There was also a very practical reason that motivated Stulp and his team to investigate height preferences.

What’s interesting about my client, Alexis, is that she had it wrong when it comes to her attitude about short men.
All this time, she’d told herself that she didn’t like short men because she simply wasn’t sexually attracted to them; in fact, the real reason she wasn’t attracted to short men was because she had a fixed image in her mind of what a man should look and act like as a result of her upbringing, and she needed the men she seeks out romantically to fit the same exact image of the men in her family.
