On this week’s show Dr Jenny Susser unpacks the many intricate personality traits that make the difference between participating and winning in sport. We discuss egoism, self-importance, selfishness, narcissism and how these are all on a spectrum with no one size fits all. What kind of person is attracted to individual sport versus a team sport.

We don’t have all the answers but we peel off some of the layers to better understand what make an athlete elite.
