A talk-walker is a person who has no personal moral conviction that dictates their actions, rather, they draw upon the moral fiber of others that they see around them who they admire as "edgy," "independent," "hipster," or "original." The result is an avowed affinity to things like vegetarianism, vegan cookies, five grain pancakes, and vanilla yogurt. Another common symptom is wearing outdoor performance clothing in settings where this is completely unnecessary, and claiming that winter camping can be an 'enjoyable' experience.
