What Walk Are You?

Type of Trot: Speedy Gonzales
What Your Walk Says: If you’re a fast walker, you may also be a fast worker which is prized in some setting but also may be problematic if you’re so fast that you forget to pay attention to certain details or if you overlook something important.

Type of Trot: Strutting Your Stuff
What Your Walk Says: If you’re someone who struts, you’re certainly projecting confidence and capability, but you could also be sending out signals to others that you’ve got a big ego, which could be a turnoff.

Type of Trot: Clack-Clack-Clacker
What Your Walk Says: You certainly aren’t afraid to be noticed if you’re such a heavy walker that your heels announce that you’re coming way before you actually arrive, but if you work in an environment where quiet and calm is key to productivity, you could be sticking out like a sore thumb.

Type of Trot: Always Behind the Group
What Your Walk Says: Lagging behind in a group sends the signal that you can’t keep up or are not interested in the others, which is a problem in workplaces where team players are most valued.

Type of Trot: Silent Sneaker
What Your Walk Says: If no one knows you’re coming until you’ve arrived, you and your hard work may go unnoticed.

Type of Trot: Slumped Over Shoulders
What Your Walk Says: Walking into a room with your shoulders hunched over evokes a lack of confidence in oneself and one’s abilities. Potential employers or current bosses might question their confidence in you if your walk suggests that you aren’t confident in yourself.

Type of Trot: Eyes Straight Ahead
What Your Walk Says: If you’re known for walking with your eyes straight ahead, you’re probably known as a confident and focused worker with your eyes on the future.

Type of Trot: Slow Walker
What Your Walk Says: Some may be annoyed by a slow walker, assuming that they are ineffective, but certain types of jobs may appreciate it as a sign that you are thoughtful and detail oriented.

Type of Trot: The Zig-Zagger
What Your Walk Says: If you find it hard to walk in a straight line, fellow and future workmates may see you as someone who is all over the map and not especially efficient.

Type of Trot: Eyes Down
What Your Walk Says: People who walk with their eyes focused on the floor are not only deemed unconfident but also appear to only be focused on the here and now and not interested in what’s in front of them or upcoming events.

The first one who guesses which walk I am will win a download of "SOMEONE TO LOVE ME"

I think you're a slow walker because I can see you in your garden looking at your flowers, moving really slowly and relaxed. :)

Tina said...

zig zagger lol

Tara W said...

Speedy Gonzales is my guess

Tara W said...

By the way, I loooved this story. It must have been very difficult writing a story- basically with just the hero and heroine and still keep it extremely interesting. The winner of this story will be very happy! It was a great read.

Ruth C. said...

I would guess eyes straight ahead.

Looking forward to reading this book.!!

Debbie Wallace said...

Okay ladies, we have a winner.

Sorry Braible, I had to chuckle because I don't know what relaxed is. I have to be doing something almost ALL the time.

Tina, zig zaggar? Maybe if someone was shooting at me! LOL

Ruth, you're about a third right. Most of the time I probably walk with my eyes straight ahead. But I do like to look around me, too.

The walk that describes me to a T is Speedy Gonzales! I have ALWAYS been a fast walker. And you wouldn't think it to look at me. I'm so bad that I literally have to stop to let people catch up to me.

You're ALL Winners for playing and I'm going to give you each an ebook. Take your pick of one of the following three and let me know which one:)


Tara, I'm so happy you enjoyed "Someone to Love Me", thanks for the great review. It was a very hard story to write because as you said, it was just the hero and heroine in the whole story except for the very end. I don't think I could do that again.

Tara W said...

I would like Against The Odds. I already have the other two. Thank you so very much.

Debbie Wallace said...

Tara, please email me so I can send you the book:)Thanks!

braible said...

Debbie, WOW, thank you. That's SO nice of you!! (I've been off a couple of days job hunting) How funny that I picked the exact opposite, lol, :) I'm speedy too, lol. Always got someplace to be. Anyway, thanks very much!

braible said...

ooops, forgot to say I would like to read "Against the Odds"
What a dork

Cheryl said...

Thanks for sharing very interesting. I would have to say I am a Speedy Gonzales

Debbie Wallace said...

Hey Becky, please email me so I can send you a copy of "AGAINST THE ODDS". Thanks!


Debbie Wallace said...

Me too, Cheryl. It's tough being a speedy gonzalez. Do you find that you're also a very punctual person?
