What the Color of Your Car Says About Your Personality

Since we see ourselves as amateur psychologists, we’re always looking for ways to better understand each other! A recent survey found that your choice of car color actually leads people to make assumptions about your personality:

  • Black: The good news is that people are more likely to see you as intelligent and charming. The bad news is you may also be seen as selfish.
  • White/Silver: If you drive a white or silver car, you’re seen as more trustworthy! Although, this may be an error, since Wally drives a silver car.
  • Red: People assume that those who drive red cars are happy and adventurous…but also angry.
  • Blue: Blue car drivers seem more loyal, kind, and considerate.
  • Tan/Brown: If you drive a tan or brown car, bad news: most assume that these drivers are grumpy, mean, and boring.
  • Gold: Driving a gold car makes you seem greedy and wealthy.

What color is your car? Was the description accurate? Let us know in the comments below!

We own both white and silver vehicles. For us it means we live on a dirt road and don’t want to wash them all the time.

I currently own a black car, yes the description fits 🙂 But I wanted my next car to be a brown or beige one since I live in the desert and it wouldn’t show the dirt as bad. After hearing your description though I was having second thoughts, then I found a better one here: http://www.today.com/home/blue-red-or-silver-find-out-what-your-car-color-t81381 it describes Brown as powerful and unique and beige as down to earth (fits me too). So I feel much better about changing car colors now 🙂

I’ve own a black car and a white car. So when I got my last minivan and they asked about color my answer was “anything but black, white, or red.” Red and minivans just don’t mix in my opinion. I ended up with silver cause that’s the color they had with the options I wanted. I honestly wouldn’t have cared if I’d was a different color either but personally like the silver because you can’t tell as much when it’s dirty.

Yay mine is Blue....

This accurate cause I’m all that haha 🙂

I bought a red SUV when I was mad at my husband. i bought the stick shift version because it was cheaper but then I couldn’t drive it. Needed my husbands help to learn how – Gods mysterious ways! Loved that car!

What about Orange, no description for that color.

The link to the Today show list (in the comments above) says orange shows creative, artistic, individual. That list is a little more extensive including orange, yellow and green.

How about Orange? That’s my Jeep’s color.

Mine is black and a USED Platinum model. I was totally selfish. I bought her (yep, she’s a girl) because she was beautiful and had all the comfort features I love. 😉 But, the headrest DVD players for my kids, that sold me.

What if the color of your car is gray/ I didn’t see that one listed.

Rick

What if the color of your car is gray? I didn’t see that one included in your discussion.

Rhonda Dickinson

My car is gray but I wanted purple, which was not available!

Megan

Nothing about yellow cars

Train

My car is white, but I only have that color because it was the car that was the right price and lowest mileage. Plus, it doesn’t show when it’s dirty as much. I don’t think your car color can determine your personality because it’s a big purchase and there are other variables involved, do I wouldn’t take it too seriously. Just my opinion. ????

My car is orange, what does that mean?

Marjorie
Guest

Blue van but the meaning is car #1 died and blue was the only affordable used van ( needed van or SUV for work) in my area. So blue = $ here. LOL.

Marge

Silver…because it’s pretty and most of all, doesn’t show dirt as much as other colors.
