Tall women earn more than shorter ones

Tall women earn more than shorter ones


The study by a UK clothing chain said that those British women, who stand at 5ft 8in and above are twice as likely to earn more than 30,000 pounds a year or up to 5,000 pounds more than their friends who are shorter.

“Research shows that tall people are consistently more successful in the workplace. Not only do they earn more but they’re more likely to be in leadership position,” said Arianne Cohen, author of “The Tall Book: A Celebration Of Life From On High”.
For the study, the researchers asked 1,461 women over the age of 16 to give details about their salary and measurements. A fifth of those questioned who fell into the ‘tall’ category said they earned 30,000 pounds and above compared with 10 per cent of women under 5ft 8in, the Daily Mail reported.

The study also found that the taller females were more comfortable with their body in contrast to 90 per cent of females in the ‘short’ category who said they were unhappy with their looks.

Cohen said: “As taller people have a downward eyecast when speaking to shorter colleagues, they are instinctively perceived to have authority and confidence.”
