If You Could Be Attractive and Stupid or Intelligent and Ugly. Which One Would You Prefer? Why?

Topic: If you could be attractive and stupid or intelligent and ugly. Which one would you prefer? Why?

A person of high intelligence will get successes effortlessly no matter how he looks; therefore, I’d rather become an intelligent ugly girl than become a beautiful stupid one. A smart person with unattractive appearance; in my opinion, has much motivation to step forward as well as has been treated with much more respect from other people. In fact, an ugly person can also change to a beautiful one thanks to cosmetic products and medical advances.

More unattractive a person looks, more efforts he makes to establish himself. If a nice person attempts one time, an ugly one has to make manyfold attempts. Book worms without nice looks are usually bullied at school. “The beast” are boycotted and not involved in any school activities with “the beauty”. At that time, “the beast” have to use their own initiative in order to encounter these difficulties. Similarly, the unpretty persons, in the outside, suffer many hardships before they get successes by themselves. Susan Boyle, a runner-up of Britain’s Got Talent, has inspired lots of people around the world although the public first think she’s crazy and never get any prizes with her weight problem. Finally, this underdog can proudly appear in the public eye after 36 years trying and trying.

In general, the group of charming persons easily attracts much more criticism than the ugly group, especially the fair sex. For a long time, everyone has doubted even the truth that Girls’ Generation became popular all over Asia because of their great performance. Haters claim that “these Korean golden girls” do nothing on the stage but expose their sexy body. In the same situation, Leonardo DiCaprio, one of the most famous actors in USA, was supposed to be “a bad book with a beautiful cover.” After Titanic’s big success, the handsome actor was transformed from an unknown actor into a commercial movie superstar. In spite of his excellent acting skill, he received negative responds that teenage girls and young women are totally blind to his incompetence. Much as the attractive people gradually change the audience’ minds, it is obvious that the ugly groups’ accomplishment are honoured without much pressure, such as Bi Rain and Jay Chou.

Last but not least, owing to wearing make-up as well as plastic surgery, many people do not feel ashamed of their looks any longer. For those who look pretty, but too busy to care for their styles, just spend little time make themselves up to have appeal. Furthermore, people said that nice look plays an key role in some fields, particularly in Entertainment Industry; however, it does not mean people who are innately ugly have no chance to be successful in this field. It is reported that 80% of Korean entertainers underwent plastic surgery, so there are equal opportunities for good and bad-looking persons. Ugly Duckling Lee Da Hee; for instance, started her career with much difficulty because lots of audience hated her ugly face, regardless of her true talent. Eventually, Lee and many other talented actors as well, with cosmetic surgery, are considered as beautiful movie stars.

Even though people attach great importance to external appearance in modern society, I’m personally in favour with unpretty people who have high mother-wit. A beautiful person who does not know how to take advantage of his beauty to be successful is completely useless. First, unlike the attractive people, the charmless ones have a great vital power to achieve what they want. Also, everyone has the greater respect for the ugly’ true ability when they become successful. Importantly, ugliness will not last forever since a person can refresh himself simply on account of cosmetics and development of medicine.
