Which height range is the most underestimated?
#1
Which height range do people underestimate the most?
#2
From my experience people underestimate 5'6-5'7 a lot. When I talk to someone about height they almost always assume that I'm 5'8" so yeah it's quite underestimated. Then again the same can probably be said for every other height thanks to all the liars.
#3
Probably 5'9". It's average but many people think it's short

I would say your height (5'11) is the most underestimated actually. Think about it. Almost everyone thinks 5'11 is average when it's clearly above average even in tall countries like America and Canada. Hell some morons think it's a little short too!
#5
All heights are underestimated because the majority of people lie about their height. My height is underestimated a lot (most people think I'm 6 feet or taller) and so is 6 feet. I dare say that heights over 6'3" are more underestimated than below average heights because of how uncommon they are. People exaggerate the height of taller people a lot.

Agree completely. 6'5" in particular is highly underestimated. People just don't realize how tall it is. No one believes me when I say I'm 6'5"

I agree that higher heights are more underestimated than average ones. A 6'7" guy could easily claim to be 7 feet tall and many people would believe him or at least think he's close but a 5'7" guy claiming to be 6 feet would be laughed at. It's harder to determine the height of people who are much shorter or taller than you.

But those guys do not underestimate their own height, other people do. On the other hand people between 5'9" and 5'10" often underestimate their own height, because they're constantly hearing how any height under 6 feet is bad, so they ignore the fact that around half of American men are shorter than they are.
#9
6'2" is very underestimated too. People think it's not that tall, but it is. It's funny hearing them say "only 6'2?!"
#10
6'0". Many people think it's just average, yet I've been called tall many times without people knowing my actual height, even by some guys who are taller than me. In their minds they must think every 5'10-5'11 guy they see is 6'0+

I'm surprised you're the first one who mentioned 6 feet. 5'11-6'0 is the most underestimated range without a doubt!
#12
I agree with 6 feet too
#13
6-6'1. Often mistaken for a 6'2 guy which is crazy. Although not really considering all the liars
#14
I'm going with 6'0". People assume it is average or only slightly above but it's really low tall, being at least the 80th percentile in most western countries.

I measure 185 cm in the morning and a little over 183 cm at night and people usually guess that I'm in the 6'1"-6'2" range. I have even been guessed at 6'3". I think it goes to show how Americans have such a skewed perspective of height; I see guys clearly shorter than me (usually 5'9" to 5'11") claiming to be 6' with no one questioning them.
