Oxford University academic Professor Daniel Freeman tested how height affects personality in 2013.

He invited 60 women to take a simulated underground train journey while wearing virtual reality glasses.

I have listed a few dating myths that will begin to shed light on your most intimate dating troubles.

It sucks to be rejected by hot and sexy babes, and it sucks to be alone.

It sucks to be so nervous around a woman that you babble incoherently, and it is even worse to act like a stud and have her slap you in front of your buddies. Get out, date, deal with the inevitable rejections, have fun, and learn about the machinery in your own head that leads to trouble and failure with women.

The Tube trip was as realistic as possible — with noisy rumbling and swaying motion — and the carriage was populated by computer-generated people.

The volunteers took two journeys — one at normal height and another with their viewpoint altered to replicate how the journey would look if they were about a head shorter.‘It was clear that being lower made people feel less confident in themselves,’ says Prof Freeman. And, with this added sense of vulnerability, the participants felt more mistrustful of the people around them.

One study suggesting the short man complex is real came from Professor Abraham Buunk, of Holland’s University of Groningen.

Psychologist Dr Glenn Wilson says: ‘For every nasty little Napoleon or Hitler, there’s an equally nasty Saddam Hussein or Colonel Gaddafi who is tall.

No one really knows why tall people — and particularly tall men — do so well in life. Tall men are seen by women as being healthier, fitter and stronger, looking all round the better catch.

But what evidence is there that these inequalities are matched by seething resentment and anger among short men?

It’s easy to think of case examples but scientific evidence is very limited.’In an unusual — and slightly silly — study, men of different heights duelled with wooden sticks.

In each fight, they were battling a stooge who was told to provoke a response by deliberately rapping their opponent across the knuckles.

This happened in a virtual-reality simulation but we know people behave in VR as they do in real life.’Psychologist Dr David Lewis claims to have identified a ‘Tinker Bell Complex’, named after the feisty fairy in Peter Pan.
