College student-athletes face many unique role strains during their academic and athletic career, which may impact the way in which they understand themselves. This study was designed to explore whether college student-athletes have a different perceived personality preference than their non-athlete counterpart. Ninety-one college students took the Myers-Brigg Type Indicator. The researchers found no statistical differences between the athletes and the non-athletes, however, several of the results seemed noteworthy and are presented.
