BMW, Audi Drivers Are Most Likely To Be Psychopaths


Research conducted by the British website Scrap Car Comparison has concluded that BMW and Audi owners are more likely to be psychopaths than drivers of other brands.

The study asked 2,000 vehicle owners in the UK to complete a 12-question test that rated their psychopathic tendencies on a 36-point scale.

The scores, out of a 36-point scale indicates how likely it is that you’d show traits of psychopathy including superficial charm, grandiose sense of self-worth, and a lack of remorse or guilt.

The average score was 6.6, but BMW owners nearly doubled that with an average of 12.1. This is not as surprising as BMW drivers already have a negative reputation on the roads, with a quick Google search revealing that the term ‘Why are BMW drivers…’ is followed by results including ‘so arrogant’, ‘idiots’ and ‘so hated’.

Audi follows BMW at 11.7. No other brand scored higher than 7.0, but rounding up the top five are Fiat (7.0), Mazda (6.4), and Honda (6.3). Kia and Czech brand Skoda scored the lowest at 4.2 and 3.2 respectively.

Interestingly, the study also found that electric vehicle (EV) owners tended to show psychopathic tendencies more than their gasoline or plug-in hybrid counterparts. They scored 16.0, followed by Hybrid car drivers at 9.8.

Then, when it came to colors, yellow/gold had the highest psychopathic tendencies (12.7) followed by brown (12.2), and green (8.5).

Finally, cars fitted with personalized plates (13.8) were more psychopaths than those with standard license plates (5.3).
