Speaking of statistics, men are considered short if they are 5′7″/171 cm or shorter (1 standard deviation below average). They are considered very short if they are 5′4″/163 cm or shorter and “midget” if they are 5′1″/155 cm or shorter.
Furthermore, is 5 feet 4 inches short for a man? But there was no difference in the ratings between tall and average height women. Participants also rated men described as “short” (5 feet 4 inches), “average” (5 feet 10 inches) and “tall” (6 feet 4 inches). But participants viewed tall men as more athletic than average (and short) men.
Subsequently, question is, is 5 feet 5 inches short for a man?
5′5 is by no means short. You will find that in Canada you would fit right in with the rest of the male population. 5′5 is a great height for a man.
Is 5 feet 10 inches short for a man?
This would be considered “Kinda Tall,” which in the West would be 6′0″ barefoot. So, in some places, 5′10″ on a male is not “short.” But regardless, its still not a “good” height for males.
