Sexual Quotient (SQ): The Importance of Personality to Men Versus Women, and Why Women are the Smarter Sex

  • Share

“Men notice female personality even less than women notice male personality.”

“I think you’re wrong. Personality is very important to me in a woman,” replied Evan.

“I’m sure it’s the first thing you notice, Evan.”

“It definitely affects the way I perceive her.”

“OK. How many overweight, unattractive women with personality have you dated?”

Evan was silent.

“Like I said, the fact that women are less shallow than men is the only reason that there’s hope for guys like me.”

“No! That’s not a fair question,” Evan protested.

“Don’t feel bad about it,” Sammy continued. “You would care less about looks and more about personality if you were less attractive. But the fact that you’re a good-looking guy makes you feel like you’re entitled to date a good-looking woman.”

Evan still seemed uneasy about Heeb’s analysis, so Heeb went even further.

“Hey, if I looked like you, I’d also feel entitled to date more attractive women.”

“But why does a preference for attractive women mean that I don’t care about personality? Why can’t I date an attractive woman with personality?” Evan asked.

“That’s like a woman asking why she can’t date a rich man with personality.”

“Well why can’t she?”

“She can. And she will – which also proves how women are smarter.”

“How does it prove that?”

“Because a man’s superficiality just gets him a nicer-looking woman. A woman’s superficiality gets her a nicer life.”

Evan thought about Heeb’s observations, and furrowed his brow, somewhat troubled by everything he was hearing. Heeb saw that he was clearly having an effect on Evan, and this only encouraged him to expound further upon his ideas, so that he could – for a little longer – relish the guru power that he seemed to hold over Evan now.

“That’s why wealth is such an important factor in a man’s SQ – and arguably even more important than his age. Think about it: a multibillionaire – whether he’s sixteen or eighty-two years old – can still attract a vast number of women, because women have their eye on the ball. It’s their evolutionary survival instinct. They’re looking to find the most plentiful and resourceful environment for their offspring.”
