Analyze the Followers: A Phase II Analysis of MBTI

Intuition is a predilection to anticipate a given outcome.  While, some are said to have better intuitive capacity than others, much is attributable to skill.  Research has shown that intuitions work best when two conditions are met:  a regular environment with repeating patterns and patterns encountered with enough frequency that rapid feedback is received (Coates, 2102). Athletics is one environment in which both conditions are met with regularity. Therefore, analyzing one’s innate personality type, in this case Myers-Briggs Type Inventory (MBTI) affords a researcher the opportunity to predict the respondent’s likelihood to acclimate well within a given team set.



The first study in this series examined how a leader, (in this case a collegiate coach’s Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) impacted variability in the selection of staff, coaches and players on the team in a Southeastern Conference university from that of a normal sample population.  Outcomes were published by SRCEA in 2016 under “Follow the Leader: A Team Approach to MBT.”  In phase two, the study examines how the intensity of the personality types identified in the initial study either continue as identified, vary toward a different team type, or produces an entirely different pattern of randomness
