    TSC: Group dynamics is one of the most powerful forces in psychology.  If you are surrounded by a cultural norm which says that shorter people are inferior (or that short men are inferior), then you are unlikely to publicly challenge such a notion.  This “Group Think” will even affect people who are short and have firsthand knowledge that the social norms are invalid.
