Today, I was in the mood to conduct a random analysis of why people have a strong aversion to sitting in the front. It came to me in an inspirational flurry as I was chatting with one of my close friends, let’s call her Kat.
Therefore, I have made the following observations.
Preferred seating location: Back benches/seats
Reason: “In class, all the teachers have a clear view of the front desks. Not possible to sleep. Also if you do fall asleep, your head will bang the desk top and it’s way too embarrassing.” (paraphrased)
Is Reason Convincing?: YES.
Preferred seating location: Middle to back row benches.
Reason:”The front row attracts too much attention. It’s slightly unnerving. ” (paraphrased)
Is Reason Convincing?:POSSIBLY. YES.
Preferred seating location: No specific preference
Reason: “Depends on mood. If in a solitary mood, I would choose a seat near the big window and enjoy it for a while. But generally in the bus I prefer talking to my friends so I’d go sit with them. It doesn’t really matter where they sit.”
Is Reason Convincing?:YES. BUT INCONCLUSIVE.
CONCLUSION : It has been duly noted that the average human being thus far tends to stay away from direct attention of people, comparable to the way chameleons blend into the background. Though sociable as an individual, when in the collective environment, one tends to shy away from unnecessary attention.
Te inference to be made lies in your hands, people of the Universe. Till tomorrow(if I’ll be there) and have some food for thought. Brains get hungry too 😉
