Look at your car – what do you see? Flared wheel arches? Soft-cloth roof? Burnt orange paintwork? Sure, your car may look just like any ordinary car – four wheels, engine, and a steering wheel – but your motor can say a lot about you.
When you bought your car you doubtless didn’t spare a thought for its colour. OK, maybe you did, but only to say it was nice or “just my shade of grey”. But, depending on the colour you chose, psychologists reckon they can tell a lot about your character, personality, life choices and driving style based simply on the colour of your wheels.
Own a red car for instance, and this implies you’re a passionate soul whose appetite for power and performance led you to purchase a sporty, scarlet tinted motor. Own a blue car and you’re more likely to be a safe, no-nonsense driver; a family man perhaps.
Okay, so this is all a bit of fun. But it does have some science behind it too. Studies show colour is an influential decision-maker, and one that has the power to affect mood, behavior and buying choice – whether applied to the walls of your apartment or to the metal shell of your cherished car.
