    Default Maria Sharapova

    I am a big tennis fan so I decided to put one of my favorite players up for VI. I think she is pretty cool but sports commentators are always going on and on about how antisocial and unfriendly she is in real life .

    So guys what type do you think she is?

    Purrty. Maybe EXXj?

Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love."

    I was sort of seeing IXXp myself. I do not have a strong opinion on what her type is but I get the impression that she is a logical type from a quadra.

    I've watched a couple of videos. I think ESFp is possible.

    She has thoroughly mastered the logical, monotone American drawl. Could she be a LSE?

    Exactly. I made the same connection.

    I could more easily see her as nearly anything else except ESFp. Her reputation for being an extremely cool, anti-social, unfriendly, loner (at least a lot a tennis commentators and other players who have met her thinks she is) just sort of does not seem ESFp. Some have even said she would probably make more money through endorsements if she was "nicer" and more "outgoing". Her reputation seems a lot like the reputation some ISTps/"introverted" ESTjs have. I just cannot see her as the dual of an INTp.

    Yes, I can see the similarities.

    My first thought was actually SLI (like about 50% of rediculously good-looking women whom none of us will ever sleep with ), but I really don't know much about her.

    I think she's either ISTp or ESTj. And her comments about being a business person point toward rather than away from it, IMO.

    I think ISTp makes sense.

    LSE. I created a thread about her some time ago and Rick gave some reasons regarding why she is LSE: Type of Michelle Wie

    I remember watching an interview of Sharapova once and when she listed stamp collecting as her favorite hobby, and she is rumored to be dating Andy Roddick (not sure about his type). Anyway, I find SLIs unlikely to let off their steam in the court by howling like an alarm siren everytime they hit the ball. She could be LSE Te subtype. LSE Te subtype can be seen "cool, anti-social, and unfriendly", and Sharapova seems to be a rational type. Even though SLIs might have such qualities, I realize that SLIs appear friendlier despite their quietness and cool demeanor, and people are more easily drawn to them.

    Delta ST makes sense. I can't rule out ESTj either based on VI. I think ESTjs often have that kind of slim and tall figure with very "stiff" back (or is it "graceful posture").
