What do we mean by an athlete's mind?
I was once told by a recruiter that I didn't get the job because the hiring committee said I came across as "a real athlete". When I asked her what that meant, she seemed as puzzled as I was. She said, "they felt you really thought like an athlete. That's why you didn't get the job." I laughed, and said to her, yes, I do think like one, that's likely not to change. She agreed and we laughed a bit, but I left our conversation still curious. What does that mean, to think and behave like an athlete? Is that a bad thing? Or can that be a good thing?
