    Yes, I believe the study concluded that tall men are accustomed to being deferred to during childhood, so they carried that expectation into the workplace. Act like a leader and you will be treated like one.

    Unless i am doing something that requires flat shoes i.e running around the park, then you will find me wearing heels. I like the shape that it gives to the legs, plus the feeling and look of tautness on the muscles.

    I'm not "heightist" ha ha...my longest relationship as an adult was with a guy who is 5'8"...but my high school bf was like 6'3" or 6'4".

    I was brought up in a group with five boys, i was the toughest, the best at sport and the fiestiest of all.
    The thing is i think a lot of this "in the workplace" discrimination would probably also come down to type. Being an ENFP gal i'm assertive so i'm not sure that the discrimination heightism would apply to me so much....?
    I'm not that tough, but I'm extremely assertive, too.

    Really? The people who freak me out are the ones who start swearing at your face for no reason. You know, random people just going up to you and start sprouting spit.

    I don't care about their height. Unless they've bulging muscles.. I'd be a bit nervous, though I won't be freaked out.

    If they start contorting maybe..


    5'2" male here; so I'm short. But I like it !

    Apparently the average height of the US presidents is above 6'. Hillary Clinton is 5'8'' and a half. Not that that is saying much, just thought it was interesting.

    Oddly enough, the successful private school I went to had an average height, in the higher years, of 6' or so for males. Its sister school was a similar case. They selected most of their students at the ages of 5 and 11. These are the people who almost always go to the higher ranked universities.

    Well there's this: "Height was somewhat more strongly related to success for men (rho =.29) than for women (rho =.21), although this difference was not significant."

    Most studies suggest similar.

I'm pretty sure this study only involved males though.

    So, height discrimination in childhood leads to it in adulthood. Not surprising, and makes it doubtful that discrimination vanishes as people age.

    It's also worth mentioning that a lot of these studies account for a wide range of variables outside of height. Including job performance and personality traits. How much so varies, and how exactly they measure them I am unsure of.
