Men Who Drive Fancy Cars Are More Likely to Be Bad People

It's not the car, but the personality of the guy who buys the car

According to a new study in the Journal of International Psychology, men who drive “high-status luxury cars” are more likely to be bad people.


The researchers found that men who drove cars like Audis, BMWs, and Mercedes were more likely to be “self-centred, argumentative, stubborn, disagreeable, and empathetic.”

Why do those guys flock to those cars?  “These personality traits explain the desire to own high-status products.”


The researchers didn’t find any connection between women with those negative personality traits and fancy cars; it only seems to apply to men.
