I think mostly of the physics of driving, so when I project a scenario based on current speeds and directions, I can focus on that system and be fine, but sudden changes can throw me off. I also have to watch to not get stressed if there is a system that makes sense to me for how the cars to function (for example the zipper effect when heavy traffic is merging onto an interstate), and then the actual vehicles are behaving randomly, it's hard to know what to expect and I get rather anxious about that.
    This describes how I feel about driving quite well.

    I don't like it much either. Just hadn't stumbled across the thread yet.

    Mostly it's the constant need to pay attention to a ton of things at once and the constant concern that I'll space out and hit someone...or that someone else will space out and hit me. I have very little trust for other people in cars because I don't really trust myself.

    I think the only time I actually enjoy the act...is maybe in brief moments of driving at night when I suddenly notice the way the light is in the car and how the night feels. But I don't think that has so much to do with driving as much as it has to do with being in a car at night.

    Vehicles are quite like tools in my mind, they aren't really random at all. The only times they are random are during... rare occurrences that honestly require some bad luck (like a tire popping).

    My opinion is that vehicles aren't random.
    People are random.

If all the other cars were operating on computer chips in one coherent system, I think I might love driving once I could know the ins and outs of that system.
    I completely agree.

    I LOVE to drive. I've been obsessed with cars and driving since I was a little kid - told my dad on my 6th b-day that I only had 10 more years 'til I could get my license.

    As long as I'm not tired, I can drive all day and have a blast doing it. And 5 years in Southern California has gotten me used to traffic jams. I have satellite radio in my truck, so I'm happy just sitting there.

    I’ve had my share of driving jobs, and the worst was being a messenger. Anyone with a car and insurance can pretty much get hired on the spot. You’re on your own in your car all day doing pick ups and deliveries throughout the metro area, with no one to put up with. If that sounds too good to be true, it’s because it is.

    The dispatchers give you radio you have to leave turned on in your car and answer whenever they call. You’re stuck with these assholes yelling at you every 5 minutes, demanding to know where you are and why you’re taking too long. That’s their prodding stick, to always make you feel like you’re going too slow. “Wtf? You should have been there a half hour ago, what were you doing all that time, playing with yourself?” They never believe your excuses for any kind of delay, true or false. Then you’ve got all your car expenses, gas & repairs. Not to mention speeding and parking tickets, the latter because you end up in situations downtown in the city, where to make time you have to take chances and park in sections where even your messenger sign doesn’t give you immunity.

    Now if you were living in the future when we finally get the air cars we’ve been waiting forever for, then this would definitely be a cool job.

    I love riding in convertibles, and on motorcycles, and, if I trust the driver, I absolutely love, and prefer riding shotgun.

    Whenever I am driving in a car, I can't help but to daydream, (which is great), listen to loud music, (which is also great), and have borderline OCD thoughts about potentially getting into a fatal, or fatally wounding car crash, (which is not great).

    Whenever I get into a car, or on a motorcycle, I have to let myself go, and realize that if my time comes, it comes.

    But, boy oh boy would it be awful to hit someone, or some animal, or to get into a car crash and witness someone I love die, while managing to survive with a mangled face and one arm and a leg. :/

    I don't like driving, and I prefer others drive while I take a passenger seat. The number one reason I don't like driving is having to deal with so many other cars on the road. On a virtually empty road, I have no problem with it. The interaction with people, and their unexpected movements and decisions are what make it frustrating and sometimes a little closer to danger than I'd like.

    If Se is used for handling a lot of information at once, and responding quickly, then that one.

    Damn straight!

    I love driving. I'm pretty good at the whole spatial aspect of it, although it is easy for me to get lost if I don't know the neighborhood. The risk part is actually fun, and I probably tend to take more risks than I should. It's great to weave in and out of various obstacles to get exactly where you want to go, kind of like playing a video game.

    Makes sense that it would use a bit of Se and Ne. I do tend to tune out my surroundings sometimes and then come back with a start: Oops, this is a very heavy metal vehicle surrounded by heavy vehicles and best to pay attention instead of daydreaming.

    I'm not really astonished at anything other than your ability to put your car in the wrong gear for your current speed. The computer in an automatic transmission shifts gears more accurately than a human could ever hope to.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
