    At what sport?

    Being good at something is mostly a result of practice. A tendency to practice at certain things and a liking for certain types of competitive environments could generally be associated with type I suppose. But, it is pretty loose kind of association and doesn't really point to talent at sport.

    I had a really good ENFP friend in wrestling during high school. No one on the team could touch the passion he had for the sport. That's gotta count for something.

    I also think Aryton Senna maybe was an ENFP, and he was also very passionate. Possibly an ENTP.
    I have an inner monologue that sounds strikingly similar to something off Animal Planet.

    Ayrton is one of my favorite athletes ever...

    I guess that's an indirect cause towards sports. I know I would spend hours, right after school, just shooting hoops by myself. And if my mom called me in, I'd push it until it was dark and she'd get mad. That might be a common SP thing. And the more it happens, the better those kids get.

    I wouldn't doubt a Ne type could be a great athlete though, but I wonder what sparks it. I kind of suspect Tony Hawk is ENTP, and he just applied his thoughts to something like skateboarding (and the industry surrounding it).

    To tell the truth, if you look at the best athletes, you won't really see much difference in how good they are based on the T and F. It seems to me that the best athletes are Se users.

    Interesting. I wonder about which things you can correlate with type and which you can't. Obviously the way the question is phrased elicits a value judgment, which is not the underlying question. People apply typology to career choice, hobbies, relationship behaviors, etc., but where do you stop? What couldn't you apply it to, and why? Could you potentially apply it to everything in some small way? I agree with the Se bit. I should make a thread about typology application to see what people think.

    There have already been threads about this. Also, on a random note, I thought TJ's make the best office administrators.
