What Does Your Car Color Choice Say About Your Personality?


The colors of the things around us are said to influence our moods and highlight personal attributes. Every item we own is an extension of our personalities, but how much does that really say about us? Specifically, what do the colors of the items we own say about us? Perhaps we don’t think of it right away, but most of us want our cars to reflect who we are because we spend so much time driving in them. Take a look at what your car color choice might say about your personality.

White
White cars are the most popular on our roads today. At first glance, white cars portray a fresh, clean and modern look. This could reflect the driver’s own personal style, as they may also have a taste for elegance and enjoy the finer things in life. If you drive a white car, your personality probably includes honesty and purity, with a bit of confidence. Drivers of white cars tend to be more extroverted.

Black
The color black is often associated with power. That may be the reason why black is the most common color of luxury vehicles. If you drive a black car, you may be a bit of a sophisticate as well. You may enjoy things labeled as classic and timeless. As the driver of a black vehicle, you are not easily manipulated and are usually in total control of many areas of your life. Your personality may be a touch mysterious and a bit competitive.

Silver
Silver cars are the third most popular vehicle color on our roads. The color silver is linked to innovation. If you drive a silver car, you might enjoy having the newest technology available. Drivers of silver vehicles are most often self-assured, unfailing and calm. They are also very detail-oriented people. Silver cars can represent luxury, wealth and prestige - those who own and drive them often subconsciously exude these qualities.

Gray
Gray is a cool, sleek and practical color. As the driver of a gray car, you know who you are and probably prefer things on the subtle side. People who drive gray cars often don't want to stand out. The color gray accompanies wisdom and formality. If you drive a gray car people may describe you as refined, conservative and pragmatic. People who choose to drive gray cars are often reasonable, helpful and agreeable souls who like to go with the flow of life.

Red
If you want, or already drive, a red car you’re probably a go-getter looking for action. Red is a color that often represents confidence and fun. Similar to black cars, red cars can be associated with status. Drivers of red cars usually want attention and to look impressive to others. Red cars denote those who have high performance energy and drive, and who are full of courage and ambition. They can be impatient characters who live their lives at a fast pace. People who drive red cars are often enthusiastic about life and are passionate about their interests and themselves.

Blue
The color blue symbolizes stability and safety. If you drive a blue vehicle, people might describe you as dependable, trustworthy and at peace with who you are. Like the driver of a white car, you might also like to portray a fresh look in your own personal style. Those who drive blue cars are generally consistent in their moods and attitudes. They also prefer to blend in rather than stand out in the crowd.

Brown/Beige
Brown and beige are colors that are peaceful and earthy. The driver of a brown car values a long life of purchases and doesn't necessarily care about the newest trends or technologies available. Those who drive brown cars are usually known for being frugal and practical with their spending.

Yellow
You are probably a pretty happy person if you drive a yellow car! The color yellow represents joy and a positive attitude. Drivers of yellow cars are also more willing to take risks. Those who own and drive yellow cars have great self-confidence and enjoy having fun and embracing their inner-child.

Green
Green is nature’s color. If you’re driving a green car, you are probably very similar to the drivers of brown and blue cars. The color green symbolizes balance, stability and growth. Those who drive green cars are generally civilized, socially-conscious and well-adjusted people. If your car is dark green, you might like classic things and be more traditional. Those who drive lime and neon green cars on the roads tend to feel more young and hip.

Orange
Orange is a warm color that has the ability to stimulate and arouse the senses. It symbolizes self-expression, flamboyance and passion. Orange also encourages energy, activity and motivation. Drivers of orange cards tend to be more on the frugal side. They aren’t afraid of going against the tide and enjoy having things that are a little unusual.
