    Default STJ vs. STP athletes

    Athletes...I have trouble telling the difference between these two.

    In a bowling tournament, both types will keep focused on their game. But the STP will be the one smoking using the ashtray built into the ball return.

    Kobe Bryant - ISTJ
    Michael Jordan - ISTP

    As ISTs they have many similarities though Kobe as a J is more focused and task oriented whereas Jordan as a P is more adventurous and would even golf and play cards all day before games. Kobe instead would meditate.

    Were you thinking of basketball @Giggly by the way when you made this thread?

    Others include:
    Ray Allen - ISTJ
    Rajon Rondo - ISTP
    Dirk Nowitzski - ISTJ
    Jason Kidd - ISTP
    Manu Genobli - ISTJ
    Tim Duncan - ISTP

    There are plenty of other examples I am sure though that's all I can think of for now.

    Ooooh I like that.

    I was thinking of all "traditional" sports not just basketball in particular. I wanted to exclude extreme sports.

    There is a difference in concentration between the two types. STJs will be focused on the task ahead, on their duty to perform, as such, whereas STPs will be focused on winning and fun. Both drives can look very similar when they are aimed at the same thing, but the STP will probably less serious in behaviour, until he steps up to the plate, at which point they become literally 'in the moment' with what they are doing and seem to have immense focus, whereas an STJ will probably exude focus from the get-go, and look more cautious overall, more focused on anything that might disturb his plan and double check things for that. I dunno how to explain it, but STJs look more calm and persistent, and STPs look more intense and in perfect harmony with their environment and motions.

    I would say STJs have more of a desire to be perfect, where as STPs have a desire to just always get better

    STJ's are more "proper" in their techniques while playing a sport. More by the book skills than an STP would ever have a desire to do.

    of course, we dont read atleast not a rule book. STPs go more by what works for them instead of trying to mimmick "proper" technique. Sometimes its "proper" sometimes its not.
