As proponents of a biosocial gender approach argue, the two sets of influences are completely, and utterly, intertwined.There was also a very practical reason that motivated Stulp and his team to investigate height preferences. Napoleon aside, tall men are more likely to win the popular contest in presidential votes and to be re-elected once in office (Stulp, 2013).

These findings are consistent with the data from other studies showing that tall men enjoy an advantage in self-esteem and happiness.

Here again, the authors link the dissatisfaction of the shorter men to the fact that women prefer tall men.

Evolutionarily speaking, one might argue that a tall man would be preferred by women because, if you follow the argument, he’ll be stronger and better able to ward off physical treats to his family.

In the beast-eats-man world of primitive civilizations, this argument might have a rationale.

This then becomes translated into social attitudes.

We’re all conditioned by media images to prefer men and women with a certain kind of appearance.The results on partner preferences are a bit discouraging if you’re a short man.In general, women were more likely than men to think that the man should be taller and they didn’t want to be in a relationship in which they were taller than their male partners.However, I would argue that tall women are portrayed highly favorably in the celebrity world from models to Hollywood actresses, and that these images actually may be having a positive effect on women who might otherwise feel that they are “too tall” for their man.Unfortunately, in the area of personal satisfaction, there was some bad news from this study for short men, who- like the shorter women- reported being dissatisfied with their height.Tall women were more satisfied with their height than short women were.
