"That's a big fat lie. In business settings, people respect your power
more than your height when you have a big power differential. If you're
just starting out then maybe it will be difficult. But if you're a 5'5
CEO in a room of lower paid execs from your own company you're going to
be treated with deference.
Height isn't everything. Some smaller
people makeup for it by projecting their voices more. There are just too
many variables involved in human interactions to boil it down to one
thing like height. Life is more nuanced."
You just can't help being wrong all the time, eh?
For both men and women, the relationship is striking: a
one-inch increase in height is associated on average with a 1.4 percent
to 2.9 percent increase in weekly earnings, and a 1.0 percent to 2.3
percent increase in average hourly earnings.
