Short for Meyer-Briggs Type Indicator, the MBTI® is a popular and useful way of categorizing individual personalities into 16 different groups, allowing people to get to know themselves and others better.
Apart from allowing you to understand the best way to develop successful relationships with different people, knowing your MBTI® can be quite useful in many other life decisions as well, such as buying a sports car. As you'll find, not all sports cars will fit every personality type. So, to find out which sports car best suits your particular personality, keep reading.
10 ISTJ - Honda Civic Type R
Characterized by a highly practical and logical outlook on life, ISTJs are one of the most commonly represented personalities. If your decisions are fact-driven, emotionless, and sometimes even insensitive, you likely belong in this group. As an ISTJ, you don't want to waste your time with anything you consider impractical.
Therefore, the perfect sports car for an ISTJ isn't a show-off piece or an overly-expensive supercar but a reliable four-door with one of the best price-to-performance ratios on the market. The new Honda Civic Type R has its handling and power delivery perfected, while still offering a decently spacious interior and rear boot for practical uses. Starting at roughly $35,000, this car boasts 306 horsepower and a 5-second 0-60 mph dash, all courtesy of an extremely efficient 2.0L four-cylinder engine.
9 ISFP - Mazda MX-5 Miata
If you consider yourself practical, learn best by doing, and are always aware of what's going on around you despite being reserved and quiet, you're definitely an ISFP. You are an artist, you like to create and inspire. You also don't like abstract ideas and theory, you like to go right to the business without beating around the bush.
The new MX-5 is the perfect sports car for you. Low maintenance, small, practical, extremely fun, and doesn't attract too much unwanted attention. More precisely, the 2019 MX-5, which is the most advanced and exciting model yet. Its popularity isn't only due to its extreme reliability, it's also because of its featherlight stature. With that in mind, the 181-hp engine inside will guarantee infinite amounts of fun and allow you to really express yourself on the road.
8 INTJ - BMW M5 Competition
That's why the new M5 Competition is the perfect choice for an INTJ. This luxury supersedan has it all: from a beefy 4.48L V8 churning out incredible 617 horsepower to a comfortable upscale interior adorned in leather. You like to have everything planned out ahead, and whether you're going on a business trip or a joy ride, the M5's versatility will keep a smile on your face.
7 ISTP - Subaru WRX STI
A fearless and confident risk-taker who thoroughly enjoys learning and creating can not be limited to a standard exotic sports car. ISTPs often enjoy extreme sports such as racing or skydiving, so what better car than the very pinnacle of rally driving, the STI, in its newest and most advanced form.
The 2019 model upgrades the old 2.5L four-cylinder engine to send 308 horsepower to all four wheels, launching to 60 in less than 5 seconds. Because the STI is also one of the most popular tuners to ever hail from Japan, it will give you the opportunity to constantly work on improving and upgrading your ride.
6 ISFJ - Porsche 911
Also known as "defenders," individuals who belong in this personality appreciate tradition and often dislike change. Although reserved, ISFJ personality types are extremely reliable and have a good eye for detail. That's why a Porsche 911 makes a perfect car for an ISFJ.
Like them, the 911 is a reliable high-status sports car that's not as flashy as its Italian counterparts, yet every bit as luxurious. The 911 has kept its traditional design for over half a century now and will likely continue to stick to its roots for a long time to come. In the newest form, it comes with a 370-hp six-cylinder engine that will glue you to your seat as it reaches 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds.
5 INFP - Wiesmann GT MF5
For an INFP, details and numbers are probably not too important. You're a loving, sensitive, and quiet individual with an inexhaustible amount of creativity. You love to express yourself and bring inspiration to others through your art or work. Some may even call you an idealist. Your decisions are more often based on your feelings and personal values than logic.
So, when it comes to buying a sports car, you ideally need something as unique as your personality, like the vintage-inspired Wiesmann MF5. This custom German coupe draws design cues from early 20th century models, combining them with a modern BMW 5.0L V10 engine producing 555 horsepower.
4 ENTJ - Mercedes-Benz GT R
This is why the obvious choice is the Mercedes-Benz GT R, a masterpiece of German engineering that unifies top-end luxury and performance.

2 ENFJ - Tesla Roadster
