I'm adding a short integer field to a shapefile but when I go to properties it says it is a long integer.

I'm using ArcGIS10.4.1 Desktop.  A coworker was adding a field to a shapefile, specifying short integer.  When she went to properties of that field it says it is a long integer.  When trying to use the Simple Data Loader, the field types must match.  I need the field to be a short integer but it comes up as a long integer.

 

I've tried adding a field to a different random shapefile and it also says Long integer when I specified the field to be a Short.
