Why Tall Folks Succeed at Work
Posted June 14th, 2009 @ 12:14 pm PST

The Tall Book was supposed to be about tall folks. It really was. And it is indeed a book about tall life and tall culture and everything you ever need to know to be, raise or love a healthy, happy tall person.

But it's also a book about success. Why? Height is easily quantifiable--unlike, say, ethnicity, religion, parenting or your feelings (I believe they're calling it "self-esteem" these days).
Which means that statistically, it's easy to track why tall people succeed in some areas (work) and fail in others (gymnastics, dating while tall and female). You can basically look at tall statistics, and clearly see what behaviors correlate with success and failure. There's a lot that can be learned from watching tall folk--so much so that I think there should be a new university field: Tall Studies.

In the meantime, Penelope Trunk over at The Brazen Careerist just put up a great post about why tall folks succeed in the workplace, and what anyone can learn from it:
