Information: Does your athlete prefer to focus on the basic information you offer or do they prefer to interpret and add meaning? This is called Sensing (S) or Intuition (N).
Myers Briggs Decisions: When making decisions, does your athlete look at logic and consistency or first look at the people and special circumstances? This is called Thinking (T) or Feeling (F). Structure: In dealing with the outside world, does your athlete prefer to get things decided or prefer to stay open to new information and options? This is called Judging (J) or Perceiving (P).
