    Default Which Types Tend To Be The Most Aggressive Drivers?

    I'm thinking ESTJ and ISFP. That's just from experience. YMMV.

    I can confirm ISFP at least in attitude; my friend always has road rage. He says it makes him feel better. He's not too aggressive in actual driving though. My INFP friend kind of is. I haven't experienced any others.

    The scariest ride I've ever been on was with my ISFP wife. She took us up to 130 mph, and I was white-knuckling the entire time.

    I'll never forget riding with an ISTP for most of a summer. Tailgating, a foot away from the rear bumper, driving down a steep grade, with his foot resting on the gas pedal.

    I'm more of a passive-agressive driver, myself.

    My sister-in-law is the scariest person I've had to ride with because she tailgates like crazy and, because I'm family, I know she inherited the distance judging problem thing from her mom's side. My husband has it, too, but he's careful.

The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    They slow down to the speed limit or just below when you follow too closely.

    I see. So do they also speed up when you try to pass them? Do they slow down the fast lane on the freeway? After you pass them, do they speed up suddenly and start ramming their vehicle up your tailpipe? Do they pass you and then suddenly slow down to a crawl when there is no chance to pass them?

    Only if they are also an idiot and an asshole as well as passive-aggressive.

    I personally don't get stupid with people without warning. When someone is in a hurry behind me, I move a bit to the right so they can see what is going on ahead of us. I tap my breaks so they can see that it is bothering me and give them a chance to knock it off if they just weren't paying attention -- that can happen to anyone.

    But if they are trying to force me into driving at a speed I consider unsafe by riding my ass, it's not going to happen. And if they are assholes about it and I'm in a situation to do it, I will make them suffer. I don't drive slow. I drive as fast as I feel I safely can without getting pulled over. I often have kids in my vehicle and even if I don't, I plan on being around for the births of my great-grandkids. I'm not giving that up because some idiot thinks they have a right to dictate how I drive.
