Does your car reflect your personality? It certainly does, especially with men. Men often buy cars just for the sense of identity a certain car gives them. Sometimes they do it consciously, as when they buy a Porsche to be flashy, gain attention and, for some men, they try to seem younger and trendier to women.

Sometimes the type of car a man buys is done unconsciously, such as when he is attracted to a particular type of car without knowing why. The reason is usually because that car reflects something within the man’s personality and his desire to buy it is his way of responding to that reflection.

Whether purchased with a purposeful eye to make a statement or purchased without a conscious knowledge of why, the type of car a man drives does say a lot about his personality. So what does your car say about who you are?

There are certain types of men who just seem to “go” with certain types of cars. These may be stereotypical associations, but they are true, nonetheless. At a glance, the car you drive can help someone tell your probable interests, personal tastes, personality, and even career! For the types of men who would buy said Porsche for its sleek looks, is it likely that they would know how to fix the car? Never mind change a tire, or any other Porsche parts when something goes wrong.

When a car salesperson tells you a car is “really you,” he or she usually means it.

Here is a quick summary of different types of cars and what they say about the men who own them. Can you spot yourself anywhere on this list? If you can and the association surprises you, then you may have yet to uncover some of your personality traits. Your car is trying to help you better know yourself!

Luxury Cars

Typically, men who make a lot of money and want to enjoy it own luxury cars. The men who buy these cars don’t care about gas mileage or practicality. They just want all the luxury upgrades their money can buy to make driving the car a relaxing, and even decadent, experience.


Mid-Sized Cars

Men who drive mid-sized cars usually have young children. These cars are used to transport the kids, go grocery shopping and take family trips. These cars are usually highly rated for safety and are not flashy in appearance at all. Women and single fathers are the most common buyers of mid-sized cars.


Hatchbacks

Hatchbacks are usually very small cars. Don’t worry if you have a small car. The myth of a man’s car being an extension of his penis is not true; however, having a small car does say some other things about you. Driving a small car means you’re conscious of the environment and want to help improve it, you don’t care about the impression that your car gives off to others, and your goal in a vehicle is for it to be as practical and economical as possible.


Sports Cars

Do you have a sports car? You might simply be trying to gain attention. That’s usually the reason most men have for buying sports cars. Men who drive sports cars care more about having a flashy, good-looking car, than a car that runs well or is good to the environment. They don’t need it to carry a lot of people, since it will usually just be them driving it on their own, or with one other person. Financially successful young men, or men going through the typical mid-life crisis (sometimes married but more often divorced), are the most frequent buyers of sports cars.

Consider what type of car you have and how well you think it reflects your personality based on this guide. Remember, even if you don’t think your personality is reflected by the car you drive, other people do. The car you’re driving now is sending a clear message about you to the world. Make sure it’s the message you want people to receive.

Also remember, whether you purchase your car with intentions of making a statement or justly because you found yourself drawn to the vehicle, the type of car a man drives says a lot about his personality. So what does your car say about who you are?
