Are you short or tall?

  1. Yeah, 170cm (5 ft 7) should be the cutoff for short men, thats the lower 25% point for height in the US. Tall is right on the money for the upper 25% mark at 180 cm (5 ft 11). Obviously there's more than just US users on reddit, but US is by far the largest demographic on the site so that's the best reference to use imo.

  2. I am tall for a woman (170cm or 5'7"), but you've put tall for women as like the top 1%, and tall for a man as a little above the western average.

  3. Yea depending on the geographic location these are all a bit off, but I did realize that difference between men and women as well

  4. I mean, even just the word “normal”… I think they were looking for “average” which as you point out is so vastly different in different regions and for different demographics.

  5. Dutch mfs when someone considers 180cm tall (they just left a comment complaining about how Americans think they are the center of the world)

  6. I looked up my height in centimeters before seeing this, but thank you so much all the same! And what’s going on with these categories? 4 inches below average to 1 inch above average (in the US) is normal height for men, and 1 inch below average to 5 inches above average (in the US) is normal height for women? Inch resting. (I had to.)

  7. The global avg of women is 159.5 cm (5’ 2.8) and men is 171 cm (5’7.3). But this is affected by nutrition. What you consider the boundary of tall/short is fairly arbitrary. However, I’d consider the female normal heights to be skewed taller than they should be. There’s a very small percentage of women in the world who are 5’9.

  10. Hey the distribution for the men is actually decently accurate. Metric really helps with this- there's the clice that women in the US are only interested in men above 6 feet tall- when that's in the top 90th percentile of height. Without such a clean cutoff in metric you don't get such a dumb standard.

  11. This is weird, I had to answer "Tall" even though at 182cm I've never felt or thought of myself as being tall.

  12. 180 cm in USA. I feel normal. Not short, not tall. The ranges do seem low though. That said, I used to live in Peru and schoolchildren marveled at my height.

  13. Fucking deflating the numbers, you know normal height is 180-200, all y'all here who ain't 180 cm or taller are short.

  14. lol, was confused when I saw so many "tall" responses. 180cm isn't even 6 ft. That's only the 24th percentile. Come on people.

  15. You're on internet. It took you litterally longer to type this answer than it would have to check the conversion in inches.

  16. I feel like tall should start from at least 190, most people (where I live) are like 183-186 on average, so someone like 178 could be considered short here. But again it's dependent on my local standards

  17. 193.04CM or 6'4. Pretty tall, kinda sucks when I hit my head on things but it's otherwise nice. At all of my jobs people have asked me to grab things for them lol.
