As some of you may already know, 6'4 is taller than 99% of men and 99.999% of women, But every percentage is not to be treated in the exact same way, let me put it this way:

6'2: Taller than 95% of men

6'3: Taller than 97.9% of men

6'4: Taller than 99% of men

But people misinterpret this as being visibly/obviously taller than 99% of men or "towering over them", we generally agree that a person starts to tower over someone else at 4-5 inches, say 4.5. That means that a person must be at most 5'11.5 in order for you to "tower over them". However, 5'11.5 is around 80th percentile, meaning 1 in 5 of men will "not be" towered by you.

Which could be why people say dumb shit like "6'2 is average" or "6'4 is tallish" or even that it's short (by retards) and are thinking of towering almost everyone (6'7+) but then confuse being "very tall" with a height being "very optimal" and those two do not necessarily coincide.

And not to forget that they don't see themselves from other peoples' perspective, if a 6'4 guy looks at a 6'2 guy, from the 6'4 guy's perspective he may seem (nearly) the exact same height but from the 6'2 guy's perspective, the 6'4 dude will seem giant as 6'2 is already a tall height and people often confuse someone that is the same height as them as being taller (very common phenomenon).

Ironically this is more likely to come from the mouths of people who are actually 6'4 than shorter/taller people, because they get told that they are "so tall" but if you walk outside you will be disappointed if you think you will "tower over" many people on the street

Simple answer: height Keynesian inflation, the same reason why people thing 6 foot is short. All the 5’9 5’10 normies usually round their height to 6 foot which makes 6 foot seem average to foids. Now imagine a 6 footer whos 5’10 friends all claim his height, hes gonna round up to 6’4”, obv a legit 6 foot is above average, but if the majority of 6 footers all claim 6’3 6’4, its just gonna seem above average for the time being.

The Keynesian theory states that GDP will never be accurate, percieved value is easy to measure but actual value is much harder to determine. Same applies to height

lol being 6 foot and claiming 6’4 is just egregious and people would call you out on that every time. 6’0 is tall but not abnormally tall like 6’4. When someone is 6’4 it’s very apparent. It’s like being 5’6 and telling people you’re 5’10 JFL

Exactly! We can only approximate its value, you related it to keynesian economics to me it sounds like the uncertainty principle where we can never be 100% right about a particle's momentum either.

In scrutiny, the more people fraud their height the less we know the true value, the more we know the true value then it must mean people fraud less, but all in all we can't know it 100%.

But yeah 5'10 and even 5'9 guys claiming 6 foot is outrageous

Although 4 inches is 4 inches, a 5'6 guy claiming 5'10 is probably more outrageous than 6 foot claiming 6'4 because the feasibility of being able to call one out depends on whether they are going to be close in height to you, and 5'6/5'10 are around what most people are than 6'0-6'4.

Bruh. You might get away with frauding 6’1 or 6’2 but not 6’4. So few people are actually 6’4 that when you see a guy who’s 6’4 he immediately stands out in a way that 6’0 doesn’t

I mean I'm 6'3.2, 6'4 in the morning and even though they would be similar in height to me, it's rare to see anyone that height whatsoever here, like I said I went to the shop today for a 25 min walk in lidl and back home tallest i saw someone at was 6'1

Theoretically speaking, an average foid is about 5’5 aprox, most of them have awful perception of guys height. Yeah, guys can easily tell youre lying, but they’d have to be an asshole to call you out in front of foids. Men usually mutually “height fraud” , as it provides a benefit not for just one short guy, but for the entire group

The only foids who can accurately perceive height are tall 5’10 + foids, as usually they compare them selves to guys bc theyre insecure. Watch out for tall foids if you wanna fraud

6'2 with some *special shoes* can definitely get away with 6'4 around guys tho.

I’d never try to embarrass one of my friends in front of women but it’s bound to happen on its own if you’re frauding height by 4 whole inches. I worked with a guy who was 6’4-6’5 and he looked huge af, I’m 6’0 without shoes and no way i could fraud to be his height

At the end of the day, guy friend groups are comparable to oligopolistic markets, where firms form mutual coercions for added benefits for every firm. 5’6” guy claims 5’8”, everyone else has to go up by 2 inches aswell.

frauding 4 inches sounds fucking retarded I would never get away with calling myself 6'7 to women, I almost feel like thats worse than a 5'10 guy claiming 6'2.

That’s what I’ve been saying but this guy keeps telling me 6 footers can fraud 6’4 lol. Sure a lot of people fraud height but you can’t always count on other men being unwilling to call you out for frauding 4 inches

If people here think that average zoomer is 6'2 @St.TikTokcel then 6'4 is barely tallish at best

4 inches does sound risky, the usual is like 2-3 inches, but if youre with a group of ppl who collectively fraud 4 inches, then youre good

Well technically, if you wear lifts then thats 2 added inches + 1 inch from hair and you can easily fraud that extra inch.

I m personally 6’1.5” flat and fraud either 6’3” or 5’11 just to piss people off jfl

This is alllllll it boils down too.
 
Good thread. also explains why ppl 5’10-5’11 think they’re short since their eye level is gonna be around 5’7-5’8 and it takes a really short dude for them to tower over like u said

Yes, if you're 5'10-5'11 the guy has to be at most 5'6-5'7 in order to tower over them, for a 6'4 guy that's basically anyone under 6 foot.

the SAFEST amount to fraud is 1 inch or 2-3 cm you will most likely never get called out on this, most ppl do this already 6’0 barefoot ppl claiming 6’1, 6’2 barefoot claiming 6’3 etc. frauding 2 inches is becoming more and more common with gen z (this is where u get the 5’10 dudes claiming 6’0 and the 5’8 dudes claiming 5’10.) but yea frauding 3 or more inches above your barefoot height is incredibly risky u might get away with it sometimes but still not worth it imo

Tbh I still see guys overestimating other peoples' heights by 3 inches. The brian guy from the whatever podcast is 6 foot, yet in pics where he has to lean over to take pics with people ive seen them calling him 6'3 some even 6'4 but rarer, but that mostly comes from people who are not pilled on height.

lol exactly, another coworker told me he was 6’2 and I could immediately tell he was lying by standing beside him. In that situation he was frauding like 2 inches. So imagine 4 inches
 
actualy bare feet 6 feet is pretty tall, most people larp 2-3 inches to their height

ive stood barefoot next to someone who is 6 foot on the money, and as a 6'3 guy they seemed tall to me because they blocked me eye level which is about 4 inches. But from their perspective I would have looked much taller
