It might be a tall order for some women to accept. But shorter ladies earn lower than their loftier colleagues, a research claims.
All those who stand at 5ft8in and above are twice as likely to earn greater than 30,000 pounds annually – or up to 5,000 pounds more than their vertically challenged friends.
The research workers asked 1,461 females over the age of sixteen to give details about their earnings and measurements. A 5th of those questioned who fell into the “tall” category said they earned 30,000 pounds and above compared with ten percent of women under 5ft8in.
At the same time, 20 percent of the tall ladies said they saw their height as a source of “empowerment and guru” in contrast to just five % of shorter women.
And the study exposed that the taller you are, the more comfortable you are likely to be with your body. One fourth of ladies over 5ft8in said they would not change anything about themselves. In contrast, 90 per cent of females in the “short” category said they were unsatisfied with their looks.
Research indicates that tall persons are regularly more successful in the office. Not simply do they earn more but they are more likely to be in authority positions.
As taller persons have a downward eye cast when speaking to shorter fellow workers, they are instinctively perceived to have authority and self-confidence.
This means that those who are taller are respected by their colleagues and employers, giving them a thriving atmosphere that leads them to more success.
