Nothing screams personality louder than the color of you’re clothes, your nails, your hair, your bags, or even your shoes. The color of your car is no different. Personality is best expressed in things that people will see and colors – mixed, matched, muted, or whatnot – believe it or not, is one of the best ways to strike an impression.
So what does the color of your car say about you?
Color preferences in cars vary greatly from one person to another and several factors play a role. Someone outgoing may go for something flashy but things like jobs, family, and availability of colors play a role too. A person who is bent on getting a black car may opt to settle with gunmetal gray if the former is not available. Likewise, someone who goes on frequent long journeys to the province may go for a darker-colored car as opposed to a light-colored one because the possibility of passing through potholes and muddy terrains is inevitable and the maintenance of keeping a light-colored car clean is considerably significant.
A Bankrate article, in talking about what the color of a car says about its owner, says that white vehicles present a fresh, young, modern face to the outside world and that’s why some contemporary brands, such as Apple, go for such color. Sophisticated black is most associated with luxury while gleaming silver screams of innovation and class. Nondescript gray projects maturity and tradition while blue exudes stability. Red, as expected, is the head turner of the group, and more often than not, attracts the look-at-me type of people who oozes power and masculinity, confidence and fun.
As like every rule, there’s always an exception and there being no end to human quirkiness, a car’s color is no different. A car’s color may say something about it’s owner for one reason or another but when it comes right down to it, nothing beats knowing a person for who he truly is and not for the kind of car that he has or the color of the car that he drives. To each his own and that couldn’t be any truer than in choosing the color of one’s car.
