Personal space is “a portable, invisible boundary surrounding us, into which others may not trespass” (Bell et al., 2001, p. 228 as cited in Author unknown, 2017, p. 133). This invisible region maintains privacy and acts as a buffer against overstimulation or perceived threats against emotional wellbeing (Author unknown, 2017; Dosey & Meisels, 1969).
Hall (1963 as cited in Author unknown, 2017) identified four types of personal space, each of which allow different allocations of space for personal interactions. These are intimacy, personal, social and public zones.
Dani Ashley (2012) describes four classes of environmental features which reflect territoriality: symbolic barriers, actual barriers, traces and detectability. Symbolic and actual barriers display ownership and delineate the boundaries of a territory, while traces and detectability discourage unwelcome guests from invading another’s territory (Dani Ashley, 2012).
Territoriality is defined “as a set of behaviours and cognitions an organism or group exhibits, based on perceived ownership of physical space” (Bell et al., 2001, p. 256 as cited in Author unknown, 2017, p. 134).
