Now I do think women can be attracted to a man with a high IQ IF he turns it into something tangeable. Like he uses his intelligence to make a high income. Or he uses it to be the AMOG or otherwise control resources. Knowledge is power as they say. Power can be sexy. But it depends. Many high IQ folks are unable to make this ability work for them.
Look, the high school QB is going to have a lot of chicks even if he is dumber than a bag of hammers. BUT, if he is smart too he has a better future and maintaining his status.
Like any generalities ... YMMV.
The person who invents is often not the one to benefit. The guy that exploits that effort gets the goodness ... and the women. Just sayin.
