What Does Your Car Reveal About You?
What Does Your Car Reveal About You
When people go out in search of a new car, they usually want to be sure to purchase a vehicle that reflects who they are as individuals, in some way or another. Many people don’t just go out and purchase the first new or used car they see on the lot just because it runs well and it’s a good deal that they can afford. Rather, they really think about how a car looks, how it feels to them, and what kind of information that car will reveal to outsiders. For example, a luxury vehicle may make others think you have a lot of money, even if you don’t really have as much as they imagine. Or a truck may make people think about you as the rugged type who likes to do construction projects on his own around the house.
Every car has something to say about you, whether or not you realise it. To find out what different cars have to say about their owners, read on.
If you own anything along the lines of a Toyota Corolla, people will not really think anything too far out of the ordinary about you. They will probably just assume that you purchase vehicles that get you to wherever it is that you need to go, and that you are looking for a reasonably priced, reliable car that you can get around in without drawing too much attention to yourself.
If you are purchasing the biggest SUVs on the market, such as the Hummer or any other oversized pickup truck, people may see you as someone who is trying to overcompensate for something that you lack, such as power, strength, or control. No one really needs these big trucks while navigating the busy streets of a city or even a suburban highway, so when you are seen with these vehicles, most people just think you are taking up space and you’re also polluting the environment with a fuel guzzler.
If you are seen driving a minivan, people will know that you have a family to take care of and you need the room in this vehicle to haul everything from sports equipment to groceries, as well as your children and their friends. Minivans are practical vehicles whose owners care less about image and more about being able to get around and get everything done with enough space to spare on the inside of the car. Small cars simply won’t cut it when you have three growing children and you like taking family road trips.
The more expensive your sports car, the more people may wonder how much you love showing off. Sure, you might have a lot of money to afford such a vehicle, but people may also wonder if you have hit a mid-life crisis and are simply trying to compensate for your lost youth. So if you buy a sports car, consider your age and what people will have to say about you and your career situation.
