    how does an intelligent woman look?

    Wear serious clothing?   And not to much makeup?

      of listening in earnest.  Someone who takes care of themselves and isn't slovenly or disheveled.  I guess you could say the same thing about intelligent looking men.

      •  I would say that there are many ways to appear (0+ / 0-)

        intelligent....

        but the way you judge someone as intelligent is not to begin with how they look.

          but while looks can deceiving it's a fact that people do get judged by their appearances.  It's hard to take a doctor's advice seriously if he/she has a cigarette pack in her/his pocket no matter how brilliant his diagnosis is.  Truly intelligent people know that substance matters more appearance but make sure that appearance is not a distraction.

          •  Truly intelligent people (0+ / 0-)

            are not preoccupied with their physical appearance....

            or worried what  people prepared to make such judgments think.

            But then again, I actually know people who are rocket scientists...and let me assure you, if they remember to shave they are ahead in the game.

    •  This is not s sexist thing (0+ / 0-)

      The same applies to men. Rick Perry looks intelligent until he opens his mouth. Goldie Hawn looked like the proverbial dizzy blonde but the reality she is very very bright. Looks can be deceiving in both men and women. If you want to hammer me for being sexist go ahead but it is BS

      •  Of course it is sexist. But who cares? (0+ / 0-)

        Assuming that someone is intelligent on the basis of looks, especially for a tv personality...who has stylists, make up artists, people that dress them, people who coach them..along with ghost writers...

        wouldn't be something I would do.

        And I fail to understand that people make such judgments  would admit it...in public.

        In otherwords.....

        having known a few actors, I have learned that physical appearance doesn't even make the cut when one making character judgments.
