This tilted-up angle is selected as it makes them appear more powerful and taller, according to the research. And experts say there are evolutionary reasons why men would do this, as taller men are typically perceived by women as stronger, more fertile and able to protect their family. Women, on the other hand, are more likely to snap their selfies from just above head height, in a bid to disguise any areas of the body they are less confident about and to not appear too dominant to male partners.
