Connoisseurs of human nature say that it is enough to follow a person's gestures, his gait, posture and body movements in order to draw sufficient conclusions about his character and temperament. Let's take a closer look at the world around us and pay attention not only to our own behavior, but also to how others behave.
A quick or slow gait depends on the temperament and the strength of the urges restless-nervous - lively and active - calm and relaxed - sluggish-lazy (for example, with a relaxed, sagging posture, etc.)
Broad steps (more often in men than in women): often extraversion, purposefulness, zeal, enterprise, efficiency. Most likely aimed at distant goals.
Short, small steps (more often in women than in men): rather introversion, caution, calculation, adaptability, quick thinking and reactions, restraint.
Emphasized wide and slow gait - a desire to flaunt, actions with pathos. Strong and heavy movements should always demonstrate to others the strength and significance of the personality. The question is: is it really?
A relaxed gait is expressed - lack of interest, indifference, aversion to coercion and responsibility, or in many young people - immaturity, lack of self-discipline, or snobbery.
Noticeably small and at the same time fast steps, broken rhythmically: agitation, fearfulness of various shades. (Unconscious goal: dodge, make way for any danger).
A rhythmically strong gait, swaying a little back and forth (with increased movements of the hips), tempting for some space: naive-instinctive and self-confident natures.
Shuffling "sagging" gait, refusal of volitional efforts and aspirations, lethargy, slowness, laziness.
Heavy "proud" gait, in which there is something theatrical, not entirely appropriate, when the steps are relatively small when walking slowly (contradiction), when the upper body is held emphatically and too erect, possibly with a disturbed rhythm: overestimation of oneself, arrogance, narcissism ...
Firm, angular, stilted, wooden gait (unnatural tension in the legs, the body cannot naturally sway): tightness, lack of contacts, timidity - hence, in the form of compensation, excessive firmness, overstrain.
An unnaturally impulsive gait, markedly large and quick steps, a noticeable waving of the arms back and forth: the existing and demonstrated activity is often just vacuous employment and efforts about some own desires.
Constant lifting up (on tense toes): striving upward, driven by an ideal, a strong need, a sense of intellectual superiority.
