    Default Why do ISTPs play sports?

    The best type for sports is ISTP and their assassin's mentality! Discuss:

    because they're fun and much more tolerable than the gym.

    Not all do but it's a good way to keep the ADD mind of an SP focused.

    stay sharp, and entertaining.

    sometimes when I'm bored I like to play "the brick game". find a wall. pick a brick. throw ball - hit the brick. when it bounces, catch the ball. i can do this forever.

    i'm like a labrador retriever with opposable thumbs.

    if i ever get a chance at a dunk tank i'll be ready.

    true, that's not a sport but i'm working on getting into soccer or something. i never did team sports but i want to get into them now.
    Don't know how much it'll bend til it breaks.

    I believe it has a lot to do with Se. From what I have noticed (I notice great many things) Se types are the most keen on sports and who have the best physical structures. This is not limited to SPs. Even NJs have fairly firm structures and are comparatively more interested in sports than SJs and NPs.

    And I have mentioned this before that Se types seem firmer and stronger than Si types.

    Nothing builds character like having your finger snapped in some linebacker's shoulderpads.

    Because they're good at them and have a good chance of winning?

    My ISTP husband doesn't play sports and never has. So not all ISTPs are drawn to sports. However, every once in a while he will want to do something physical like mow the lawn or take a walk. He's told me that it helps center him when he does activities like these.
