What Does Your Car Say About Your Personality?

Aug 3, 2008
There's an old funny saying that claims certain people inevitably start looking more and more like their pets as they grow older together. But did you know that many people also share a lot of things in common with the car they drive, as well?

It's true, and if you keep an eye out for it, you may notice that even you yourself have certain qualities that seem tailor made for your car. Generally, people are drawn to consumer products that represent or reflect their own values, interests and particular talents, and often subconsciously, they purchase things that could broadcast a message about themselves to the rest of the world around them.

The question is, what message does your car say about you, and does it really suit your personality?

To begin with, we don't want to suggest that anyone needs to only buy a car that perfectly suits their personality in order to be happy or successful. On the contrary, here are many factors that are involved in obtaining a vehicle, such as your own personal finances and what you can afford in the first place.

Obviously, finding a car that matches your personality is not as important as, for instance, finding a spouse who matches your personality.

Many people only care if their car starts and gets them from point A to point B, and that's just fine. But if you can afford to be a little picky about just what kind of car you'll be buying, thee are some steps you can take to make sure it better matches your personality.

First, the size, shape and relative power of your car will say a lot about what type of image you want to portray of yourself to divers around you. For a more brash, confident or even powerful personality, a large SUV often suits their needs well. For a more modest personality,it may be better to purchase a less showy sedan or even compact car.

Additionally, for those of us who love living life fast and impulsively, sports cars can be be the perfect compliment to your personality (if you have the money to allow you to purchase one in the first place).

There are some people who also claim that the color you choose for your vehicle can subconsciously convey feelings or attitudes to other drivers. For instance, red is often identified with speed or risky behavior (and it's said that police are more likely to pull over a red car, too). White, a more neutral color, often conveys peacefulness or non-threatening feelings, while black might project a more sinister persona. Greens and blues on cars often signify fun-loving or friendly drivers.

But obviously, the color of a person's car is rarely a reliable way to judge their actual personality.

Lastly, your vehicle might also match your personality based on how its gas mileage is and how environmentally friendly it is. If you are more of a conservationist, a smaller electric-hybrid vehicle would be a great statement to the rest of the world about how important your view of the environment is. Conversely, an SUV with lower miles per gallon might convey an image of someone who is not as concerned about oil conservation or rising gas prices.
