Your Airline Seat Preference Says A Lot About Your Personality

October 31, 2017

Did you ever think that picking a seat on an airplane says a lot about your personality?  While there are the practical reasons for picking an aisle or window seat, with aisle devotees pointing ut the ease of lavatory access and the freedom to get up for a walk around and window seat devotees stating leaning up against the bulkhead for a nap or a terrific view as reasons to sit inside.  However there are psychological reasons at play, says one psychologist. Passengers who favor 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. Those who prefer the aisle are more likely to be more sociable and definitely more amenable as people. They are also more likely to be restless flyers and less adept at sleeping on planes.  But window seat fans may be a better friend of the airlines as one travel web site found out.  A survey found 55% of travel booking requested a window seat while 45% preferring the aisle, with 34% of window seat passengers willing to pay more for a window seat compared to 15% of aisle passengers willing to pay for the privilege.  That leaves the poor guy or gal in the middle seat who is hoping for the best!
