    Actually a better question would be, why do SPs ...

    I shall keep this post in mind, come back to you in another year and ask you whether you are sure he is an istp and not an istj. Lolz! I agree with you and had this istp colleague who has never done or has never been interested in sports.

    Sports are fun. I love the developing of skills aspect and the physicality. I feel totally alive when I am playing sport. As opposed to mostly numb the rest of the time. Sport gives me passion and feeling that I generally lack otherwise in life. I fight to win as though my life depends on it. And living like that is exciting. Also for an SP, living in the moment is our favourite place to be. And in the middle of a match, on the pitch, making split second decisions is the one place you completely and truly live in the moment.

    The bruises and blood and pain from sport remind me that I am alive.

    Oh boy.




    Even Keirsey wouldn't approve of this, I'm pretty sure. Read that whole chapter that mentions how ISTPs are sometimes doctors.

    @OP: Because you're defining an ISTP as someone who plays sports.

    OMG if I was an ISTP that would be a fucked up tert Ni realization moment LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL

    Because ISTJs never play sports?

    What the fuck is wrong with people in this thread?

    yeah that's true about the defining. i just saw istp and responded without thinking about it much.
    Don't know how much it'll bend til it breaks.

    Why do ISTPs play sports? The same reason all these people play sports:

    The comment about where her husband was an istj was a joke. That's why I added a lolz after the sentence just incase. However sps do seem to be interested in sports a 'bit' more than some other types. I was going to use the word 'excel' instead of 'interested' but decided not to.
