Michael Jordan was intrinsicly motivated. He loved the game of basketball, and played for his enjoyment. This is what made him one of the greatest basketball players of all time. He was doing it for himself not anyone else. He mentions how he never faced a bigger competitor than himself. He thrived from the competition he faced. His need for achievement versus fear of failure is very high. Michael Jordan is a true champion, and almost a one of kind type of athlete.
