Studies show short people are more violent than tall people?

Through the years, we have often heard the phrase, “Dynamite comes in small packages.” But can shorter people really be compared to explosives?

Are some people really more short tempered than others, simply because they are shorter?

According to new research, it seems short people are not only angrier than taller people but are also more violent. That explains so much, just look at Hitler and Yorkies.

Researchers at the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, Georgia, recently did a research project with 600 men aged between 18 and 50. The study focuses on the perception of male gender, self-image and behaviour in relation to drug-taking, violence and crime.

During the survey, the scientists found men who feel less masculine than others, are most at risk of committing violence or engaging in criminal acts.

But the study doesn’t end there. In fact, it shows that those who consider themselves less masculine, an issue also known as “male discrepancy stress,” are nearly three times more likely to commit a violent assault with a weapon. Or assault someone to the extent where the other individual is badly hurt.

It seems that shorter people are willing to bring bigger guys down to their level. One way or another.

This study is actually reinforced by a team from Oxford University. The Oxford University researchers claim that Short Man Syndrome is indeed a real thing.

But how did they come to these findings?

The Oxford University researches found that by reducing a person’s height, two things happen. Firstly, the person feels more vulnerable. Secondly, their paranoia levels increase. This is also known as the Napoleon Complex.

But you know what they say? Just because you are paranoid, it doesn’t mean that they aren’t out to get you. Tall people are so judgemental.

Fun fact, Napoleon Bonaparte was five foot and seven inches tall, which is more-or-less the average height to today’s standards.

While modern day society puts more focus on the body standards of both men and women, it might be that the tests are slightly biased.

However, shorter people do seem to be more prone to outbursts than their taller counterparts. Or is that just me?

What are your thoughts? Do you think shorter people are more violent and angry than taller people? Or do you think that the research teams are totally biased?
