Look at these physiques. Which one do you think belongs to an incel and which one belongs to a slayer? Or, how about, which one belongs to a woman and which one belongs to a man? This is a question that everybody on here should be able to answer, as the answer is intuitional and hardwired into your genetics. You don't need to go outside to know the answer.
As some of you may have already realised, this chart shows the male body proportions with age. The physique on the left is a baby, while the physique on the right is a fully grown male. While a lot of things differ between the two, such as midheight and limb length, I would like to draw your attention to the skull size. In the baby phyqisue, the head makes up 1/4 of the total height. In the male physique, the head makes up 1/8 of the total height. Big skulls (in relation to bodysize) are a neotenic, i.e baby or 'cute' trait. In relation to bodysize, the average woman has a bigger head compared to the average man. Women with bigger heads are more attractive, as neoteny is attractive in women as it shows youth and fertility. In men, neoteny and therefore big heads are unattractive, resulting in the zero dimorphic, incel look.
With the science out of the way, let's have a look at how skull size and body proportions affect your perception of others, with examples:
The physique with the smaller head looks as if it has a better frame and more muscle mass. You may also notice that the body with the smaller head seems taller, even though they are both (nearly, i tried my best) the same height. Don't see it? Not enough proof to convince you? Have a look at this:
Look at this alpha male. Big, lots of muscle mass, 6'2" height, insane shoulder to waist ratio. Long hair and epic music in the background. A Nordic viking. Now skip to the end of the video, where he poses in the river and puts a large helmet on. His 6'2" height (that is his legit height) gets instantly turned to SHIT. This is more evident in profile view. At 1:49 (back pose) he literally looks like a dwarf.
Summary: In men, a small head in relation to the rest of the body is attractive. This is for two reasons. 1) A big head is a neotenic trait, which is unattractive for men. 2) A big head means the person is short (think about it: people way taller than you, don't have a head much bigger than you. Your head sizes are almost the same, but your heights could differ by a whole 6 inches).
This is why height is a bigger element of frame than you might think.
