learn how to utilize her intelligence in a judicious manner.

I've always maintained that intelligence beyond a very base level is neither sufficient nor required for men to be attracted to women.

I read that, but that was not his argument. In fact, he said nothing one way or another about the value of intelligence within a women.

His argument was that argumentative women were undesirable, and presented no evidence that intelligent women were more argumentative.



You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
