    It always creeped me out how people would get this notion like I played a lot of sports seemingly out of thin air. Until I tested as ISTP/p I used to think they just loved to imagine me getting my face smashed in or some other malevolent thought. I think such insinuation of competition stems from criticism of our honesty. As one assumes the ISTP likes to pick fights which is often not the case.

    I do not enjoy the usual crowd that frequents gyms that usually have a less than confident and enthusiastic nature. I like to work out at home its interesting learning how the body works like limbering up and chiropractory stuff.
    Mastery is its own reward.

    Not all ISTP's play sports. It largely depends upon their early lifehood; relative developmental opportunities.

    INTP's and ISTP's appear to be very similar in childhood. The difference is an ISTP will eventually do SOMETHING to develop themselves physically. Where the INTP is simply a cranium that happens to have a body that carries it around.

    Team sports, especially the strategy opportunities offered in basketball or soccer are appealing to an ISTP. Gives us something to think about in addition to moving around. Also ISTP's are very cool under pressure during such activities; and as Bamboo stated in an earlier post will practice an element for hours and not get bored with it.

    Daily physical activity is very helpful to an ISTP in keeping emotionally balanced; and breaking any potential cycle of monotony for falling into the ISTP logical loop of doom rut. Freedom of physical movement is very therapudic and satisfying. ISTP will literally play until exhausted, then want to play more if they're still having fun.

    ISTPs will destroy all opposition without mercy and with a relentless drive to achieve the great and the impossible!
