Our perceptions provide structure to our thinking-patterns which further devise our actions. Driving a car involves set of skills e.g. focus, decision-making, awareness etc. It will be interesting to discuss; how our ways of driving our cars; indicate our personality traits.
Taking into consideration all the vehicles internal auto system-functionality; we end believing the similar way of operating them. However, every driver has its own driving-behavior despite of the fact that all vehicles are almost same in terms of their internal and external automotive system. For example, two drivers who are driving the same vehicle on the highway may perform differently with respect to speed, changing lanes, talking, adjusting mirrors etc.
Driving in the rightmost lane indicates that the driver has a marginal skill who has more like a protective behavior and lesser competitive intensities.
The levels of speed also show interesting facts e.g. sometimes the car which is going fast but following all the legal car-driving practices but because one has different moral and response towards norms; one might perceive negative about the other driver due fastest speed level. In addition to this, it’s also not necessary that the concentration level increases with speed level. In daily life settings, you may have a fantastic beginning but become victim of procrastination later on. Similarly, speeding up the car more than the normal levels may not necessarily articulate the focus and concentration.
The driving is also influenced by the status of the other driver’s car. For example, a driver who gives great respect to the country’s military and see the official vehicle coming his way; he will probably choose different track leaving a lot of space for them. The same indicates unreasonable fear and extra-sensitivity.
In another instance, the financial worth of a certain car-model also translate into variety of different behaviors. If a driver of a low-priced car see high-priced car coming his way and chooses to change his lane leaving space then this would indicate obvious dominance of status on his behavior. Otherwise, if he had worse experiences before with high status car users; he might show some reluctance in giving way and this will show a clear impact on his way of driving.
There is also a realistic element of impression-driving exists in every driver. For example, sometimes to create a desirable impression; you drive slow or fast or at a medium speed. Further, wearing black sun-glasses is taken as extreme elegance and sharpness.
Similarly, used and new car drivers have different set of behaviors while driving. If a used car delivers the same level of comfort as a new one; then the driver would feel the same amount of satisfaction.
