Daily Fun Quiz – “What Your Car Says About You?”

What Your Car Says About You

By Brie Cadman, DivineCaroline

Young men drive Camaros, soccer moms drive minivans, and rich snobs  drive Bentleys. We usually associate a certain type of car with a certain type  of person, but do we really know who’s behind the wheel? After all, our  perception of a car is largely based on how it was marketed—Volvos for safety,  Porsches for speed. But it can be tough to decipher whether people buy a car  because they think it will make them out to be something they are or may not be,  or because the same group of people always buy the same type of car. That’s  because psychographics—grouping customers according to beliefs and attitudes and  selling them products to fit their group—is at play.

So what does your car say about you? What is that SUV driver really supposed  to be like? Here’s a clue.

Small Car: Prius, Honda Civic, Smart Car According to a  study by researchers at UC Davis,  small car drivers are more  pro-environmental and prefer higher density neighborhoods than drivers of others  types of cars. This isn’t surprising; if you live in a big city, it’s simply  easier to park with a small car and if you’re concerned about the environment,  you’ll want something that’s more fuel-efficient. Small car drivers, unlike  other categories of drivers, don’t necessarily see their cars as a ticket to  freedom. They aren’t workaholics or status seekers who try to display wealth.  They want to lessen their impact on the earth and have a  reliable car—and find a parking spot.

Mid-Sized Car: Chevrolet Sedan The authors of the study  found that “mid-sized car drivers have no distinct travel attitude, personality,  lifestyle, mobility, or travel-liking characteristics.” Ouch! Does that mean  they’re totally boring? Maybe, or maybe just pragmatic, or maybe they got their  cars as a hand-me-down. The owners were more likely to be female and homemakers;  they also had higher incomes.

If you’re driving an American-made sedan, you might belong to the group  psychographers call “belongers.” That’s those who need to belong to a group, are  very nationalistic, and don’t like change. The stereotype of this person is  someone who lives in an average town in the Midwest. When not driving a sedan,  they may also be in a U.S.-made pickup or station wagon.

Luxury Cars: Cadillac, Lexus Those who drive luxury cars  are—no surprise—status seekers; they also are more apt to drive long distances.  Men and older or retired people are more likely to drive luxury cars. In  particular, luxury car drivers are over-represented among highly-educated and  higher-income people.

In psychographic lingo, the “achievers”—profit-oriented workaholics who like  being independent—are also likely to drive luxury cars and/or sports cars.

Sports Cars: BMW, Porsches Those who are adventure seekers (even if they never get out of the car) drive sports cars. They’re not calm and are more likely than average to have a college degree. Surprisingly, based on the cost of most sports cars, they were more likely to have lower incomes. Some of these may fall into the category of “emulator”—younger, financially unstable, low self-esteem people who buy flashy cars that aren’t true sports or luxury cars to try to emulate achievers.

Minivan/Van In the study, minivan drivers tended to be calm and weren’t loners. (Who would buy such a big car just for themselves?) They enjoyed traveling in their car; they were more likely to live in the suburbs, be females, homemakers, and aged forty-one to sixty-four, and surprise surprise, have children.

Pickup In the study, pickup drivers don’t like high-density living situations and are more likely to be dissatisfied with their lives. They tend to be workaholics, have lower education, be full-time employees, have service related jobs, and be middle-income.

SUV It’s not surprising that people who favored larger cars were less environmentally-minded. SUV drivers, in particular, also liked to travel short distances in their cars. They were more likely to be suburbanites, aged forty or younger. The drivers came from larger households that were more likely to have children.

Not only might the type of car you drive say something about you, so does the  color. According to a survey done in Great Britain, certain colors indicate  certain personalities. Here are some generalities:

  • Black: aggressive personality, rebel
  • Silver: cool, calm, may be a loner
  • Green: reactive
  • Yellow: idealistic
  • Blue: introspective, reflective, and cautious
  • Red: someone who is full of energy and pizzazz
  • White: status seekers, gregarious
  • Cream: contained and controlled

Whether we choose cars for how we want others to perceive us, or if we are  simply concerned with price and function, what we drive can send some serious  messages.

Learn Telepathy Exercise using Playing Cards

Learn Telepathy Exercise using Playing Cards

You will need a pack of playing cards,
a sheet of paper, and a pencil for score sheet

Be present in this moment
Center yourself
Feel yourself to be truly “here” and “now” present
Still your mind
Do not think of any other place. Do not think of the past or the future
Do not think of anything
( this is the hardest part of learn telepathy, to still the mind – meditation can be a good telepathy exercise in preparation for transmitting telepathic signals)

Choose one person to “send” and the other to “receive”.
Sit down back to back with another person , the receivers back faces the senders back

Sender shuffles the pack of cards and lifts up the top card looking at it
Sender then “tap’s the card” signaling the beginning of transmission
Sender then mentally ‘send’ the color red or black depending on the colour of the card to the mind of the other person
Receiver then tries to connect with senders mind to see if they can pick up what is being telepathically send

There are several ways of “sending”
imagine the word red or the word black when you close your eyes, or think of a red or black object, i.e. imagine a red fireengine, a red flower, a red carpet or a black Porsche, black soot, black dustbin Esc

3. The receiver then calls out the caller that he or she thinks the card is.

4. The sender places a tick (for a correct answer) or a cross (for a wrong one) on the score sheet


There are 52 cards in a playing card pack
According to the Law of chance a score of 26 correct answers is predicted
The receiver who scores consistently higher then the average 50150 score is undoubtedly making use of some kind of telepathic power.

When you have experimented with telepathic exercises with colors for a while you can start attempting to telepathically transmit different suits.
To Learn Telepathy takes time and patience.
