To understand the role of height in attractiveness, we must first understand the "averageness hypothesis". The averageness hypothesis states that if you were to take a composite of a group of similar people (IE: 50 European males) the composite would be more attractive than the individual faces. This is believed to be due to the fact that the face resembles what humans sub-consciously perceive as an "Average human".
In practice an "average face" maxes out at a 7/10. This is due to the fact the average face doesn't contain any overtly di-morphic characteristics. It serves as more of "blank canvas". Compare this to an "average" male face with increased jaw prominence and hunter eyes, and this person could easily be a 9/10.

Despite the fact that preferences for height often produce wildly different results or simply "Taller than me"; We can infer a similar concept of "averageness" applies to height. That being that any large deviation from the average will either Increase or decrease ones attractiveness.

It is almost unanimously agreed that women prefer taller men. However it has been repeatedly said that men over 6'3/6'4 decrease in attractiveness. In the looksmaxx/blackpill/redpill community this has largely been ignored or simply considered an objective lie; However the possibility of 6'3+ being "too far from average" in a similar way some may consider a face "Too masculine or feminine" has never been considered to my knowledge.

Not really, at least from my perspective. I may be biased since latinos like me don't get judged by height

Just suppose SMV ideal is between 1-2 SD above the mean across the board (face, height, dick, frame, wealth/intelligence/earning power, hair genes, etc.) which is 14% - 2% = 12% of men in each category. When you add every significant blackpill up, the chance of being minimum 1SD above the mean across the board is rare and yet that is most young women's expectation before they are willing to settle pre-wall.

Do you have any examples of a 7/10 that has only average features. I would think something would need to be better than average to be a 7/10.

This whole post is about troglodytes like you. If you want to go out to the club and take home women; Everything you say is beyond correct. If you want to be in a relationship or get married or whatever to a normal person. (IE: isn't crippling insecure to the point they need to validate themselves by fucking a new 8+SMV guy every 2 weeks. Normal people

Not literally average looking. If you were to "average" a population IE: composite of 500 white males. The resulting face would be more attractive than the majority of individuals
