The latest study in the journal Psychiatry Research, scientists showed that being short than expected makes many people feel worse about themselves and more fearful that others are minimising them.
The research shows how being short cause low self-esteem that leads to paranoid thinking. Short people according to scientists develop more serious mental health problem. Across the world, being tall is associated with greater career, relationship success and power. Height is taken to convey authority and many people feel taller people are more powerful. Daniel Freeman of Britain’s University of Oxford says short people feel inferior and this causes them to feel overly mistrustful.
