“They can use traits such as psychopathy to demand respect and impress romantic partners.

Appearing more powerful may in turn make others perceive them as taller than they really are.”

The average British bloke is 5ft 9in — but many wish they were taller.

Ms Kozlowska said height is “an essential factor in relationships”, which could date back to our ­ancestors needing to fight off competition for mates.
