There are some people who care a lot about the color of their car when it comes time to purchase a new vehicle. Others will settle for just about any color availableÂ as long as itâ€™s the make and model theyâ€™re looking for with all the right features. You may think the color of your car matters only as a personal preference, but it can say a lot about who you are and how you drive.Â Your car color choices may not determine whether or not youâ€™ll get a date or a job, but if nothing else, itâ€™s fun to know what each car color means before you buy.
Here are some characteristics that might be attributed to you if you purchase certain car colors:
That status is important to you and you want to appear successful â€“ classic car colors are linked to status. Silver, modern white, beige and black are more subdued car colors that are meant to display prestige, especially when on a car thatâ€™s pricey yet practical. If you want to tell people youâ€™re successful or fake it, then choose one of these. Someone might see through your facade though when they pick you up for carpool to work and discover youâ€™re still living in mom and dadâ€™s basement. Your cover may also be blown if your classy car color happens to be on a vehicle circa 1990 thatâ€™s lucky to start.
That you think youâ€™re a big shot â€“red, yellow, bright green and electric blue car colors will tell people you think youâ€™re a hotshot and thatâ€™s not always seen as positive.Â People will automatically think youâ€™re that guy who drinks too much at a party and says something arrogant. It will also be assumed that you live life in the fast lane, so youâ€™ll always be on the radar of the cops if youâ€™re speeding.
Whether youâ€™re a rational or creative person â€“Â a car color can tell others whether youâ€™re a left-brained or right-brained thinker. It follows pretty logical rationale, really.Â If you choose a car color simply because you like it, youâ€™re telling people youâ€™re more â€œgo with the flowâ€. If you choose white because you think it wonâ€™t show the salt stains from the North-Western winters driving, youâ€™re right-brained and all about login and planning.
If youâ€™re shopping for a car, donâ€™t over-think your color choice But I know weâ€™ve got you thinking about it, and the next time a date doesnâ€™t end with breakfast or a job interviewer says â€œdonâ€™t call us, weâ€™ll call youâ€; youâ€™ll be wondering if your car color is to blame.
