Does wearing glasses make you look smarter? I think they do and I would venture to say that most people would think so as well. No, wearing glasses does not make you more intelligent, but it will make you look like you are a few IQ points higher. It’s a stereotype. Many smart and intelligent people wear glasses. People who read a lot of books have to wear glasses. Professional athletes who have better than 20/20 vision wear glasses during interviews and conferences… why? To look smart!
