Given the above-average height of CEOs and presidents, anybody would think they’ve been chosen for their stature.

    Unless the boss is quite short - then they tend to hire others shorter than themselves!

    There is something to be said about the presence of taller people. I am quite tall, and it is hard for people to tell if I am intimidated or unsure, because even if I don't stand straight I am generally a good few inches taller than those people around me.

    I do occasionally meet people who are overly aggressive in how they deal with me as well. I know for a fact that I am treated differently because I am tall. It is a weird world we live in.
