I play a lot and watch a lot of sport, and as I have recently been looking into socionics more in depth, I wonder on the applicability of it to a sporting team. Most sports I do at the momet are small in terms of team size (tennis, 5 a side football, volleyball) but I have noticed that there are certain people I play best with, namely my kindred, activity and identity partners. Surprisingly to me, I do not play well with my dual, maybe this is due to a small sample size and thus external factors.
So I have a range of questions and it would be great to hear differing opinions. Also if anyone else has personal experience in such things, please discuss.
Most of the time I am going to refer to football (Soccer) as I know this sport best.
Also some of these questions assume similar skill/fitness level/experience.
Would having the whole team consisting of one quadra work well? In terms of both team cohesion and creativity?
What about having the defense as one quadra, midfield and forwards as another?
What intertype relations would theoretically work best between each position (ie should 2 forwards be identity, to best understand each others intentions and get into the right position to carry forward the attack. Or would this lack creativity, and make both forwards easier to mark for the defense)?
Are certain information elements more important in different positions? Maybe Se for defense, or Ne for a 'creative' midfield player? Or would this all depend on what types occupy other areas of the field?
So thats the basic questions for now, to get everyone thinking in the right vein. There are more, but I am sure they will come up at some point
