    Hmmm, I want a vehicle big enough that I'll have to pick other smaller, weaker cars from the tread of my tires. Big enough for all my friends and family and still maintaining a cozy and intimate atmosphere.

    A jetliner with a military escort sounds perfect!

    Did I pave the way for greater absurdity by typing the Brady Bunch, I wonder?

    Motorcycles: SP
    Race/sports cars: SP
    SUVs: SJ and SP
    Skateboards: SP
    Bicycles: SP
    Family cars: SJ
    Station wagons: SP/SJ. A lot of “artisan” tradespeople used to drive them; carpenters, electricians, etc., using the extra space for their tools. But they sometimes doubled as SJ family cars as well.


    “Wussy” and “feminine” vehicles, including motor scooters: NF. I’m not the kind of guy who would ridicule another guy for driving one of those VW bug remakes, for instance, but there are definitely the “real man” types out there who consider guys who drive feminine vehicles to be “pussies” and “faggots”. They see another guy step out of one of those and they automatically want to beat the crap of him, you know?


    Futuristic movie/TV/cartoon/anime cars: mix of NT and SP. Of course, the marvelous plutonium-fueled, time-travelling Delorean. Also, Speed Racer’s Mach 5 and Racer X’s Shooting Star, and not the ones from that travesty of a movie they just made which I would not deign to type, but from the original vintage Speed Racer series. Knight Rider. James Bond vehicles. Air cars (why don’t we have those yet, anyway, what’s taking them so long??).
    "Space was big, and the boys from Earth were awed despite themselves by the things they found there: but worse, their science was in a mess. Every race they met on their way through the Core had a star drive based on a different theory. All those theories worked, even when they ruled out one another’s basic assumptions. You could travel between the stars, it began to seem, by assuming anything.”

    Haha. Funny stereotypical predictions.

    But here's reality:

    Me: INTP driving a 1998 Honda Civic 4 door, dark green
    Wife: enFP driving a 2007 Honda Odyssey minivan, white

    (I sometimes drive the minivan too, as I'm the main, and usually the only, driver on family trips.)

    Really I'd prefer an Accord over a Civic. I just got rid of my 1992 Accord when we purchased the minivan, and then I "inherited" my wife's Civic to drive to work (when I actually have to go in).

    A certain ENFJ friend did not think my car was very cool, but it is very logical, so I was amused at this T vs. F perspective. But, personality preference doesn't explain everything, as my manager is an EnFJ, and he drives a dark-colored (black) Honda Civic too.

    We chose these based on the cheapest cars which will carry all 5 of us plus some vacation/camping stuff which won't break down too often. We stick with the same manufacturer because I do almost all maintenance and repairs myself, and this makes it easier.

    If I were single and had unlimited money, I'd be driving something exotic and Italian really fast.

    If I were single and didn't have much money, I'd seriously consider driving a Formula 1 racecar for a few years. Hopefully I'd survive long enough to invest the money and live off of the investments the rest of my life.

    Edit: I should add that in college, I actually outfitted my car with a prototype of a simple electronic device which I designed and built. It was a rain sensor which would turn on the windshield wipers. It was fairly sophisticated with a few CMOS chips to handle the logic of various conditions to make it work better and more idiot-proof. It was integrated into the dashboard with a lighted rocker switch. I spent an entire 4-day midterm break building it and installing it. The actual sensor unit which detected the rain was not very durable, however, so it was a short-lived feature.

    Heh. My SJ brother couldn't bear to get a mini-van despite having a bigger family. He got an SUV, then gas went way up.

    I have a big family, too, and I love my mini-van. So does my INTP hubby. It doesn't get great mileage, but it doesn't do too horrible and it transports the six of us in relative comfort.

    We'd much rather have some discretionary cash for books than have a 'cool' vehicle. When we don't have so many people to tote, I can see us getting a couple of really small, efficient cars.

    I agree with the horse and carriages for INFPs, but I think the ultimate transport has got to be:

    The Delorean! Because, you know, a car that ran on plutonium in 1985 was a *great* idea.

    PM, I have just the car for you! A mining truck:



    Probably doesn't do so well on the gas mileage, and might not be cozy and intimate, but for picking on smaller, weaker cars?

    *CRUNCH*
