    Default Athletes

    I know it's hard to determine the mbti of phrases like "oh you know we just gotta take it one day at a time, nawmean?" or "yee yee we gotta just give 110 percent, get in dere and execute," but there are some athletes who make their presence felt a bit more than that in interviews or off-field antics. i'm talkin about like

    terrell owens - ESTP?

    chad ocho cinco - def ESTP

    shaq - INTP?

    uh who are some other dynamic sports stars. allen iverson? steve young? i think that guys INTJ. uhhhh fuckin, charles barkley, ENTJ? iono, disagree with me or come up with more people.

    T.O - ESTP
    McNabb - ESFJ
    Shaq - ESTJ/P
    A.I - ISTP
    Charles Barkley - ESTP
    Steve Young - ISFJ
    Barry Saunders - INFJ

    I think most athletes are Sensors.

    For some reason, I always felt Tim Duncon was an INFP.

    I have to think of some more.

    I think so... I'm going to break it down for Kobe Bryant.

    I - He's definitely introverted, Kobe's not a people person for sure. He is more of a family guy, and he doesn't get along with everyone.

    N - Although his coach Phil Jackson preaches "carpe diem", or seizing the moment (present). But Kobe is a hard worker, and he works towards eventual goals.

    F - This one was the toughest category, but I think he's a feeler, because although he may not show raw emotion, he displays it sometimes in games and what not. Now that I think about it actually, this could go either way because T's accept conflict as normal and they also work towards accomplishment (both of which describe Kobe).

    J - As mentioned before, Bryant works towards future goals, he is definitely a planner. He is one of the most hard-working athletes in the world. Also, P's like to mix work and play together, and Kobe on the court just doesn't do that. I've rarely seen him smile when on the court.

    Hence, he's either INFJ or INTJ.

    ....
    I can see I, F, and J, but N I don't see. He seems very much like a Sensor to me. Js work towards goals too. Especially SJs.

    I can't see him as an intuitive.

    Hm... maybe you two are right, that he's an S rather than an N. He's more firm and direct rather than too empathetic, which would mean he's a T rather than F, eventually making him an ISTJ.

    @KDude says Kobe Bryant might be ISFP with well developed Te in this thread:
    http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...6155&p=1903160

    He is probably a Te user, leaving the potential types for Kobe as IxFP or IxTJ, and no he is not extraverted. I personally think Kobe is 3w4 INTJ, but this typing is highly questionable. Kobe is too tough to type!
    Then again Kobe does have a lot of ISTP tendencies, since he is the steriotypical athlete or jock and is quite action oriented and spontaneously in them moment, and like most ISTPs, off the court he relaxes.
