What your walk says about you

Recommended Posts

We often think we can read someone’s personality from their gait – but while many of those assumptions are wrong, your walk may nevertheless reveal the one thing you are trying to hide.

If you saw a man walk into a bar with a John Wayne swagger, you might assume that he’s a confident, tough kind of guy. Or perhaps you’d have less polite thoughts. Either way, you probably wouldn’t be able to help yourself from jumping to conclusions about his personality based on his gait.
Psychologists have been studying these assumptions for well over three quarters of a century, and their findings suggest that most of us do tend to make very similar interpretations of other people’s personalities based on their walking style. After watching that wannabe cowboy walk into the bar, the likelihood is that you and I would agree about the kind of personality he has.

You can tell a lot about a person from their walk especially if you know what you're looking at. A physiotherapist (my sister is) can tell if you're out of alignment or in pain for ie. 

A swagger can be bravado or it can be a bad back. Body language doesn't lie, it's often our understanding of what they're saying that's misinterpreted.
