    Interesting question! I`m not sure if it affects women that much, but for men, obtaining an important position such as CEO of a company or prime minister/president of a country seem to be affected by height. Men in these positons tend to be tall. For celebrites such as singers, actors, etc. they all seem to be tall because in the entertainment industry, appearance is very important.

    Well, Napoleon was short. An individual's height has nothing to do with ability. history has numorous examples of people who were short in height and famous because of their sheer talent.

    These were just some short-statured individuals who carved a niche for themselves and made sure that their presence was felt in the world. These individuals proved that a person's deed matter more than who he is, and to do that something for which the world will remember you, you need determination and will power, not height. Keep in mind, one of the most popular actors and considered a sex symbol for women is Mission Impossible's Tom Cruise...

      Good points! The singer Prince is 5' 2", and comedian Kevin Hart is 5'4". Essentially being short is no excuse for not succeeding in life.

      I m not short; thus, I needed a hypothesis for why I am not successful. If you are short chances favor you more for success...

      USAMaahmed, Quite jokingly, I would respond by challenging your too-tall friends to a "dogfight" in an F-16.
