riding style?

I'm trying to figure out what my riding style is. What does the question even mean? commuter, canyons, track, long haul? I don't know maybe I'm being dumb. please enlighten me.

(context: I'm ordering a shock and theyre asking my riding style)

Your "riding style" is are you a commuter, canyon carver, track rider or civil street rider. Are you aggressive or just take it easy.
To me riding style is not just where you ride but your body position while doing it. They need to know so they know what type of shock is best suited for the type of riding you do.
Track riding or aggressive riding usually requires a stiffer shock and commuting usually requires a soft shock.
You're not being dumb. That's a very good question and your original thought on what the question was referring to is correct.

I like to cruise on the Street & check out the mamacitas from time to time.Freeway I like cruising at 80 mph being cautious of the other drivers.Still need to get some more experience under my belt.
