The term 'Napoleon complex' is used in reference to Napoleon Bonaparte who many believed conducted his tyrany and invasions as a form of overcompensation for his short stature.
Interestingly however the term 'Napoleon complex' may well be a misnomer.
To recognize that first of all most people aren't going to view you drastically differently as a result of your stature.
Often your perceived shortcomings are just that perceived and if you get rid of cognitive biases then you can see that people aren't actually viewing you any differently.
The term is often used as a derogatory term also to describe those who are perceived as acting this way.
Symptoms Thus the stereotype is that the smaller male with short man syndrome would be aggressive, likely to shout and talk loudly and seek attention and eager to prove themselves.
Smaller individuals also require fewer resources and are less hindered by injury (due to their smaller body weight).
However what this study neglects to take into account is that short man syndrome is used to describe a specific and unusual level of overcompensation.
In other words there wouldn't necessary be a correlation between height and aggression in all cases, rather just one or two outliers who have the 'condition'. If you or someone you know has short man syndrome then how would you go about addressing this?
Causes Of course the primary cause of short man syndrome is the aforementioned overcompensation.
This is one of the ego defense mechanisms as described by Freud, the idea being that the individual could this way protect themselves from the belief that they were smaller in size.
