I am mot sure. Otherwise people might be tempted to replace whatever evocative description by simple word abilities like "strong", "tall" or "clever"

On my side I prefer to keep such a thing as "Tall" as a physical aspect that usually cannot be improved. "Standing Tall" or "Towering above others" are another story altogether. Even "Massive physique" I see as improvable. Anyway, that is another debate.

>Or "over-optimistic", "over-confident"...

All good choices.
