    I think you can type Jesus, at least as he is presented to us. Was he a 2, though? He seemed a little too front-and-center to be a 2 if you ask me. Aren't 2s more interested in being power behind the throne?

    PS: which leads me to my question, what happened to all the 8s in movies? there were a ton of them up until the turn of the millenium, now almost everyone is movies is a 6 of some sort
    Just because 2s don't tend - tend - to enjoy doing traditionally "badass" things*, that doesn't mean they are somehow inferior. I don't think that was what you were implying, but it did end up sounding kinda like that... I generally dislike "one-upmanship contests" between types - it kinda misses the point of personality typology.

    Also, does your question refer to a specific genre, like action movies? Because I think Sixes have been used as protagonists for quite a while - they come in handy, so to speak, when the topic being explored is social issues or the anxieties of contemporary life. (No offence intended, Sixes. )

    * Police officers being one of the most notable exceptions. SFJs are attracted to that profession more than other types.

    you are correct, it wasn't my point to say that 2s are inferior (I usually don't like them, but inferior is not the right word). however, lets face it, the adventures of an 8 cp 6 or 4 are usually going to be much more exciting and sell more tickets. my arguments were strictly business related in regards to the movie industry

    that's called Te. make things as simple as they can go, but no simpler. find the problem and solve it. it is a waste of cognitive recources and time to try to endlessly analyze a trend that has a simple explanation.

    His objective wasn't to be in power or on a throne. It was to help people. Him coming into popularity during his lifetime was a consequence of that. Similar to Mother Theresa.

    Ah, OK. I get it now. Thanks.

    have you thoroughly read the Bible? I'm not meaning this as an attack, but if Jesus can be typed, I believe it could only be done by a person who thoroughly understands the Bible. if I were to guess (that's all I could really do) I would say he was gut center, I would think a 1 or an 8. his energy was passionate, ardent and intense

    Well, I think it's rather rich that you think Jesus can't be typed yet anime characters can?

    Jesus is a 2. Deal with it.

    I guess I can't speak for others, but I take serious issue with this . I would make a terrible cop. I can't just walk up to someone and start telling them what to do out of nowhere, that's like totally inappropriate.

    Seriously lolling at the idea of Jesus being an 8.
