Powerful people overestimate their height PhysOrg - January 9, 2012
The psychological experience of power makes people feel taller than they are, according to research by ILR School associate professor of organizational behavior Jack Goncalo and a Washington University colleague. There is actually a physical experience that goes along with feeling powerful.
Size and stature seems to be very important ingredients in most timelines. This generally references one's height, most often of a man - taller men seemingly more important.
Height and Stature and our perceptions of what is better
The psychological perceptions of how tall men and women should be varies from culture to culture, but most often height denotes power. Remember this is all psychologically motivated, based on brain wiring, and not necessarily true. Short men sometimes tell the brain - this man has self esteem issues about his height - often compensated for my working out and have more pumped-up looking physique, yet he has issues.
The best height is the norm for a particular culture for both men and women, though when it comes to sexual attraction, many men prefer the "babe look" - short woman with long hair and hot bodies.
Metaphysics and Mythology
From a metaphysical and historic perceptive - Gods were often portrayed as very tall which creates the illusion of power and protection psychologically encoded in the human equation. Male Fertility Gods were sometimes portrayed with a large penis - among the most famous - the Egyptian God Min.
Min is an Ancient Egyptian god whose cult originated in predynastic times (4th millennium BC). He was represented in many different forms, but was often represented in male human form, shown with an erect penis which he holds in his left hand and an upheld right arm holding a flail. As Khem or Min, he was the god of reproduction; as Khnum, he was the creator of all things, "the maker of gods and men". As a god of fertility, he was shown as having black skin. Black takes me to Creation out of Africa or the concept of matter and antimatter - the Void where life began and ends as reality Fades to Black.
Email from Ben who does graphics and the home page for Crystalinks:
On a recent tour to Egypt, my wife and I visited the Temple of Thebes in Luxor. The tour guide was making his last presentation as we stood in front of a carving of Min. I asked, "Why is it blackened around his penis? Are people offended by it?" Apparently, people have been rubbing it for good luck.
The story that Wikipedia tells doesn't seem to cover his origin. Min, so it goes, was the weakling of the village, so the warriors didn't take him with them when he went off to fight. When they returned, he had impregnated all the women. They dismembered him and that's why he is missing an arm and a leg.
The sexual component of the human equation is a prime motivating force in keeping the human biogenetic experiment perpetuating. I would imagine as far back as the beginning of the program, penis size was discussed and often considered important. Today there are endless thoughts and jokes on what is large and small and often subjective. Human penis size -- Perceptions of penis size
Most woman will say "the bigger the better" meaning without the man being too large or having too much girth. As with anything, particularly when it comes to sex, it's just a matter of compatibility ... and most often the emotional connection two people have. Let's face it ... in today's world a man does not want to be known for having a small penis, and is often proud of a large one. Women love to tease about these things and say that if the man is too small she cannot be satisfied, so sex is a waste of time for them - whereas a man with a large penis can cause her pain during intercourse. I know the old expression, "It's not the size but how you use it," but that is probably something made up by men with small penises. Once again it's about the couple and their needs.
For the ladies ONLY ...
How many men have you met who over-exaggerate the size of their penis?
Consider this ... If you were a man ... how big would your penis be? Your answer reflects what you want in a man. I'm into 9 and closure ... so I leave you with that thought! :)
