Car Personality Reading – Understanding a Person by …


In my work as a teacher and professional reader I often meet people who ask me how they can find out more about their friends, lovers, co-workers, etc… One of the simplest and most effective systems that I like to suggest to people is “car reading”.

Unlike many of the other personality reading systems that I typically use with my students and clients (palms, tarot, chaldean star, runes, graphology), car reading is quick, easy-to-learn, and can be a lot of fun to do. And although you may not always be able to judge a book by its cover, I have found that you can tell a lot about a person by the car they drive.

What you will need:

In order to do a successful car reading, you will obviously need access to the person’s car. Please note that a picture or a description of the car is not the same thing. You will need the actual physical car in front of you. I will explain why in a moment.

On the other hand, you do not necessarily need to have the person you are reading to be there or even know that you are doing a personality reading on them. Of course it can be helpful (and more fun!) to have him or her there in order to gauge their reactions and confirm your findings, but if you’re attempting to gather information covertly on this potential mate, you might be better off without them standing there. Just make sure you have the right car!

If you can, find out if the person you are doing the reading for originally purchased the car. What this means is that if you are trying to do a reading for Joe Smith and he is driving a rental car because his car is in the shop, you probably won’t learn nearly as much about him as you would if he was driving his own car. This also applies to hand-me-down cars that many college students or people in their twenties often drive. Although you will still be able to get valuable information based on the interior of the car, the exterior (make, model, appearance, etc…) will likely tell you very little because they usually had little or no choice in its selection.

How to Read a Car:

The cars we choose to buy say a lot about the person we would like to be. This may not be the person we currently are, but it represents our goals and an idealized version of ourselves. This is just one of the types of subconscious choices we make all the time. These preferences can teach us a great deal about ourselves and the ones we love, and is a subject that I examine in-depth in my Mind Doodles course.

The first thing we would typically look at when doing a car reading is the exterior of the vehicle. Specifically we are looking for what kind of car it is, how old it is, what color it is, and what condition it is in.

It is said that the type of car we choose represents the image we are hoping to show the world. It is our exterior “shell” so to speak that not only protects our soft and vulnerable interior, but it presents us as we would like to be seen by others.

Ask yourself, what kind of car am I looking at and what kind of message does it seem to be sending? I don’t mean this in a mystical way, but in an advertising message kind of way. Is the car a “look at me” sports car, a “see what I’ve achieved” luxury car, a “my life is my family” minivan, an “I’m in control” SUV, a “conservative and cautious” Volvo, a “no-nonsense” pick-up truck, an “adventurous” Jeep, or perhaps a “I’m a good person” hybrid?

What is this person (through the carefully constructed message advertisers of these cars have created) trying to tell you about themselves or who they would like you to see them as?

For example, I have generally found that the “faster” a person’s car appears to be (i.e. sports car) the faster the relationship with this person will usually progress and ultimately end. The reason for this, as I discuss in my doodle interpretation course, is that a car (or any vehicle) is a subconscious symbol for movement and the need for potential escape from a current situation. Therefore, the “faster” a vehicle appears to be, the more urgent this person’s need is for continual movement and change.

Secondly, look at the color of the car. Does this color match the message that you received in step one? Car manufacturers usually do a fairly good job matching the available color selection to the type of car and the brand’s overall message. This is why sports cars come primarily in red, black, and yellow; and minivans generally come in blue, silver, or beige.

It should come as no surprise that people who buy cars that are red or yellow are generally competitive extroverts and subconsciously want to be noticed by others. On the other hand, people who buy silver, white, or beige cars would often rather avoid confrontation and blend in with the crowd. People who own black cars generally value their privacy and they often like to create an air of mystery about themselves. Those who drive blue and green cars are usually found to be far more laid-back and easy going than those who drive aggressively colored cars such as red, yellow, or black. What this means is that if you are going to cut someone off in traffic, you may want to look first to make sure they’re not driving that red Hummer with a gun rack in the back.

The inside of the car, on the other hand, is said to represent our “internal nature” or who we really are beneath this superficial exterior that we are projecting to the world. In other words, we have this tough hard shell that we show the world—and then we have this soft interior “cocoon” where we actually live and exist day-to-day. This represents our internal state of mind.

Glancing inside a car can tell us a lot about the person who drives it. Is the interior of the car loaded with newspapers, fast food bags, and clutter everywhere? This is generally thought to be representative of the person’s current state of mind. Perhaps they are feeling extremely disorganized or that some aspect of their life is spiraling out of their control. Oftentimes these individuals have told me that they feel as if they are being pulled in too many directions at once and cannot effectively focus their energy.

On the other hand, an overly neat and clean interior could suggest that this is the type of person who has a strong subconscious need to always stay in control of themselves and others. More often than not, these cars belong to perfectionists who are compelled to do things in a certain way and they insist that everyone else follow their lead.

The key here is to spot the extremes. After all, nearly everyone’s car has a coffee cup or two and a CD case lying on the seat so this alone won’t tell you much (other than they like coffee/tea and a certain type of music). Generally speaking, it is when something is carried to the extreme that it becomes the most interesting and telling.

Now take a moment and look at the passenger seat. Can you actually see the seat or does it look like it hasn’t been occupied in quite some time. This alone can tell you a great deal about this person’s social life. People who frequently date or go out often with other people, generally have passengers, which means that they would need a clean place to sit. I realize that passenger seats tend to fill up quickly with clutter, but I have seen some cars where it appears that no one has ridden shotgun in a very long time.

If you get the chance to actually sit inside the car, look around for any “accessories” that personalize the car and could potentially tell you something about the person who drives it. This could be as simple as noticing the type of music the person likes, the amount of electronic gadgets they own, any stuffed animals or knick-knacks sitting around, and of course any bumper or window stickers that proclaim their affiliations and/or beliefs. Generally speaking, look for anything that has been added to the car by the owner since it drove off the dealer’s lot. Each one of these items has the ability to tell you at least a little something about the person who owns the car.

Finally if you’ve read this far, you deserve to hear about the one “special” item that I like to use to pull the entire personality reading together. This special item is the registration sticker that is generally found on the rear license plate of the car. Although, this is not found everywhere, many states here in the U.S. have the owner’s month of birth printed on this tiny sticker. What this essentially does is to give you the person’s astrological sign (or at least narrows it down to two). If you are at all familiar with the personality traits of the various zodiac signs, you can then add this information to whatever you have already discovered about this person. Just don’t tell them how you got this information.

How do you know which of the two zodiac signs they are?

Well you don’t exactly, however, if you are familiar enough with the various sun signs, you can simply combine a few of the personality traits from each of these two signs together. If you really want to blow them away, at the very end of your reading, you can simply play the odds and ask them if they are the first of the two zodiac signs since that will cover the first twenty or so days of that particular month.

But what if I guess wrong?

Well first of all, you have to see if from their perspective. They have no idea that you pulled their birth month off their license plate minutes or even hours earlier. In their eyes you just randomly guessed one out of the twelve zodiac signs. Not to mention the fact that the moment they say, “No, I’m not a _______”, you will then know exactly what astrological birth sign they really are (i.e. the other one that month) so you can simply say something like: “I didn’t think so, you look more like a _________ to me”. Trust me, this simple revelation will not only make their jaws hit the floor but you have just become a much more interesting person in their mind. The rest is up to you.
