One who finds intelligence the most sexually attractive feature.
"I want an incisive, inquisitive, insightful, irreverent mind. I want someone for whom philosophical discussion is foreplay. I want someone who sometimes makes me go ouch due to their wit and evil sense of humor. I want someone that I can reach out and touch randomly. I want someone I can cuddle with.

I decided all that means that I am sapiosexual."

A shibboleth used by poseurs attracted to the appearance of intelligence rather than actual intelligence. People genuinely attracted to intelligence know that the word “intelligence” is derived from the Latin “intelligere”; that the Latin participle for wisdom is “sapiens,” not “sapio”; and that the Latin “sapio” means something that tastes good.
I totally identify as a sapiosexual so I find that guy with the bowler hat and handlebar mustache banging out his screenplay at the coffee shop on his Royal typewriter while sipping his no-foam, decaf, soy latte and stroking his monkey totally hot. What? No, seriously. He’s got a for real monkey. He must be smart.

Traditionally the attraction to intelligence, however it can also be extended to the attraction of proper, full sentences and the use of grammar.
