Sapiosexual (1)

noun Blend
Someone that is attracted to (sometimes even aroused by) intelligence in others, generally over any other characteristic or trait
 
Typically refers to academic intelligence and ‘book smarts.’ Mimicking the structure of sexualities like homosexual and heterosexual. Word probably coined to express their specific extreme attraction to intelligence. Probably arose from the rise of LGBT+ acceptance and the influx of new labels accompanying it and wanting to create a label that applies to them also. “Being sapiosexual in a culture where swag, turn up, Netflix and chill are pillars is cruel and unusual punishment.”
Etymology : probably blend from Latin sapien ‘wise’ + sexual
