What can you tell about a person by the way they drive?|
A guy who pulled up next to me at a traffic light stopped in the middle of the crosswalk. That told me he had no respect for rules. Then we came to a part of the road where the left lane was closed for repair, and he sped to get past and ahead of me, though I was already driving slightly over the speed limit, and there were no other cars with us on that stretch of road. That told me he had some dire need to be ahead of other people. Then, further down the road, he tailgated a car in front of him. That told me he was pushy, and perhaps controlling.
Now what about when you’re in someone’s passenger seat and they’re driving in a manner which they know makes you uncomfortable? Say, they tailgate, and they slam on the brakes a lot, even though you’re obviously not liking it? Can you think of other situations in which you can assume personality traits by the way someone drives?
