I think Jordon’s motivation is predominantly ‘intrinsic’ and to some extent ‘extrinsic’ as well. ‘Intrinsic’ because he loved the game, challenges and he played for the sake of the game, come success or failure. He simply loved his beloved game never realizing that he would be this successful. However, the challenges from the opponents, the electrified crowd and the recognition that he was one of the ‘most recognizable’ sportsmen ever served as ‘extrinsic’ motivation to continue to push himself hard to the point of becoming perfect in the game.
He is type 3 personality.
