I was told my an SEPT trainer, that in an emergency situation... without direction, the vast proportion of sheeple, will attempt to leave the aircraft through the same door they entered.

I've stopped travelling with a big trolley style check in now, and carry a flat small backpack (laptop, critical documents, etc), that easily fits under my seat (for take off and landing), and behind my legs the rest of the flight.
Airlines need to stop allowing such massive carry on bags in the first place. Crew should lock the over head bins prior to pushback and before landing. Pax should be told, put your passports, critical meds in your pocket, for take off and landing. A simple lightweight locking mechanism, that can be locked in a second when the cabin crew secure the cabin.
Also, only a few airlines tell passengers to put their shoes on for landing/take off.
I read somewhere they pretty much the last person on the flight got off at around 45 seconds after the first person. Certification for aircraft, dictate everyone must be out within 90 seconds only using half the exits available.
