In any competitive environment where opinions clash – as they often do in politics – an inch or two of height is no small advantage. Studies have shown that taller men usually enjoy more social success, partly because others incline to have a more positive perception of them.

According to the authors of one peer-reviewed study that was published in 2015 by the University of Groningen in the Netherlands: “We conclude that human height is positively related to interpersonal dominance, and may well contribute to the widely observed positive association between height and social status.”
