This is for the NCAA Football & NFL Head Coaches.

Here's what I got:

INTJ
Bill Belichick (NE Patriots)
Nick Saban (Alabama)
Urban Meyer (Florida)

ENTP
Pete Carroll (Seattle Seahawks)

ENTJ
Gene Chizik (Auburn)

INFJ
Chris Petersen (Boise State)
Jeff Tedford (Cal)
Rick Neuheisel (UCLA)

ENFJ
Lou Holtz (Notre Dame, South Carolina) - the most senile ENFJ ever
Houston Nutt (Ole Miss)
Frank Beamer (VA Tech)

ESTJ
Bo Pelini (Nebraska)
Tom Cable (Oakland Raiders)

ESFJ
Steve Spurrier (South Carolina)
Brian Kelly (Notre Dame)

I have questions on:
1. Mike Holmgren, Rex Ryan, Lane Kiffin, Mike Shanahan, Mike Tomlin, Jim Harbaugh, and John Harbaugh
2. Any _NFP head coaches out there?
3. Correct me if I'm wrong?

Why do you think Urban Meyer is an INTJ?
He's very calm, doesn't show any emotion except when he's mad, and doesn't really celebrate victories.

I think he's an NTJ because he doesn't take any BS or let problems go under the carpet. If he sees a problem he'll address it. He's also VERY arrogant. He also takes very calculated risks (4th down situations). Takes an NT to come up with his offense schemes.

I don't see any S or P in him.

I would say Kiffin is an ENTP fosho, I mean, the shit that comes outa this guys mouth XD. And Carrol imo is an ENFP.

Those I'm not sure on, but as a huge BSU fan living in the Treasure Valley I approve of your typing of Pete. I'd also say Chizik is an ESTJ, I was gonna say ESFJ but although ESFJ's can be a hard ass I don't think they'd let the team be a bunch of thugs... But I suppose if that doesn't violate his beliefs he could be an ESFJ....

I think Pete could be an ENFJ though just because he doesn't talk much in his interviews and stuff doesn't mean he's an introvert, that's just his philosophy. And he cares as much about improving the players as people as he does their playing skills, I mean a couple years ago he suspended our star reciever (at the time) Jeremy Childs for poor grades. If I remember right he had a D in 1 class, lol. And Hout, the guy who got punched, got in trouble with Pete for talking shit to Blount..... After he had been punched, lol. So yeah I'm actually thinkin' ENFJ for him.

What about some of the big name players? Cam Newton - ESTP, Kellen Moore (golden boy) - INTJ, actually think Moore might be an ISTJ too.

Kiffin does come across to be a TP, but wasn't sure about I/E or N/S.

Carroll does have a soft side, I think I can agree he's an ENFP. Kind of like having Will Farrell as your coach. LOL

Any INFP coaches or well-known players out there? I know Peyton Manning is ENFJ.

INTPs, in terms of sports, should be in golf (Tiger Woods? LOL), archery, or 'self' sports where you're just competing against yourself.

I put Kiffin as an ENTP mainly because of his sense of humor seems ENTP, I find that typing people as a whole personality instead of going through each individual letter is easier.

I think it is hard to find players with a P in general just because of the work ethic sports take. Not saying there are none, or that P's are lazy, it's just kind of like the military in how it is just suited better to J's.

I don't know if you count poker as a sport but I think there are likely quite a few P's in there.

I think Sean Payton is an ENTP, he's a ballsy play caller and tends to throw all caution into the wind and it usually works in his favor. Also the types of players he picks up (all of them have a chip on their shoulder and something to prove) he knows they perform better in the long run than the flashy players. Very intuitive of him.

Curious to know, where would you guys put the mad hatter Les Miles as far as personality goes?

I actually think he might be INTP, he doesn't seem to be overly emotional like a lot of other coaches, he has quite creative plays, and he's just crazy lol.



edit: seriously though, after coach Pete Les is my favorite coach. And INTP's when they age tend to get wackier when they're old and start out their lives more rigid, we kind of age backwards that way and I think Les is a good example (assuming he's an INTP)

Les Miles is in a category of his own. Have you heard his speeches or seen him eat grass? LOL!

A very senile ENTJ or ESTJ? As a former O. lineman under Bo Schembechler, I'm guessing E_TJ

Sean Payton does seem too introverted & private to be an extrovert. INTP is a good guess, but he also seems like a softy (F)

Any thoughts on Tuna (former Dallas Cowboys head coach) or Mike Strahan?

Eatin' grass and takin' names! Yea that man's crazy haha

And I was tempted to say Payton's an I but he ran around with the Lombardi Trophy for weeks after the SB walking up to everyone and demanding they "touch greatness"

Is it just me or _N_Ps focus on offense and _S_Js focus on defense?

If I were offensive coordinator in college football, I'd go all out shotgun/pistol with options, play-action passes, and 4-5 receiver sets. I love watching Oregon's and Auburn's offenses, and West Virginia when RichRod was there.

Rich Rodriguez seems E_T_-ish, but I can't figure out if he's N or S.

Agreed with Rex Ryan being an ENFP, so identical to Pete Carroll.

Any thoughts on Will Muschamp & Charlie Weis? The 2 new coaches for Florida Gators. I think Muschamp is ESTJ and Weis is ESFJ.

Yeah, I think Pete Carroll and Rex Ryan are both ENFPs. Lane Kiffin is type douche, in my opinion (sorry, UT is my second team). What about Joe Paterno?

Joe Paterno I think is an E_FJ, can't figure out if he's an N or S. At that age, I think he's developed both. I don't know if he's typable.

I don't follow CFL though

Now that Ed Orgeron has taken over for USC, somehow I've renewed by interest in MBTI. I'd say he's ESFJ. The E and F seem obvious to me.

Not so fast, my friend!

I've gotta think that Urban Meyer's an INFJ. He always seems to me like a really sensitive guy, he takes an innovative approach to a lot of what he does, he gives really impassioned speeches. Otherwise, I would agree with his typing; I'd call him an INFJ.

This is for the NCAA Football & NFL Head Coaches.

Here's what I got:

INTJ
Bill Belichick (NE Patriots)
Nick Saban (Alabama)
Urban Meyer (Florida)

ENTP
Pete Carroll (Seattle Seahawks)

ENTJ
Gene Chizik (Auburn)

INFJ
Chris Petersen (Boise State)
Jeff Tedford (Cal)
Rick Neuheisel (UCLA)

ENFJ
Lou Holtz (Notre Dame, South Carolina) - the most senile ENFJ ever
Houston Nutt (Ole Miss)
Frank Beamer (VA Tech)

ESTJ
Bo Pelini (Nebraska)
Tom Cable (Oakland Raiders)

ESFJ
Steve Spurrier (South Carolina)
Brian Kelly (Notre Dame)

I have questions on:
1. Mike Holmgren, Rex Ryan, Lane Kiffin, Mike Shanahan, Mike Tomlin, Jim Harbaugh, and John Harbaugh
2. Any _NFP head coaches out there?
3. Correct me if I'm wrong?
