SCIENCE HAS A NEW WAY TO TELL IF YOU’RE A JERK…

Scientists have determined that if you drive an expensive car, you’re probably a jerk.

 

Don’t kill the messenger, though…

 

It was pretty much unanimous!

So, what exactly do they mean?

 

“A new study has found that drivers of flashy vehicles are less likely to stop and allow pedestrians to cross the road — with the likelihood they’ll slow down decreasing by 3% for every extra $1,000 that their vehicle is worth.”

 

Why?

 

Because researches speculated that they “felt a sense of superiority over other road users” and were less able to empathize with lowly sidewalk-walkers.

 

And it looks like they could be racist and sexist, too.

 

“Vehicles stopped 31% of the time for both women and white participants, compared with 24% of the time for men and 25% of the time for black volunteers.”

 

A Finnish study last month found similar results.

 

It found that men who own flashy vehicles are more likely to be “argumentative, stubborn, disagreeable and unempathetic.”

 

Here’s the funny thing:

 

People with “conscientious” characters seek out pricey models, too.

 

What do you think? Does driving an expensive car make you a jerk?

 

Yes or No?
