Have a look at the Forbes 400. A lot of them are short, and many (such as Sheldon Adelson and Michael Bloomberg) are very short.

You are right, and I missed it (only read the one about "Attractive people see greater success at work").

My apologies.

Attractiveness counts so much in the workplace. That's why I usually wear contacts (instead of glasses), and dress contemporary at work. It's a youth-focused society, especially in the work place (unfortunately).

I can't help my age (glad to reach it), but I CAN help my appearance. I do whatever is necessary to look good.
