Last year, we told you about research that shows taller people have healthier livers. Did that make you jealous? According to a new study, it probably did. Not only are shorter people more susceptible to liver disease, but they’re more prone to envy, too.
Two universities in Spain and the Netherlands worked together to analyze the jealousy of over 500 men and women. Men, they found, are jealous of other men who are perceived as attractive and wealthy; but these feelings were notably amplified in the shorter study participants. Women tend to envy romantic rivals’ charm and beauty, especially when the other woman is taller.
While vertically challenged men may justifiably envy taller guys (research confirms they have more successful romantic lives), women of average height might want to put those jealous urges in check-experts say they’re actually considered more datable than tall women.
