What Your Walk Says About You
After the mockery of Tony Abbott’s walk he has expressed some regret that he never got a walking coach. Does the way someone walks in fact say something about their emotions, intentions or actions?
The answer is yes, everyone’s walking style is very unique and it says a lot about them. This allows individuals to subconsciously identify someone and this recognition can aid in criminal cases. Research has indicated that criminals target people who appear less confident. However, people can change the way they walk to avoid being targeted, by simply changing their stride and the way they hold themselves.
