What type of subway walker are you?

by Aaron

Stairs? Escalator? Elevator? Which do you take?

The subway offers a unique perspective into some of the basic differences between personalities. How? It all comes down to how you walk. Ignoring any physical or time constraints, subway walkers can be divided into four personality types:

  1. Stairs – Determined and independent; health conscious
  2. Escalator + walking – Efficient, ambitious, and sometimes impatient
  3. Escalator + standing – Laid back, patient, and relaxed
  4. Elevator – Lazy, fun, and spontaneous

No single personality type is “better” or “advantageous” over the other and in this high-paced society, you might often find yourself becoming an escalator + walking personality type just so you can get somewhere on time.

So which subway walker are you?

    What about the girl that pushes and shoves her way to get up the stairs?

    Agreed, except on the lazy and spontaneous. Can you be both? Hmm. Suppose you can, but I guess those two must be rare in the same person. How many couch potatoes all of a sudden say “Hey, let’s go for bike ride in the mountains or take a trip to X”? I’m sure it happens. Maybe they change the channel from Grey’s Anatomy to Nickolodeon without warning. That could be pretty spontaneous too.
