The automatic association between height and the aforementioned traits has also been found to be much stronger when it comes to assessing men than women.

This means that in general, height is an honest signal of a individual's social status.

Heightism is prejudice or discrimination against individuals based on height.

A 2008 study found that both extremes, tall and short, reduced attractiveness, and a 2006 study found that a lower leg-to-body ratio in men and higher leg-to-body ratio in women increased aesthetic appeal.

Biologically, from an evolutionary perspective, these findings are consistent with data relating height to human health.

Though significant correlations have been found in early and late childhood in both developed and developing countries, in adults, changes in environment and social status reduce the strength of this correlation.

Recent findings suggest that height discrimination occurs most often against racial minorities.

Nevertheless, studies have shown that short people are paid less than taller people, with disparities similar in magnitude to the race and gender gaps. For some people, height is a noteworthy factor in sexual attractiveness.The greater reproductive success of taller men is attested to by studies indicating that taller men are more likely to be married and to have more children, except in societies with severe sex imbalances caused by war.Moreover, research on leg length and leg-to-body ratio conflicts with the notion that there is a distinct preference for taller mates.The brain automatically associates physical size with leadership potential, power, strength and intelligence, an effect which has been discovered in infants as young as 10 months old.Evolutionary psychologists theorise that this is due to height indicating that the individual had been better fed, indicating higher social status and thus resources available to them, as well as indicating general health and physical strength, the latter of which can be useful in asserting dominance.
