Short People Get Angrier and More Violent Than Tall Ones, According to Research
Researchers from the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, Georgia, have recently quizzed 600 men between the ages of 18 and 50 on the perception of male gender, self-image, and behavior concerning violence, crime, and drug-taking, for a government-led study.
The scientists found out that men that feel the least masculine are most likely to commit violent or criminal acts.
According to the study, men who considered themselves less masculine, also known as “male discrepancy stress,” were nearly three times more likely to have committed violent assaults with a weapon or attacks leading to an injury.
Some years ago, a team of researchers at Oxford University claimed “Short Man Syndrome” is indeed a real thing.
They reported that a shorter height can cause feelings of vulnerability and also increase levels of paranoia, which is also known as the “Napoleon Complex.”
As modern society became more superficial, focused on the body standards for both sexes, height has become a taboo topic for many men.
It is possible that these studies included too small of a test group to accurately describe the behavioral tendencies of someone based on their height.
Just for clarification, Napoleon was 5 feet 7 inches tall, which is the average height of our time. And for some perspective, that’s an inch taller than movie star Jet Li!
