There's a word for those of us who find intelligence to be sexy and desirable in romantic partners: sapiosexuals. Marilyn Monroe was a famous example; she married playwright Arthur Miller and kept a portrait of Albert Einstein on her piano.
Sapiosexuality isn't quite as cut-and-dried as it sounds, however. Like so many areas of human attraction, it's more complex than you'd think. While intelligence might be sexy, there is such a thing as being too smart.
But Dr. Aaron Ben-Zeév, a professor of philosophy and former president of the University of Haifa, broke it all down on Psychology Today.
