Not to mention that the average person is fairly intelligent, problem comes when most people have little interest in academia which can lead to them appearing rather dumb, but i dont believe it to be the case.
Truly stupid people arent that common.
Depends how tall and how beautiful. If I could be like 8 feet tall and basically look like the engineers from Prometheus then yes, I would. I wouldnt trade intelligence to look like other people though. Intelligence is far more rare than beauty.
I mentioned interest in academic subjects and the notion that introverts tend to be a tad smarter (this is up to debate), it was meant as a fairly joky sentence not as a fact, i really should stop mix humor with my posts. *shrugs*
I look decent and i'm 1.95m so no, i would not
It really depends on how much I would lose and how much I would gain. If I went from a 9/10 to a 10.8/10 and lost one IQ point I would. But if I just gained a little bit of beauty+height and lost a bunch of int I would't. As to the people who are saying they wouldn't because beauty fades, so does int.
Disagree with your first sentence, perhaps is just our experiences being different? i find quite a lot of fairly intelligent people, but maybe my standards are lower than yours
And i agree with your second phrase, honestly im too tired right now to bother going into the topic of intelligence although my opinions are likely quite known already, so in avoidance mode

I'll give you an example of something that leads me to decide, "this person is probably stupid" that all of us here can relate to, but most people will disagree with me on. If I see a player in WoW pulling 15K DPS on a boss (at level 90), ask them what's going on, and they say, "lol i play 4 fun", I feel pretty comfortable concluding that they're stupid. I know many people will tell me that this person might just have different priorities, but I honestly feel that people who don't care at all if they're good at things that they spend a fair bit of time doing are basically stupid.
Just curious, why did you add height? Who want's to be tall anyway? I'd happily give away 0.3-0.4' for free.
I'd only take the deal if it didn't make me too dumb, more like average, it came without the height and instead of beauty, I could keep what I have for the next 60 years or so at least..
I've got height and some intelligence. Beauty is in the ey of the beholder.
Brain cells on the other hand cannot grow back, they can become 'lazy' and with mental workout you can improve their efficiency to what nature intended should be used but you can't go beyond that. Every other improvement past that point is subjective and test measuring it becomes faulty.
