Lorenzo Cain


  • Honest & straightforward
  • Carefully thinks through decisions
  • Good at sticking with a routine


  • May be too blunt or difficult socially
  • May not push themselves hard
  • Resists change without good reason

Coaching Tip:

This type prefers coaches to be calm, composed and objective. Most importantly, this type does best with a coach that is consistent — one that reacts the same way to similar events and situations.

Athlete Tip:

The Engineer type will tend to be concerned about the ability to make correct decisions in competition and in general. Engineers should try not to second guess their decisions, especially after the game or competition. Life will become easier for them if they can reduce second guessing decisions.

Parent/Mentor Tip:

This type sees things as cut and dried, black and white. Help him deal with those gray areas of life.

About the Engineer Athlete Type™

Why knowing Athlete Type™ is important

The TAP Athlete Types™

More than 30,000 elite athletes have taken the TAP assessment over the years creating the richest database of this kind on the planet.  A deep statistical analysis of the TAP database based on the actual answers by these elite athletes revealed eight (8) distinct Athlete Types™ (more than personality), each with their own strengths, weaknesses, and particularly effective coaching techniques to help each type maximize their potential.

The TAP Athlete Types™ are beneficial in a variety of ways

  • Athlete Types™ provide a high level overview of an individual’s mental make-up
  • They introduce a common framework for coaches and athletes to better understand and interact with one another
  • They provide a positive self-identifying image for athletes
  • Most find it interesting and fun to learn their Athlete Type™ and share it with others
