6. Tall

Being tall is seen as good. Being short as bad. It appears that to be sexist, or racist is not
allowed but being heightest is.

This comment by the prime minister is not a surprise. Private education has always emphasised    www.counsellingme.co.uk
competition. The whole private school system is set up to instill winning and having an edge over the opposing team. Competition in teenagers breeds a nastiness when losing. In an environment where competition is encouraged in a solely male environment anything goes. A loss of face is shameful so losing is hard to bear in the public school system. Nastiness and unpleasantness when losing are inevitable.

The Square mile of the City is just an extension of the public school system. Win at any cost. Losing is shameful.

So for David Cameron an old Etonian to attack the speaker of the house over his height was natural for him. Being tall is associated with size and power.  The animal kingdom survives on power and size with some notable exceptions. Anglo Saxon culture generally being of tall stock admires the Tall.

Any other area where Tall is revered is sport. For obvious reasons.

Until physical power and strength of the Tall person is seen as dominating the talent, intelligence of a shorter person the Tall person will always be perceived as good or better.
