    Default The way that ESTps walk/SLE gait

    Does anyone else think the SLE has a swagger of sorts? Or is it just the SLEs I know. I think I know only two, one woman and one man. And both have a similar kind of walk. It's grounded, a bit lazy at times, confident and almost never rushed. Does that sound right?

    The SLE guy I used to be around in school had a walk like that, well minus the lazy part..... But that guy was a little over confident in himself if you ask me, maybe it's just the dominant

    Most Dominant SE's seem to walk like they want to be punched in the balls. They're asking for it, begging for it. Confrontation!

    If you come any closer, I'll beat you with my stick.

    I've still got a little fight in me.

    I don't have a big base of people to confirm this...anyways one anecdote I do have. I was packing stuff to my car one day when a guy who I think was SLE was walking by. He had a sort of relaxed but confident walk. However he constantly made these little movements with his shoulders and arms and head. He was never completely still. It was like his overall appearance was showing kind of confident relaxation but those little movements made him seem a bit restless inside. It was kind of a cat like walking style. Very soft but not lazy. Not at all "rhino like" or fast either. Occasionally making sudden movements. E.g. looking around.

    What was special about this guy was that he seemed to be well aware of his surroundings. I saw him quickly scanning the environment many times. I was paying special attention to him for this reason. I had my car doors open and I almost got the feeling that he is going to steal some stuff if I am not careful. Dunno why. Well, he passed my car really close and I saw him taking some quick looks as if to scan the car, scan what's inside the car, and also scan me. Our eyes met for a short moment when he was right next to my car and he quickly scanned the insides of the car and then me. He saw me looking at him and let his eyes fixate to me for a short moment and then he turned his head away. I think he was aware that I was paying attention to him.

    So then he walked by and kept going but I was absolutely certain that he will look back one more time so I kept staring at him while he was taking distance from me. Then, as I had expected, he quickly turned his head and took one last scan. He saw me staring at him so our eyes were fixated for 3 seconds or so. He never stopped walking when he did his "environment scans" and his facial expression was relaxed but kind of serious all the time. I think he wasn't completely comfortable about the fact that when he looked back I was already staring at him. It was like he had lost his surprise momentum there. Then he turned his head back forward and kept going. At this point I sensed that he was not focusing on me and my car anymore but mentally "moved on" to next thing on his path.

    For some reason this moment is still vivid in my memory. There was some...tension there. Dunno if it was positive or negative.

    Well the SLE guy I would describe as more laid back, maybe not lazy. And I think it's because he's older and tired plus I never see him at work, only in social situations when he's relaxing. lol The SLE woman I know doesn't have a lazy walk at all. But it is a swagger of sorts. She's super confident.

    I once knew this SLE at a summer program I once went to and we were in the same major.

    Everytime majors ended for the day, he would be the first to have his few things packed and ready to leave. He walks in this kinda weird, yeah like you guys said -"swagger", but he was more slightly bent in the middle, with his head just the -tiniest- bit tilted before the rest of his body. His walk is really solid, also really lazy-looking. It looks like he is walking pretty slow, except if you notice he's actually walking faster than everybody else is.
    I tried walking faster than him once. . .and I ended up with a charlie's horse in my calf.
    IEI, perhaps Fe sub.

    hahaha a lot of SLE's are incredibly physically tough. like my ex for example. he basically designed and built a wooden deck for our pool by himself and with non-power hand tools. cut all the wood himself. dragged all the rocks to cover underneath the deck. unbelieveable. when they guy gets a goals in mind nothing stops the motherfucker. LOL but yeah, he would make it look easy....then you'd try to do what he was doing and you'd be like dag, i'm not doing all this.

    I get commented on my swagger quite a lot. That sounds exactly like it. I love doing it, haha.

    A lot of people tend to be "catching up" to me when I walk. I generally do have a sense of purpose when I walk. It's to get somewhere, and therefore I want to get it overwith. No sense in doing something for 10 mins when it can be done in 7. Catch my drift?

    I don't know if I would call it a swagger, but i do have an almost arrogant, definitly confident presence when I walk. If I am with my chick friends and they are "shopping" *cringe* and they are taking their time walking slow, and browsing, I tend to find myself either always having to go back to meet up with them because I find myself always a step a head or so, and the slow doey walk makes me tired and sleepy so I generally tend to go off and "browse" at my own pace til they are done and then come back to join them.
    Yesterday I knew nothing, today I know that.

    usually, when I'm supposed to be walking alongside, or following someone, I have a tendency to daze off and, especially in a crowded environment, I get lost easily. But with SLEs they always walk so fast that it forces me to concentrate on where I'm going so I never end up getting lost lol

    So true.

    I also tend to be a rather fast walker myself (a friend of mine says they always get a workout when they are with me ), I often get annoyed that nobody increases their speed so I can mindlessly follow them.

    Haha, this totally reminded me! For the entire two semesters of school, at the end of the day, after the last period I would always follow this SLE and his route. . . not just bc he was hot, but because he always managed to find a way around the -extremely- crowded hallways. . .like, I had never gotten to my locker that early before.

    Describes my SLE's walk, exactly. It's a lazy, seemingly aimless swagger but it is actually very determined and purposeful. "Plodding" maybe? He acknowledges nothing but the destination. Dude can't even converse appropriately while en route because he so intensely (and somewhat aggressively) focused on getting there. Also walks bent at the waist and neck, like he's battling hurricane winds head-on.

    I'm only 5'4" and he's a leggy 6'2" - keeping up with him across long distances is an Olympic event for me.
