What Your Sitting Position Says About Your Personality

Humans spend the majority of their days sitting. Many people may not realize that the way they’re sitting gives a glimpse into their personality. The way you cross your legs or put your hands in your lap while sitting can say a lot about a person. Keep reading to see what your sitting position truly means.


WHY SOME PEOPLE SPREAD OUT WHILE SITTING

It can sometimes be annoying sitting next to someone who spreads their legs out wide while sitting. When this position is analyzed, it usually comes off as chaotic.

These people tend to have trouble sitting still or concentrating on one thing at a time. They will likely speak before thinking about what they’re going to say, are easily bored, and love fast-paced environments.


WHERE YOU CHOOSE TO SIT CAN BE A CLUE TO YOUR PERSONALITY

If you’re given an empty bench, couch, or other seating area, it makes a difference where you sit. People who sit in the middle of these seats tend to be more confident.

Introverted or shy people may choose the side because they don’t want to be surrounded by others. The outgoing people who sit in the middle show that they are bold and can make friends easily.


CROSSING YOUR ANKLES CAN MAKE YOU SEEM LIKE ROYALTY

One way to look a little more sophisticated while sitting is to cross your ankles. Someone who sits this way comes off as refined, elegant, and down-to-earth.

Since this position is a little more relaxed, it causes both yourself and those around you to feel comfortable. Some may notice that members of the royal family usually sit this way.


SHOW SOME FLEXIBILITY BY SITTING CROSS-LEGGED

There’s a reason why people who practice yoga or meditation choose to sit in the cross-legged sitting position when they’re not practicing. Those who choose this style tend to be more open and carefree.

When people sit cross-legged with their knees out to each side, it can be interpreted as being open-minded and wanting to hear new ideas. Not only is this position physically flexible, but it’s emotionally flexible as well.


PEOPLE WHO RECLINE ARE VERY OBSERVANT

The world can be filled with a lot of external stimuli that can make it overwhelming. If you see someone sitting in a reclined position, it could mean they’re just trying to take it all in.

Recliners tend to be more analytical and would prefer to observe a situation, instead of acting out. These people are also very considerate and would likely be called empaths.
