    My answer was SPs would gravitate towards it because of their personality. I remember reading and listening to lectures in my psychology class that people were basically born into their hobbies, activities, jobs etc that they enjoy. Being forced to train could go against their motives for sure.

Thing is, she was taken away from her home when was 2. Who the heck knows what her "type" is, if there really is such a thing. She went through brutal training regimens, and was already toned and muscular as a little 12 year old. She was forced into that level of discipline. Granted, she admitted being homesick and crying a lot, so maybe she wasn't inherently a natural fit, but her actions spoke something different.

    Yeah, that's sad what they do with those Chinese children. All so they might win a gold medal one day. It's just a freakin' game. It's hard to respect a country that treats their athletes like this. It's not like these kids chose that.

    Here's some photos of young chinese kids being trained. Some look like they are in great pain and don't want to be there.

    When I posted this thread, I wasn't thinking about chinese children being taken away from their homes at very young ages against their will. I'm thinking about people who voluntarily choose this path.

    I don't think discipline is anti-SP--I've met a lot of disciplined athletes who are clearly SPs. Every sport has levels and rankings, and you can't play against the best without disciplining yourself to train hard. They were usually the people who joked around before and after practice, and got pure joy out of performing well during practice.

    Plus SPs are usually more aware of physical appearances, and they treat their body like a piece of art. That means they're working out all the time.

    There are plenty stoner ISFPS with man tits, and plenty "crack in the butt" hanging from the pants, old fart plumber ISTPs.

    Rumors of jet pilot pornstar-ness is vastly overrated.

    So maybe SPs are more likely to embrace the extremes?
