Height and financial success?
I moved from a middle/working class town three years ago to an upper middle class suburb and noticed something odd. The men in my old town (A) are significantly shorter than the people in my current town (B).
At first I thought it was merely confirmation bias and I was ignoring all of the misses. However, whenever I go to a school event, I have the ability to stand back and observe.
When I lived in Town A and went to school events, I would socialize with the dads and found that most dads were shorter than I was. A few were my height, but it seems that nobody was taller than me.
Now that I live in Town B, there are only a handful of dads that are shorter than I am. Most are at least my height (6’1”), and there are a good percentage of them that are taller than I am.
Googling “height and financial success” yields some results, which is just fascinating to me. (“In the U.S. population, about 14.5 percent of all men are six feet or over. Among CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, that number is 58 percent.”
Has anyone experienced or noticed this? Should I fear for my boys because they are small for their age?
