One who finds the content's of someone else's mind to be their most attractive attribute, above and before their physical characteristics. From the Latin root "sapien", meaning wise. The term is now becoming mainstream with dating apps such as OkCupid and Sapio giving users the ability to define their sexual orientations as "Sapiosexual."

For many, defining oneself as Sapiosexual is also a statement against the current status quo of hookup culture and superficiality, where looks are prized above all else.
"Give me a deep conversation or a passionate debate over brainless beauty any day. Someone who makes me reconsider my long-held beliefs and challenges my mind is a person I can easily fall for. There is no doubt that I'm a sapiosexual."

Sapiosexual: apparently it suggests that a person is attracted to another person's intelligence and wits, rather than their physical appearance. I'd strongly suggest for the term to be replaced though, because of the connotations it carries; the Latin and Greek origins of these kind of words tend to make them universal and they rapidly get used all around the globe. "Sapio" might both mean "to have sense" or "to taste" in Latin, but it also means "rotten" in Greek, therefore the word hints at and sounds etymologically related to necrophilia and/or caniballism.

A term that is the last hope for lonely losers, overweight women, and pretentious tools of both genders to make themselves feel better by purportedly valuing "intelligence" over physical appearance. Frequently used in online dating profiles to give the appearance of depth and to, self-reverentially, designate oneself as very intelligent.
