New research says short people are angrier and more violent than tall people
Excerpt Higher Perspective:
Researchers at the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, Georgia, recently quizzed 600 men aged between 18 and 50 on the perception of male gender, self-image and behavior in relation to drug-taking, violence and crime for a government-led study.
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 assaults leading to an injury.
A few years ago, a team of researchers at Oxford University also claimed "Short Man Syndrome" is a real thing.
They reported that reducing a person's height can increase feelings of vulnerability and also raise levels of paranoia. Also known as the "Napoleon Complex."
It is very 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 actually 5 feet 7 inches tall, which is basically the average height of our time. And for some perspective, that's an inch taller than movie star Jet Li!
