What Your Car Says About You

What Your Car Says About You:

Quote:
Mid-Sized Car: Chevrolet Sedan
The authors of the study found that “mid-sized-car drivers have no distinct travel attitude, personality, lifestyle, mobility, or travel-liking characteristics.” Ouch! Does that mean they’re totally boring? Maybe, or maybe just pragmatic, or maybe they got their cars as a hand-me-down. The owners were more likely to be female and homemakers; they also had higher incomes.
If you’re driving an American-made sedan, you might belong to the group psychographers call “belongers.” That’s those who need to belong to a group, are very nationalistic, and don’t like change. The stereotype of this person is someone who lives in an average town in the Midwest. When not driving a sedan, they may also be in a U.S.-made pickup or station wagon.
What your car says about you - Yahoo! News-

This article can't be right.

I have a travel tude'. I have the personality chicks crave. Ditto for lifestyle, mobility, and travel characteristics.

But maybe I should buy a red one !

What car color says
Not only might the type of car you drive say something about you, so does the color. According to a survey done in Great Britain, certain colors indicate certain personalities. Here are some generalities:
  • Black: Aggressive personality, rebel
  • Silver: Cool, calm, may be a loner
  • Green: Reactive
  • Yellow: Idealistic
  • Blue: Introspective, reflective, and cautious
  • Red: Someone who is full of energy and pizzazz
  • White: Status seekers, gregarious
  • Cream: Contained and controlled

It says:
My 18 year old car wore out (no parts available) and I bought the first one I could see out of (I asked the folks for the smallest thing they had on the lot).

The local Chevy folks didn't want my money.

2005 KIA REO

No, that just means you are a loner senior citizen who likes to play undercover cop ! I bet you even have one of those blue lights for it .,

Gray 2005 Ford Focus. We were overseas, needed a car, and the base exchange had this one in gray they could deliver right away.

I want a bright red Tesla 2.5.

Little blue Honda: Introspective, reflective, and cautious, want to lessen my impact on the earth, and have a reliable car.
That probably sums me up pretty well.
Other than the cautious, I like it. But then again environmentalists are by definition cautious, not wanting to despoil the only planet we have.
But they left out frugal. And I probably would have chosen cherry red if they'd had it.

Silver sports car and a pickup. I must be an adventurous loner that isn't happy with my life.
