This typically describes a man under 5 foot 5 inches. Short man syndrome men usually have a heavier body, a small head , but a larger face, typically are going bald. A man with short man syndrome will try to overcomensate for his small stature by buying oversize cars, always lying, being very controlling, very bossy, and think they are always right. They cannot admit they are wrong. They will align themselves with the people they think can do the most for them, and will use people to their advantage, lying about everything. They will cruise myspace, facebook,...ect... for hours trying to find friends that are female (that they dont really know) just to give the impression that they are popular with the ladies.
Mike bought a oversize SUV even though he could not afford the gas, cause he wants the girls to focus on the car not that he is short. He has short man syndrome.
Nick invite every girl onto his myspace to look like he is popular.

Also known as Napoleon complex

A very annoying and obnoxious syndrome. Short men come down with this when they realize they will always be the smallest adult in the family, group of friends or place of business.

They can also become violent against the wife and children, like a scene out of the movie The Shining.
Dino likes to hire minorities so he can feel better about himself.

Dino treats his brother(who's tall) like an employee and they are partners. People say it's because of his short man syndrome.

Dino: aaaah ha Maddie(the secretary)is dumber than dumb!

Stereotypical analysis of men of shorter stature. Based on the fact that some shorter men act more aggressive to compensate for lack of height. Yet failing to realize not every short guy is like that. Some men are just aggressive whereas others need to be more assertive. (Peep this: No two people are exactly alike)
Ex.1
Guy:That one short guy in the group tried fighting the bouncer. No reason at all. He's got short man syndrome.

Guy2: Yeah I saw that, but that other short guy was just chill in', talking and dancing with women. He's got more confidence, doesn't seem to care about his height.

1)Where a person of short stature believes they have the ability to take on any person at any task. It is a general cockiness that is in a short person to replace the lack of height. Beware of anyone with short man syndrome.

2)When someone who is short gets an unfair natural advantage in some type of physical activity i.e. running, stretching, squating, benching, etc.
1)Guy 1 "Man why is Matt so aggressive towards me?"
Guy 2 "Because dude he has short man syndrome"

2)Guy 1 "I don't get why that guy can squat so much and run so fast."
Guy 2 "Well just look at him he has short man syndrome."

The need for a person of small stature to own a large vehicle (an SUV or a truck).
She's definitely suffering from short man syndrome, she's barely 5 feet tall and she's driving a Hummer. Her eyes barely come above the wheel.
