I would have to label Jordan as an intrinsically motivated athlete. His drive and desire comes from the love for the game, he even said it in the video that he competes for the love of the game, he didn’t expect the success he would have. Another point that would indicate that he is intrinsically motivated would be that he got cut from his High School basketball team which drove him to compete and get better. I would also have to label Jordan as a type 3 personality. In the video he stated that he his motivation is to compete and find different forms of competition. He sees the silver lining in his “failure” and is able to learn from it to get better.
