That is a really interesting observation, and one that is pretty easy to test in a good controlled experiment. Cool observation.


Standing also creates a different energy among people. For example, when I facilitate group processes I prefer to have people stand because they seem to be more upbeat, animated and engaged in the process. I find that when they sit down they come obsessed with the minutia and want to analyse everything to the nth degree.
