Some new research has only proven what we've thought for a long time: short people are much angrier than taller people. AKA small man syndrome in Aotearoa.
The Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, Georgia, questioned 600 men aged 18-50 on their thoughts about the male gender, self-image and behaviour in relation to drug-taking, violence and crime.
The research found that men who felt less masculine are more at risk of committing violent or criminal acts. Men who considered themselves less masculine were 3 times more likely to have committed violent assaults with a weapon or assaults leading to injury.
The study may not be totally accurate because of the small sample size, but there is some definite links here, so watch out for those short mates of yours!
