    What is the most common personality type among sportsmen?

    I read somewhere that EXTROVERTS tend to do better on most sports.

    Can you give some input on this topic based on research, or your own experience if you happen to work with sportsmen?

    Is there a set of sports that appeal to Introverts, or even to a specific Personality Type?

    Do you know any study that has been done on this subject? Where are the results?

    thank you all!

    INFP - The Idealists

    It seems that ISTPs often make good athletes. I imagine team sports have an appeal to Extroverts, or maybe SJs. I'd go with sensors being the most athletically inclined. I know N men into sports, but I know way more who couldn't care less. It's rare for me to meet an S man who has no interest in sports or athletic activity.

    I participated competitively in athletics up until after high school.

    INTP - The Thinkers

    This is kinda of a dead thread but I'm new so who cares. "Hocking" how did you do that it seems imposable while being a INTP. But that is going by the stereotype which I fit into pretty well. When I try and mess up once it sucks everybody rips on me so badly. God get over it it's a game! Lol anyway, I tend to think of people who play sports as people who think there better then everybody else.

    Incorrect conclusion = Fail

    Life experiences and values are much more likely to impact one's choice of activities than is one's MBTI type.

    If ESTP's are the best at sport, does it mean that INFJ's are horrible at it ?

    I don't think that ESTPs are better at sports than any other type, only they are generally more likely to enjoy it and take it as a career.

    ENFP - The Inspirers

    I'm an ENFP and I think that lends itself to sports quite well. I also think sports is a little too general. Now if we were talking about what types tend to like what sports that would be interesting.

    If anyone is interested google whatever type you are and add athletes to the end for me it would be "ENFP athletes" and pick some quotes or examples about your personality type doing different sports.
