Are you a Selfish Airplane Passenger?

Yes, everyone has their own travel habits (some bad, some good) whether it’s bringing along your trusty neck pillow or munching on your homemade snacks. However, the most important factor of your entire trip is where you sit!

Sitting next to the window means you have the best views and a nifty place to lean, but the seat by the aisle means you have easy access to the bathroom and stretching capabilities. Recent studies have shown that choosing a window seat or an aisle seat actually reveals something about your personality…

In an interview with a scientist, it was revealed that those who choose to sit by the window are actually more selfish, and those who sit by the aisle are more reserved.

“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.”


“Aisle passengers are often more sociable and definitely more amenable as people; they are also more likely to be restless fliers and less adept at sleeping on planes.”

There’s no studying showing what it is revealed about those who choose the middle seat – most likely because no one ever does!
