What's Your Myers-Briggs Type? How Do You Think it Affects Your Golf Game?


Recommended Posts

Just an interesting thought I had the other day. I'll start us off. I am an INTJ. I'm SUPER analytical and process-driven which is great for my golf game; however, I am also SUPER self-critical which isn't so much of a good thing for golf. 

Golf is such a mental game, your personality must have at least some influence on the way you play the game in my opinion. What are your thoughts? Am I way off here?

Another INTJ here, and I too am super self critical.  It can be a problem.  

I've taken several of these and sometimes I'm also an ENTJ.  I must just skirt the line between extroverted and introverted.

I'm an INFJ but My F & N traits are close. I'm analytical, but I find it get's in my way since I'm always trying new swing techniques and never settle on one.

You've described also and i have the same problem.

INTJ - its taken me a few years to control my self criticism on the golf course. One bad swing or a horrible break used to ruin the round. I’m always interested in the “why” of the golf swing and the data behind my rounds.

ISTJ here - although nearly extrovert at the start, taken this before and go back and forth between extrovert and introvert.
