A research team led by Prof. Jan Erik Lönnqvist, a sociologist at the Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Helsinki in Finland, embarked on this study because he worked on the science fiction drama `` X-File '' and the movie `` Earth to Echo '' The question that a well-known writer, Benjamin Van Allen, tweeted on Twitter was the trigger. In 2018, Allen tweeted on Twitter, 'Whether a bad guy rides a Mercedes, or a Mercedes-Benz gets a bad guy,' and lamented the driving morals of the Benz owner.

`` Especially, those who ride 'High-speed German cars' such as Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz seem to be more likely to drive too fast and recklessly without giving way to pedestrians, '' Lönnqvist said I am.

Lönnqvist and colleagues conducted a psychological survey of Finns in cars to see if it is true that driving in 'fast German cars' is a rough thing. The survey included 2,422 Finns who were recruited by the Finnish market research firm Taloustutkimus Oy . According to the preliminary survey, 1892 people excluding 530 people, including those who did not have a car in the first place, those who were too minor in the car type, those who refused to report income, `` openness, honesty, extroversion, A personality test was conducted to examine five factors (big five) of personality traits consisting of 'coordination and neuroticism.'

Also, the vertical axis shows the status of the car, the horizontal axis shows the cooperativeness, and looking at the left half of the graph, it can be seen that men with a negative cooperativeness value tend to have a higher car status. You. Women, on the other hand, did not see this trend.

These people often assumed themselves to be excellent and flaunted. It's an insatiable type of thing that can also explain the desire to ride a high-performance car, and the same reason that luxury cars break traffic regulations more often than others. '' And commented.

On the other hand, Lönnqvist and colleagues have found that groups opposite to their antisocial personality traits also prefer luxury cars. It is 'man and woman with high integrity.' According to Lönnqvist about this result, 'This is probably related to the height associated with the luxury car. There is a corresponding image in the type of car, and by driving a reliable car, they themselves He also sends a message that he is a trustworthy person. 'He pointed out that just because you are in a luxury car does not mean you have a bad character.
