Of the five seats in a car, we all know the middle seat in the back is the worst. You’re squeezed on both sides by other people, and there’s no comfortable place to put your legs. But apparently it builds character?
A new study of more than 1,000 people found that kids who usually get stuck in the middle seat grow up to be MORE SUCCESSFUL than siblings who get to sit by the windows.
90% of middle managers say they usually sat in the middle seat . . . so did 72% of business owners, and 62% of people in upper management.
Why? The theory is that all those rough days in the car give you key business skills . . . like being adaptable, rolling with the punches, and staying level-headed in uncomfortable situations.
