Not surprised but it’s interesting to see the numbers.
I took the test and only scored a 5 out of 36. I guess I need to sell my BMW
This study is flawed they surveyed 2000 people for 20 brands so 100 per brand meaning that a singular additional psychopath skews things really far.
Now, for the record I could see a possible connection between car brand and psychopathy, and from my experience bmw drivers drive like they own the road… quite psychopathic
… shocking precisely no-one.
Psychopathy is characterized by diagnostic features such as superficial charm, high intelligence, poor judgment and failure to learn from experience, pathological egocentricity and incapacity for love, lack of remorse or shame, impulsivity, grandiose sense of self-worth, pathological lying, manipulative behaviour
Diagnosing psychopathy from a 12 question survey of 2000 drivers. Perfect science!

I have felt it myself, driving my friends BMW. It’s like putting on the One Ring in Tolkien’s saga: it’s great while driving it, but it changes you. If used to much, you won’t be you anymore.
The amount of times where I’ve gone “wtf is wrong with this person” and noted that they’re driving a BMW is laughably common. Actually haven’t seen many psycho Audis outside of my boss, who also owns a BMW. You can probably find correlations between this study and the “most CEOs are sociopaths” study.
BMW = junk
You can take the vehicle out of the nazi regime but you can’t take the… you know what, that doesn’t even make sense nevermind
What’s the difference between a porcupine and a BMW? Porcupine’s pricks are on the outside.
There was a time when we associated that behavior with Cadillac drivers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=enqNl7tdLR4
