    TC can be improved, attractiveness (mostly) cannot

      I suppose body and hair are fixable, but it'll take effort and money to improve. Face is the main thing that cannot be improved IMO, facelifts/botox cannot bring back skin damage from sun or getting old.

      You can improve attractiveness, but there is a certain limit to it.

  • I’m the lucky bastard who married a very pretty “admin”. Every evening is a date. Beat that.

      True. This is also why we need better gender balance in tech.

      There is a attractiveness gap in tech.

      I was not talking about binary in terms of gender.

      What i meant was balance of attraction and TC. Even if a person has high TC and unattractive that doesn't work if you are not even slightly attracted to them. And if person is very pretty but dumb/low TC then that won't either.

      Balance is what helps.

      Also, i know this is gender dependent. Guys don't care about TC and go only for pretty ones

      Buffet is unattractive but extremely wealthy. That is ok

  • Jeff Bezos divorced McKenzie for hot Lorenza. There must be a reason Wealthiest man on earth had to choose beauty over TC

      This is kind of silly point. Of course a man with more money than he could ever spend wants a hot woman. Average person money is more of a concern.

    Is it weird to ask for TC as the first thing on a date?

    • Amazon fcuked
      It would be weird for TC-focused people to even go on a date before getting that question answered.

    Choose 0tc pretty girl over 300k unattractive girl anyday. Why is this even a question. Unless you can use 300k to date other pretty girls.

    Someone, who wouldn't ask me such question.

    High TC and attractive is actually worse then lower TC and attractive. If they got both they may have every reason to leave you.

    • Google notachad
      Okay but if they leave you at least you don’t lose a bunch of your money.

      what in case you both are attractive and have high TC?

    How about someone with a good personality that you really click with? I'd choose that over high total comp and hotness.

    This is dependant on whether you are male or female.

    Males are highly likely going to pick attractiveness over tc (not all cases though).
    Females are more split in terms of attractiveness vs tc but probably skewed toward tc. Caveat is that females here tend to earn more so won't be as focused on partner's tc.

    The results of this poll likely vary significantly based on the gender of the person voting.

      do you think one gender prefer ugliness more than other? TC of voters may add a bias

    Neither variable is significant to a happy marriage. Enroll in a community college and take some humanity classes. I say enroll so you can have discussion with people who are not like you

    Both. Unfortunately such women are all too rare

      You are right. No such dearth among men

    • Bloomberg iVX372
      Not sure how to best quantify attractiveness with existing data, but it is quantitatively true that US men earn more than US women, as a median and an average. All high paying US careers are male-dominated, unless nursing is included. MD's may now have an even split, but afaik that is the only exception

    I'd pick intelligence, empathy and romantic :). TC or attractiveness doesn't matter.

    Seems like people in marketing/sales are usually attractive and have decent TC, but they don’t go for engineering types for whatever reason.

    It depends on your TC also. If you're Jeff will you (re)marry a billionaire that you're not attracted to anymore?
