Yes, as per the psychological experts, even the way you walk can reveal your personality and here is some information about some such walking styles and associated personality traits.

1 The Executive

As an executive, you may be walking quite fast with focused but fast strides. Those with this personality and walk, usually walk very confidently with their heads up. More often than not, they are always absorbed in their own thoughts and will never mind the people around them because they too may occasionally bump into others simply because they are immersed in some idea or the other or planning a project presentation in their minds. If you walk like this, it means you are a goal-oriented person who knows how to be good at solving problems. The only thing is that you may come off as an unfriendly and intense person.

They are always on guard back and are careful before making any connections even if they are genuine.
