Tall Men dominate?

How much does a tall man hold a chance for immediate progress in career and life? Is it true that people are generally attracted to tall men? Or, do they really intimidate others, except for the women who fall for them?

Well I do have a very tall son, and he has what I call a "presence" about him. It is his height initially and from there people are attracted to his personality, or at least I think that is it. A female friend of his (not a girl friend, just a female friend) told me once that she was glad that she wasn't interested in him romantically because it was much more fun to stand back and watch the reaction of other people to him. LOL She tried to explain it to me and came up with something like this. He is tall, is very Australian, is proud to be an Aussie and doesn't care who knows it. He has wit, can turn on the charm when it suits him but is also devistatingly honest and doesn't tolerate fools, so everyone knows where they stand with him. He is not afraid to show his emotions, try his hand at new things and can be the life of the party. He doesn't threaten people but is just himself and for that people like him. Now he has done a lot of travelling and despite being overseas for the majority of the last 5 or so years, coming home for short breaks of a few months in between trips, he still retains his uniquely Australian accent and outlook on life. He is very well respected by everyone he meets, is prepared to work for his money (to travel more) and sometimes is brutally honest. At the same time he has a few long term very close friends as well as numerous other friends he has made in his travels. The people who stay in contact with him, and phone here looking for him, range from an elderly couple in Scotland (in their 80's) to people who are in their early 20's, and every age in between as well as from many countries. Our son is 31. We always knew he was going to be tall, and in fact was tall for his age from a baby, so we told him to walk tall, be proud of his height and not to slouch. :) He has done that, and maybe some people are attracted to him because of his height but in general I think it is his personality and outlook on life that makes him an attractive person. That might be a biased mother speaking here, but I can only say what I have been told as well as observing for myself.

I don't think so that tall men dominate. Yes, people are generally attracted to tall men.

Yeh. They do dominate till the shorter one doesn't proove himself more usfel and highted else where. The short guy has to show and express his highness in his behaveior and his achivements. The law is little imbalenced by nature but you can overcome out of it
