Studies have shown that short people tend to be much angrier than others. Investigators 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.
The outcome of the research is that men who feel the least masculine are most at risk of committing violent or criminal acts.
As per the findings, it says men who considered themselves less masculine, also known as “MALE DISCREPANCY STRESS,” were nearly three times more likely to have committed violent attacks with a weapon or assaults leading to an injury.
Several years ago, a team of researchers from Oxford University also claimed “Short Man Syndrome” seems to be quite realistic.
They reported that lowering a person’s height can increase feelings of vulnerability and also raise levels of paranoia which could lead to them blowing their fuse much faster. Therefore, they have identified that being short can influence a person’s quality of life up to a certain extent.
However, it is clear that modern society has given the attention towards the body standards of human being. Therefore, height is becoming an offensive topic for many men.
According to modernghana, these studies such as the one in Georgia are too small, too caught up with studying fringes of society with volatile characteristics to be able to accurately paint males of smaller stature. After all, Napoleon himself actually measured at 5ft 7, roughly the average height of his day. Which, if you want some perspective, is an inch taller than action star Jet Li.
