What your seat says about you

Your decision to choose a window seat or aisle seat (because no-one chooses the middle seat!) says a lot about your personality – supposedly …

According to psychologist Becky Spelman, choosing a window seat means you’re more selfish than someone who chooses the aisle seat.

“Passengers who favour the window seat like to be in control, tend to take an ‘every man for themselves’ attitude towards life, and are often more easily irritable. They also like to ‘nest’ and prefer to exist in their own bubble,” Dr Spelman told The Telegraph.

Passengers who choose the aisle seat are generally much nicer people. Dr Spelman says that they’re usually more reserved, less irritable and more considerate of others.

And, as we’ve already stated, no one actually chooses the middle seat, so whether you’re on the aisle or a window, be considerate of them, give them the armrest and try not to fall asleep on their shoulder.
