Can we judge the personality of a person based on the way he drives ??

Can we judge a person based on the decisions he takes while driving. I have observed several of my friends who drive and has seen that those who are rash and those who drive fast or take sharp turns in their work life take similar rough decisions therefore I started to analyze people based on their driving. Those who drive slow, apply brakes at distance were found to be slow while taking decisions made in real life. How good is this way of judging people :)

      Jul 12 2012: The best Social personality theories suggest a big portion of a personality can be understood by getting an ideal about where a person fits on the scale of: Openness to experience, Conscientiousness, Extraversion/Introversion, Agreeableness and Neutroticism. I think a lot of that becomes evident if you watch a person drive for several miles.
      While yo may not be clairvoyant after several miles you sure do have an ideal if this is a person you would like to sit next to at a social gathering.
