Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.
Sterling has a jock personality and has a great interest in sports and bodybuilding. Jock villagers are hyperactive and motivated, but often come across as self-centered and dense. As a jock villager, Sterling is very interested in his hobby, and may compete against the player at catching bugs and fish. Jock villagers get along with peppy, cranky and sisterly villagers, but conflict with the laid-back lifestyle of lazy villagers. Snooty villagers may also be difficult to get along with for Sterling.
In City Folk, Sterling's house has a Japanese theme, with a deer scare and a birdhouse. If Sterling has a stereo, it will play King K.K.
In New Leaf, Sterling's house instead has a more medieval theme. His room is decorated with a Library Wall and a Palace Floor. His furniture includes two pieces from the Gorgeous Series: the Table and the Sofa, along with two sets of Plate Armor and two Rooks. His phonograph now plays Lucky K.K.. In New Horizons his house is a jail theme house and has a cassette player that plays K.K. Dirge.
