Jim Brown -ISTP
Bruce Lee - INFJ
Rashad Evans -ISFP
Anderson Silva - ISFP
Ronda Rousey ISFP
Wayne Gretzky -STP
Lebron James ISTP
Chael Sonnen -ESTP


SFP are frontrunners. Compare Carmelo Anthony to Lebron James or Jordan. STP/NFJ, Fe/Ti are team players. Rashad Evans, Melvin Guilliard, Overeem, all front runners. Junior Dos Santos is another frontrunner too. BJ Penn. ISFP.

I think Penn is an ISFP. I also said the Diaz's are ISFP, but somebody said ISTP. Could be inferior Fe.

I think Mcgregor is a Fe dom. ESFJ or ENFJ. Good at rallying people. Lesnar -ISTJ

Joe Rogan has no fuckin Fe whatsoever. I think he is using Fi. ESFP or ENFP. I think Dana is an ESFP too. Celebrity types actually has him listed as ESFP. lol. Tito is definitely an ESFP.

Great responses by everyone, here are some more fighters I have typed:

Joe Rogan- ESFP
Dana White- ESFP
Conor Mcgregor- ESFJ
Brock Lesnar- ISTJ
Diaz Brothers- ISFP
BJ Penn- ISFP/ISTP
Bruce Lee- ISTP/INFJ
Anderson Silva- ESFP/ISFP
Chael Sonnen- ESTP
Cain Velasquez- ISTJ
Carlos Condit- ISTP
Chuck Liddell- ISTP
Rhonda Rousey- ISFP

Not sure why I typed Chuck Liddell as an ESTJ in my original post, I now think he is ISTP. Bruce Lee is very difficult to type but I think he is either ISTP or INFJ. ISTP and INFJ have the same functions just in a different order and also Ti doms can look similar to Ni doms so it is difficult to differentiate. I think the best thing to do is to look at the auxiliary functions. ISTP has auxiliary Se and poor Fe, INFJ has auxiliary Fe and poor Se. Bruce Lee seems very presently grounded and very in touch with his external environment, when he talks about "being like water" and "Don't think, feel", I think he is really talking about moving fluidly and instinctively with the environment around himself. This seems an indicator of strong Se. Se users are very in tune with how their bodies connect to the external environment. He seems to feel exactly where to move and exactly how much force to apply with his body. Also Jungs description of the Introverted Intuitive type doesn't seem to fit Bruce Lee as well as the description of the introverted thinking type. Therefore I still think Bruce Lee is ISTP but there is certainly a chance of him being INFJ.

Also I still think GSP is ISFJ not ISTJ, he is quite warm and charismatic. he smiles a lot. he's great in interviews. Compare him to Rory Macdonald or Cain Velasquez who are ISTJ, much less expressive and charismatic. Seem to be very uncomfortable with interviews. I also know some ISFJ types and he seems just like them. Both ISTJ and ISFJ are going to be highly perfectionist and usually extremely hard workers.

Joe Rogan was also somewhat hard to type. My first thought was ENTP however he seems like a Te and Fi user. He seems like a sensor being a taekwondo champion and blackbelt in numerous martial arts. He is also a comedian. My best guess is ESFP.

Rogan is like a frat bro, but then goes off on these weird stoner rants.

I used to think Lee was a a clear cut ISTP too. He is an actor though too. He is honestly too warm and mentoring to be an ISTP. INFJ are probably the least feely feeling type, and most intense type. Lee basically merged religion with martial arts. He didn't change the Se aspect of it, he changed the Fe aspect of it. Traditional martial arts systems are untrue to people. They are false Gods. Propaganda.

Lee is like a religious figure, and spoke like one. I actually didn't like the guy because so many people believe he can kill anybody. But he has the perfect martial art philosophy, actually life philosophy. Who he can beat up is irrelevant.

I think he is a perceiving dom, and an extroverted judger. I actually think is one of the best descriptions of Ni-Fe:

"Concepts prevent feeling. Don't think-FEEL. Feeling exists here and now when not interrupted and dissected by ideas or concepts. The moment we stop analyzing and let go, we can start really seeing, feeling - as one whole. There is no actor or the one being acted upon but the action itself. I stayed with my feeling then - and I felt it to the full without naming it that. At last the I and the feeling merged to become one. The I no longer feels the self to be separated from the you, and the whole idea of taking advantage of getting something out of something becomes absurd. To me, I have no other self (not to mention thought) than the oneness of things of which I was aware at that moment."

I said before that Lee has a royal flush. He is very developed. He can appear to be nearly any type. Especially in this quadra. Which was his philosophy. When one has no form, one can be all forms. Lee is actually like a romantic. lol. Not saying ISTP can't be that, but still.. Here is an interesting story on Lee by Jackie Chan:

I think you are right. Supposedly Muhammad Ali is an INFJ and there are interesting parallels between Muhammad Ali and Bruce Lee. Perhaps it's the combination of Ni and Se but their movement is so fast and fluid they look like they move one step ahead of everyone else. They are also both very charismatic, which is not something ISTP's are known for. I have been associating Athleticism with high sensation functions but I don't think thats entirely accurate. Do you think Muhammad Ali is INFJ?

Now I think:
Muhammed Ali- INFJ
Bruce Lee- INFJ

Celebrity Types lists Ali as ESFJ. I can see that. He may be ENFJ too. Definitely think he is using Fe.

I thought about it and I have to change my mind again

Bruce Lee- ISTP/INFJ (Bruce Lee in my opinion has very strong Se I could see him as INFJ but I don't think he is)
Mike Tyson- ISFP/ISTP
Muhammed Ali- ESFJ

Also:
Floyd Mayweather- ESFP/ISFP
