Think Your Car is SO You? You're Probably a Road-Rager!
What’s your car like?
Is it large or diminutive? Boxy or sleek? Is it decked out in bumper stickers, messy and “well loved”? Is it clean and pristine, with smooth lines and an air freshener?
Do you feel like your car expresses YOU well?
That may not be such a good thing.
According to recent studies, the more you identify with your car, the more likely you are aggressively drive it. “…individuals may view cars and the road space they occupy as their territory and will seek to maintain control over it and defend it as necessary." explained the study authors.
In addition to this, the study exposed a few more characteristics shared by aggressive drivers. Road ragers:
- Are More Likely to Break the Law.
- Have Compulsive Tendencies
- Are More Possessive and Materialistic.
- Are More Likely to Be Young Than Old.
- Are More Likely to Be Men than Women.
