ISTJ roommate knows all of us by how we walk down the stairs -- something I had never noticed.
His analysis is as follows:
ISxJ: Runs/gallops (da-dum, da-dum)
ExFP: Heavy, flat-footed steps
ENTP: "How the hell would I know? She lives on the ground floor!"*
ESTJ (me): Fast, light, steady steps
INTJ: Very, very slow pace
ENTJ: "Saunters, like the goddamn emperor of the house. Ohhh, look at King ENTJ surveying his domain!"*
*there's a reason why we call this ISTJ "house granddad". He's curmudgeonly af.Originally Posted by Nørrsken impersonating EJCC

This is true. I too recognize people by the sound of their gait but there are some people like myself who walk relatively silently.

I usually feel so reluctant and afraid going down the stairs, even ones I've walked over like a billion times already. I walk like I'm a grandma.If you can read this, follow the clues.

Theres something disorienting about going up and down stairs- but for whatever reason Im more likely to trip up than down- fall down and then have like... many many points of contact.
But anyways. I do the same thing. I try to always hold onto the rail and ALWAYS be watching my feet. And yep- ignore those who are sprinting down the steps because ahhhh no.

But seriously- stairways have been my nemesis for so long that I can easily name their biggest evils-
- stairways with landings- especially lots of landings or hidden landings- very likely to trip on landings.
-stairways with uneven steps.
-stairways without RAILS.
-spiral staircases. Oh god spiral staircases and I very much dont get on. They are THE WORST!
And yeah- I would recommend the three points of contact thing. Especially because if YOU do it you wont have to have my dads head in your voice saying- 'mhm told you so' in your head like I do hah.
And yeah. Lots of the times when I fall up its cuz my shoe hits that little lip thingy thats sometimes on stairs and I trip up on it. Tripping up is generally less bad than down though- I mean- its a lot harder to fall very far when you are falling up.

And yes- first of all agree with the pumpkin thing. The goo on its own is worth it. You can do so many wonderfully gruesome things with it.
And secondly.... YOU are part of the problem then! One of those obnoxious scaliwags that clog up the avenues and cause us klutzes so much extra effort. For shame. For shame...
