Has anyone ever told you you have “tall Zoom energy”? The phrase has been a topic of conversation in recent months as co-workers who first got to know each other through screens have gradually been meeting in person. As people slowly trickle back into their in-real-life workplaces, they’re making the sometimes awkward discovery that the disembodied heads they got used to chatting with actually belong to full people of various heights. Finding out someone is taller than you thought, or shorter than you thought might change the vibe, for better or worse. University of Toronto psychology professor Nicholas Rule adds that telling someone they seemed tall might emphasize that they are, in fact, not, he says, “It’s two sides of the same coin. I’m not sure how I would feel about that. Are you suggesting I’m some kind of Napoleon? I have a bigger personality than my body? I’m outsized for who I really am?”
