I really can't answer this question the way you've worded it. Let me illustrate:|
If you're talking about a relatively short-term relationship, one night stand, or something like that, my first choice would likely be the more attractive girl. But if her personality was not good, the relationship wouldn't last very long. The less attractive girl, I'll admit I wouldn't initially chase her so actively, but if we got to know each other and found that we were compatible, I could certainly develop a more serious relationship with her.
It also depends on what you mean by 'ugly'. For example, I know a girl whose face was terribly disfigured in a fire years ago, and by any standards, her face is not at all attractive. But she's one of the sweetest, kindest girls I know, and she has an excellent husband and a great relationship. I would not feel strong attraction to a girl like that the first time I met her, I'll admit; but I could see myself growing to love her.
On the other hand, a woman who's really obese...or very dirty...I could never, ever, ever develop a romantic interest in such a person, regardless of how nice her personality was. Friends, yes. Romance, no.
Intelligence is definitely a huge factor for me. I remember a few years ago, I went to a party with an extremely attractive date...she was easily the most beautiful woman there. Every guy at the party (and many of the women) were watching her constantly. Only one problem...she had very few operational brain cells. She was a nice, sweet girl, but it was impossible to carry on a conversation about anything other than her favorite TV soap operas or what color shoes she should buy. At the party, I met another girl who was pretty average in appearance, but really sharp, and we shared many of the same ideas, etc. When I started talking to her, I forgot completely about the much more beautiful woman I'd brought with me. Afterwards, my friends all told me that they thought I was insane, ignoring such a sexy woman.
My ideal choice -- a gorgeous woman, with a sweet personality, and high intelligence. But if I had to choose only two of those three characteristics, I'd definitely choose personality and intelligence. Well...that is, if we're talking about a long-term relationship. If we're talking about a one night stand, then beauty almost certainly wins out. Yeah, I can be a shallow person at times ;)
