Car drivers attitudes, status and personality

Post by Si_Walker » 26 Feb 2020 10:38

There is a Finnish research study report in the press today (26th Feb; The Times in the UK, amongst others) reporting a relationship between owners of high value cars and their attitudes to driving.

If you are interested in the published paper it can be found here and makes interesting reading from which you might draw some of your own conclusions.

"Self-centred men who are argumentative, stubborn, disagreeable and unempathetic are much more likely to own a high-status car such as an Audi, BMW or Mercedes."

Well, blow me down with a feather.

Thanks for sharing, Si.
