What’s YOUR Driving Personality?News entry
dated 07th Dec 2016
What kind of driver do you think you are? Are you placid and relaxed, or does a red mist rapidly descend when somebody cuts you up or does something else on the road to wind you up? Are you a speed demon, or is always sticking to the limits your hard and fast rule?
A team of leading psychologists has been looking into driving behaviour. They’ve determined that there are six key types of driving “personality” on today’s roads. In recognition of this finding, we’ve created a simple and entertaining quiz, where you can quickly answer five simple questions to determine your own, personal driving personality.
You can access the quiz via this link. It only takes a minute to complete, and you’ll soon know what kind of driver you are, and be able to compare with your friends (you’ll find sharing options at the end).
Of course, it’s key to answer the questions honestly! If instead you choose the answers you think sound more “right,” you won’t get a realistic assessment of your driving personality.
Please feel free to let us know in the comments what kind of driver the quiz considers you to be, and whether you think it’s correct or not. The “Road Racer” verdict above was delivered to one of our team who completed the quiz honestly. We’ll spare their shame and not mention any names, but this does serve to highlight that some driving personalities are actually dangerous to the individuals possessing them, and other road users.
As such, if you do find you have one of the more aggressive driving personalities, you should think about the implications. While the quiz is, of course, intended as a fun diversion, it could highlight to some the need to calm down a little behind the wheel.
