Which of these attributes do you believe helps the most with getting what you want in life? Assume that everyone has the drive to get what they want, but an excessive amount of just one of the choices above.

Good looks will get you in the door every time. Intelligence and charisma will keep you in the room. But if you have entry into a lot of rooms throughout life, and depending on who is in those rooms with you when you get there, that's all you need.

Shallow, but that's human nature.

Charisma will get you there, look at how many people like our current president. And of those, when questioned why, look how many people can only answer "he speaks so well" or "it is just something about him."

Where is the choice "sense of humor"? I'd pick that one over any of the above. Your attitude is your life.

I voted for intelligence of your choices but I think that your most valuable assett is flexability. In the fast paced world of today you better be able to adapt to change in a hurry or you will be left behind.
Be careful when you follow the masses, the M is sometimes silent.

I wonder how Duffster can spin "Which Ice Cream do you like best" into a political rant sprinkled with genteel racism.

Oddly the only people who are surprised that our President who received his JD from Harvard Magna Cum Laude can speak so well can usually only see his pigment from those little eye slits in their hood.

Luck and timing. The old saying I'd rather be lucky than good.

Please explain where there is any racism in my statement.

The poster specified that "the drive" to accomplish was already there, so I went with luck. Nothing like having some fortuitous luck along with drive. (edited to say, hopefully there is some reasonable intelligence on board too, but still going with luck)

There wasn't. I find it funny when people like us are accused of being "racist" because we don't love Obama. I usually explain: "I didn't love Mondale. I didn't love Dukakis. I didn't love Clinton. I didn't love Gore. I didn't love Kerry. I don't love Obama...If, after you review my history, you believe my lack of affection for the President is because of the color of his skin, you are the narrow-minded one."

It's nice to read your posts again, AZD.
