You Drive a Porsche: Women (Men) Think You Must Be Tall (Short), Intelligent and Ambitious
We show that high-status products (e.g., Porsche) are an effective signal of desirable traits in men (e.g., intelligence, ambition). Interestingly, these products have opposing inferences about owner’s height: women perceive a male owning a high-status car to be relatively taller (shorter) than if the same male owned a low-status car.
