Sapiosexuals claim to be sexually attracted to their definition of intelligence. It's a new term that usually means you're attracted to someone who is able to explain things like scientific theories or philosophy or write poetry. It's basically whatever their specific idea of intelligence is.
This is more accurately labeled as a preference since sexual orientation refers only to the genders that you are attracted to. It does not include a concept like intelligence, which can't be clearly defined for every person.
A person who likes writers is not a scribosexual, a person who likes lawyers is not a jurosexual, and a person who loudly proclaims that they only date smart people might be dangerously full of themselves, but they’re not a “sapiosexual. -Samantha Allen
