Short People Are Angrier Than Tall People, Study Finds

It looks like the term “short-tempered” actually means something even more literal right now!

Anger is a normal emotion that humans experience from time to time but there are some who are just more aggressive than others. A lot of them use it as a coping mechanism, while others use it to control others. But what if we told you that there is actually a reason why some people tend to feel angrier than others?

A new study has found that people that are shorter tend to be angrier and more vio!ent than people who are taller.

A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study looked at 600 men between the ages of 18 and 50 and concluded men who “feel less masculine” are three times as likely to commit vio lent acts. Because being shorter makes them feel inferior they are more likely to lash out or distrust others. Researchers noted that being short literally affects a person’s quality of life.

It looks like the term “short-tempered” actually means something even more literal right now! They used to say don’t make a hungry person angry, but it seems like you’ve got to think twice when it comes to short people too.

In the past, researchers at Oxford University found that “Short Man Syndrome” was an actual phenomenon that people often call the “Napoleon Complex.” Shorter people have stronger feelings of vulnerability and higher levels of paranoia, according to experts.

Living in a society where everyone is so focused on the superficial body standards for both genders, it seems like this is taking a toll on many people. Due to stereotypes, the height of an individual has now turned into another body shaming issue which can actually be a trigger for some people.

Of course, this is just a study. It doesn’t mean that all men of small stature are always really aggressive. Besides, only 600 men cannot provide conclusive proof of the whole lot.
