    Ditto.
    But if I'm walking at a leisurely pace as I occasionally do, I generally move out of the way with a smile.
    Unless I'm doing that thing where my head is nowhere to be seen as it's up on some cloud - then I've got no clue I'm even walking.

    I walk on the right-side of the path, like everyone should do to avoid collisions. I'll move aside for old ladies, that's about it...

    On the rare occasions that I'm crossing an open area and on a collision course, I make it clear whether I'm passing them on the right or the left and generally people pick up on it and pass on the appropriate side.

    So in most cases nobody moves because people are generally conscious of...traffic flow, I guess.

    My instinct is to move for people -- I think partly this is a character/personality trait and partly a skill I learned growing up in a big city. I'm *very* good at getting through crowds, like a hot knife through buttah!

    On the other hand, I despise a sense of entitlement or just cluelessness in other people. Especially in DC where there are groups and duos of the upwardly mobile and self-important who act like they own the sidewalk, or people with chips on their shoulders. I'll brush past people or just hold fast and our shoulders/bags/etc. will knock into each other.

    Notice I don't say "I hit their shoulder" or "their shoulder hit mine". Essentially, we are both walking into one another. Just like in Spanish, "The bus left me!" Semantics, the object, etc. etc. so much more than wording.

    I personally think I'm doing everyone a favor, as I'm giving that person a much needed reality check: "The world doesn't revolve around me. If I see someone in the same path as me and I don't move, they might not automatically move out of the way to cater to me and I'll bump into them. Who'da thunk"

    If I'm on a mission, because I'm spacially-challenged, I think people tend to get out of my way.

    When I'm just walking I try to pay attention to my personal space and expect that others will do the same.

    I don't play the "I own this space" power struggle, though. Got done with that by high school.

    If I'm in a rush I will weave in and out at my leisure, which I give full credit to playing excessive amounts of basketball in high school. When I am walking at a normal place I always move out of the way whether it is my fault or not.

    If someone has to walk down the middle of the hallway or on the completely wrong side and not bother to move at all then they have much bigger problems coming up in life than me engaging alpha male mode and standing my ground...Though to be fair it is very fun if you can identify someone such as this before initial confrontation occurs and stand right in the middle of the hallway striking up a conversation with whoever you are with

    This is really a pretty good question. One's sense of self-respect does come into play here.

    I have sometimes encountered people who seem to be deliberately attempting to challenge me to move. Do others have a sense of "I just lost." if they move in this case?

    You know the absolute worst? Going to the grocery store after the oldsters - heh - have gotten their Social Security checks. They jam the aisle up with their carts and socialize. Big day out.

    "How's your sciatica today, Bob?" and like that. Most disruptive and thoughtless. But, whatcha gonna do?

    I'm tall and narrow,so I just weave through people.
    If they're in my way, like I can't get outside, or need to pee, probably the only reason i'd rush through people.. I'll be a bit more forward and say 'excuse me' and step toward them, hoping they move over before I have to touch them. They do.


    This is all not counting the times I attempt to stay out of people's way, and just walk into EVERYTHING.

    Sensing? Balance?
    Those things are made up.
