The Subconscious Bias

Two men are having a casual conversation. One is 22 years old, attractive, lean and stands about 6 foot 4 inches tall. The other is in his thirties, not-so-attractive, medium build and stands about 5 foot 5 inches tall. The topic of physical appearance comes up and the tall man proclaims matter of factly, "You can be dumb as a bag of rocks, but if you look good on the outside, people are going to take you seriously and respect you." The short man sighs. Not less than 10 minutes later the two men are met by their colleagues. All conversation is directed at the tall man and the short man is completely ignored.
