Interesting studies about Tall and Short men

I recently wrote an article on Short man syndrome with some scientific proofs on how insecure short men are. There are so many fascinating things to know about our height generally. However, short men are also favored by nature just like the taller ones.

People only pay attention to what goes on the other side; even judging on mere physical limitation and advantage.

Several research carried out, like those of Oxford University, University of Groningen in the Netherlands and those written in Psychiatry Research Journal exist to shed more light on this. Luckily, I’ve gotten some clues on what exactly your height say about you.


Tall men are more likely to be fathers. A research carried out in the year 2000 in Liverpool and Poland found that, fathers in a group of 3,201 Polish men were on average nearly an inch-and-a-half taller than those who had never had children. Why? Just because there exists active selection for stature in male partners by women.

Therefore, short men are also far more likely to be unmarried and to suffer from depression.
