Here’s some scientific proof the “Napoleon Complex” is bullshit.
A study by the University of Central Lancashire has determined that taller men were more likely than shorter men to lose their temper.

“The results were consistent with the view that Small Man Syndrome is a myth.” – Dr Mike Eslea. ““When people see a short man being aggressive, they are likely to think it is due to his size simply because that attribute is obvious and grabs their attention.”

In the BBC article, Dr Mike Eslea said the study suggested it made no more sense to say diminutive footballer Dennis Wise was aggressive on the pitch because he was small, than it was to say Robbie Savage was likewise because he was blond.
