be a demisexual

definition: n. A person who is sexually attracted to intelligence or the human mind before appearance. A person for whom sexual attraction without deep emotional or romantical connection isn't possible.
from Latin sapio ('wise, sensible, discerning') and English -sexual ('describing a state of sexuality or style')

sapiophile vs demisexual
Not to be mismatched, the term 'sapiophile' also implies a deep emotional or romantical bond, but more specifically towards intelligence. A sapiophile can be demisexual, but then again sexual attraction is not mandatory for the first (c.f. also sapiosexual).
