Research suggests that people are more docile when confronted with luxury items. In one particular study, researchers driving either an expensive luxury car or a more affordable economy car stopped at a green light.
Drivers behind the economy car immediately began sounding their horns in annoyance with some going as far as rear-ending the poor researcher. However, when drivers found themselves stationed behind the luxury car patience was definitely a virtue. 50% of drivers in this case waited in silence until the car drove on, failing to sound their horn even once.
So what is the reason behind this compliance?
