Donít worry, you are average not short.

That said, itís true that many studies have concluded that taller men/women (especially men) earn more money and are more satisfied with life. Just do a quick Google search - because taller men are perceived to be stronger, more intelligent, and more like leaders. Also, there is some genetic correlation between height and intelligence, so they may just truly be more intelligent.
