    Some, not all. I know some who may only use the nice stuff on special occasions. Some are crazy enough to not want to use it at all- to just keep it nice looking. But all of us are not like that.

    I'm with SS, and I have to check myself not to judge people with certain types of cars. It's a pretty prejudiced, but easy thing to do. Unless it's an actual hobby, it horrifies me to sink 25+ k into a mode of transportation just because you think it's rad, or it impressess people. I've resolved to never spend more than 10k on a car, and I admit.. my tastes run to ghetto flash. I spent a year driving to work in a 1964 Buick LeSabre 4 door with a matte rose colored (rust) paint job and bubble glass. It was fabulous, and $1200 dollars. My Honda, Lexus and shiny SUV driving coworkers were either very impressed or mostly confused.

    Cookie cutter beige snotty gated neighborhoods are filled with SJs and Beemers.

    Don't hate just because you aren't that particular BRAND of SJ.

    I'm telling you, my bff's ISTJ ex had a Porche and an SUV, and lived in Preston, which is like the Cary, North Carolina version of wanting to live in Brentwood or Beverly Hills.
    That's not tied to type, or exclusively to SJs. Any competive type would act the same way- If anything it's more of a Te thing, but that's only if your Pi lends to you to believe that keeping up with the Jonses is the way to go.

    That's why I said this was a TJ thing like...four posts ago.

    But, yeah, for shizzle those kinds of neighborhoods and such are populated strongly by SJs.

    Upper-middle class SJs.

    Working and lower-middle class SJs, on the other hand, tend to be more die-hard practical - sure. But not always even then. Depends on their influences.

    I don't like the flashy sports car thing either. I like men in trucks

    My INTJ ex was in construction and wanted to buy an Audi TT convertible. I believe my exact words were, "You may as well drive up to the job site in a pair of panties." He argued the merits of the car and went out and bought it anyway. His first day driving it he came home and said, "All the guys made fun of me!". Who saw that coming? He traded it in 6 months later for a Landcruiser. Wise choice.

    I want a sports car but my first car will probably be a Hiace or some other van/spacious car.
    I hate half ass sporty cars. Like a megane with a "sport" pack. its not sporty its poverty. FF cars in general is fail.
    4WD or RWD or you can ditch it.

    Thats because he doesnt know how to drive it...promise you give me an Audi TT at a consruction site and people wouldnt make fun of me. They may have to duck from flying rocks as the watch my tail lights after work.

    I settled for a truck with power. The looks on peoples faces as a truck is sliding around a turn is great, especially when they are right next to you turning and all they can see is the bottom part of your door.

    Actually, if there is a point to a thread like this divided along type lines, it's that it seems that choices made by different types won't (often) make direct sense in terms of other types' type preferences.

    So, sadly, and once again, this thread isn't really about NTJ Gundam Wings cars penises, same difference. It's about freakin ENFP choices! Always with the me-me-me and what it means about you-you-you. PFFFT!
