Proof that the average height is 5'9
#1
I see a lot of 5'8+ dudes who say 6'0 is average just so they have an excuse to complain, particularly on r/short. People think they are a better judge of average height than rigorous statistical analysis just because they are victims of confirmation bias and are bad at judging heights

Here is a test so you can see for yourself

Step 1: Get a LEGIT 5'9 guy

Step 2: Go to a public area 

Step 3: Watch this 5'9 guy walk around for a few minutes and compare him to other men

I guarantee you he will look completely average. He will taller than about half of all men. A legit 5'10 would look solidly average and slightly taller than most men. I honestly have no idea where people are getting these 5'10+ figures from since there is no data to support it.

Only trolls say 6 feet is average. This thread does a good job of showing how tall 6 feet is:

The average is 6'0 for sure. No ifs no buts. 5'9 is quite short for a young man. I'm a legit 5'8-5'9 and a high percent of teenage girls were taller than me when I visited America

In some areas it definitely is. The cutoff for short are 5'10 in dating, 5'9 in normal areas, and 5'10 in taller parts of the US. The op didn't really provide evidence he basically just told us to go out in public and somehow try to asses The average. 5'10" isn't short anywhere so that is the universal cutoff. If the all around average is 6'0", what is the young average?

There are plenty of people on here who think average American is 5'8. Why don't you call them trolls? 6'0 and 5'8 are both 2 inches away from the measured average of 5'10

Oh and your "test" doesn't work. My 5'8 friend looks average in Europe but when we traveled to America, he looked tiny. There's a reason why 5'8 actors like Robert Downey Jr and Jeremy Renner look very small

Measured average in the US is 5'9", not 5'10".
