Why do people assume most tall girls are athletic?

I am tall and athletic (5'8). The thing is that before people even get to know me, a lot of them assume that I'm athletic and they tell me it's because of my height. So I'm wondering how exactly does height indicate that a person is athletic?

    Generally speaking, girls that are taller have higher levels of testosterone than shorter girls.

    Sports and competition is often one outlet for taller girls, plus because of their height, they are often recruited for such activities. It goes hand in hand.

    Not all tall girls are in sports, but more of them are than shorter ones.

  • Tall people are sought out by coaches in many sports, epecially basketball and volleyball, for obvious reasons, so people are going to assume you're into one of those sports..

  • really? you don't see that? who plays in the nba? almost exclusively tall people. who plays in the nfl? a few short guys, but the vast majority are tall. volleyball? tennis? I mean there is generally a pretty solid correlation...

  • cuz their fat is spread out or they're slim so most people make stupid assumptions. Also, a lot of tall girls play basketball (butches) or other sports like volley ball and soccer

  • I'm the same hight as you, and nobody thinks I'm anywhere near athletic. I think it has more to do with body build, and personal style. I wouldn't worry about it if I were you cause you are athletic, and athletic girls are HOT! So embrace yourself:)

  • I usually assume they are clumsy. Mainly because they do not know how to use their height to their advantage.

  • Well generally tall people excel at sports. For example, it's good to be tall if you play basketball.
