If there’s one thing I know about plane travel, it’s that people who sit in the window seat are the worst.
I know because I am one. An unashamed, unapologetic seat hog who not only wants the most space, but who also wants the best view so I can take the perfect Instagram snap:
Nothing annoys me more than specifying upon check-in that a window seat is my only option, only to find that all those luxurious spots are “already allocated”.
I’ll glare across the aisle as I watch someone curl up, rest their head upon the plane walls and take a peaceful, undisturbed nap, whispering ‘that should be me’ under my breath.
It turns out that where a person chooses to sit on a plane can tell you a lot about their personality.
Psychologist Dr Becky Spelman told Telegraph Travel that those who favour the window seat have more ‘selfish’ personalities.
“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,” she said.
