rhetorically doubtful

so do attractive people ever wish they were referred to as "the one with a 'great personality'"?

I do. Every single day. Such is the curse of being exquisitely lovely. I also wish that people would refer to me as the smart one. :oP

I prefer to be referred to as the one Jesus loved. ;-)

I don't think most attractive people actually regard themselves as attractive. I know quite a few people I would consider attractive that are overly humble or even self-deprecating about their appearances. They seem genuinely surprised when someone compliments their appearance, and often try to play off the compliment.

You ask that question as if you don't consider yourself in the category of people who are attractive. And that's utter nonsense.

As for your question...I generally consider a good personality a necessary part of being an attractive person, and such a person could easily be more known for that component of his or her attractiveness than his or her physical looks. Your question almost sounds like an either or but not both type of question (if you are attractive, would you rather be good looking or have a great personality, but you cannot be both).

I suppose I consider myself attractive--that is to say, I consider myself attractive a good part of the time, and my friends seem to agree, and since I don't think they are that good at lying, I assume they are right.

And I would MUCH rather be known for having a great personality than only for good looks. Why? Because I wouldn't want to spend my time with those who would want to hang out with someone solely for her good looks. I think they would be fickle and shallow friends.
