What your car colour says about you!

This is what automotive experts say about the color of car you own.

Mine is black and I had a dark purple one before this one!

http://carsguide.news.com.au/news/st...E21822,00.html

It makes interesting reading.

Black is elegant and dramatic, protective. People who choose black are independent and strong-willed and have the strength of their own convictions.

Beige and Golden Beige indicates the person is reliable, quietly versatile, down to earth and depend- able. Comfort and security are important to them.

White indicates uncluttered, neutral, pure. It can be seen as the "workers" colour because many service vehicles are white. It is also seen as safe and has a high resale value because of the safety and neutral nature.

Yellow is all about stimulation and energy, confidence, fun and imagination. It's highly visible so it's safe but it has novelty value. Yellow demands attention and adds a little sunshine.

Purple people are spiritual and creative, intuitive and introspective. Purple is the colour of royalty and indulgence. The lighter purples - lilac, mauve and violet indicate intuitive and creative with a little less experience.

Orange indicates accessible and informal, a sense of community or a sense of belonging - and taking risks with others.

Red is dynamic and passionate and is the colour of desire and physical activity. Red people are courageous and ambitious, goal oriented and often impulsive.

Grey is a neutral colour which in its mid-range has little effect on people whereas other greys will provoke a positive or negative response. If it's a silver grey or a darker charcoal it will seem more dignified and exclusive Grey people are unobtrusive, dignified and co-operative.

Blue says lots about stability, trustworthiness, harmony and calm. Deep blue equals intellectualism, wisdom and quiet confidence while an ice blue indicates mysterious and analytical but still sincere.

Green is about stability and the deeper the shade, the more the owner values stability and likes to present that image. It is also the colour of health and harmony, of someone who enjoys peace and security. An acid green is flirty and alert, rejuvenating and youthful.

Silver and Gold. Silver says honourable, trust- worthy with strong self esteem and self respect. It's a touch of luxury. Gold is a little more flashy but speaks of someone with high ideals who has made it and who enjoys material security.
