I think Jordan’s source of motivation was largely intrinsic, in the video he stated, “I Played the sport because I loved it.” He wasn’t in the game for success. that happened as a result of his effort on a daily basis.

He also states that his competitive drive is far greater than anyone else he’s met, which he thrives on. Another reason why he is intrinsically motivated is that he is motivated by competing and searching out challenges to overcome.

I believe that Michael Jordan is a Type 3 in terms of his motivation for competition personality type. He loves competition and also realises that winning isn’t always possible but he doesn’t view defeat as a negative.
