Have you ever noticed that short people, were usually born in the last months of each year and tall in the early months?

I remember in our class back in school, that the shortest kids were born in November or December. And the tallest were usually born in the first months like January or February as well.

Anybody else noticed that?

  • For me it's different. The shorter kids were always the older ones, born in the first half of the year or one year earlier and the taller ones would be the younger ones, born in the second half of the year or one year later.
    Growing up, during prep school, I was one of the oldest people in my class, because I was born in January and I was always one of the shortest ones because I'm currently stuck at 5'3". It is still that way.
    I don't know, probably in the year 2000 a switch flipped or something...

    • Well, I was just judging by the school i used to be. Might be a coincidence.

  • Mm. I don't know. I'm 5'1" born in August my boyfriend is 5'7" born in October :) I don't know many people's birthdays to get an idea.

  • What a coincidence. I'm short and so is my mum and we were both in the last couple of months. I'm not ready to take this hypothesis on just those situations. Good idea though

  • My boyfriend is 6'3" and he was born in November. His best friend is 6'5" and he was also born in November.

    Your theory is defunct.

  • Do you really believe that all of the tall people are born in the first few months of the year?

    • @helloitsmethere It emphasizes the importance of the objective recording of data when trying to support or refute a hypothesis.

    • bahahha I was born on new year's day LMAO

      ... but mb the asker was just in a school where the cutoff was dec 31? that way the older kids would be taller, which would make perfect sense.

  • That's not true. I've always been one of the tallest, if not the tallest, in my classes, and I was born on the last week of November. The tallest girl in my HS class was born in December 20th.
