At his MVP conference, he stressed his childhood and how he's thankful for his mother bringing him up by herself, etc. I could also get a sense of Fe because of him always involving the entire team in pre-game activities, and how he bought the entire team digital cameras for his MVP award ceremony.
    lebron seems too wise to be early 20s esfp. what about enfp? he doesn't say crazy things and seems really grounded, but he just has this presence in all his activities that suggests N to me. sees possibilities too well, his best friend is entj jay-z. he works angles, i keep saying he'll be president some day. he's as perfect as barack. SeTe for esfp is a great social strategizer, but he just seems to have a better sense for all his affairs. plus Se types are more on the surface, and bron bron seems too put together for that.

    eh, maybe esfp makes more sense. his thinking just seems so advanced. he is obviously extremely mature for his age, i just don't have any esfp examples that share any similarity to him.

And c'mon, who doesn't foresee the finals in the regular season. It's all people speculate about during the NBA season, who's going to be there in June.
    Kobe's an incredible team player, he's not selfish. The Lakers' play this year has proved that. He does what it takes to win, and he distributes the basketball really well on his team and finds the right guys. Additionally, he is very much a vocal leader on the Lakers, which is more IxTJ than IxTP. The fact that he's a loner has no relevance on whether he's J or P. In fact, his apparent low Fe would make him even more likely as ISTJ.

    Also, he makes it a point to separate work and family life - a J trait. Additionally, Kobe has a tremendous devotion to duty. Even when Kobe was in his first year/second year, he already had an incredible devotion to duty. When his teammates were partying and going to strip clubs, Kobe actually said "Why would I go to a strip club for? For what? I'm here to play basketball, man." That sounds more ISTJ to me than ISTP.

    ISTJ.

    You know, ENFP makes sense too, but I think the overall ESFP profile just fits LeBron better.

    i kinda think he's introverted. introverted thinking makes the most sense to me like istp or intp. he doesn't open up at all. he doesn't operate with a holsitic judgment so much as causal this leads to this. he could be Te but not AFTER Fi. you see energy with lebron and excitement but not shades of feeling, what esfp is like that? he does NOT seem to be really moody like an F.

    I'm gonna break it down so I can understand easier...

    P - we both agree on this, he has a laid-back and playful nature.

    E/I - In interviews and even not in interviews, he has a smiley face quite often. He is the leader of the pre-game rituals that he and his teammates do.

    N/S - Not very creative in his basketball skills and dunks.

    F/T - He likes to get everyone involved, not leave anyone out. Gave every one of his teammates a gift. Actually, he's very Fe sounding to me. Likes to be the center of attention, perhaps yet more Fe. In interviews, he seems like a genuine "nice guy".

    Maybe he's ESTP, possibly ESFJ.

    Let me explain a few more:

    Gilbert Arenas - INFP (not INFJ):
    He's introverted, I've seen in-depth interviews with him, and he's a self-proclaimed hermit. The Ne is very evident when you read his online blog, he always thinks of the possibilities and relationships between things, sometimes in scary ways. More Fi than Fe, I reckon. Has a lot of inner motivation and desire to prove doubters wrong.

    I think everyone agrees that Dwyane Wade is ISFP.

    Steve Nash - ExTP

    Dwight Howard - ESFP: Really a kid in a grown man's body. Extremely laid back, friendly (possibly ESTP), players and coaches love him. I still say F over T because he gets really emotional sometimes on the court.

    Lebron's an ESFP. You can tell Se users right off the bat sometimes by looking into their eyes. Their eyes move all over the place, scanning the room and their surroundings, shifting from one place to another. Watch videos of Lebron OFF the court and you'll see him doing it.

    Kobe's an ISFJ.

    Michael Jordan was an ENFJ.

    Shaq ISFP. Magic Johnson was some kind of SFP (can't really tell if he's E or I).

    You mentioned that primary Se users have their eyes scan their surroundings. Well, I've seen Magic do this, plus I've seen others type him and I agree with them - ESFP.

    Kobe and Shaq - I went through them before.

    Can you explain Jordan as ENFJ? I heard someone else mention Jordan as ENFJ too.

    The existence of proffessional INTP athletes both shocks and disturbs me.

    it could be completely wrong, so factor that in.

    i think tim duncan, steve nash, and robert horry are the most likely to be right. bird could easily be an istp as could dr j.
