The clothes you wear can reveal a lot about a person - as can the music you listen to, the TV shows you watch, even the pets you own.
But if you want real insight into a person’s character you should look no further than their car. Extensive research suggests the colour of someone’s wheels goes a long way to defining their personality. From black (power & control) and red (attention-seeking) to yellow (young at heart), colours have long been considered the easiest and most appropriate way to showcase one’s true self.
But why stop at colours?
In the UK most people take great pride in their cars as they are the most visible and obvious reflection of the kind of individuals they are. Psychologists will tell you that if you drive a convertible then people will assume you are energetic, active and outdoorsy.
The personality of the vehicle is just as important as the personality of the buyer. So when it comes to aesthetics, the colour of your car really is a window into your world.
When you buy a car you’re not just investing in a mode of transport, you’re unveiling an ego – either the one you already have that people see every day, or the one you don’t show – an alter-ego – one created to give you the sense of freedom and control you don’t have. It’s pure unadulterated escapism.
Sure you want a car that’s economical and safe and strong, a car that will see you from A to B and back again for the next few years, but your car is ultimately how the world sees you.
Studies suggest the modern British motorist will, during their lifetime, spend almost 30,000 hours behind the wheel of a car. Just reflect on that for a moment… that’s the equivalent of nearly four years of your life sat in the driver’s seat of a car!
Is it any wonder you want your vehicle to look and feel good; you need it to! This is why your car becomes an integral part of your life and your identity. Because you spend so much time in your car it is only natural that other people’s perceptions of you are shaped according to your wheels. Your car is a shiny, metal, plastic, rubber, glass version of you. And just as you feel compelled to decorate your house in order to impress your personality upon your neighbours, friends, family and visitors, so your car also needs to be a statement of intent on the real you.
When your car is seen by others, then you too are seen so how your car looks and how it is designed becomes, perhaps, the most important fashion accessory you’ll ever own. That’s why we really should be investing the time and energy into making sure our car represents us in the best way possible. When you customise your car you are, in the most unique of ways, revealing your identity.
