Dr. Bob Rodgers, Ph.D
Primary Sports Psychology & MBTI™ Consultant
Robert F. Rodgers, Ph.D., is Emeritus Associate Professor of Psychology and Education at The Ohio State University. He has been on the Faculty of Psychology and Education since 1974. Dr. Rodgers’ teaching and research focuses on personality type (Braincode) and psychosocial and cognitive-structured development. He investigates questions concerning the integrated use of type and various developmental perspectives in designing, teaching, workshop, retreat, coaching, and organization development practice. He also studies issues concerning gender conditioning and type preference.
Dr. Rodgers has taught a graduate class on Psychological Type™, covering both type and temperament theory since 1976. The class covers type theory and research, the construction and validity of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator™ (MBTI™), and the uses of type to design professional practice in a number of fields. He has done evaluative research comparing practice design with and without the use of type. Currently, he is looking into whether gender condition or type may be responsible for some of the perceived differences between men and women in Caucasian, African-American and Latino cultures.
He uses type (Braincoding™) in his consulting with athletic teams, teaching and learning, organization development and team building. He has been a consultant to The Ohio State University’s men’s and women’s golf teams and a variety of service, religious, and commercial organizations.

About Kip Rodgers
Every day, I read the headlines about athletes who struggle and end up making poor choices. Memorable headlines include Junior Seau and Johnny Manziel. Recent headlines include the horrific abuse in USA Gymnastics and the suicide of a D1 quarterback at Washington State.
The banners I read show athletes get arrested, released, benched, sustain career-ending injuries, and get taken advantage of by others. And, on occasion, an athlete makes the drastic choice to take their life leaving behind stunned teammates, family, friends, and fans.
