I want to get input from my friends on a kinda weird question to help me calibrate my understanding of how people view walking distances.

So, here is the thinking in my head.

If I walk around the block, I think of it as having walked one block. But if I am describing walking directions, and I tell someone to walk four blocks, turn right and walk another 3 blocks, I think of that as seven block. But walking around a block is pretty much like walking the length of four blocks.

So how do you all describe walking distances?
