Subject: Dragging Feet On Floor While Walking?
Why some persons tend to drag their feet on floor and make noise while walking? I have observed that it does not necessarily relate with body weight. I personally prefer making as less of noise as possible. Even when climbing up the stairs, I prefer creating no sound at all, whereas some folks create a lot of sound. Similarly while dragging chairs on floor some subjects will create a lot of noise and others won't.


Then, some persons speak very loudly, even when they're in a personal conversation with someone else in an assembly or in a queue for tickets or in entrance to a hall. I don't like passersby hearing my conversation, be it on phone or with the person who stands next to me in a queue. It's not that I need to keep conversation 'low and private' only when I am surrounded by familiar persons but also when I am amongst complete strangers. My friends don't feel like keeping their voices low when we talk in public and I often ask them for doing so. What do you think this tells about various personality types?


Have you observed such behavioral traits?

i would speculate that in some cases it has to do with a person feeling depressed.

Dragging yes, but I have observed some jolly well people, walking fast and making noise.

I really can't speak to the loud talking issue except to suggest there may be some pshchological factors.

As far as walking is concerned, there may be some physical development problems that have left the person with weakened muscles and they are unable to completely lift their feet off the floor. Or it could just a residual habit from childhood where they started to drag their feet and no-one corrected them or tried to get them to lift their feet.

Another possability is a synthesis of 2 ideas. In the study of Karate there are Kata where the feet are slid along the floor when moving. I also observed a person who had played the 'Role Playing Games' and had incorporated that game into their everyday lives. From these 2 ideas I would suggest that it is possible that a person had studied these particular Kata and had addopted that practice into their everyday life. Some people will addopt some idiosyncratic behavior or article of fasion to enhance their own personal image, this is common among artists.

I have been to Karate school and I agree that such a training suite might be a cause for a subconscious addition of this habit. More food for thought.


Do you suggest that loud speaking might show an urge to be heard?

I don't know, but a hearing problem could be part of the reason.

Yes, hearing problem might be cause of issue, as also happens when we don't get feedback from our own voice's sound if we talk with music on(headphones or without...).

I was pointing to your previous post, where, you suggested about the possibility of psychological factors. smiling face

The act of loud talking could have several psychological factors, one that comes to mind is that some people have a total disregard for others. They feel that they can do whatever they want regardless if it bothers others, they feel no responsability for the comfort of other people.

The idea of the need for attention has been mentioned and is probably a factor with some people, many of these could be researched online for more detail.

I agree, from the first hand experience of having observed behaviour traits of persons who speak loudly.
