Researchers have proven that short and unhappy people tend to be psychopathic

Scientific evidence exists for the Bonaparte Complex.

According to recent study that was published in Personality and Individual Differences, people who are short and unhappy about it might act antagonistically in an effort to make up for their short stature disadvantage.

For the study, 367 adults from the US were selected using Amazon’s Mechanical Turk, a crowdsourcing platform, with a mix of males and women.

The Dirty Dozen Dark Triad questionnaire, which measures degrees of psychopathy, narcissism, and Machiavellianism—a personality trait characterized as being manipulative, cynical, and lacking in morality—was given to the participants.

After that, they were asked to list their height and indicate whether they were happy with it or desired they were taller.

Shorter individuals and those who were dissatisfied with their height were more likely to display symptoms of psychopathy, narcissism, and Machiavellianism, the researchers discovered.

Lead researcher Peter K. Jonason of the University of Padua in Italy was quoted as saying, “Shorter people, particularly those who wish they were taller, are more characterized by characteristics that are likely to make them show-off, be confrontational, and interested in power.”

When considering these relationships, an evolutionary framework suggests that individuals may instead be psychologically strong if they are unable to be physically strong.

According to the researchers, this response may also be advantageous for mating and survival.

Comparing the two sexes, short men tended to have narcissistic characteristics slightly more frequently than short women. However, a person’s chance of displaying psychopathy and Machiavellianism was unaffected by their gender.

Given evolutionary and Freudian considerations, “we anticipated these relationships to be stronger in men, but we discovered only scant evidence for differentiation of these correlations by sex,” Jonason said.

However, not all small people despise their height. Some short men have made a movement out of their short stature, as was evident last spring when it was dubbed “Short King Spring.”

Carolina Vazzana, an online personality, described her boyfriend, David Lopez, as “one in a million” in terms of confidence. He’s not bashful or ashamed to be standing next to me in 6-inch heels.
