"How dreadful!" cried Lord Henry. "I can stand brute force, but brute reason is quite unbearable. There is something unfair about its use. It is hitting below the intellect." ~ Oscar Wilde - The picture of Dorian Gray
Yes, there is a pattern here: economical, reliable, good mileage, decent handling, small for city driving/parking but accommodates reasonable amount of people/things (hatchbacks are great for that, w/ reconfigurable interiors).
Love both your taste, and your rationale here. *tips hat to you*
'Cause you can't handle me...

68 PAGES????? I know I have great taste in automobiles although I'm not sure if this is an inferior Se thing but I have a habit of overdoing things aesthetically to the point of making things look bad.
I drive a pair of sneakers. Excellent grip and mileage on them.
I always thought the love of flashy sports cars were inferior Fi in the TJs and inferior Fe in the TPs who are copying the TJs.
The reasoning behind the NTJ thing goes beyond sports cars. The general "theory" is that inferior and tertiary Se have a superficial "scanning" of what Se is about, and if they end up expressing it for themselves, they'll only rely on that superficiality (some INJs might go the other route and dismiss Se, rather than express it.. but for the same reasons.. they've built up a superficial image of it that they want to remove themselves from. Both however have the same problem. They haven't really gotten to know what it's about, in it's more casual sense).
To put it another way, say if you were a public "pollster" or engaged in some kind of statistics gathering, but you only took into account the "loudest" samplings from a crowd. In the same way, NJs will notice the flashier and exciting elements they perceive of Se (from the ESPs especially). It's the "easiest" kind of Se to remember. Some might think that's expected of them in order to "be popular" or get by in the world. But they'll probably overcompensate. The cars flashier than what SPs own, the aggression and "toughness" of some ENJs is over the top. Some ENTJs try too hard to be warlike. They could act out all of this, but half of the time won't know the basics of "good sensing". Like having a physical sense of knowing when enough is enough, when to apply pressure, when to draw attention, etc.. They might be workaholics and not monitor their own bodies. These are all basic "sensing" things, but all they care about is looking like George Patton snorting coke in a gaudy Hip Hop video (if that makes sense). And driving a flashy sports car, of course. Bling, bling.
