    But if you compare the highly attractive McD employee in non-McD clothes with the average looking executive I would bet that most women would rather date the highly attractive McD employee, just based on looks+job alone (leaving personality out of the question in this context)

    You have a point. Women would probably have to know about their respective resumes/salaries to go with the executive. If they're both just walking down the street, it's obvious who's gonna catch their attention.

    Definitely not. Unless eights like Johnny Cash and young Marlon Brando fall into the category.

    Just as much as men are immediately attracted to hot women; women are attracted to powerful/influential/rich men. Of course looks help too.
    I'm totally not. They gross me out. So speak for yourself.

    The men listed in the OP are mostly repulsive to me. Politicians, executives and CEOs are mostly repulsive to me. The only two men I ever lived we're both poor when I fell in love with them. People who feel like "money" are more often gross to me than attractive.

    Not sure about a relationship with them, they are too close to being like me but they are attractive in many ways. Hopefully by middle age, they have become a little more subtle and a little more refined. That person would be very doable.

    What an odd definition of "primal". All those traits are appealing to me, at least in moderation. Power is neutral (sometimes slightly positive or negative). "Alpha male"-ness/machismo/my interpretation of "primal" is repulsive for me. I have no idea what kind of guy you're describing anymore. I don't think most of the traits you listed correlate very well with "power", other tahn ambition and perhaps overall competence.

    I don't find a high salary attractive but I do find some kind of personal ambition attractive. I like to excell at what I do I want to be with someone like me. And personally, the ambition to make money is a turn off. A man with a high salary and no passions is unattractive. A low paid man with dreams and ambitions is attractive.

    That being said if i was in a hypothetical situation with two men who were identical (in all the values and personality traits that matter to me) except that one was extremely attractive but made average money, and a man who had a ton of money but was average looking. I would pick the attractive one.

    Personal power? Yes.

    Money and "snap my fingers and I can get anything" power? No...not at all.
