    Ego doesn't have a type limitation. ANY type can be egotistical. And not all ISTJs accept convention, plus the very high Fi. I've explained far more on Kobe so I don't have to go in depth on this. Like you said, we'll agree to disagree.

    I agree that Gilbert is definitely NFP, but I think he's INFP. He is a self-proclaimed 'hermit' who likes to be alone.

    Shaq is all over the internet/television/radio waves, going back on past remarks, creating drama, etc. Dude craves the attention.

Frankly, if he were an isfp, he'd have left already.
    I'm not so sure that's true. What would make an ISFP more likely to leave? And he doesn't appear unhappy at all in Toronto. I mean, they're not winning, but he's still young. Admittedly, this is a tough one too. Bosh is definitely an introvert though.

    Haha wow, Dwight creates the opposite in me. He's a very upbeat type of guy, seemingly talking to everyone. He's a practical joker, playing these practical jokes on people, a kid at heart. To me he fits the ESFP type description, although I could potentially see ENFP too. But he seems too energetic, social, jovial, and gregarious to be an INFP.

    I don't think Kobe has high Fi. If anything, his Ni (if we're still thinking mbti) is off the charts. Interviewed immediately after winning the 2009 title, he remarked how he'd "envisioned" (or using a synonym along those lines) winning the title years back.

    enfp seems the strongest possibility for Howard, yeah. You got me!

    I love v.i.!

    The pent-up sadness during his booing in 2002 in Philadelphia, he always used to be proud of his clean image,

    Plus the TJ drive and perseverence that he has with his goals to be one of the best ever.

    SJ shows in devotion to duty vs. partying with the teammates.

    But like you said, we'll agree to disagree, since I went through this in detail earlier.

    How do you reckon that he was sad? TV? Quotes? Remember that all sports are, first and foremost, entertainment.

    I remember Kobe driving up to my highschool to pick up Vanessa Lane when I was a freshman. Meeting your duality partner that you'd spend the next 10 years of your life with can drastically improve the lives of both involved, allowing you to function as part of a greater whole without any noticeable effort on either's part (apart from being in each other's vicinity). Maybe only when removed do both parties realize the need to make adjustments to simply be together.

    The above should be considered a possibility.

    Or maybe Kobe has always been responsible. God knows he didn't learn from his father.

    I was thinking of Ben Gordon all playoffs long. Darn guy likes that money a heck of a lot, so I guess istj would be a better fit. But he seems to sit on one side or the other of that super-ego distinction.

    I knew he was sad because he said "my feelings are hurt" at the 2002 All-Star Game in Philadelphia. He was upset and hurt that the crowd disrepsected him because he has tremendous loyalty to both Philly and Italy.

    Gordon is one of the quietest players in the NBA, at least on the court. He has that admirable quiet confidence. I could definitely see ISTJ fitting him too. And I agree on Mark Jackson as ISTJ too, I can tell from watching him on ABC lol.

    Allen Iverson is a clear ISFP, in my estimation. Watch him speak in a non-basketball context.

    Michael Jordan was an NFJ of some sort (though, people have such a limited view of NFJ's that they'll disagree with that).

    Have to add two more here:

    Dennis Rodman - ENFP
    Ron Artest - ENFP

    Very possible. I thought he was definitely ISxP, actually was leaning toward ISTP, but he's either that or ISFP.

    Jordan was an NFJ? I heard many reports stating he was ISTP.
