    You might be on to something. I believe there's a significant prevalence of Fi&Te users among swimmers.

    Feelings exist yes, but they're used for advancing the ruthless justice of thinking - the better athletes are thinkers.

    The ISFP guy I'm seeing used to swim in high school, but he wasn't all that enthusiastic about it. He also has a black belt in Tae Kwan Do. The other ISFP I know used to play soccer, I believe. I'm not sure about that. Now he's kind of lazy. The ISTP I know is kind of lazy as well. It's possible he's mistyped, but I doubt it. He'd rather tinker around with gadgets and work on the house than be physically active.

    I don't know what I think the answer is, but I agree Fe probably has a connection to team sports.

    i should be shot dead with my own shit if i didn't confess that i have come across an overwhelming amount of stps (ESTPs>>>ISTPs) in areas of athletism and sports. as @Mane has mentioned above it probably has a lot to do with fe more so than ti. Fe as a supporting function to Se that is.

    then again i have also met wite a few intjs who are athletic though their Se is last. (not acrobatic but athletic.) it probably has a lot to do with strong Ni. the relationship between Ni and Se is like that between the hands-eye cordination. the better at picking up Se the stronger the Ni would be. in this instance Se being the eye and Ni being the hands.

I can't remember where it is but I'll see if I can hunt it up. I've read excerpts but I'd like to order it in and read the whole thing.
    This sounds interesting. Did you ever find it?

    I know @wolfy found some athletic profiles for the different types.
